Effectus Webinar with Live Demo and Q&A

by Chris Pearson · 19 comments

If you’re interested in a detailed look at the Effectus Skin from DIYthemes, you’ll enjoy the webinar I co-hosted with Rick Anderson of BYOBWebsite.

Rick was kind enough to coordinate and record the webinar, and you can watch the Effectus Skin demo and Q&A at his site.

Also, for those of you who don’t know him already, Rick is one of the best teachers of both WordPress and Thesis, and he has helped hundreds of people learn how to control and run their own sites, without needing to rely so heavily on (expensive) developers and designers.

Enjoy the webinar!

Chris, I had missed the opportunity for the Wordpress Effectus Skin webinar as I heard from one of my friend. Good to hear from you that it is repeated again. Thanks!

I just bought the Effectus Skin for Thesis and enjoying it. Tried some of the options available and enjoying it. Have gone on to use it on my site. I like the integrated buttons in the editor and the visual editor and the easy setup.

However, I have the following suggestions:

  • The featured image crops in a rather brutal manner. It would be nice if the image adjusted to fit the entire header area seamlessly according to the device.
  • I would love some ad placeholders by default, which would really be helpful for many of us. The sidebars, below the post, after author box, header area are, I believe, ideal places for banner ads.
  • Would love to see more widgets – may be a sidebar opt-in, testimonials, featured posts, below the post opt-in!
  • Something similar to the hello bar would be a nice addition.
  • Integrated share buttons would be lovely. Or, do you suggest some plugin?

I guess these are my thoughts and suggestions after using it for a day. Hope to discover some more interesting features behind the scenes.

Thanks again for a great Skin! Kudos to the DIYthemes Team!

Hey Chris, sorry for getting late to the party. This stuff was really helpful and as looking exactly the same to me. I guess, I can join the next ones of your webinars. I’ve been starting a lot of blogs before the end of this year, so need a lot of tips and tricks to learn. Happy blogging 🙂
