Some front page critique:

The body content of the page is nice – I like it. What immediately leaps out is the menu; it’s lost. You’re using a high contrast design red/white/black but the menu is grey on grey and it doesn’t stand out against the content below.

Likewise the advertising banner space – don’t use a dull grey placeholder – invent a company and make a banner – let the viewer see the banner in context. This goes for the sidebar too – add an advertising panel there instead just using the widget header ‘banner’.

The text at the bottom above the footer (‘Italian Magazine is the true etc.) looks very out of place with the large italicised text.

The slider at the top serves no purpose – this is a magazine site – why is there a plain rotating slider of photos with no context. Pull in featured posts with title and excerpt overlayed on the featured image with a link to the full post.

Hope that helps,

Jon.

+1 for being able to view past comments on items.

This keeps getting brought to Envato’s attention, alongside the slew of self advertising comments on every item but nothing ever gets done about it so don’t get your hopes up.

Hi,

I’ve tried customising a couple of sliders to achieve this without much joy – is there anything around that can do this:

Ideally looking for the overlapping panels but that’s not so important.

Many thanks :)

Really? What made you not think so?

The same demo photos? The same colour scheme? The same gold calligraphy Headers? The same transparent header with caps sans serif white text? The same footer colour scheme?

We can’t mention theme names can we? The theme on the front page that sounds like the country ‘Hungary’ is a blatently-tweaked copy (certainly visually) of the Rosa theme from PixelGrade.

Mods are you kidding me? I flag a few of the spammy comments to see what you do and you reinstate them all.

You’d rather have item comments sections full of fake good wishes because it looks better to potential buyers who don’t know any different?

Great strategy, really.

Hi Envato – It really would be great to hit the comments tab on an item and see some genuine feedback / experiences / see how the author is handing support. What we get is the same 10 or so authors copy/pasting ‘Looks Great GLWS’ on every single item to boost their own profile.

Love you lots but it’s just spam and noise getting in the way of important content.and you were going to clear this up ages ago.
