I’ve been configuring themes for clients now for 5 years. I only had to add one thing to my contract in those five years – that if they demand I use a theme from Themeforest, I am not in any way responsible if an update breaks the theme.
She’s using this theme: http://my.studiopress.com/themes/swank/#demo-full
Brad, I just added that code but don’t see any change.
I agree, and this goes right back to WordPress updates. So what happens to some random theme five years from now when it’s no longer supported by the developer? I’ve already run into these issues.
So it becomes easier to make the case for sticking solely with Genesis.
SCOE – I’m getting close. I have clients “demanding” that I use other themes which always ends up costing me a lot in additional time. I like clean code…..not having to sift through 80 files. I have one studio that I will never use again – no need to “name names” here.
But yes…getting very close to telling clients that I exclusively work with Genesis.
Maybe it’s just paranoia, but I always wait a bit to update unless it’s some kind of security issue. I’m not seeing a lot in this update that I “need” to have and from time to time bugs are reported with updates. So I’ll just sit back and wait a bit…
That said, this is one of the reasons I wish all of my clients would choose Genesis. I have far less fear clicking the update button.
Partially true. If it was a transaction from PayPal funds they might not receive a refund. However, if they used a credit card through PayPal’s payment portal they can win the chargeback via their credit card company and PayPal is forced to reverse the transaction.
Beyond that, file the complaint anyway. After “X” number of complaints PayPal will close their account.
It’s going to be tough to sue an oversees developer. Hopefully you used a service like PayPal where you can file a dispute.
This forum alone make the investment in Genesis well worth it. If there’s a required modification, someone has a code snippet ready to go. If you need style modifications, this forum’s free support is beyond anything else you’ll find. With many other themes, support is only offered by way of submitting a ticket and only for core theme issue. Styling help? Not offered.
Personally, I think StudioPress completely nails it on their choice of large body fonts. These fonts are user friendly – easy to read. Compare that with many other themes that use 13px fonts that are very difficult for users to read or the dreaded “text shadow” effect which is form over function.
That did the trick, thank you!
Worked perfectly! Thank you.
My fault for not closing this out. I figured it out.
