Spain won’t play in the finals, mark my words
WordPress has its own colorpicker built-in already. Why bother with custom stuff? http://code.tutsplus.com/articles/how-to-use-wordpress-color-picker-api--wp-33067
I must disagree with you who think the customizer is always the best option. If your theme has only couple of “display” options, then yes, use the customizer. But if your theme has many many options, then options page is probably much better way.
From our experience so far, having a lot of options in theme customiser make users hard to follow all the stuff. Personally, we like to describe each option with lots of text so people better understand what they are doing and this is almost impossible and looks very messy with customizer.
@tommusrhodus WordPress customizer is obviously more “WordPress friendly”, can’t wait to see the “user friendly” improvements in 4.0.
Here’s our opinion…
1. Demo website:
To our opinion, demo website is the most important thing! Of course you will need a great design and bunch of cool options, but all this becomes useless if buyers are not able to see good presentation of your features. Use demo website not just as an live example but as a good overview of your entire work.
Also, I see obvious bugs on demo websites from time to time. Check the responsiveness and cross-browser, at least on your demo pages.
Avoid custom stuff inside the theme and tend to make it as WordPress friendly as possible. Make the users see that they can easily switch from their old theme to your theme. Approximately speaking, 30% of our customers use our themes to switch from existing themes. Which means that if your theme relies on custom stuff you loose lots of customers.
3. Transparent and “useful” design (think as a customer)
Just because you are different (unique) it doesn’t mean you are useful. Just because you have learn new css technique on codrops or some other fancy website it doesn’t mean that you need to overload your theme with new “shiny disco ball” effects. I truly believe that so called “cool” design effect will rather refuse customers than attract them. Offer the people what they are used to get.
Try to learn from real successful websites, not only from themes here on ThemeForest. You are creating real thing for real people, you are not on some design competition/exhibition.
4. Make it loads fast
Nobody wants a theme which crawls. If people have to wait more than 2 seconds, they will mostly close the window and search for another one. Also, have in mind that not all the people live in the USA with hundreds of MBs internet connection speed. Try from 3G.
Yes, you will need a bit of luck, but only if you are not sure what you are doing.
Here’s a suggestion.
Allow authors to force refund for specific user and rating from that user will be cleared automatically
I say, Serbia vs USA in the finals
Who dares wins
I know that basketball is not so popular like football is but from saturday we will have chance to see some top notch players and teams.
