Support » Theme: Skrollr » A great one page theme

  • UPD: The author does listen to feedback and has fixed all the things we’ve been able to find. Including the navigation. Unfortunately, he didn’t update the theme in repository yet, but the updated version can be found in the support thread. It does behave as advertised, and I can honestly recommend it. Four stars only because it hasn’t been updated to the latest version in the WP repository. Will give honest five stars when it happens.

    The theme doesn’t behave as seen on the developer’s demo. No slow slide up upon first click on the downwards arrow. No left side navigation (and this one is a real shame, I liked the idea very much). A form for leaving a comment under each post right on the front page (although this ugly thing he was kind of bullied into, judging by the tracker discussion). No documentation whatsoever.

    On the other hand, the theme is rather easy to tweak if you wish to dig into php files. Everything is neat, no mess or wtf moments, so you won’t be lost. Even the traditional forced change of fonts to something that looks nice while supporting Cyrillic was the easiest I’ve done in a while.

    All in all, this would make a fine one page promo site. Get rid of comments (you need to close them so that the form doesn’t appear, or simply remove this piece of code altogether from the relevant php file) and you’re good to go.

    Thanks for your review and sorry that you were disappointed by this theme.
    The left-hand menu is only available for premium clients at this moment. I plan to integrate it in the future 2.0 version of the theme.

    If the slow slide up upon first click is not working, its a bug. Thanks for reporting it, I will fix it as soon as possible.

    What type of documentation would you need ? I have noted that there is a need to explain how to disable comments. What else did you want to achieve and were not able to ?

    Just to precise that comment integration is a requirement to be listed in the WordPress repository, so I can’t just remove this part.

    The documentation was required because the theme was not functioning as seen on the demo site. Naturally, the first thing that comes to mind is that I’m doing something wrong or missing something. I suppose that had I known from the start that the left side menu was not actually present on the current version, I wouldn’t have needed any documentation.
