Can we mention individual themes here? Take Mediso, just been released by the talented chaps at Goodlayers – it has every feature that their standard multi-page themes do yet is 70% of the price. Surely a great single page theme should be near to or equal to the price of the multi page themes?

How large is the theme? What’s the maximum filesize upload limit on your hosting account?

You can create a test.php file with the following line:

<?php echo phpinfo(); ?>

and check the max filesize upload limit.

Alternatively, why not jsut unzip the theme folder and upload by FTP instead?

Drive to Atari-Ya in Golders Green. Spend disgusting amount on sushi and sashimi. Drive home. Eat.

Just had exactly that issue with an email template that quoted support for Outlook amongst other things. We find out after several test emails that Outlook doesn’t support background images and none of the web fonts work in that client either.

Caveat Emptor etc. but envato should be a little stricter on email client compatibility statements on template listings or at least they should have a disclaimer very clearly displayed.

Aside form the spacing and visual weighting issues, it’s probably got a lot to do with the fact that this is very heavily based on the visuals of the superb MiniGO coming soon plugin. At least change the font from Lato to something original.

True, but a personal CV is very different from marketing a business. By that logic we should also put where we went to school with our GCSE grades :)

On a CV you’re putting every little thing down that you think might give you the edge against another candidate – a company marketing itself is committing business suicide by mentioning their average proficiency in a skill.

You can use any one of a number of maintenance mode / coming soon plugins that will display ‘coming soon’ text to visitors but allow you as an admin to continue building the site behind the scenes.

So – get the database / wp install set up. Install and configure the plugin and then you’re free to install the theme and get working on it. Check the ‘not visible to search engines’ box until you are ready to disable the plugin and put the site live.

Common in theme previews, it seems to be self-defeating to display your technical skills at anything less that 100%.

“Hey client, my javascript skills are only 78% and my PHP is 90%!”

Nobody would use these in the real world…would they? Any sightings in the wild?
