Questions re themes and blog feature



User: Terri W. 2 years ago
I am looking to replace a number of iWeb sites with EverWeb and if it goes well hopefully transition family and friends that bug me to maintain their sites.

There seems to be a dearth of fresh and contemporary themes and also examples of sites using the product. I was nearly convinced to master word press for the simple reason that there are so many themes to choose from.

Themes are a huge productivity tool, especially for someone who would rather concentrate on content and business than building a site from scratch, however easy that might be. There is the obvious element of time, but there is also the design element and many people would rather tailor something than build a custom site. I personally would be happy to pay for theme packs, especially since I have multiple sites and do not want them to all look alike, so variety is important. But cannot find but a handful third parties who offer this. It might be useful to have a sticky listing designers who do offer these products.

IMHO I wonder if you underestimate the value of templates and the degree to which it would drive sales? Given that your product is designed with ease of use in mind, good themes seem to go hand in hand.

Finally, are there any new themes incorporating the blog feature and any examples of sites that have incorporated it? Is it similar in layout to iWeb or more customizable? (I am hoping to lay out the blog entries in a grid format so that a person can simply scan the lead-ins and make a selection of what appeals versus scrolling through a list. But that may be asking a lot...)

As an aside, I can tell you work very hard to develop and most of all, support your product. This forum and the responses are evidence of that.

Hi Terri

I'm an independent EverWeb 3rd party developer currently working on generating some theme templates for EverWeb. The templates I am working on include different options e.g. With or without blog support. I'm hoping the designs will be fresh and contemporary. I've just started getting some templates live at www.everythingeverweb.com. More will follow over the next few weeks. Hope that helps!

More experienced users will soon be able to create a fully responsive blog using these Blog widgets.

One of the options is to create the list of entries as a responsive grid.

NOTE: This is a blogging system based on widgets and is completely different from the EverWeb Blog. It is design to allow users to have either a fully responsive blog or to create a responsive mobile version of their EverWeb blog.

It can be extended to add audio and video using the Podcast widgets.

The Blog Photo Entry should be of interest to those who want to provide more than one image to illustrate their entries.
