Hi all,
I just got to know about this great forum, and im sure I will get some quality advice and experts to do some jobs for me in here.

1st, I paid for a theme and had it customised for me (I am a newbie and I dont know much about programing wordpress (especially where I have to copy and paste code)

Now, the second customs is on the way and I want to ask u guys to evaluate the site, while its still with the cusoms people to see if there are issues we need to sort out before they hand over to me

Go here runwaymagazineafrica.com - PREVIEW

Here are the next customs they are about to do:

1. ADD small "SPONSOR ADS" under the WP-Polls eg WP-Chatter

2. ADD events widget = use - WordPress › The Events Calendar « WordPress Plugins

3. CHANGE THE FLICKR WIDGET to http://flickr.com/badge.gne (flash type)

4. CHANGE BACKGROUND to Absolute Background Textures Archive

5. ADD NEW SIDE TAB (Popular/ Recent/ Comment) = eg - Solostream WordPress Themes Demo

Then after this, The next set of cusomization I want include:

1. Scrolling News Plugin/Widget (Add Under Nav Buttons) Should show on all pages jQuery liScroll - a jQuery News Ticker

2. Change the search Engine to Adsense for Search ( https://www.google.com/adsense/suppo...l=en&topic=144 )

3. Change website name to our own logo-type name

4. Change the advert on header to subscribe AD eg Allure magazine: Find new hair ideas, makeup looks, and the best beauty products: allure.com

Also I was doing a lot of research and I found a lot of people seem to like some plugins and I was gonna ask if these are too much for one site:

    It's good but needs lots of modifications to do. It's a little bit cluttered though. And the post is unnoticeable. Post should be enticing to the eyes coz' that's what readers are looking for in the first place.

    Iam not commenting on your site, except that it seems a bit crowded. But you have put up a good collection of WP plugins which definitely is a one stop locator for these.

      Why all the plugins?

      You do realize that with each WP plugin, it's like putting a bag of bricks on your website? It takes resources to hall those bricks and you have piled them on...




      You might want to consult with someone on the WF who specializes in WP.
