just open wordpress dashboard and search for themes
i want professional designs because the one in wordpress dashboard are too simple .

Free & Professional don’t usually go hand in hand, you’ll probably need to either open your wallet, or lower your expectations of a free theme.

That being said, here’s some free ones; http://wpsmashingthemes.com/free-wordpress-themes/5-free-portfolio-wordpress-themes/

Thanks Tommus for the tip, that method sounds easy and actually very useful to have several homepages,. not sure how the skinning would work with that though.

Custom skinning – post (page) metadata, in situations like this it’s best to keep things as close to WP standards as possible, I know, I tried reinventing the wheel on an early theme, subsequently it’s now gone because I wasn’t happy with the result, so from experience, get_pages, definitely :)

You can do this pretty easily with;

By setting pages as child pages of your master pages, you can even have your child pages re-direct upwards if your users don’t want them accessible.

That being said, your solution looks pretty elegant :)

Hey guys,

Quick one, and I’m probably just being blind, wasn’t there a button before so we could download our own themes? I need to quickly grab a download of one of my themes, as I think the reviewers may not have updated the theme files and don’t want to waste anyones time incase they have.

Cheers!

I was contacted recently by a very disgruntled individual, who, after paying a ‘developer / designer’ for a custom site, discovered they had actually just bought one of my themes and tried to pass it off as custom work!


If you are transparent and honest with your clients about your business practices then this isn’t a problem as your clients should already know you are creating their sites using templates.

Exactly this.

Congrats Tom! It is well deserved.

Thanks a bunch Mike! There’s a couple of authors I owe this pack to actually;

1. Mike (ProgressionStudios) – about 8 months ago, after releasing my first 2 WordPress themes, I was actually running support for Mike & it helped me make way way to working for myself, but also gave me a great insight as to how much support & the quality of support I’d need to get used to if I’d ever make it to Mikes level. I’m still chasing after him but I couldn’t be more thankful for the time I spent covering those support forums.

2. Hasan (CodeBlvck) – Hasan is the designer & HTML developer of Montreal, one of my better selling themes – it was Montreal that actually convinced me that I could make a living on here, so thanks mate :)

3. Tobias (PPandP) – I have loads of themes with Tobias, as well as other custom jobs we’ve worked together on not on ThemeForest, if it wasn’t for the partnership I forged with Tobias, I don’t think I’d have made it this far, nor would I likely be doing this full time, so a big cheers to you mate :) Tobias is also the Designer & HTML developer of MyFolio – my top selling theme – so double cheers!

Thanks again all :)

Video of you and Lauren eating the Vegemite or it didn’t happen! :D

I’m about 1/4 of the way through already… Had Vegemite on toast for breakfast, and vegemite & mature cheddar on toast for lunch, what have you done to me?!

I’ll definitely get a video together, no chance for Lauren though, couldn’t even tempt her for a little bit of Vegemite on toast earlier!


Congrats! I love the Moleskine.

Yeah the Moleskine is super-sweet, although you can emboss anything and I’d love it!
