it maybe a demo_content.php script that will run when you click the install demo button.
In this script, it will auto insert posts (wp_insert_post) , portfolio,comments. resource of the content will be link to a exists folder (example : images).
There are some data will be relative to other , when you insert , you can get their’ID so we can make relative between data.
$wpdb->insert_id
Insert custom data suck as portfolios,slider contents. You’re creator of them so you will know how to insert them
Anything else?

Thank you for the reply !

That’s a good idea !

But if the data file was to be integrated directly in the customer’s package/installation, would it not be better to directly do the upload with an .sql file instead of an xml file that will be hooked with wp_insert_posts ?

Hi !

I have been struggling to find a tutorial to help me achieve this idea :

The WordPress default importer is not quite efficient for themes sold here as they contain, in addition to posts, custom options, sliders, widgets configuration, etc.

I’d like to be able to offer a one-click demo data installation to my customers. Does anybody know about a tutorial on how to achieve that ? I have seen some themes that offer this One-click demo data install, so i suppose it is possible :)

Thanks in advance !

Envato covers the initial PayPal fee(as far as I can tell, I don’t see anything that would suggest otherwise), and if I remember correctly there isn’t a withdrawal(as in PayPal to your bank) fee anymore. The only downside to this is it can take up to five business days. I haven’t used any of the other payment options so I can’t comment on those.

Thanks a lot for your answer ! That’s exactly what i wanted to know because on other platforms, there is a 4% upon receiving funds in paypal. And for many thousands of dollars, that’s a lot !

Regards

Dear fellow authors, I am planning make a withdrawal, and i live in Canada. I was wondering which option between wire transfer and paypal you think is better. Are there any fees for receiving the funds in paypal ? Regards

I think you are uploading the wrong file.

Usually the files you download from ThemeForest have two zip files. One that contains many things (help file, license, demo data, etc) and one for the theme itself.

When you upload your theme, you should upload this last one.

How can you know which file to upload ? Well just unzip the file and check if it looks like a wordpress folder (if it has the style.css file). If it does not, then you should be looking for another zip file in the package.

I would recommand you not to stick with one of these frameworks. After all, you want to sell a theme, not a child theme :) I also don’t think that your theme will be accepted for sale on TF if it is built on Genesis, WooFramework, etc.
There is an entire category for Genesis themes: http://themeforest.net/category/wordpress/frameworks
But it contains 12 items since 2010, and the total sales of this category is less than many many themes in the regular wordpress categories…
True, but that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t be approved. ;-)

Of course :)

I think its pretty crucial to have an options panel, from my experience people are generally quite lazy (or short of time) and prefer to set stuff via an options panel rather than doing coding :p

I personally use: https://github.com/sy4mil/Options-Framework

I’m far from being a PHP expert and I find it easy to use.

I agree with this ! I don’t think you could be able to offer a theme that is minimally customizable without an admin panel. No one would buy that except if your theme is extraordinarily unique ! You might consider for example HTML templates if you don’t like the idea of an admin panel !

Hello once again gnrocks, newsletter input blue, which color you will prefer ?

Hi Ali !

I think that it is quite good overall ! But you should think about making it responsive, or at least less wide.

I also see an issue on the social buttons. There’s a white (gray?) shadow on a light background. Also, the shadow is not uniform across top/bottom of icon.

I think you should leave some space between the message and the sidebar on the bottom.

Also, why is the newsletter input blue ?

You should move the newsletter box below the countdown. It is a very important part of the website.

Good luck !

Hi again !

If you put the newsletter box inside the shadowed box, then you willl need some contrast to make it noticeable. Some light grey could be good. But make it big and bold. I also noticed that there an inner blue focus when you click on the newsletter input. Remove it and make the focus some dark grey outside of the newsletter box.

In my opinion, remove the rounded corners and the background around “WE WILL BE BACK ONLINE IN ”.

I also noticed a problem in the icons color. Why are they colorful down and black/white above ?

Also, you could add some more features.

Example : Below the message : “Our site is ….” add a tabbed section for contact, news, a carousel of works that will open in lightbox.

These are just ideas…

Good luck !
