My suggestion: Stop bothering yourself about others and their items or whatever.
Go create your own awesome stuff and only bother about that!
Most major sites that runs on WP are essentially “just a blog”. Any custom content types they may have are usually just an extension to the blog. It’s well acknowledged that WP sites built for non-blogging purposes struggles to achieve parallel performance & stability enjoyed by sites using most modern frameworks available today. The decision to use WP is often out of budget constraints & lack of knowledge or sometimes overly optimistical expectations of WP’s real capabilities.
I think nowadays a lot of big sites use WordPress as a full big CMS for their sites. There are tons of big magazines, webshops etc. that use WordPress.
In my studio we also use WordPress a lot to create big sites, since WordPress is really good to just build anything you need. If build right, performance is not an issue.
Very nice plugin.
Evolution at work
Yes perhaps, but as the founder of Ghost mentiones from the start he wants something pure for blogging. He was a big developer for WordPress but frustrated himself in using WordPress for ‘just a blog’ – thatswhy he started developing Ghost.
So i’m wondering: Will this goal eventually change because of community ‘pressure’ wanting more options?
It’s funny to see that Ghost has started it’s own ultime ‘blogging only’ platform purely designed for blogging and effective writing – and even from the start people are starting to figure out tricks to get it sort of working like WordPress.
The whole idea of Ghost is that it won’t be a big multi-purpose CMS – at least, that’s how they started it..
And now i see video’s and articles comparing Ghost to WordPress etc. whilest WordPress has overgrown his bloggingplatform position and Ghost focuses on the Blogging platform..
So, is Ghost also going to grow out of it’s roots to become a big CMS? Or are the people who are trying to do WordPressy things with it not getting it?
I think it isn’t allowed.
However, you say similar designs – that’s an endless discussion.
What could be the case though is that you see same the designs in different versions. For example first a PSD design template, then that same design is submitted as an HTML template and also that same design is submitted as a WordPress theme, which is totaly fine.
What about it?
It’s like suddenly everyone is asking theme related support questions at this forum.
When you post a new thread you see the “Start Thread” title above the form. Maybe there should be some message under the title that says something like “For theme related questions contact the author or use the items’ comment section” or something…
Maybe it helps reduse theme related support questions.
BORED… Seen such messages a thousand times
You are right though, but don’t expect this message will help in any way since there are allready been countless threads about it.
Best thing you could do as a customer is to keep away from from all the similar looking themes, spend a little more time searching for more unique ones ( i know, time is valuable ) and use them for your projects. This way authors with more unique themes feel satisfied and will continue creating those.
Besides that you can’t ignore and do anything about the fact that it’s also buyers’ who make certain trends popular. And if a certain trend sells there will come more and more items which follow that trend – to sell.
