It seems like themes like Avada and X dominate the marketplace. They’re the featured bestsellers thus giving people the confidence to purchase them, which perpetuates the cycle of bestsellers.

They’re great themes, don’t get me wrong, but just wondering if there’s any other new “sleeper” themes that aren’t getting enough love and are just getting buried. Hope to hear some good suggestions!

So I’m looking for a powerful javascript slider similar to LayerSlider 5. The wordpress version has a builder where you can add pictures, text, buttons, etc and layer them on top of each other, control position, animation, intro/exit timing etc. Is there something out there like this? Or is Adobe Edge Animated the best solution?

I’m trying to learn After Effects as an absolute beginner. I’m already an advanced Photoshop/Illustrator user although I don’t know much overlap there is.

Essentially I want to try and modify some openers I found on videohive: insert stock footage, add titles, position graphics. Any good tutorials/sites/courses that you would recommend? I’m looking for something recent, preferably for Creative Cloud. Thanks!

So I know having a dedicated IP is important because if your server gets blacklisted, that could hurt your search results. I was doing some searching around and found some surprising results.

Engadget – 744 associated domains, http://viewdns.info/reverseip/?host=engadget.com&t=1
Facebook – 108 associated domains, http://viewdns.info/reverseip/?host=facebook.com&t=1
Envato – 48 associated domains, http://viewdns.info/reverseip/?host=envato.com&t=1

Shouldn’t some of these larger sites have a dedicated IP? Most of the Alexa Top sites have a dedicated IP but I see lots of exceptions too. Does this have anything to do w/ cloud hosting? Or what?

So I want to optimize the way I manage syncing between dev -> production and reverting as needed. I’ve been using dreamweaver mainly, editing locally and using the option that automatically uploads individual files to production on file save. It’s worked for the most part but there a few things I want to change/improve:

- Using a slicker editor like sublimetext
- Using local virtual box w/ apache, php, etc
- Managing changes/versions between local and production
- Documenting changes to a site if only minor ones have been made periodically

I’m assuming I need to start using something like github, but I’m having trouble understanding a few things:

- How to manage syncing my xamp server to externally accessible stage site and live production site
- How people get away with just using a lightweight editor like sublimetext for editing entire sites

In short, is there a newish end all be all guide to methodologies used for optimizing workflow, versions, and apps/tools required to do so? Thanks in advance for your help.

set a 301 permanent redirect of the subdomain to the portfolio.com/clients/mais-noodle-house folder and also add Disallow: maisnoodlehouse.portfolio.com You could also add Rel-canonical

Awesome idea with that 301 redirect! Thanks!

robots.txt, htaccess etc. http://www.robotstxt.org/meta.html

I know about robots.txt and .htacess. I don’t want to put noindex on maisnoodlehouse.com though. What would I need to do just to not index the subdomain?

If I put this in portfolio.com root directory I’ll definitely shoot myself in the foot because that’s my maisnoodlehouse.com directory right? Disallow: /clients/mais-noodle-house

How do I target just the subdomain? Disallow: maisnoodlehouse.portfolio.com?

Hey everyone, just switched my sites to Bluehost and running into some problems. For the sake of clarity I’m going to be using some generic domains while I explain this.

My portfolio is at:
portfolio.com

My client folders are at:
portfolio.com/clients/

My specific client folder is at:
portfolio.com/clients/mais-noodle-house

A simple DNS and addon domain allows me to point
maisnoodlehouse.com
to
portfolio.com/clients/mais-noodle-house

The only problem is that Bluehost automatically created a subdomain called maisnoodlehouse.portfolio.com and Google is indexing/displaying it on search results. How do I disable this feature? Anyone have any ideas?

I see a lot of designers with this kind of sketchbook. https://dribbble.com/shots/821689-Map-pins-heart/attachments/84946 Is there a store with a wide selection of these sketchbooks? Thanks in advance for the input!
