    Following feedback from UKBF and other reviews the backgrounds have now gone (but are still an option) and the CSS now removes the transparencies unless there is a background.

    This is the core theme:
    http://tradesman-theme.co.uk/

    Look past the lack of colours (this is just a demo) and tell me if it has all the right elements in place. In particular, look at the order of things towards the bottom of this page: http://tradesman-theme.co.uk/page-with-comments/ I think the actual comments should go higher on the page but none of the ways I've tried really work. Or maybe I'm too close to the design and can't see the woods for the trees.

    An example of how it could work for a gardener:

    The same but with a background:
    http://backgrounds.tradesman-theme.co.uk/

    Hi Major

    I know this is only a theme and I get the point of demoing products and services, but I would do the theme differently. The bottom line is the trader wants to get a sale, and to do that they need to be contacts.

    1. i would include a contact form
    2. i would include a video ( i know this is only a theme)
    3. I would include a section for reviews such as FB or Google

    Video is for problem/solution
    Contact form is to get clients
    REviews sections supports quality of work

    1. It's built into the theme - you can add it wherever you want
    2. Why a video? What problem does it solve? In any case adding a video is easy with wordpress - it's built into the core.
    3. Easy to add - there are umpteen ways to do this.

    If you look here you can see there are loads of options to add contact info: http://gardener.tradesman-theme.co.uk/
