Hahahaha! Google Chrome’s ability to fix my mistakes truly amazes me!

Thank you for the feedback, it is in fact exactly what I wanted to hear! I’ve always called myself a web developer and done stuff like converting PSDs to WordPress themes, stuff that doesn’t require much design because it’s really not something I’m great at. I’m slowly getting better at it, but I need criticism like that to help me find out where I’m going wrong!

Which direction is the kerning out, do I need to stretch the letters further apart?

Agreed, having looked at those slides again since I made them at 11pm last night, they’re pretty awful. I really don’t like that brown… What do you think would look good?

The whole thing needs proofreading, thanks for pointing out those two errors.

Also, it’s worth noting that I’d accidentally set the header image wrongly before – it does have a bit more colour than it did when you were looking at it!

Hi all! I’ve just finished building and installing a new WordPress theme on my own website. It used to just use a modified Twenty Eleven, but that doesn’t exactly scream “I’m a good web designer”, so I’ve finally got round to creating my own theme. It took me a couple of days, and you can see the result here.

So, what can be approved?

Thanks in advance! Toby

I’ve noticed ThemeFusion has been naming themes after Harry Potter spells – ie. Avada [kedavra], Crucio, Imperio – I thought that was quite an interesting idea :P

I just name my themes after pretty random words, latin words in particular. Words like “traction” seem to make quite good theme names as well for some reason!

It’s hard to say without looking at the theme, but you might be able to do it with just CSS .

It should be pretty easy to switch the logo from left to right on pretty much any theme.

Are you sure this is the best solution though? Logo’s are purposefully placed on the left as people generally read from left to right, so your logo is the first thing people see.

Hi all, I wasn’t sure if this should go in Item Discussion, as it’s not really an item – I only intend to use this on my personal website, but I’d like to ask your opinion on it so I thought I’d stick the thread in here.

Here’s a screenshot:

Do you have any ideas, suggestions, criticisms or just feedback in general? Thanks!

Well with windows 8 pro, it will have the actual windows 8 not the rt version plus with the type pad thing it does become a proper laptop

The thing is, from what I can tell from the pictures, it needs a stand to hold itself up (when using the type pad thing) – meaning you can’t sit with it on your lap.

I think I probably will go with the i5, I’ll have a look at some Toshiba laptops in a bit as well seeing as you all seem to think so highly of them!

I program mainly for the web: HTML , PHP, JS etc. but I do a lot of C# as well, which has quite a heavy IDE . The main thing I want it to do is run the Adobe products smoothly, but even my old Acer managed that.

That’s usually true, but then you could argue that £500 isn’t cheap ;)

I have an acer at the moment, and I’m pretty sure I’ve had it for at least 3 years now! It still runs quite well, but the battery life is awful and I like the idea of a shiny new laptop :whistle:
