there’s really no need to design for the 800×600 screen any more. so make it wider and design for the 1024×768 screen.
True, I did not pointed that out because I thought the image was resized.
Great info. I agree on the number 1, working with 2 or 3 freelancer friends can really make a difference. It looks more professional.
Also, it’s great when you do not know something about some topic or technology and your mate does, or vice versa. It’s a great way of learning.
I would add another point: Having a great website. If the clients see that your website is really cool, they know that you are going to do a good work for them.
Congratulations, those themes are great!
Hi. Your mockup looks nice, I like the way you styled the “comments button”.
My advice would be to add some effect to the header and footer sections, maybe some gradients and borders.
Also you could add items to the featured article. Make it bigger, add buttons.
Hope that helps!
I think that Themeforest staff is able to solve this problem. Send them a message.
If you do not want to use a framework, my advice would be to always stick to valid and well written code. Also, it is always a good idea to test your theme even at early stages of the project.
In this particular theme, it seems that you should re-write some parts of the code.
As ArikB said, hand written code is always better than the generated one.
Maybe the people who do not want to work as coders, but want to build their own personal website, could use a WYSIWYG software for Wordpress. Anyway, I do not know of any.
