New front page theme

Recommended Posts

I'm going to redo the front pages and upgrade the software version we use. We use Wordpress (WP) and therefore the look be based on a new theme already available for WP. I'll then rehash it and modify the colours and look to suit us.

 

Here are some options:

 

Quandrum: http://themeforest.net/item/quadrum-multipurpose-newsmagazine-theme/full_screen_preview/7205094

 

preview-wordpress2.__large_preview.png

 

(the same people make all of these http://www.orange-themes.com/ )

 

Jarida: http://themes.tielabs.com/?theme=jarida

 

01_preview1.__large_preview.png

 

These are two of the top listed from here: http://themeforest.net/category/wordpress/blog-magazine/news-editorial

 

Anyone got any thoughts on the look to help me along?

 

I am happy to consider alternatives. But...they need to be

  • WP compatible
  • recently updated and supported (a lot of people encode their products so I won't be able to fix it myself)
  • have tablet/laptop/phone skins
  • accept a white background for news articles
  • I'll also be using our previous news and content, so it has to cater for all of that as well.

I think the key is to maintain the simplicity of the current setup and keep the bright, uncluttered characteristics that make it good at the moment.

 

Too many little thumbs/text previews is good in that you fit more entries in without having to scroll through yes, but you really don't want to overload it.  Keeping plenty of white/light grey as per the actual forum would be preferable to my mind.

As you all know Facebook is weeding out all the Airsoft sales and at present there isn't anywhere to post HPA stuff. I am in most of the HPA groups on Facebook so could post a link to this forum if there was a section to sell Polarstar ETC.

 

Oh and does it really matter if this is an old post or would you rather me create a new one?

 

Many thanks

Xray
