With themeloper, I see the word ‘eloper’ before I see the word ‘theme’. Metro perhaps might have worked 18 months back but has the Windows 8 connotations now.
acidthemes is the most memorable.
The top is waaay too busy.
The thing that stands out as not fitting in at all is the menu bar with that strong border and the barber pole effect above it.
Perhaps have a look at the true purpose of this theme. If it is an ecommerce site then would a user really want a news scroller up top cluttering the header?
Not sure having a fixed width non-responsive 1232px-wide menu is clever, either.
That barbie-doll photo is giving me the creeps as well
I’ve started reading up on CDNs and how to use them. We’ve got a couple of sites that go down occasionally due to spikes in traffic and a further server upgrade is going to be very pricey.
CoralCDN seems the obvious one as it’s free but I understand there are others such as Amazon S3 / Cloudfront and even dropbox that aren’t so expensive if not used heavily.
The attraction of the S3 seems to be there’s a plugin that transparently uploads all files directly there rather than the WP uploads folder.
If anyone has any experience using CDNs and can offer advice on ease of use vs costs it would really be appreciated as there’s a lot of info to take in and process.
Typically they are a usability nightmare but I’ve had a couple of clients who have had huge announcements to make and have insisted on a splash for a couple of days to promote whatever event / product they want to force down people’s throats.
One client used one on an intranet site to ensure all employees were aware of new legislation and accompanying info as the employees were not all catching the attention grabber bar at the top or the big banner on the left of the front page.
That was actually what I was looking at. It’s around 1200$, a bit over in most shops. Are you satisfied with it? Do you think that the I5 is at least comparable?Cheers
I love it! It’s chewed up and spat out everything I’ve thrown at it. The only downside I’ve noticed is it’s a little sluggish copying large files to USB (pauses at the end of each file for around 20 secs).
I love Dell Laptops. Picked up:
2.20Ghz i7-2670QM / 16GB Ram / WD7500BPKT HD / kick arse sound / GeForce GT 540M 2GB for £850.
Dell Resellers on Ebay are great if you catch them at the right time, You can get up to 40% off the listed price on the Dell website.
Then just install this plugin?http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-analytics-dashboard/
Any issues like that where we have a contract in place with the client and they have problems paying due to location, we just purchase the service and invoice them directly. Might be worth it for the sake of £25 or so?

For the additional fields functionality you are looking for, you may need to get that custom coded.
