Thanks ThemeProvince… message sent.

From the themes I have purchased here, I can see that most folks don’t use comment_form() and just put in their own code. This is fine but the theme checker plugin suggests that the correct way is to use comment_form()... just saying… does anyone know the correct way to do this? Maybe by redefining the function output somehow? Thanks…

If I am just tweaking a theme or even basic modifications, I go straight to the css. Otherwise, mock up. So in that regard, Photoshop or Illustrator is essential. I usually do a sitemap on paper for planning, build a mock up in Illustrator, write static html/css and then convert to wp. Likely that is the long way around but works best for me at this point. Occasionally I have skipped the static html/css and just styled/modified a wp theme like starkers or twentyten.

I am working on a theme design and I just can’t get the comment form how I want with a CSS only solution… well, without absolute positioning and that seems dangerous because fonts and such could change. Anyway, if I could just wrap a few of the elements with a div or something I would be good but I cannot find how to insert my own html with comment_form(). Any help is appreciated…

You wouldn’t want to interview me but I would certainly be interested in the blog… would be interesting to hear about design/development process, good tips, work setup (home office, design firm, etc). Good luck.

The only thing worse than people complaining is people complaining about people complaining. (of course now I am complaining about that…)

But seriously… it is normal for people to make comments/complaints about a shared endeavor. Why would you expect otherwise? To be honest, I think that there are some things that Envato could do some things better, but all in all, I think that they are doing a pretty good job. Even better, they seem interested in improving…

The Option Tree plugin will do pretty much the same and it is a bit more plug and play if you ask me… of course then you are dealing with a plugin. However, that can actually be a strength as it will be maintain separately, updatable and the data is more portable.

The best SEO is relevant content. If you know how to look at source code, then just look for meaningful markup… headings are h tags, main heading is h1, etc… After that, relevant content is what google and the like is trying to return to a search anyway, so have relevant content. Good luck.

I have never seen a theme or plugin to do this specifically.

I agree with the idea of creating a simple blog theme first and I like the idea of starting with html code. There are some tutorials out there for writing your first wp templete if you look.
