Do these themes come with an I ♥ HTML/CSS pre-requirement?
Fins-rocket-themes are for coders who want to code something else besides their own sites. These themes are intended for teams that have at least one vaguely competent HTML/CSS coder.
The good news:
Many of us have worked with great graphic designers. These themes were not created by great graphic designers :(
Perhaps someday Fins will get lucky, and at least one or two themes will get some contributions of excellent graphic design. Or even just the Fins idea is copied by some such person, providing other Rocket themes.
You can also compare WordPress themes, which are often designed by extremely talented graphics artists over a period of months and even years.
- You surely want to change the colors of your site in
- You probably want to change how the layout works - at least a little bit - on the home page
- If your theme has secondary menus, you want these to link to specific targets of your choosing.
- You may want to swap out fonts
- Or you could even go whole hog and invite in your graphic design team
This is not WordPress - so you're not working through a contrived UI and a SQL database. Just go straight into the files you need to change, and change them. Simple, dumb stuff, hopefully.
