Wow, thanks for that NoiseWorld, what a great concise explanation!

Still not sure i completely get it – seems like a massive headache for peanut earnings in my case.

Thanks again for the tips – I will definitely use this information in the next chat with my accountant.

Also, i can’t believe it’s been two years since i have posted this – time is flyyyyyying!

Cheers!

Looking for an ongoing collaboration on a project i have no longer time to develop on my own. Sydney location would be ideal, but anywhere with a similar timezone could be considered remotely.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with a very large audience website redesign, with key focus on ultra fast page loading. Content heavy, image-less website. Challenging re-design, not your typical ThemeForest template!

Project is built on the bourbon neat framework – http://neat.bourbon.io and running on a Jade – Gulp – Sass build that can be found here: https://github.com/CosminAnca/static-gulp-jade

Therefore, I am looking for someone who knows how to work with Jade, Sass, Gulp, GIT etc.. Depending on the client’s wish, you would work directly with them or with me acting as a middle man.

If you know your way around the preprocessing languages of Jade and Sass and are familiar with GIT and gulp, please reach out to me via private message.

This is a high profile client with serious expectations of quality, accessibility, optimisation and there is a lot of work to be done moving forward. Rates are pretty high. Please only apply if you’re serious about a professional collaboration going forward.

Absolutely nothing wrong with building your theme on Underscores. Probably the best starter-theme out there. :)
+1 for underscores, but _s is good one

_s is underscores

have they fixed the issue of finding old posts yet, it doesn’t work when i hover over my pic

It only works when you are in the forum – not if you over over your icon on your profile page or elsewhere..

Good luck with your researches..

Thanks! Sounds like you’ve been there before and it didn’t run all that smoothly?

Hopefully i don’t get too many cases of “my hard drive died” like i read in a few threads :)

Hi all!

Few months ago, i was posting here begging for work, as i was at an all-time low with no work coming my way. Here i am now facing an overload of demand and i can’t handle everything by myself.

Rollercoaster. Perks of freelancing!

Anyway – I am trying to focus on my bigger clients and offload smaller projects to someone who would be capable to do a clean work off a ThemeForest theme chosen by the client. What i am looking for mostly is somebody able to integrate the client’s content (text + photos + special needs) with an eye for design. In other words, the final product should still look as pretty as the ThemeForest demo :)

Ideally, i am looking for someone in the Asia / Oceania timezones, since i am based in Sydney, to facilitate communication. But that said, i would still consider somebody from anywhere, if the attitude and communication is right!

I am looking for someone who can understand a brief quickly, take initiatives and responsibilities with confidence and deliver a solid product.

I don’t expect you to create custom plugins or have A-grade PHP skills, but i need you to have a good understanding of design and visual balance, as well as to know how to properly customise a WP theme (child theme etc.).

I have no guarantee on the amount of work i would be providing (i am a freelancer, once again), but i can guarantee that if you do a good job, i will be coming right back at you with the next one! :)

If you think you’re up for it, shoot me a line via my contact form!

Also for WP or Html, can I make only one site with the template or can I create multiple sub-sites with it?

With both HTML or WP template, you can only do one website with one licence. If you want to make another website, you need to purchase another licence.

Quick Summary of Advantages for both WP and HTML

WordPress

  • no coding skills needed to create a post, upload images, manage your content.
  • Abundance of plugins available to extend / add functionality
  • Enormous online community, which means that when you have a problem, the answer to it is available somewhere on the web 99% of the time.

HTML

  • No database, no software updates.
  • Virtually no maintenance / upkeep once it’s set up
  • Faster page loading (no requests to the database to output page, the content is ready to display
  • No server needed – site can be hosted pretty much anywhere for very cheap or even free (dropbox, Amazon S3, github-pages…)
  • backups, migration and version control are much easier to handle

Good luck!
