But what is your reason for NOT giving the sources away ?
I would assume they need the files so that they can give them to another company to use/change for them.
When I do print work, that client is paying for the printed, finished product. Not the digital version. Come to think of it, I have never had a client ask me for that, but if they did it would definitely be an extra charge.. It would basically be like changing the license on it.
With logos, I will give them the EPS versions but not the originals.
So I am getting ready to submit my first drupal theme and I know there isn’t many submitted already, but I just wanted to throw this question out there.
I have themed a basic Drupal setup. It has pages and stories. I have added an imagefield to the story content type.
I have also installed views so that when someone creates a view (if they choose to) it will be styled.
Now the question, how in depth do you go with theming drupal for themeforst? I mean, someone could have a basic setup like me and the theme would work fine… but if they were to say, install ubercart, there would most likely be some styling missing just because its such an enormous module.
I figured I would just cover the basics, plus the most commonly used modules (views and cck). My css is quite generic so it will work with most modules, but something like ubercart or advanced forum ads an entirely new level of theming. It probably takes me twice as long to theme ubercart than it does an entire basic drupal install.
I guess this is something you need to mention when you upload your files and whatnot… and also include in the readme what modules you have tested for? I imagine that a theme tested for a module like ubercart would sell for more on themeforest just because it takes so much longer to make.
Thanks! I can’t wait to submit my theme
Something I would like to see is a number beside categories when you are browsing. The number would indicate how many templates are in that category.
ie, Corporate (25)
Just because it’s frustrating to click into a category and find nothing Of course, this won’t be so much of an issue once the site is really motoring along.
Thanks for the consideration! Amy
I do think the site needs some work, however that is why it is still in beta! I am so excited to be a part of this project. Judging from the success of envato’s other sites I have very good feeling about theme forest. Most template sites feel like it’s just a big ugly money making scheme… and to me, theme forest seems like more than that… it is a place for designers and developers to share ideas and connect (while making some moolah!).
I just go through all my RSS feeds… Id list them but there is SO MANY ! haha I cant keep up.. but its mostly a mismash of css galleries, tutorial sites (psdtuts, bittbox, etc), random design sites (such as Abduzeedo and Andy Rutledge).. I also spend a lot of time looking at flickr… and when Im sick of staring at a screen I go for a horseback ride around the lake!
I’ve been using Drupal and Ubercart for quite a while, but we are working on switching over to Magento (integrated into Drupal). Magento looks fantastic.
