Dany,

don’t be so harsh.

Your theme uses the same basic layout as his does, and as do a lot of other themes on TF. So what, this does not seem to be a limiting factor though to most authors, as these are the types of templates being created and selected for sale on this marketplace, and people seem to be buying them. Perhaps we will see some very unique designs in the outside the box competition coming up soon, but, for now, the authors and reviewers seem to be sticking to the standard web page designs.

If he cleans it up and submits for approval, then good luck to him and perhaps it will get approved.

prototype.js?20090805060458

why are the numbers added to the end of the item? and what effect do they have?

you mean there is more than one?

wow, I guess it is buyer beware and know what you are buying or really whose work you are buying, kick the tires so to speak, and no I won’t mention anything about the actual template.

I don’t have Photoshop so maybe this is a stupid question.

When you create something like a logo, button or background slice, why wouldn’t you just create the image to be used on the web page at the same time instead of creating the logo, button, etc, in the PSD , then later slicing it up into images for the web and then using it?

I have never understood why this is not usually done.

I just discovered and used a Firefox tool called View Style Information and discovered that one of the site templates for sale on TF is using background images for major parts of the content area on the home page.

That is a big no-no as far as I am concerned.

It makes the page very difficult to change to what you want and was not something that I would expect to see on any template for sale here. I am not sure why the author would create their page that way, it is not that difficult to code up headings, etc and is much adaptable to what I might want to do with it if I buy the template.

that is why I want to see your code, the pretty picture revealed on the web page is not enough to entice me to buy, sorry.

in ie6, looks to me like the .container is being placed following the stuff on the right, not sure why but does not look like the absolute positioning is not working the way you think it should be. does abs positioning work the same in ie6 as in ie7, etc?

the other two, I don’t know
