    Hi!

    I recently wrote a post regarding my thoughts on WordPress themes. Following the response I got, I thought it may be of value to theme designers, but I’m not sure who to forward the link to.

    The link to the post is:

    Themes Staff do monitor threads in this forum. Though I could be wrong, as you have a premium theme and as all themes here have different features if your post is focused on premium themes you may be best served by posting to the premium themes forum. If that’s the case then that “premium” link is found in your dashboard here > Appearance > Themes

    The post is about the free themes available on WordPress.com.

    @lisa,
    I agree with the things in your post. Instead of writing a post of my own though, I’ll just add my suggestion/s here.

    Suggestion:
    Header Image – ability to downsize it in respect of height. In some themes I find the size overpowering and it doesn’t always fit well with the content. I’ve seen other comments from other bloggers who have the same issue.

    My current work-around:
    I went to the extreme of customizing my current theme (zBench) to use the banner as a “header” with the help of CSS, but it won’t work well in themes with post format options which actively uses the header image area.

    Awesome post, Lisa! I (not surprisingly) love posts about WordPress themes. :) Thanks for sharing it here.
