  1. Direct color and gradient styling in Theme Options

    It would be very useful to be able to style the color of major elements by directly entering color values in Theme Options, particularly the main menu bar and home page call to action button.
    Maybe also for major text elements such as headings and body text. (although for these you'd probably also want controls such as font-face, size, etc).

    This would save a lot of time experimenting with different color customizations for those of us who can do this in CSS -- and it would open some color customizations to people who can't, creating a bigger market for the…

    • Multiple uses of properties on the same page, such as Portfolios, Image Carousel, etc...

      I would love to have multiple portfolios on the same page! The drag and drop features of this theme are amazing... Now I just want to use them MORE! :)

      • Image-Slider: Transitions Upgrade

        How about adding some interesting effects for image-transitions within the slider?
        Swiping right-to-left is very basic...some cool effects to engage the visitor would be great.

          • Jetpacks Infinite Scroll support

            Jetpack has a feature called Infinite Scroll, it would be nice if the "Responsive Free" theme would support that.

            • Customizing social network URLs and icons

              The recent settings are fixed, better if they can be dynamic and fully customized like: SNS 1, SNS URL 1, SNS Icon 1; SNS 2, SNS URL 2, SNS Icon2;...This will help reduce the size of the option page, and allow the user to add some uncommon or regional social networking services.

              • More column/widget options on front page

                I'd like to see the option to have 2, 3 or 4 columns on the front page and have widgets span more than one column. It would be great too if widget sizes in each column could be aligned (each widget spans one or more rows in a grid like fashion) so that the top of widgets in different columns could be aligned and the bottom of a widget would 'stretch' to the bottom of the row it ends on. This would mean that multiple comments end at the same point and reduce the amount of white space at the…

                  • Faster Theme Load Time

                    Some ideas on how to make the theme run faster:
                    I would like to see the CSS and Javascript compressed.
                    All Javscript should be at the footer of the page so the CSS loads first.
                    There seems to be a lot of CSS that isn't even being used the theme and some of it should use CSS selectors to make it more efficient.

                    The facebookm twitter and other social icons should have a image dimensions.

                    Just run a basic GTMATRIX.com analysis on the theme and you'll see.

                      We all agree with this of course. Development has already started working out what they can do.

                      Unfortunately, for example for the free themes, according to WPORG guidelines, we can’t completely compress files so there are some things that are out of our hands.

                    • Enable shortcodes in Boxes

                      Use of shortcodes within the Text of Boxes. Would be of great help!

                      • Expanded Function: Captions of Portfolio Elements

                        It would be helpful to have different captions for the default Portfolio view and the Lightbox view for Portfolio Elements. (Would be good to add this feature to carousel items as well)

                        For instance:
                        I'm a designer and would like to have a gallery of my past logo designs. The default Portfolio view would be best if the thumbnail images were presented with only short captions/brief individual titles or an option to eliminate the default caption all-together so that each thumbnail/preview image remain the primary focal point instead of a lengthy hypertext link/caption. This way the average viewer/audience for the…

                                I would like to see the drop-down menu style to be easier to tell the menus and sub-menus apart. They're difficult for the user to tell. For example, if you have a top-level menu labeled "Animals" that drops down with "Cats", "Dogs" and "Birds".. then under Cats you have "Domestic Cats" and "Wild Cats", It's hard to tell with only a small space before it indicating that they are SUB-menu items to "Cats" and then starts another Menu under "Animals" named "Dogs" after that. Hope that makes sense, but I have people asking me to change that a lot recently...…

                                • Avoid Wasted Space -- Make Header Image a *Background* for Useful Stuff

                                  Similar concerns as "Header Image-Map" suggestion, but different approach: use image as a background rather than an image-map. WP layouts almost all waste a lot of space at the top of the page. A header image that could have the site title, a logo, the search box, maybe social link-buttons, and maybe even the *menu* superimposed on it would allow a more compact use of the top of the page, and as a result, perhaps a cleaner look in the *body* of the page.

                                  Responsive behavior would be to progressively crop the image either in the center or left-side (user-selectable…

                                  • Have a truly responsive style forum as part of the theme.

                                    Presently none of the forums that you can use with this theme appear to be responsive. BuddyPress comes close but its still not the best.

                                    • I would also like to have the "Top Menu" added as an option (as in the Responsive) to the new framework.

                                      It's frequently a spot where people expect a "Home | FAQ | Contact uS ... etc menu to appear.

                                      • Banner + Logo Option in Header

                                        Hi there. I'd love this option, because We have all kinds of combinations, but the banner is lonely in his header. With a logo to it's right, one could achieve better customization levels. You could get both, the banner + logo to be clickable and I for myself would really appreciate it.

                                        • Option to always keep "full menu" in the top bar instead than "mobile" icon

                                          Others have pointed out that the "full menu" rather than the "mobile" icon should be served to tablets, which have both big screen and high resolution. The ideal would be to serve automatically the "full menu" when the screen width exceeds ?? px (1024 I would say). Otherwise, make this a choice in the setup. I would myself rather give a good experience to iPad users, even if this means serving a full menu to the fewer and fewer users with legacy phones
