So I had been using the BreakingNews WordPress Theme from ThemeWarrior.com since October of 2010 on DragonBlogger.com, they allow you to download and use the theme for free but now I am looking for some help so I purchased the theme so that I can take advantage of the Theme support and have access to the Theme upgrades. The theme was upgraded several times but none of the read me notes show that it fixes my issue in that when you load DragonBlogger.com for the first seconds or so my menu bar shows expanded before it finally contracts into sub menus. This is a minor cosmetic glitch but it is still a noticeable one and I don’t like it, I am hoping to find support from the developers on how to resolve it.
I do think ThemeWarrior provides some quality themes and I have been extremely happy with how customizable the BreakingNewz theme is, other than this one cosmetic issue the theme was the best decision I have made. I probably would have used Thesis or Genesis if I didn’t find BreakingNewz, but I am using the All in One SEO Pack for my site’s SEO since ThemeWarrior doesn’t have SEO built in like Thesis does. This was my 2nd theme for DragonBlogger.com in over 2 years and I typically don’t change themes unless it just doesn’t work for what I need, I had always wanted a “magazine” style theme and BreakingNewz offered exactly the features I was looking for and it was free.
Still, for $29.99 the Theme even at cost was a fraction of the cost of Thesis and is a great value for me.
