    Hello,

    Great insight, as always, on the new themes! Just one question, are these paid themes? If yes, where can I check the prices? Thanks!

    Cheers!

    Thanks and regards,

    Hi, just a quick feedback (you don’t have to publish this comment if you don’t wish to). Hopefully you guys do realize that your Themes section in the Dashboard, is extremely slow, in fact, almost unusable, for those of us, who may be on the slower connections? The slower connections in today’s age means, DSL. The page load never finishes and it is frustrating to preview any themes.

    • Tammie Lister

      Hi ismailimail, thank you for the feedback. We are always looking at ways to make the experience better for all no matter what device or speed they are viewing on.

    • Tammie Lister

      ismailimail, we’d love to get a bit more information about this to see if we could diagnose the problem. Would you mind giving us a bit more information such as your operating system, browser and confirm your actual connection speed. Thanks for speaking up about this. As I said earlier, it’s really appreciated.

    Another feedback I have for the theme selection decision-making, is this: Almost all of your themes have featured-images show up in duplicates. There are a very few themes which has featured-images separate from inserted-images (Expound is one). I find it really strange that you’d release so many themes with such a big image inconsistencies. And, I have yet to find a filter which would filter the themes based on this criteria. I’d like to be able to see which other themes do not have duplicate featured-images.

    • Tammie Lister

      Thanks again ismailimail for the great feedback regarding featured images. There isn’t a filter, but filters are something always being looked at.

      Each theme does treat things differently in a lot of cases, this can be down to the design or function it’s designed to work for. However, that said it’s great to hear from users what they want and are looking for. That way we can ensure we create more of those type of themes.

    Hi

    I think the magazine theme would be good for me at streetzblog. But since I’m on wordpress.com or .org. Is there something I need to do extra to get this theme. Also should I back up my site somewhere. I know I attempted to do a new them 2 years ago and got cold feet. Can u help?

    Thanks Scott at streetzblog.wordpress.com

      Hi Scott. Your site streetzblog.wordpress.com is on WordPress.com, are you looking to use MH Magazine on that site or on a .org one? It is available on both and just trying to point you in the right place.

    I am a novice. I was checking out these new items. Found them interesting. However each refered to editing CSS. What is meant by CSS?

    Great :D

    I like most of the themes that have been added in recent months, but I fear that the majority of site visitors my age and older (I was born in the sixties) will not realize that, like in Hex – which is, without any doubt, a cool theme -, there are hidden navigation bars and widget areas that can be made visible by clicking on icons (that are, by the way, beautiful but not self-explaining). Although this is a very clever feature in responsive design, it should be left up to us whether we have those non-content areas hidden or visible by default. Anyway, the new themes are great!

    • Tammie Lister

      Hi Michael, thanks for the feedback – it’s great to hear from users if a feature could be improved. We have a range of navigation treatments in themes, some use the visible all the time and others use the show and hide. There are of course always things we can do to make the navigation more intuitive, so thank you for your feedback regarding that.

  13. Michael Meiser

    I meant “Hexa”, not “hex”, sorry!

  14. Ryan Poliran

    WOW ! Really cool.

  15. azhariscm

    Great,,,

  16. Eszter

    Great new themes, I’m considering to purchase MH Magazine. You know what I’m missing though? Why don’t more themes have a grid-like portfolio page? I guess most people would love a form to list their achievments/projects/contributors.

  17. Nikodemus

    Just activated Hexa on one of my blogs. Great theme, thank you!

  18. AMYunus

    Hexa is awesome. But hover-to-display-menu feature is a bit annoying on device without mouse. Great themes!

    • Tammie Lister

      Thanks for the report AMYunus. There is a known issue which we are working on regarding hover menus. This sounds like it could be this from what you explain. I have passed on that Hexa also has this issue. Again, thanks for letting us know.

  19. Jazy

    I really REALLY like the Singl theme and want to use it. However, I can’t because the hidden menu just doesn’t sit well with me. I’ve checked out all the free themes numerous times and I’m sad I fell in love with this one because I can’t make it work without a sidebar. Any plans for free themes like it in the future? (With a sidebar?)

    • Ian Stewart

      Yep. We’ll likely have similar themes with and without sidebars being released here. (Though nothing exactly like it with a sidebar is planned at the moment.) Keep an eye on the theme announcements!
