I'm putting together a showcase and would love to see what you've all done.
While working with a few of you in the forums and stumbling across others, here are some of the nicer ones I've seen.
I chose the Element theme for a my chiropractors website.
Coming from Joomla, this theme was a dream to work with, making my transition to WordPress much more smooth. The admin console is very strait forward and intuitive. The challenge with WP (from a CMS standpoint) seems to be uniformity. The framework of the Element theme is designed in a way where you might "expect" to find the settings you're looking for - well done!
The main perk (for me anyway) was the flexibility. And while the simpletheme framework gives you options, it doesn't overwhelm you with hundreds of settings. Another thing I enjoyed about working with the Element theme was the content shortcodes. This was a huge time-saver! While I understand how shortcodes work, I'm no expert. The content shortcodes enabled me to setup pages very quickly.
And finally, the support I received from Casey exceeded my expectations. I'm extremely satisfied with my choice to do business with them and will certainly check often to see what they release next. If you're on the fence about their themes, don't be. I'm confident that you'll find it to be a refreshing experience.
Your site looks great and I'm more than happy to showcase it.
Here's one of my own sites I did using Orion: http://brianalaway.com
I've only begun using Simple Themes so looking forward to implementing more advanced designs.
Themes are great but what I like most about Simple Themes is the fast, responsive support and willingness to listen to and even implement suggestions.
Two thumbs up for Simple Themes.
I've been a fan of expression engine, but needed to create some quick sites in wordpress for clients. Simplethemes is a great resource for quality coded templates and intuitive for non-wordpress users.
I am in the process of using more simplethemes templates. The ease of use and customization, plus the reliable code makes these templates a joy to work with!
I'm a big fan of EE myself. Would love to see more of your work and hear any ideas you might have.
This is one of my favorite templates. Very fluid - easy and intuitive. And again, great code, easy to follow.
I used Contact form 7 for the registration area. Thanks for the tip on that.
*Update - This site has been redone using Mobius - another great job on the themes, Casey!
First one a chauffeur with a booking form including date picker - http://www.bon-voyage.uk.com/
The second one a Lake District Holiday Cottage site, still a little to do but it works and will have booking and reservation system built in. http://www.craghillcottage.co.uk/
There's also mine but not a lot to see really - http://www.wn6.co.uk
Anyway superb framework (as I see it) nice to use, got it's quirks but would highly recommend it.
The client wanted to make sure it was easily accessed from any device so I chose template because of its responsive feature (rather than a separate wordpress mobile plugin)
Again - easy to follow the code for customization. Contact form 7 was used in the contact page.
Here are some sites I've put together using Simple Themes (feel free to share any of these you choose):
You are much appreciated!
