How to test the blog/posts layout/functionality - Import the Theme Unit Test [http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Unit_Test] file and make sure that:

  • All default content is formatted properly.
  • Posts display correctly, with no apparent visual problems or errors.
  • Posts display in correct order.
  • Page navigation displays and works correctly.
  • As “sticky posts” are a core feature, the theme should style and display them appropriately.
  • Lack of body text should not adversely impact the layout.
  • Theme must incorporate both the “Tag” and the “Category” taxonomies in some manner.
  • Floats are cleared properly for floated element (thumbnail image) at the end of the post content.

What they mention are already styled and completed, and I am not sure about what is wrong with the two screenshots above.
The demo url with the unit test data is http://www.outcrafter.com/papyrus/blog/

Pls help, any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi, anyone? any ideas?

envato.d.pr/TJZaxj/41opZDQq - very simple table, you must do something about it
envato.d.pr/tRA8Mv/2xmOGyfX - floats are not cleared, meaning the image above has overlapped the image below

one thing I’ve also noticed, is that your theme goes crazy on browser resize. also the dropdown menus are designwise weak. I also think that paddings in elements between slider and the our projects section can be twice as large

hopefully you’ll not wait much longer to get it released and that you appreciate the comments! :slight_smile:

Thank you! I didn’t notice that the images were overlapping, the borders are not so visible on my monitor :slight_smile:

The design of the tables for my last theme is the same and they approved it, anyway I will redesign it and ask for clarification in my comments to the author.

The theme has to be realoaded once resized, it has some auto aligning vertical elements that goes crazy on screensize change, but it works fine for a regular visitor.

Definitely, the menu needs more attentions, thanks for noting that.

Thanks a lot,
Charles

No worries! I understand that any design changes are hard, but can be quite nice at the end. As for resizing, keep in mind, that users do start browser in a window and then upon URL entry they maximize it. This is not uncommon, but resizing and breaking a website is. If you want a perfect product, you’ll surely address that too :slight_smile: Wish you the best with this template!

Finally got this approved - https://themeforest.net/item/pappaya-material-design-wordpress-theme/19534826

Thank you !

Woohoo! :smiley: Good luck! :wink:
