Hello and Welcome. You mean you want a WordPress Theme. Themes are made up of several templates (of multiple kinds) usually.

Maybe this will help…

New admin skin is awesome.

I’ve noticed a common theme present itself, authors that decided to use non-native elements over what the WP UI already offered have had the most visual / layout problems. I’ve been playing with MP6 since 3.6 and it’s definitely grown on me.

This is general forum. Please use the “Comments” or “Support” tab of the item’s actual sales page so the author will actually see and be able to more easily respond to your questions. Otherwise, you will may not ever receive a reply.

An already well established author filed the DMCA tried in an attempt to use it in an anti-competitive / monopolistic fashion to keep newer legitimate author out of a niche market. The relatively quick turnaround on this injustice was commendable. Congrats to Envato for quickly seeing this for what it was and taking decisive action! :-)

Since you found “Black Label” to be “so complicated” then you’ll be likely hard pressed to find anything simpler that will fit your taste. As it is, “Black Label” is one of the simpler themes available. It’s even built on an very popular open source and widely documented framework called Bootstrap if you wanted to look under the hood. I suppose it’s a good thing you didn’t try to wrap your head around a “Multi-Purpose” theme, you probably would have perished before writing your post. – LOL.

You’re not expected to understand it all at once. Take it in small doses / bites. Did you read the included documentation? Did you contact the author for support (not through these forums – not what they’re for)?

Check out this book – http://digwp.com/book/

If you’re in a hurry and can’t afford to take it slow then your best bet might to be to simply hire a professional to handle such matters for you as brain splatters can be rather messy to clean up (according to what I’ve seen on TV). ;-)

Anyone else feel that Envato potentially considers the quiz more of a barrier to sales than new authors? Perhaps the thinking was along the lines of: More authors = more sales, Remove quiz = more sales. I’ve got to give them credit for spinning it like they’re altruistically helping new authors out though. ;-)

The item’s page says that’s not the most current version and at the bottom of it, there’s a change log. Most authors do this but not all are always up to date.

If you’re logged in, you can download the most recent file from the yellow area at the top right area of any item’s page.

If you want to know the version you’ve got in a downloaded (but not yet installed) zip file, simply take a look at the ubermenu.php file and look at the value of the “UBERMENU_VERSION” constant.

I ,too used a PC exclusively up until this year. The frustration you’ll avoid / debugging time you’ll save will pay for it. Going Mac doesn’t mean you have to completely leave your PC citizenship behind either. If you install Windows, you should be able to do just about anything your could on a real PC. It’s like having dual citizenship, like me. ;-)
