    Hi! I love what you’ve been doing so far. :)

    Here are a few ideas.

    1. Ability to add a full-width header.
    2. an optional full-width page template.
    3. Multiple color schemes, like in version 3.
    4. Custom post type for adding a blog.
    5. Responsive layout for viewing on smaller screens.

    I know #5 may be a bit tricky, but if offered as a premium feature, I’d definitely be interested.

    Nice work – I *really* like this theme! Not sure if my suggestions are already included but since I don’t know they are well hidden or possibly need to be added.

    1) Full page width.
    2) Configurable number of columns / size of video thumbnails. From 1 – 3 columns.
    3) Optional ratings. I would prefer to turn off. Haven’t uninstalled ratings widget because afraid to break working website
    4) Make comments optional. Same caveat as previous comment.
    5) Page types. Existing page great for home/video log. Would like a page type for text blogging that is more traditional but also has ability to incorporate video. Adding posts would need to be page specific.
    6) Theme color options
    7) Admin sidebar section like many other themes use.
    8) Mobile friendly version. Single column with larger text layout would be good.
    9) Setup / maintenance user manual (I volunteer to write but would need help with some features in order to provide a complete guide.)

    To add to my previous suggestions.

    10) Sticky posts.
    11) Ability to filter by rating. Possibly implemented as you do categories.
    12) Option to convert advertising areas into my own static pictures. As a paid upgrade like removing footer credits (my site is not a commercial effort).

    One new suggestion:

    13) Calculate the number of videos displayed on each page so they are evenly divisible by the number of columns (3). For example, currently 10 videos are displayed on each page. With 3 columns the last row always has 1 video on it. For 3 columns the number of videos to be displayed should be 9, 12, 15, etc.

    Cancel #13, I found the configuration option to assign the number of videos per page. Using this theme just gets better and better! Thanks for all your work!

    DeTube has stopped development and I have been trying to find new templates that will make it easy for me to translate posts (embedded videos from different hosting sites) to the new theme. I hope this will finally put an end to my search! Custom posts from detube does not show on more than half of the templates I have tried. My site contains more than a thousand videos and I could not risk it. I am hoping there is any easy way to “escape” detube (a lot of people are actually looking for solutions according to their forums).

    Another is an option for full-width and boxed would be a cool option. sliders?

    Hi Beck,
    Thanks for the message, I’d like to understand more about the DeTube custom posts and see if we can help the transition!
    Other ideas will be taken into consideration for furher releases.
    Now the #1 priority is to complete version 5.0 :)

    A youtube api auto embedder would be great. A player like DETube on the main page to show owners best videos. Show Members, Whos online are a few things I can think of off the top of my head.
