But I am not trying to decide which to use…
I am trying to find a theme that already achieves the effect.
We don’t have the time or the skills to do the coding ourselves (at least not yet).
Looking for a theme that will allow a viewer to filter blog entries by category.
Hoping to find something that looks similar to the common filtering done by quicksand or isotope for portfolios.
It would be used to help provide focus for visitors. This site will cover a diverse set of products/services. Users coming for “Product A” might not have any interest in “Service B”. It is easy to filter the portfolio, but I cannot find anything that can filter the blogs entries in the same way.
Of course, clicking on a category list would accomplish the same thing, but it does not look as clean or engaging as the effects produced from filtering a portfolio using quicksand or isotope.
New to wordpress, and looking for a theme.
It is surprising to me as a new user that it is all but impossible to focus in on theme features.
For example, only want a theme that is responsive. No way to filter for ONLY those that are responsive.
We would like a theme that would display a variable number of portfolio thumbnails – with rollover text, that would link to detail pages that would have 2 or 3 tabs. Sounds common, but many of the LIVEDEMOs do not show such a layout.
We would like to display blog entries – with thumbnails – and allow them to be filtered in a quicksand style.
To find something like this is a daunting task… we basically need to click on themes one at a time an review them. After two days of looking… it is starting to seem impossible.
Maybe these features are available on most themes, but there is no description of capabilities or options within the themes – at least nothing that newbies can decipher.
And while there is a comment section on themeforest that can accommodate pre-sales questions, providing a laundry list of feature questions can also be a difficult task – again one at a time – and getting timely answers might also be problematic.
So is there some way to search through themeforest (or others?) that has search options? Checkboxes for “supports tabs”, “multi-line portfolio display”, “multi-line blog display”, “thumbnail blog listing”, etc… anything that will help to narrow / filter the options? Any way to filter themes based a features?
