Daylight Savings Sale

If you’re like me, you really wish you had that extra hour you lost this week to DST. But what can you do? We’re all slave to time. What does that have to do with this sale? Nothing whatsoever. Just wanted an excuse to work in the word “savings” from Daylight Savings into a special of some sort, cause it’s been FOREVER since I’ve held one; My bad.

Anywaysss…I thought I’d put my newfound growing knowledge of WordPress options framework and web design to good use. One has exercised my nerdy, programming side and the other my creative, artsy fartsy side. But enough about me, let’s get down to business.

Here’s the run down:
$75 off of a Complete Blogsite package (orig. $500)
includes:
- 3 months of build + 1 month of support (standard)
- custom layout (must have logo pre-designed) including branding buttons, graphic elements to match your branding
- custom portfolio gallery page with javascript slideshow (iPad compatible)
- custom Options Panel: what do I mean by custom? Tell me what you want to tweak yourself and I’ll make it easy for you to do (within reason). Excludes custom font options (i.e. cufon fonts) and “structural” design changes to your blogsite.

Sale ends March 24th. Just fill out the Sign-up form and mention the “Daylight Savings Sale”.

* Already have a blogsite but want to spread the word? Get a friend to sign up and I’ll perform 5 customizations for you. Yay!

New Feature: Custom Theme Options

Last Updated on Wednesday, 17 August 2011 03:17 Written by Theresa Wednesday, 17 August 2011 03:14

Holy moly, has it really been over 3 months since I last posted? I’ve had a very busy summer (school’s back next week, yeah!), so it seems to have gone by REALLY fast. Aside from all the fun summer activities, I’ve also been working on MY NEXT NEW BIG THING. What’s that you ask? Custom theme options are where it’s at now. With the WordPress framework getting more and more robust, developers have been working on add-ons that make my job easier, but also make it easier for you as well. A lot of my clients hate (admit it, you’re one of them) to come to me when they just want to change the background color or pattern, or the font size/color. Believe me, I’m busy enough not to want to do that for everyone. So how about this: I can set up a custom Theme Options panel for you that allows you do that easily without messing up code or anything!

Here’s a screenshot of what I’m talking about:

So how can you get one for your theme you ask? Well for now, they’re not available just yet because I still need to work out some programming issues, but for anyone who signs up for a Blog/Blogsite package this month, I will be adding one to the theme I build for you so that I can practice and test it out. For now, these are the options that are definitely available:

Main Options:

  • Background color and pattern
  • Blog column background color

Header:

  • Logo pattern and size
  • Logo Text and size/color
  • Header and Logo background color

Menu:

  • Menu background color
  • Menu headings color
  • Menu home text
  • Menu home text link

etc….

There are also options for the Post and Footer sections, but you get the idea. I’ll most likely be practicing and testing for the next month and will probably offer Options panel add-ons by the end of September for a pretty minimal cost. The process of adding it should work for nearly all themes, although some themes are already built-in with options. The beauty of this system is that you can request what options you want, to a certain extent. Some blog builds can get pretty complicated so some changes can’t be included in the Options panel simply because the layouts would break (custom scripting is an example) or just look messy (i.e.custom borders and edges). But if you want some pretty straightforward, simple options that you can have control over any time you want, then you now have that luxury!

So remember, if you’re looking to sign up for a blog or blogsite package, this month would be the time to do it because they will come with a built-in Theme Options panel!
