Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Improvements suggested by new user

Hi guys,

I stumbled across this theme and am very impressed with it.

However, I think it could be improved a bit. So here are a few suggestions...

1. A backup facility for all settings ans stylesheet changes. Perhaps this is alreasy there but I have not seen if so.

2. Looks ... I think the fonts used are way to large and chunky/blocky. I have modified them as shown on this site: http://homeschool.ac.nz/ and I think they look a lot nicer. Of course this is subjective :-) but I thought I would let you know.

3. To make the changes required me to meddle a wee bit with the style sheet which is a shame as it is amazingly customizable without touching the raw .css coding. Thus I think it would be nice to be able to customize heading font sizes from the settings pages.

4. The theme upload is quite big compared to many themes. I would personally remove all except a few of the favicons to slim the theme down. I personally will probably never use any of them.

5. The SEARCH box has no search text next to it or inside it. how 'bout a "...search here..." text in the search box?

6. The small grey rectanglar bullets in the LHS and RHS columns -- I would like them to be round bullets.

7. Another way-out idea -- I guess you could have sets of settings that would entirely theme a site with a certain font set and colors just by pulling the settings out of a file or database. Thus users could submit a "theme file" for others to use.
Many thanks guys.

Everything you mention is in the works or planned, except 4), which I'll put on my To Do list.

Another thought for the TODO list Flynn ...

Gmal and Gmail's settings have "Save" buttons at the top AND bottom of the page.

Personally, I would make the button smaller and put it at top and bottom so scrolling is not so necessary.

Thanks for the earlier reply!

Very happy to donate to this work once we are sure that we are going to use it longer term.
