WP Power Stats improved by us

We found the calendar Week and Month statistics difficult to interpret. So we changed that to Last 10 days and Last 30 days. And added Last 100 days. Note that for all of these you can compare each period by dividing visitors by days. Thus having a single number to compare (visitors per day). (In the example below it shows a fairly consistent 1.5 visitors per day for all periods.)

We also extended the graph out to 15 days to give more days and to allow you to adjust for weekly patterns.

Hope you find these changes useful and an improvement.

(These changes are possible due to the open and sharing nature of WordPress add-ons. WP Power Stats add-on was adjusted.)

Icons for lists and heading pizazz

If the simple bulleted list (first one below) looks too plain add some icons. Several varieties are shown below.

If your page looks dominated by text add some icons to those headers too (see examples further below). Note they are larger.

Strictly speaking these are not graphics. They are characters of a new font. Hence they load fast; can be resized on the fly; and coloured up. Bargain!

A blackboard menu that looks so real.

Isn’t this a fabulous blackboard menu? It looks so real. And you can alter the text.
It’s easy for us to repeat – needs only a font, background image and a little bit of styling work.
Ask and we shall make it for you. Not including the squeaky, stand your hair on end, sounds 😉
(Here is an example menu page.) Built for Hainault.com.au

Too much coloured space? Try textures

With a small amount of content on a wide screen you are likely to overwhelm the viewer. This is due to large areas of solid coloured background. It can be solved…

Solution 1 – add a texture. These are images created to give a background some graininess or some small changes in the colour. The texture could be leather, paper, woven material, white noise, wallpaper patterns and many others.
