My first theme for ThemeForest….but…I don’t think it’s good enough to worth bothering with (from what I can see its hard to get anything on this site and when you do you only get about 25% of the $12 you charge anyway)..Maybe it would be better as a freebie on another site – whaddya think:

It needs some work and could use some additional features in my opinion. Might be worth developing the other pages with more features and working on it a little more.

Starting Feb. 15th the rates will be changing. You can become an exclusive author right away which starts you at 40% commissions. You have the opportunity to earn up to 70% as well.

Currently there isn’t an option to have the forum email you when you get replies. :( Maybe one of these days though.

The footer is messed up on my computer. 13 Inch Macbook 10.5.4 running FireFox. Screen shot here: http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm196/DrewsDesigns/FirefoxScreenSnapz001-1.jpg

‘xmdsys’ – thanks for your reply. I was thinking of an accordion on the right kind of like they have at http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/icons_screensavers/

but I have to admit I don’t know how to do ‘Accordion’ and cant find a plain English guide.

I am far from finished and appreciate any comments on my template!

I have tried to steer away from the scrolling images at the top like 90% of the templates on here seem to have. I prefer minimalism and am working on a nice PSD .

Yup, same in Safari 3 and Opera 9. Prob. same in all the other browsers. Font line-height or container padding needs to be set. You should also be using un-ordered lists for those elements in the footer, not just a list of links wrapped in span tags. :)

Edit: Accordion tutorial: http://docs.jquery.com/UI/Accordion

Consider adding more colors to the design. The menu could use some popular jQuery effects. Simple and neat or should I say neat and simple. Oh and work more on Your content it’s a little empty now.

It looks good, but it is non normal simplicity. Maybe add some rounded backgrounds to ”#content h2”?

I agree about the colors. I do like the simple white/gray, white/black look, but a template has to be execute EXTREMELY well.

I’m a big fan of using a few muted colors (shades of gray/black) and then one stand-out color.

Also, the site feels really “flat”. Collis wrote some great tutorials for PSDTUTS not long ago – Web Design Week – that will really help you in this regard.
