Thanks for this list, bro. One thing that I get, as a designer like yourself, is that certain clients do not like the feel of Helvetica (or even Helvetica Neue) - which is somewhat shocking to me. Otherwise good round up. You should do a post about the fonts that clients want that designers hate. HA! :)

I do have a question on this: I'm wrestling on the code to capture posts from child categories versus parent categories. Any advice?

Hey,

How I did it is I replaced the <li> and </li> codes with my own html and css. The <li> codes create lists for each post, and that is usually in a vertical fashion.

------------------

<li><div><a href="<? the_permalink()?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?></a></div> <div> <h3><a href="<? the_permalink()?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3> <?php the_time('M j, Y') ?> </div> </li>

------------------

I replaced the opening <li> with <div class="pleft"> and replaced the closing </li> with </div> as my html tags. Then I write my CSS to fit that specific div class needs on your website. For example, a sample pleft class could look like this:

.pleft {float:left; padding:2px; margin:10px; width:278px; height:190px;}

I use the float: selector on my CSS to move posts horizontally, and the margins and padding to give each post spacing within each other. I added in a specific width and height for additional examples.

Hope this helps.
