I'm at it again. I'm interested in hearing what sort of theme you'd like to see me work on. Post links to sites you like. Tell me what specifically you like about the site and design. Tell me other features you'd like to see in a theme. jQuery animations? What kind? ExtraContent? What style sites do you like? Examples?

Look forward to getting more of your feedback!

    I'm excited that you jumped into the EC arena and started adding it to some of your Themes.

    Keep it up, but don't over do it. I like to have a few assorted areas to include it.

    Thanks for asking!

    Hi Adam,

    I love that you are now including extra content. Keep it up because it has truly elevated the quality of your themes.

    Below are some sites I like and the reasons:

    http://www.freshlimesoda.co.in/index.html (the fact that the content is stiled over a very nice background without interruptions).

    http://www.elbowpark.com/ (I like everything about this theme - it just works)

    http://www.studio7designs.com/ (I Like the menu of the theme, the header, the background and the extra content at the bottom)

    Those are just some examples. Keep up the good work Adam.

    Loving the Lime Theme....

    I like the design of these sites below... perhaps you could take these sorts of design elements into consideration for your next theme design.

    I would love to see more "themed" themes: sci-fi, fantasy, horror, comic book, etc. I really like the ones that are currently out there, but it's always nice to have a bigger selection.

    Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen a comic book theme for RapidWeaver.

    Can you post some links to what you're referring to so we can all get an idea?

    I would like to see a theme with an easy to implement Header tool that can sequence headers. Make it easy to implement, place an image in a "box" and have some sliders to edit the image (size etc). Like the boxes plug in. MAKE IT CLICKABLE. Bannerzest pro is great but expensive for a non programmer.

    I want this feature to navigate to other related web sites in my domain (sub domain or sub folder).

    Also make a Nav bar that is separate from the header. Let it be placeable either horizontally under the header or vertically like a stack above the banner, below or below a stack under the header.

    Make the plug inter operable with other themes that are "enabled for this plug in." So the user can either use the themes header and nav or this plug in.

    I know it seems like we as theme developers can do all... but... uh... there is just not enough access to a dynamic UI in RapidWeaver to a) have dynamic-clickable-sequencing headers that are easy-modifyable-editable-and-adjustable.

    I know this first hand since I already made a theme with user selectable, sequencing headers with adjustable/scalable height. It took me weeks to sort out a user interaction scheme to just allow these variations. It's just not possible to make them uniquely/dynamically clickable on top of all that within the theme itself. Themes just don't have that sort of access to the RapidWeaver user interface.

    This is the sort of thing that is better suited to plugins, snippets and Stacks at this time.

    Ciao Guys!

    Now through stacs and Extracontent we can go out from a box of RW standard.
    Probably further improvements can come from new plugins, already happened in the past.

    Guys ( Adam, Adam ) we work on RW since 2004/05, right? ....do you remember our old themes on RW3.1 ? :) :)

    Hi Adam,
    I found another example of excellent website design. I like how the image intersects the page layout. It's an excellent arrangement for the homepage, but there should be an option for other pages - to hide the banner.

    I think it would be possible to create a similar theme for RW and I believe it would have been very successful.

    What do you think about it?

    Oh yeah. We've come a long way. Looking forward to continued growth and improvement in RW to add value to the app for the wonderful RW community too.

    Hi MartinL (and Cupertino and aluna) ...

    It's allready here: Supersized :-D
  • MartinLMartinL Prague, CZPosts: 396Members

    Hi Steffen,
    Supersized is something different. I mean a theme that has a classical navigation menu and overall layout. Banner is considerably larger than usual and seamlessly blends into the background.

    I see what you mean (now - I didn't get that at first).

    I know from his newsletter that Lucas is working on a new theme "HyperImage" that have a menu. He has been very responsive, maybe you can "push" him in the right direction (maybe I'll do it myself).

    Would love to see a theme with navigation locked to the bottom like this:

    Thanks for the great themes!
