Thanks for the replies guys, I have decided to go with this framework. It seems to have everything I need and is fairly straight forward.

Hey guys, I have recently starting learning some heavier wordpress development so I can start making some wordpress templates to sell on themeforest. I have come to the point where I need to create a settings page for my template & It seems to me that everyone seems to do this using pre built frameworks. I have had a look at creating them from scratch & it does seem like a lot of effort to do. So im wondering what is the most popular or recommended options framework for theme development?

I was thinking about making a query image slider plugin. I know how to code up a simple image slider however i have noticed that the image sliders that sell these days have fancy effects. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how these effects are achieved or where I could learn. I am talking about the effects similar to the ones that come with Nivo Slider. Specifically the box splice effect

I have been working on a site for a client who wants the background of the site to be an image slider with a ken burns like effect. I have a feeling that the code I have used can be improved. I would be greatfull if you javascript wizards could have a look and let me know if there are any changes i should make.

Also I realise that these are rather large images. What steps can I take so that the images will loads faster, or maybe not start the slide show until the images are loaded.

Here is the code in action<http://www.damblio.com/ken/

$().ready(function(){

    var windowWidth = $(window).width();

    var imgWidth = windowWidth + 120;

    $('#slider img').css({'width': imgWidth,'margin-left': -60, 'margin-top': -60});    

    $('#slider img').hide();

    $('#slider img:first').show();

    //animate Content
    $('#header').delay(600).slideDown(1000);

    var total = $('#slider img').size();
    var count = '1';

    ken();

    $('#header').hover(function(){
        $('#hide').fadeIn();
    },function(){
        $('#hide').fadeOut();
    });

    $('#hide').click(function(){
        $('#header').animate({top:-600},500);
        $('#show').fadeIn();
    });

    $('#show').click(function(){
        $('#header').animate({top:100},500);
        $('#show').fadeOut();
    });

    $('#aboutLink').click(function(){
        $('#header').animate({top:-600},500);
        $('#aboutPage').delay(500).animate({left:100},500);
    });

    $('#hideAbout').click(function(){
        $('#aboutPage').animate({left:-550},500);
        $('#header').delay(500).animate({top:100},500);
    });

    function ken(){

        effectNumber = Math.floor(Math.random()*4)

        effect(effectNumber);

        function effect(number){
            if(number == 0){
            $('#slider img:nth-child(' + count + ')').animate({marginLeft:'-10px'},4500);
            }
            if(number == 1){
            $('#slider img:nth-child(' + count + ')').animate({marginLeft:'-110px'},4500);
            }
            if(number == 2){
            $('#slider img:nth-child(' + count + ')').animate({marginTop:'-110px'},4500);
            }
            if(number == 3){
            $('#slider img:nth-child(' + count + ')').animate({marginTop:'-10px'},4500);
            }
        }

    }

    function slider(){
        var previous = count - 1;
        if(count < total){
            $('#slider img:nth-child(' + count + ')').fadeOut(1000);    
            count++;
            $('#slider img:nth-child(' + count + ')').fadeIn(1000);
            $('#slider img:nth-child(' + previous + ')').css({'width': imgWidth,'margin-left': -120, 'margin-top': -120});
            ken();
        }else{
            $('#slider img:nth-child(' + count + ')').fadeOut(1000);
            $('#slider img:nth-child(' + previous + ')').css({'width': imgWidth,'margin-left': -120, 'margin-top': -120});
            count = '1';
             $('#slider img:first').fadeIn(1000);
             ken();
        }
    }

    setInterval(function(){
        slider();
    }, 5000);

});

There is not much need to do a course in design as most of it is online for free. However I would recommend purchasing some of the premium tutorials on the various tutsplus sites. Have a look at the the sites that have been submitted here and examine them closely. There is a really high standard of design on themeforest so it is a great place to learn it from.

Yeh it is. i didn’t notice that I had increased the letter spacing on all the type, so I tightened that up a bit and change some things. Not too sure about the new header.. Also still not keen on the font for the headers. What you think of the new changes?

Thanks! do you mean change it to something like helvetica or arial, or find a custom font to replace to one im using.

I’ve also added a few changes since I posted this, what do you think?
