  1. Thanks for the review Jeff! I appreciate all the great things you said about Traction. That being said, I am even more excited about improving on the shortcomings you mentioned :)

    Custom Logo

    Thanks for bringing this up. Using FTP is much more of a hassle than a built-in uploader and I plan on adding this functionality soon.

    Navigation

    I couldn’t agree more with you here, and I plan on taking full advantage of the new menu system in WordPress 3.0. It is great that this functionality can finally be moved into the WordPress core. Thanks WooThemes!

    Advertising

    I am so glad you brought this up. I don’t do any advertising across my sites so I have limited knowledge of what someone like you is looking for when it comes to advertising options. I know you have talked about it briefly before, but any further insight you have into “key” features of an advertising system would be great. What are the “must haves” you are looking for when it comes to an advertising system?

    Footer About Widget

    You make another excellent point here, if someone could just create a text widget then why is a dedicated “About” section necessary? I am going to replace it with a widget in the next release of Traction.


  2. @Drew Strojny – LOL Drew, seems like you are tailoring this theme to me but I think other people will enjoy the changes once they occur. I almost reminded people during the review that I am only one person and each review I do is my user experience of configuring and setting that theme up. So what I think may be shortcomings, others may be just fine with. But I can only review based on my experience.

    I’m happy to see theme developers such as yourself take my criticism in stride as I think of it as ways for you to improve your product. I don’t think I speak for the masses of end users but I am a just a regular guy and I think that helps out a lot when reviewing themes or plugins.

    As for the advertising section, I think you’ve inspired me to write a post on what I consider to be a good advertising system for WordPress.


  3. @Jeffro – You made brought up some great points. It is always meaningful to hear from a regular user like yourself, because it gives me a different perspective on certain features and options. This perspective helps me improve the theme, so it is a win-win.

    Looking forward to that post on your dream advertising system :)
