Probably the wrong side of the fence as I’m a buyer, but we’ve recently purchased both a Magento and Wordpress theme that we’re using for our online store that is due to launch with a ‘soft’ live at the end of this month.
We’re going to be selling quirky home accessories and hand-made gifts, mainly targeted within the UK.
I’ve been working with the themes, and I have nothing but praise for the 2 authors, OrmanClark and Queldorei for putting together some easily customizable themes and providing excellent support when needed.
If you’re interested I’d be happy to let you know our progress and how we are doing?
Wow, I’m not even sure where to start.
You really need to look at the quality of most of the current themes on the ThemeForest site, and then look at your theme.
Agreed, I would love to purchase a vintage style ecommerce site like: Anthropologie
20,000 pounds +
I really like your theme, its really nice ,and ifs weird that you got rejected for not being original when half the templates here follow a similar design and layout (responsive, banner image, four columns, footer).
Hi all, I am hoping that someone may be able to help me or point me in the right direction?
I have been asked by my company to create a simple single page intranet page, the page will have a header area for a company logo/images, a footer area and a body that will only contain buttons that take the user to various different internal websites. I,d like it to look as nice as possible and I was hoping that someone may be able to point me to any helpful resources or offer advice to assist me in getting started.
Many thanks in advance for any help!
Hi all, I hope that it’s ok to post here to get some advice?
I’ve been asked by my boss to create a single page (HTML) that will consist basically of buttons that can take employees to various internal company applications. I’ve created a simple wireframe here:http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/196/buttonsje.png/
My question is whether it would be better to use tables to hold the buttons (there will be many) or CSS ?
Sorry if it appears to be a silly question.
Thanks for the reply Jami, I wasn’t trying to be negative. I was just a little concerned about the quality of some of the latest E-Commerce themes.
There are some great ones too
Firstly I just want to start by saying that the vast majority of designs here (especially Wordpress) are of great quality and clearly have had a lot of love and hard work put into them by very talented designers.
However I have to say that this does not always appear to be the case in the E Commerce category.
I cannot understand how some of these themes (I am not going to point out any themes or name any authors) have got through your review process. There are themes in this section that cost up to $80.00 that look worse than the actual default themes provides by their respective platforms (Magento, OpenCart, etc.) I cannot understand the pricing policy when an amazing Wordpress theme with tons of extra options and functionality sells at around $40.00, and an Ecommerce theme that looks like no effort has gone into it and of very poor quality sells at $80.00.
It’s not the price I am complaining about though, as some of the Wordpress themes here I would happily pay much more as I know how much bespoke sites cost, it’s just the very poor quality of themes that I’m starting to see creep into the Ecommerce section.
On a postive note, there are also some amazing E Commerce designers here like 8theme,nixdanish,Koev and ThemeBurn (to name a few), but some of the other themes are of such poor quality I am surprised they are featured in this marketplace as they look like the generic free themes that you can find on the internet.
I was wondering if any other buyers or sellers had any thoughts on this? Maybe a tightening of the review process for this category might be in order?
As a buyer, I have to say I really like your design and thank god somebody has some different ideas that don’t involve having a huge image with 3 columns and a footer below it like half the designs here.
I agree with Monkify that currently is does look a little too minimal, but what you have is a great starting point and once you flesh it out, it’ll make a great theme. Please, please don’t go crazy adding millions and millions of features as your design will end up looking like all the other themes here. Totally agree with you about the Themeforest ethos as it seems to be at the moment, with themes having 1,000 options, very precise robotic layouts etc. I think that’s not the be all and end all of design.
Love what you’ve done so far and good luck!
