Twenty Eleven Theme And/Or Its Replacement Suggestions

  1. Hello,

    I would like to make a list of things that I would like to see added to the Twenty Eleven theme, which is my current overall favorite theme, and/or its future replacement. :)

    1. More Columns And Layouts (Especially Three Column Layouts):

    Before Microsoft closed Windows Live Spaces (we had the option to move to WordPress.com, fortunately, which I like better than Windows Live Spaces overall), I was using a Three Column Layout, like the Pilcrow theme's Three Column Sidebar-Content-Sidebar Layout; I would like to see the Twenty Eleven theme become the most flexible free WordPress.com blog in this area by supporting all the Layout and Column options of all the free WordPress.com themes or at least the Three Column Sidebar-Content-Sidebar Layout ;) , and I think that the Single Column option should have the option to not make the theme/blog show narrow so that the Header Images & the rest of the blog keeps the normal width of the other Columns options like the Two Column option (when using the Single Column option the blog looks narrow and the Header Images show smaller).

    2. Sidebars For Posts:

    I would like the option to show Sidebars on Posts, for those of us who might want that option. ;)

    3. More Header Options:

    I love that the ability to have multiple Header Images and Randomizing of those images is in the Twenty Elven theme but I think that it would also be nice to have the option to choose what order Header Images are shown in and/or be able to choose which pages certain Header Images are shown on, I think that there should be an option to make use of some of the unused Header space by increasing the size of the Search Box Widget and/or an option to add a RSS Feed Icon With Text Widget for Posts & Comments and/or an option to add a Follow Button Widget and/or an option to add an Author/Gravatar Widget to the Header.

    4. Font Options:

    I think that it would be nice to be able to choose between at least one or more Serif Fonts (Times New Roman/Et Cetera), one or more Sans Serif Fonts (Arial/Et Cetera), to be able to change the Font Size for the Title and/or Tagline and/or Menus and/or Body Text, and to be able to change the Color of Fonts.

    5. More Post/Page Formats:

    I would like to see more Post/Page Formats added like the Pilcrow theme's (At least I think that these two Post/Page Formats are available in that theme, if not, I still would like to see these two Page/Post Formats added) Links Page/Post Format (Where the Blogroll/Links are automatically shown in a list for that Page/Post) And Archives Page/Post Format (Where the Archives are automatically shown in a list for that Page/Post); an About Me Page/Post Format (To allow an automatically organized/formated About Me Page/Post, a Contact Me Page/Post Format (Where a Contact Me Page/Post is automatically formated, a Random Post/Page Format (Where a Random Post and/or Page is shown when clicked), et cetera.

    6. Home Page Options:

    I think that it would be nice to be able to Like and/or Comment on Posts straight from the Home Page without having to click on the Post when the Post is already fully viewable from the Home Page, and I think that it would be nice to be able to change the Home Page to various Page Formats like the Showcase Theme Format without having to create a new Page & setting that as the Front Page (this might be available already, if so, I apologize in advance :D ).

    7. Post Information Options:

    I think that the Comment Bubble to the right of the Title of a Post should have text that lets you know that it is for Comments and that you can also Comment by clicking it (something like Click Here To Comment And/Or View Comments, or something like that), under the Title I think that The Posted On should be easier to see and that is should have the option to show the Time when the Post was Posted, I think that clearly separate & easy to see & next to The Posted On there should be an option for a Posted By (Showing who Posted the Post), I think that the Share This should be clearly separate from Posted In & Tagged & Reply, and I think that Posted In & Tagged & Reply should be clearly separate from each other with a divider and/or icon & that they should be easier to see (some themes already do a pretty good job of separating them such as the Pilcrow theme and some others).

    8. Menu And Sidebar/Footer Widget Options:

    I think that there should be an option to Bold Menu Titles so that they are easier to see, and I think that an option for dividers and/or other methods should be used to better separate Sidebar/Footer Widgets from each other so that they are easier to see and so that there is a clear separation between them.

    9. More Background Options:

    I think that it would be nice to be able to choose multiple backgrounds that can be randomly shown, like with Header Images.

    Well that is all that I can think of at this time, I would like to see the Twenty Eleven theme and/or its replacement become the most balanced & flexible free WordPress.com theme(s) available, thank you and keep up the good work. :)

    Fin,
    -John Jr :)
