I’ve tried contacting the author of the quiven theme but haven’t gotten a response yet and was wondering if any other authors might know how to solve this bug. Theme was installed and working great on a site just the other day, and today there’s an error where the twitter widget used to be. The error being displayed is:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function Quiven_time_diff() in /home/content/44/9750544/html/wp-content/themes/quiven/lib/widgets/widgets.php on line 957
If there’s a call to an undefined function then is something not being included properly maybe? And it’s weird because it was working fine just the other day and as far as i know nothing changed.
Any help or guidance would be appreciated.
i think its condescending to web professionals to say oh its easy do it for 20 bucks when you don’t have the skill-set to judge whats easy and whats not.
Warm fuzzies for all the mod staff and their infinite patience!
For me personally it’s functionality, because work is time. If something already works the way I need it to, then I’ll be purchasing that one rather than spending time trying to get the other one to do what I need. Spending an extra $10 is worth it to save time and frustration in something I may not know how to accomplish.
Something I’ve been interested in is creating wordpress template designs for authors. Do authors only consider a split percentage based project..ie 30/70 if they take on a designer for that project. Or are authors open to purchasing a full PSD with all necessary pages defined by project scope. If any would be open to something like that what would you view as a fair price? What problems may you see with something like this?
I’m not over there, but my friend is. He said SC2 : Hots is looking pretty awesome with all the new units they’re introducing…going to be a totally new game!

I was in a similar situation about 4 years ago, but nowadays i’m a designer / front end developer at a web studio. Here’s a basic rundown of how i transitioned from print designer to breathing and eating web.
- It’s always best to 100% know what niche you want to go into…2 most general are Designer or Developer.
- If your going designer route as I did myself you shall definitely need photoshop, I used dreamweaver a lot for coding when I started out but today I live out of textmate. If your on a mac I highly recommend textmate. If your windows based I enjoyed aptana studio for awhile. It’s a nice open source code editor.
- Hosting: Be weary of cheap hosting sites as there are security risks with the ones that sell unlimited hosting for $6 bucks a month. Media temple has great scalable hosting plans, and wonderful customer service from my experiences.
- Learning! The most fun part . The school of envato is the way to go, especially with how many tut sites they’ve expanded out.http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/ – great design, and front end coding tutorials here that can walk you even through basics, to advanced UI / UX theory. http://net.tutsplus.com/ – a bit more code heavy but have great screen casts and tutorials to build out parts of a site or even slicing and coding out a PSD .
- Something else that helped me immensely is themeforest. When I first started out I saw all kinds of awesome site templates and had no clue how some of the sidebars were coded out, navigations, or even general layout with proper containers and floats. So I bought several site templates to dig through the code and see how some of the pro’s did it. Really helped connect a lot of dots for me. However no stealing its bad karma.
- Something I didn’t use as a learning tool when starting out but is incredible now is carsonified – think vitamin. They cover pretty much everything. http://thinkvitamin.com/
FTP : filezilla’s great but when you get further down the road look into subversion control with springloops, it’s a life saver.
Would I go about this by creating a custom post type or how do I begin to tie in custom options that can create this functionality? I’ve been searching wptuts website to try and find a tutorial close to what I’m looking for.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Yes, $2k US Dollars (would I need to change that out if i hire a developer outside the US?)
Also I’m not 100% sure what you mean by CRUD screens =(. Is that referring to whats setup in the databse for handling the users?
I have a quick budget question for anyone that may be able to help me out.
I’m working on a personal project outside of my studio and curious what kind of budget I would need for the hiring a developer to help me out with several tasks.
I was considering using codeigniter due to that’s what my employer has us use, and I’m most familiar with. However I love wordpress and would much rather use a solid wordpress theme as a starting point for this personal project and build it out from there rather than using a framework like codeigniter.
Initial Developer Tasks -Creating a Register / login functionality to create basic user profiles. -Once logging in: redirect to a simple edit page where they can edit a logo / bio / couple links. -Helping tie this into the front end pages where this info is displayed in a listing format.
This isn’t a social networking thing. More of a directory based site where vendors can sign up and edit basic info they will have displayed on the site, and people looking for them can see a short bio and a couple images. It’s a side project for fun to see how it grows.
I have two thousand right now for developer budget, but not sure if it will cover a user profile system. I would like to do this as a project / milestone based quote with 50% retainer upfront. Just want to make sure I have appropriate funds for the developer.
Also last but not least, I’m always impressed with the talent in the envato community and is wondering if anyone would be interested in working on this, or if there’s a theme with login / some user functionality already.
