Im not a designer, just a person who likes beautiful websites (and a developer)... What screams at me as wrong (that I know for a fact) is the yellow links at the footer area (twitter widget and send your comments).. that just doesn’t match..

Im certain some designers will give more constructive criticism later, it is the weekend :)

Hello, I’d like some input (more from Joomla devs, but also from Wordpress devs) about using these frameworks to build their themes/templates..

Which do you prefer and Why?

Ive lightly tested both, I found Grantry initially easier… but Ive seen more Warp templates here (for joomla).

Thoughts???, thank you in advance for anything you share!

Regards, Sol

I never understand this. If you go to a car lot and say you want to buy a car, isn’t it reasonable for the car salesman to ask you what your budget is so they can help you find a car that you can afford? I don’t want to waste a day test driving BMW ’s just because I’m clueless to what they cost and the car salesman didn’t have the common sense to ask me if I could even afford one ;)

Yup, I know, Ive started asking about budget lately, and have been given roundabout answers.. thankfully I do outsourcing work for a small firm and they just say “just fix it!” lol..

I remember when I started building websites.. ahem.. many moons ago.. the books said, “ask for the budget up front”, this, still makes me laugh, because 1) It feels rude to me, and 2) Theyre going to say 50$! unless theyve already done some research and quoted the project beforehand.

It astounds me how people are still surprised at the cost of building a website. It might seem like it is easy, but it is hard work. We love doing it, so we dont mind.

I would consider this under the heading of customer relations..customer service… Perhaps you could use the opportunity to enlighten the customer as to the flexibility your services give and the results that could be expected (increase in his business $$, more sales leads, etc).

Just having a website loaded doesn’t help business… I’m ashamed to say sometimes, Ive simply not liked the look of a site and gone somewhere else to purchase my items.. (even while knowing that internet presence does not a company make.. remember those tv spots where the person is buying and the guy selling is in some hut in a deserted island)...

Hope this helps, its part of the whole “experience” :) Regards, Sunshine.
