So my adventures with this theme weren’t the greatest. It’s still nice, clean, modern, simple… but there’s one problem. It hasn’t been updated in a year. And something isn’t working right – the WooCommerce based store. I was playing around with a store in a new installation but on the product page, the menu went AWOL. Seeing that it had a year old WooCommerce plugin bundled with the theme, that was updated.
And the menu now worked!
But the page displaying all the products was turned into a mess. Rather than be side by side, it looked like somebody had sneezed them onto the screen and they stayed wherever they stuck. One up there, another over there. Not good.
Time to get a new theme.
The past few days has had me looking around ThemeForest for a suitable template, and forever checking on Namecheap for a suitable TSKY-oriented domain. But it was not to be. So I tried for something else, and along came Dobondobondo. It’s also the name of the rap group featuring Mami and Tomomi from Scandal, and surprisingly, neither they (nor nobody else) had registered the .com domain. A discount coupon later, and I had the domain and hosting for $23. And it was instantly accessible. Brilliant!
Now for the harder part. While I was set on purchasing one of two particular themes, I came across Atelier on ThemeForest. A quick check of the demos and I was in. A purchase was quickly made.
After sleeping yesterday after all that, and then dinner at my friend’s place, it was down to business. I was super-tired and only wanted to spend an hour or so on it, but I didn’t stop ’til 7am.
So what am I selling? Stuff. Stuff I’ve bought over the years that has been used very few times, if at all. Ultimately I’d love to get a brand or something, do some t-shirts and poster prints, but for now it’s all about clearing my wardrobe and storage boxes of stuff that’s better off being used by somebody.
