As a windows user, what alternatives do i have? Iv seen a few suggestions but they appear to be mac only

I would love an answer to this. Sketch.app looks great for the Mac OS X, but sadly I am a Windows guy. So any suggestions?

2) Call it on document ready, window load and inside of the slider callback for when the slider loads. Not sure which plugin you use for the slider so check the callbacks in the documentation.

^ That would work a treat, and no need for extra stuff!

You will need to call the script either on window.load() or use something like imagesloaded: https://github.com/desandro/imagesloaded to call the script once the images for the slider have been loaded.

Hi Joe,

I think you will need to wait for the author to reply with a response to your ‘tweaks’. Please bear in mind authors are global, and could take at least 24 hours to reply.

Best of luck!

Hey,

To me the sidebar doesn’t have enough width to showcase comments. For example, the sidebar to the right can only hold around 28-32 characters per line. That makes long blocks of text very hard to read. Ideally you want a CPL of 45-75 (http://www.webtypography.net/Rhythm_and_Proportion/Horizontal_Motion/2.1.2/)

I think comments at the bottom of content has evolved to be acceptable over time. If you read an article, you scroll to the bottom for comments. If your on facebook, you look at the bottom of the photo / status for comments. If your on Twitter you look at the bottom of tweet for comments etc.

I have used Be Broadband for the last 8 years, and 3 different addresses. In that time I think I have had 2 issues, both resolved within 24 hours. Support is amazing, and you can even speak to them via twitter!

I have had an itch to rewrite one of my old themes for a few months.

The idea was to release the ‘rewrite’ as a new theme, but only if I could offer current customers of the ‘original’ a free copy of the ‘rewrite’.

I contacted support, but never heard back.
