Theme Tutorials + Theme Sneak Peeks

In an attempt to improve the user-friendliness of my themes I have set up a video tutorials section in the member’s area. Here I will be adding tutorials to help members set up/use my themes. I have started the section off with a collection of basic installation instructions, however, I hope to add more advanced tutorials in the future as well. This section will be updated frequently with the questions that pop up most frequently in the forums, however if you have any personal requests let me know.

Theme Sneak Peek – Bold

I have started working on a theme I call “Bold.” This theme will feature a strong textured appearance and a bold angular design. I like where this one is going, and while it may be a bit “niche” in its style, I hope some people will put it to good use.

Theme Sneak Peek – eNews

Probably the most common theme request I get is for a News/Magazine theme. For whatever reason one has never been realized, until now! My goal with this theme is to organize content in a simple and elegant manner. I just started work on this one so I don’t have much else to share, but I know people like to see what’s going on behind the scenes so here is a preview of what I have so far.

I also have some theme updates planned, if you have any requests let me know. On a side-note, I am working to improve support forum response time even more, and am looking to hire a new forum moderator. If you are an expert in css/xhtml/php/wordpress and want to do some tech support work on the side send me an email.

I hope everyone is doing well, best wishes!

  1. Wow, the new themes look fantastic! Can’t wait for them. Keep up the great work.

    • Bold theme is released and looks awesome.

  2. The enews theme is exactly what i’ve been looking for. Can you tell me when this theme will be ready? Also if I was to start building my news blog now with another of your themes would I be able to swap themes easily?
    Regards jacko

  3. Your style is unique!
    Compliments

  4. Awesome upcoming themes and great idea with the video tutorials. I’ll take a peak at them as you put them up. You’re doing great work!

  5. From the pictures i think this must be some of the best themes i’ve ever seen. Bold looks incredible! I cant wait to apply it to my site!

    Amazing work!!!

    • Do agree with you Andreas, these themes look amazing !!

  6. nice! Any plans to make it easyer to translate the themes? That has always been something that made it hard for me to update them. Whenever you make a change. Becaus most of the time the translations within the files I make disappear then..

    The news theme looks awesome. I hope it comes in neon green and black!

  7. Both themes cool but i prefer Bold more

    :-P

  8. Video tutorials will be very helpful to the elegantthemes members. I think eNews will be a great theme, just can’t wait to see it release.

  9. i would go with the statement of ahmed i agree with him.

  10. Hi,

    I love your themes, they’re simply the best out there.

    But would you consider making them localizable, by using .po-files? It’s so much work translating everytime there is an upgrade to a theme, and I don’t have the skills enough to do it myself :)

  11. Any status update on your Glow theme would be awesome. :)

  12. Wow, I am keep thinking and dreaming about Elegant Themes, it changed my life for real since I joined and started using it as I am running EleganThemes on 3 4 of my blogs till now, I appreciate your work a lot!

    I love the idea of Video tutorials, it will be a great thing to watch and learn from while having my coffee :)

    I don’t know.. but I just can not ask you for something to add or to update, I like more to wait and be surprised by your new stuff.

    Thanks a lot!

  13. I like the new enews theme, when will it be available?

  14. omg nick, thank you so much for the tutorial videos, now i don’t have to bug you all the time on the forums :D

    and can’t wait for the new themes, enews looks very promising and bold is something new that i hadn’t seen for a while!

    keep up the good work:)

  15. News blog look wonderfull and cant wait to see it, well done now

  16. Wow! The ‘Bold’ Theme looks amazing. So does the eNews. I honestly cannot wait for these themes. Nice one, Nick!

  17. An evid-style theme for music would fill a gap currently out there. I have a music review site, and it would be nice to have a format similar to eVid that would show album art and play linked clips.

  18. “BOLD” just looks awesome !!!
    Keep the good work on !! :)

  19. Good work Nick, new themes look great and vid tuts is a great idea

  20. haha, love this guy…

    Keep up the awesome work mate!

  21. Both themes look outstanding but eNews is definitely hot! Great work Nick!

  22. Love the new Themes..

    How about doing a “Magazine theme”.. something that looks cool, and showcases all posts in a category..

    There are a few joomla themes about, but not any really looking good WP theme..

    Show us ur magic..

  23. Hi as a paid member for your theme, your news theme look hot and clean and very well arrange.

    but i also would love to see if this theme can be converted as a Photography blog theme, eg, like bennyliew.com , rithzal.com or something similar to this.

    photography is something new and really catching up fast. so this will surely add more subscribers to your theme.

    I hope you will consider this. come up with more photography blog theme. 1 colum with large view eg, support 900pix photos.

    with footer or whatever nice. hope to see that kind of theme. thanks.

  24. The TIB Theme looks great! Any specific release date planned at the moment?

    - Michael

    • Nothing final, *hopefully* within a couple weeks.

      • Feel free to keep me updated. We need a fresh, new theme and we’ll need it here soon, so if either make their way through a bit sooner, we’ll definitely be signing up.

  25. Your style is unique!

    Really like your themes. More themes plz! :)

  26. great news theme! will it have twitter feeds built in?

  27. It would be great to have a standard blog style option for the NewsBlog theme besides the magazine style

  28. Wow, those two themes look outstanding! I cannot wait for them to be released, I several places for both of them! :-)

  29. I love the eNews theme! Can’t wait to use it. But, I sure hope the featured items content is automatically scrolling. :)

  30. Nice themes, I like them both!! I really like the detail and the fact that you don’t keep us in the dark on your new themes.

    The news theme will be a big hit but curious if an E-Commerce theme is in the works anytime soon?

    Keep up the great work!!

  31. Hey your twitter icons in the navbar not show the twitter update you shoild fix it

  32. Your themes are really excellent! I was thinking of only being member for one year, but since you keep making more and more great themes, I will continue my membership! Keep up the great work.

    PS! Would love a theme specially made for AdSense! Would this be possible?

  33. I can’t seem to find the video tutorials in the members area.
    Am I missing something?

  34. Both the themes are quite good. I am waiting for ‘Bold’ to comeout.

  35. Great work on the new themes, I especially look forward to the news theme.

  36. Hi – I’m a newbie & just starting my own business, looking into creating my own website and/or blog. I kept being drawn to your themes after doing some searching around- great style, organization, uniqueness & class! Great work!! One suggestion – could you add a search box on your site? Would like to search for specific features & retrieve those themes only to look through. If possible, could you modify some more themes to add search option too? I’m focused in ‘search industry’. Helpful when there’s a search box and you don’t want to navigate the whole site to find something specific.

    Thanks – Helen

  37. Great work Nick, the new themes look excellent and really looking forward to using them. My only ‘gripe’ would be on the Bold theme, the two date tags/boxes on the top two boxes are a bit big and cumbersome. Bit still, looking great!!

  38. Just joined today and eager to get my hands on the news/magazine theme – looks great!

    - Arik

  39. The eNews looks sexy! Might be the perfect time to change my blog’s theme once it’s ready

  40. Once again, great themes!

    You wouldn’t happen to have a ballpark estimate of when eNews theme will be released would ya? If no idea, that’s cool – i’ll just have to wait as patiently as possible, haha!
    :-)

    Cheers!

  41. Great designs! I’ve seen so many photo portfolios and video sites, but there are no useful templates for music composers and bands. I would love to see a audio/video portfolio design in the furure from you. I’m considering to join in elegant themes after that happens :)

  42. The sneak peeks are looking good already. Can’t wait for the releases. Have you got any photo gallery projects for future?

  43. Great Themes,
    I’m really waiting for the magazine theme. That one kinda catches my attention. Try to make it a little premium(like marshable.com) ;) you can take a look at this theme and try to design something better- with curved lines too! :)

    • Help! I saw your reply that “your work is outstanding… I don’t understand. Is Elegant themes a way to create my own website, which is what I need? I’m clueless…sorry. M:}

  44. I’m a newish member, wanted to share my enthusiasm for the upcoming newsblog theme.

    Would encourage looking at possibility of expanding Options page to allow custom border images; vertical-border.gif,horizontal-border.gif, topright-corner,topleft-corner,bottom right, bottom left.

    Don’t know if its feasible or alignment would be a problem but it would allow greater personal touch to elegant sites.

    thanks for great work at an insane price.

  45. You do have several magazine themes before such as GrungeMag (my personal fav).

    Tho i am keenly awaiting that News mag whenver its coming out…

  46. Hi There,
    I just signed up for themes not too long ago. I have installed several and there are aspects on all the ones I’ve tried and they don’t seem to work. eGamer, eNews, Coldstone, etc. I’m not new to WordPress so don’t know whats up. eGamer doesn’t even show right when I activate the theme. eNews featured articles images don’t show up. Coldstone featured articles don’t show up either. Help appreciated.

    • If you need help please open a thread in the support forum.

  47. Joined about a week ago… I’ve looked at most of the video tutorials and they are just what I need.

    Uploading via FTP and CHModing all clearly explained.

    Looking forward to setting up eBusiness in CMS page mode.

  48. themes look fantastic!.tank tutorial nya boss

  49. Hello I just came across your website I think it is rather elegant! I decided to join but couldn’t because you only have a paypal payment system. Payapal is currently not available in my country (Nigeria). Kindly advice on how else I can pay. Thanks

  50. an excellent blog if i ever seen one. If you are the type to update your website daily, then you have gained one daily reader in me today. Please keep up the super work.
