I have a feeling people are going to disagree but:

If someone wants a website, and they are not ready to pay over $200, then they don’t really want a website…

My last company quite regularly billed over $100k for custom builds that weren’t too much more effort than half of the themes here.

Sure I know the pricing model is totally different for volume sales :-)

looks interesting.. Is this pretty common at TF for WP themes?

Hi There, What’s the best strategy for making a truly multi-lingual WP theme.

For example, somewhere there should be a config setting to select or add supported languages. Then each page (and perhaps even post) should have a direct counterpart in each of the selected languages.

I’m done this in more advanced ‘enterprise’ style systems and I’ve got about 3 different ways I can think of to do it in WP but I’m interested in peoples opinions as to what the ‘best’ way of doing it is?

Thanks very much indeed!

Hi There, I’m using a preprocessor to compile SASS /SCSS and .tpl files (either Mustache or HAML ) on the fly whenever a source file is edited. The result is that 20-30 scss files (buttons.scss, header.scss, fonts.scss etc) are all combined then minified then stored as one css file.

What I want to do is set the Appearance > Editor to only edit .scss or .sass or .haml files and not show .php and .css file.

Is this possible in WordPress?

I’ve asked over at github and got and istant reply that it should be done through css as it’s not part of this version.

if anyones interested:

#option-tree-sub-header, .option-tree-save-layout{ display:none; } at the bottom of the ot-admin.css file

Hi There, I want to remove this bar which runs across the top of option-tree 2? Any ideas as to how this can be done?

Thank You!!

Fixed.. realised it HAS to be invoked from functions.php and no other file.. as far as I could see. PS: it would be nice to have a $OT = new OptionTree(configOptions) instantiator instead of this.

Question: How do I get rid of the “New Layout” bar?

I’ve followed the documentation for using OT in theme mode however it doesnt show up in Theme Options unless I enable it as a plugin which I was hoping to avoid?

Has anyone else seen this? Can someone point to to some reference for loading it as part of a theme (and not as a plugin)?

Thanks very much

Thanks for the responses!

The problem I have is that I’m a very long time PHP dev (over 10 years) and have done a few wordpress sites but get quite frustrated with not having a lot of the more powerful features to hand which I usually like to use (Cache/Rest/Backbone/Compass/Sass etc) when I build custom platforms. I know there’s all kinds of plugins to hack this stuff into place but I’d rather not do it like this. I have pretty heavyweight framework which I’m in the process of trimming down and bridging into WP as a theme framework for me to use and perhaps even open-source.

My initial thoughts were to perhaps subsidise my efforts by porting through some pretty wild experimental sites I’ve got stored which previously wouldn’t have been easily possible in wordpress hopefully adding a few pennies to my kitty to balance out the time invested.

These would be my first themes on TF but they really wouldn’t follow the usual theme structures. I’m just keen to find out if it’s basically a non starter as I’ve read the theme submission rules which seem to suggest that non-standard stuff might be case for refusal.

Do any staff ever monitor these forums?
