Personally I’d say use something that brands yourself.

Also it makes it look like your last name is envato. I bet that will confuse some customers.

I actually migrated to gedit. I was using geany before but there is something to be said for a minimal ui.

Well there are only three products on TF named ‘village’: http://themeforest.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=Village

Ones a psd, ones html/css, and the other is a wordpress theme of yours ThemeProvince.

Only one of those things could throw an error. Next notice that he said ‘Themeforrest Village’ which does not make sense until you realize that he means ThemeProvince.

Sorry ThemeProvince but this is your customer :D

Ah sorry you’re right I should have known that.

Maybe adda slider and a bunch of static social media buttons.

Is this supposed to be a single page site? I imagine hosting compaies need atleast support pages.

Javascript’s security model does not allow arbitrary requests to arbitrary domains. Which is what one would need to implement a widget to pull headlines from arbitrary sites.

I am sick of this type of whining in the Web Development industry

Well sorry for having standards.

MDN is a vastly better resource yet new developers are not going to find it unless we put effort into promoting it.

I was eager to see the day when my 24 Carats PSD theme will “inspire” someone else. :)

Ah, I was wondering why there was a ‘second’ footer that didn’t match the rest of the style. On your theme it works well since you maintain a consitent colour scheme and it all looks like one footer.

Really? Because I do recall them letting that awful DMCA notice sender application get all sorts of attention on the forum.

Wait, don’t you need a lawyer to sign off on dmca take-down notices?

I want to help so here is some constructive criticism. The others are right, this design would simply not get accepted at themeforrest.

1. There is just about nothing there that could get styled with css. It would require so many images it is painful to think about. Personally the fewer images the better, this may seem odd because…

2. The design does not focus on the content, it should. Beautiful web design focuses on the content. In your empire design and in other print designer’s initial webdesigns I’ve seen the focus is instead on eye candy. Backgrounds and borders ca be done well but they are not what a web design should consist of.

3. Another painful issue is that text has been put on low contrast backgrounds. This is a big no-no, any text must be clearly readable on low-end monitors. Everything may look fine on a IPS Dell or Apple monitor but your visitors do not have those montors. They have a 17 inch that came with their HP in 2006.

My suggestion would be to learn some basic css while learning web design. Learning css should give you a better idea of what is easily possible.
