    I’d like to see a “techno-skin” – one that features gadgets/equipment and their technical data using tabs (or fold-away sections). This could be for e-commerce use (i.e. a camera or hi-fi shop), or a parts catalog (for electric components maybe), or for anything requiring quite complex product data to be represented in a compact form.

    Quite a challenge, but I know you guys can make it happen…. and make it sexy!

    First: Great job with all the improvements and the new designs.
    What I am missing is a newsletter blog – financial adviser blog – travel blog etc. style
    with a more narrow slider or thumbnail slider on top with either small header or transparent,
    then slider style below and
    setup option below with column setting large for text/post and a narrow column for sidebar down for categories, latest news etc. and main area for posts in one main column scrolling down

    the images – header can be changed by us for news, travel, financial etc. – and therefore one design can then easily be used for a multitude of that kind of news blog style

    thanks

    Information is too spread out:
    Hi
    These are great and will be of good use to me,
    however they are all with lots of white space and large Post displays.

    I would really like you to think about a skin with more compact posts built into the design.

    Like bbc.co.uk , where a large number of posts are presented in a small amount of screen space, without any loss in readability or usability.
    My clients keep asking me for this and I have added it to your suggestions,
    but every new design you come up with spreads everything out so much.
    Nice eye candy but too little information on a single screen.

    A lot of UK news sites manage to pack in at least 4-6 posts in the space you set up for one.
    This is especially noticeable on smartphones.

    Thank you, Peter

    E-commerce. I don’t know what “trendy” looks like for 2016 but I just had some tech support work done on my website and the the guy commented that my site with its tweaked Shopdock theme was “so five years ago” looking. Granted, I customized the theme myself and I still love it…but still, ecommerce is what people are doing these days so it might be nice to see where the look is going next.

    Although it is not a theme skin idea …

    I think it would be great if there could be multiple side bars that could be displayed by choice, kind of like the way in the magazine theme I can select different top menu for different posts.
    Kadence themes allows to create/name multiple sidebar and then choose which one to display .
    different categories to display different side bars.
    Just a thought and a wish.

Also perhaps be able to size-resize playlist height/width. Thanks
