  • SEO friendly/Well-Coded

  • layout options
  • Multiple portfolio layouts
  • Utilizes latest WordPress features
  • As for the color options, slider options, etc… theres no need for 1,000,000 options. As long as the theme is unique, well-coded, clean, SEO -friendly and has a few layout options I’m happy with it.

    Also, would be great to see some different themes on TF, I know business themes sell well, but would love to see Video Themes or Gallery Themes… something new :)

    I am a easy going fellow :) Regarding websites/themes I just demand two features:

    1 – SEO Optimized 2 – It won’t break

    In fact, many of the themes here do not care about these 2 simples and obligatory principles. I know this is a place where themes with 1000 tricks sell well, but personally, and for my clients, what’s important is to get higher in search engines and have a solid theme that does not break with one simple WP update.

    But it’s always good to see amazing designs, and fantastic admin panels. When all the rest comes together the final result is awesome, and some of the developers here do take care of everything.

    :) A solid theme that does not break with one simple WP update. Sometimes IT happens.

    Break when what? What do you mean by this one? :)

    A lot of things can break a theme. Some are preventable while others not. WordPress 3.1 broke a lot of themes. In many cases the latest version of jQuery released with 3.1 caused havoc upon different lightbox scripts and various other popular features. Other broken theme issues include IE9 not supporting Cufon until an the latest update. Anyways this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of broken theme issues. Some new items have issues right out of the box and you can read about them in the Item Discussions.

    Back to themolitor’s discussion now :-). I also am interested in hearing from more buyers.

    I don’t. :)

    I prefer a lightweight code/theme and proper headings. Proper H classes can (and will) make all the difference in a website.
