As you know, I'm no fan of templates, but I like this one best. I think it looks less "theme-y" because it is simple and minimal. I think that it reads as 'serious' more than the other themes you liked.
THANK YOU.... Finally get pretty much a REAL review after 3 pages. :)
Yes, it does look less "themey" the funky style like the other one, and does read more serious.
This was the issue I was having with the previous one. It didn't look updated and modern.
Part of me still misses the "archeological" feel to it.
Also with the changing image you can vary how the site looks from time to time. Are you going to have pictures of all the temples? You could also have a series that shows different historical events, or maybe a series of period photography.
The other one actually changed image every time with a new page load, it was a nice feature.
This one, the way it works is that you have to upload a particular image per post, and then it randomy grabs them and displays them in a on page rotator.
Ya, you didn't get a chance to see the other one I guess, but it rotated a nice different LDS image with each page load. This one, yes, I'll put up different images for the type of post it is. But, the other one I was able to "theme" select the types of images. I don't think I can do that with this one necessarily. Although, I think it might be able to slightly, if I have several posts of a particular subject/theme.
But I'm not sure what this one is going to be used for. Is it a personal blog about Mormon issues? Or will it be about your business ideas? Are you thinking of using this as the look for all your websites and just varying the imagery to signal if its business or personal?
LDSfaqs..... :) It's going to be primarily an article website similar to FAIR. I'll likely have a blog, and other stuff. We'll see how it goes.
Naw, my other websites will each have their own theme. I don't plan on changing any of the others except the FullBodyFIT one as I mentioned previously, and if I find a different Family one I like I might change that, but I likely won't waste time on that unless there is something really good, the one I'm using already looks familyish. The others the themes are perfect for what I'm doing, I just need to finish them up, start putting content, etc.
I know you disagree, but I do want to stress again that I think it is a mistake to mix the personal/professional websites in your links. I don't think you necessarily look like you're hiding anything if you don't include everything about yourself. And I also think its better to keep as few obvious links to anything about one's family off of sites that might draw controversy (like a website debating "anti-mormons").
I don't overtly disagree. I mentioned from the beginning once this was brought up that I would keep my options open on that. But, at the moment as I'm starting out, I keep the links. Links are good for getting the word out, so, I likely won't ever get rid of them. I will professional up the sites and overviews etc. so they won't turn people off as much. They won't actually be "debate" type sites, more information based etc. I will however like suggested take off my family site off the list once I have things set up. So, I do understand.
