Support » Theme: Eksell » Perfect for My Needs as an Artist Right Now

  • I love this theme. It came out right as I was starting to be serious about building my artist’s portfolio. I’ve always used Anders Noren’s themes for all my sites. Even when I try to update for different needs I tend up to come right back. I’ve asked a forum support question about the issue I’m having, which is support for WordPress portfolios. But even then, my experience with the developer in the past has always been very positive. Several things in particular that I like about this theme- I’m a sucker for sidebar menus that are always present but I like how the menu itself was hidden and out of the way this time. When I was looking for a new theme this was important to me as I didn’t want anything to distract from my portfolio pieces. I also really like the Blank Canvas page template. It gives me a lot of direct flexibility in building specific landing pages and pages that can showcase particular projects. I’m not a good code person and my back-end web development capabilities are limited to teaching myself whatever I need to fix a certain problem. That being said, I like the option of coming up to the limits of the structure of a theme and being able to go past it without slowing my site down with unnecessary plugins or breaking it. I will add new reviews or edit this one if I find anything problematic in the course of its use.
