Hi,

I’ve always worked with fixed width pages as a personal preference, but recently the trend is to large fluid landing page-style designs, especially for homepages. So I’m thinking of jumping on the bandwagon and creating a really nice wide intro homepage (and retaining fixed with for the rest of the site).

The page will be responsive – however, what sort of max width should I be designing the content for? 1024px? larger? I’m honestly not sure what the best max is :)

Cheers!

Dan

Without the designer, your skills are completely redundant. You have nothing to code.

Therefore, the design element is worth significantly more than 5-10%. Gifted designers are a lot less common than great developers, that’s why they earn a bigger percentage vs the time spent developing/supporting.

He’s asked a perfectly legitimate question here – most of the top authors are male. It would be interesting to understand why.

Instead of trying to understand it, a load of people are just whining about his username. Some of you take yourselves far too seriously, lighten up.

If you need some inspiration what means “Quality” at the moment at TF you can have a look at those items: http://themeforest.net/user/woothemes/portfolio :D

Haha, well played sir.

Theme ‘quality standards’ can’t be talked about until all those themes are removed (I’m assuming they haven’t been).

Hi,

I’ve got the superb Goodlayers wordpress theme Blue Diamond, however when used hand in hand with the ‘Q and A FAQ and Knowledge Base for WordPress’ plugin, the blog area on the homepage screws up. This is obviously a conflict between the 2 (disabling the plugin results in a fixed homepage), however, unfortunately I need the plugin – so I’m wondering if any clever person can figure out how to resolve the conflict?

The site’s here: http://109.228.26.4/

Any help would be much appreciated.

Dan

I’ve tried rubbing my eyes a couple times, the font’s still blurred.

Change the font.

Is there an easy way to locate the items that are licenced 100% GPL?

The only way I can see at the moment, is literally clicking through to every single item and looking at the licence options – not too easy.

Can we filter on them somewhere?

1. Those theme’s are NO WHERE NEAR good enough for themeforest, and would have been rejected by any other author.

I don’t think so.

2. They are massively overpriced.
Are you kidding ? Just don’t buy them !

Nope. And no, I won’t.
