Love the site guys. One thing that would make searching for new themes (because you are getting so many) is the ability to filter the WP themes using various features. For example:
1) Type (one page, responsive, etc.) 2) Slider type availability 3) Commerce enabled
I’m sure there are more, but providing some sort of filtering options would greatly reduce the amount of time I sift through themes that I don’t need.
I’m looking for some good WordPress options for a Convention & Visitors Bureau web site. They need Google map integration, event calendars, news blog (obviously, responsive design and as much flexibility as possible.
If you have any suggestions that might fit their needs, I’d greatly appreciate your feedback.
Logo placement, size, header options … you got it! Without breaking your wonderful designs
Organic, Yes, to your point I have some developer/designer skills, enough to make the suggested change. However, that’s not the problem that I’m eluding to. The problems revolves more around the look of the design rather than the simple action of “stuffing” in a logo.
The issue that I am referring to is more a function of the overall design. If you put in a logo and it expands the top header section and leaves a large ‘white area’ on the opposite side of the logo, I’d say that is not visually appealing. In the industry, I think you’d agree that use of the home page is critical to a successful web site. So you want to effectively use as much of the home page you can without looking cluttered or barren. So adding a logo that adds more unusable space seems counter-productive to me.
I’m suggesting that as you develop your new themes, keep in mind that many business logos out there are not 50px x 180px and simply providing slightly different designs (even based on the same theme) to support different logo sizes and styles (bold or thinner) might increase your sales.
Hey WP Theme Devs out there.
I have a request. In my dealings with my business clients, I’ve had many requests to convert their old boring sites into something flexible and more dynamic. Wordpress continues to fill this void quite well.
However, as I browse through so many different theme options, I run into a reoccurring problem. LOGO PLACEMENT /SIZE.
My request is to provide a better environment for the placement and size of logos. Many of the themes use a very bold and ‘short’ logo that is usually placed above the sliders. Many of my clients don’t use logos like this at all. Many are square and when you shrink them down to fit within that area, the logo becomes too small. Most business clients like their logo to be promoted heavily on the home page.
This is one designer who I believe took this theme and did just that: http://themeforest.net/item/rttheme-15-premium-wordpress-theme/781397?WT.ac=search_item&WT.seg_1=search_item&WT.z_author=stmcan
Anyways, I look forward to seeing more “logo friendly” themes.
Thanks for all your hard work! NJ
