SEO plugins don’t and can’t fix poor HTML structure. If the theme using multiple H1s, for example, there’s nothing a plugin can really do about that.

A lot of these Wordpress themes look nice, but fail to follow many of even the basics of SEO and HTML standards. For example, proper use of H tags, minification off css/javascript, clean HTML output, etc.

Does Evanto have any plans to curb this, or at least encourage better practice? Maybe some rating for standards compliance for each theme?

I was just looking, and I see that there are no Wordpress themes aimed as personal trainers. Ideally the theme would be attractive, but simple (not busy) as an individual would be less likely to have access to a variety of stock photography.

A way to very quickly browser through screenshots of templates would be very useful. As is, I have to scroll, mouse over every item to see what it looks like.

Or submit your site to online sites like http://pleasecritiqueme.com/

Very helpful, thank you, i will take that route. I’ve inspected all available “Site Templates”, there just nothing that I find close to what I am looking for.

The website in question is http://sce.umkc.edu/ and I am looking for suggestions on how to improve the look of it. I haven’t been able to find a theme in the Marketplace that I find to be a suitable replacement, so I am trying to simply improve the existing look.

So many of the themes are just portfolio themes. I’m looking for a theme to replace http://wylliams-henry.org

I’m looking for something with: - a lot of motion - all/most of the main content above “the fold”, ie. minimal scrolling on non text heavy pages at least - works well with both video and JPEG slideshows

I don’t particular need some exclusive design, just haven’t found much variety in the ‘Site Templates” section.

As a customer of ThemeForest, the whole point of buying a theme is to save time. Ripping a theme does not at all save time.

I’ve been looking off and on for a good theme for my schools ACM student org for the past few months, and all I see coming in for Wordpress themes are yet more portfolio themes. The categories in the Wordpress files are sparsely populated. Why is that?
