Can someone give a quick review about this theme?
hi guys, i just made a wordpress theme, and would love if somebody can give me some thoughts about it (both good & bad).
here is the demo url - http://wpbox.in/themes/simple-box/
i will give it for download in some hours. so please reply here fast :)
thanks in advance!
I loved the theme. Here are few observations: -
- I could not see how comments will look like.
- Not sure if archives is a gadget or a part of the theme itself. If its a part of the theme, I'd have loved it, if it were expandable type.
- Blockquote would look better if fonts are changed (just my opinion).
- The title of the blog needs more attention and it would look better if menu is in next line.
- What about adding search widget on the top (at the place of menu)? I think, it will be a better use of the place.
- If you can add a homepage (the way I have on my story blog), I may be the first one to download it.
- Clarification: Can the blog title be replaced with a logo or image? Many people may want so.
I forgot one thing. There is no author name below the post title. It is required by multi-autor blogs
thanks for your detailed review, really appreciated it.
1 - i just approved your comment http://wpbox.in/themes/simple-box/headers-post/#comments
2 - yes, it's a wordpress default widget, you can choose it like that or as expandable type.
3 - sure. i will give a look on that.
4 - i made it mainly for personal blogs. (actually, the whole theme is inspired from http://briangardner.com
5 - you have to add it manually
6 - not now, may be later.
7 - you have to add it manually
8 - i will add it.
again, thanks for your review.
let me know if you found any other bugs.
Search option on the top corner is not many people would be able to do manually. Most of them are non-tech people
okay, i will add the codes to add search box on top in the theme releasing page.
btw, added author link in single posts - http://wpbox.in/themes/simple-box/multiple-paragraph-post/
Its actually a superb theme for personal blogs. I have a personal blog on blogger which I am planning to move to WP. If I do so, I'll surely use this theme.
