Where to start? I have worked with WordPress themes a lot. I find them great in some ways and extremely limiting in others. I then moved over to Adobe Muse which gave me the flexibility of design but the limitation of responsive design, posts etc, etc. Even though Muse is coming out with Responsive Design there is still a lot of limitation with the code.
I then tried designing in psd and giving my work over to a developer to program in WordPress. To start, it seemed to be working until I realised that he was just recoding my layouts in WordPress and I didn't have any ability to edit the pages and new pages, menus etc. The developer then added a drag and drop plugin which helped the situation, however, I am still not able to achieve the editing ability one would get from a ThemeForest theme.
So I am back to tweaking ThemeForest themes again.
So my question is how do you take the next step in WordPress design/ dev? Your blog is filled with amazing content on how to speed up your site, how to tweak this and that etc, etc. My questions are:
1) How do you present a ThemeForest Template as your own?
2) What is the best process for designing a site? Where does one start? In what programme?
3) How do you get a site to look like a ThemeForest template?
I know I am asking a lot, but I need to take my business to the next level and I need to know how?
