    First, Thanks so much for taking the time to make these themes. I am using Asteroid. I am in the process of putting together a detailed CV/Resume/Portfolio website and wanted to ask anyone and everyone with experience in using the Asteroid theme if they had any comments or advice as to how I could make my site better. Be advised, the text on the index page is a draft -mainly filler-I am using to get an idea of the layout. I am pretty new at creating websites and VERY new to WordPress so forgive me for my stupid questions.
    Thanks again Ron!

    You could further personalize your site by using a custom background image. You can also choose a different color as your main motif. You can add css codes for those color changes on Asteroid Options -> Custom CSS. I’m afraid I don’t have much advise on creating a portfolio website.

    I don’t know if you’re aware of this but editing theme files is not recommended. Whenever a theme is updated, all of its files are replaced with a new one so all modifications are lost. https://ronangelo.com/topic/customizing-wordpress-themes/

    I noticed you have a flash file hard-coded into where the header is supposed to be. You could have easily accomplished this by adding your code on a text widget then placing it on the header widget area.
