Themify Tutorial How To Eliminate Frustrations At the Workplace

Disagreements in the workplace are a dime a dozen, but how you come away from them makes all the difference. In this tutorial post, we’re going to step into a new space to explore what lies beyond the technical aspects of the designing and developing life.

New Demo Images Import Option

Themify Development New Demo Images Import Option

We’ve added a small but mighty option for you all. Now when you import a skin, also known as a demo site, there will be an option available to import all of the images as well. In the previous version, all demo images were replaced with a placeholder image due to concerns about image copyrights. However, one of our designers lovingly combed through each and every theme, ensuring each image would be available for our users.

Some website design trends come and go, but as we grow deeper into this scrolling culture, you may want to take advantage of the need for scrolling. Especially as mobile website usage increases, one thing is clear - we like scrolling on our phones. Even the split moment Instagram accidentally released a tapping to advance feed, the immediate uproar was enough for them to ditch the idea, at least for now.
