Ok so here is one loop I have in my portfolio shortcode : http://snippi.com/s/0pzi40n

When I use this exact loop code in the index.php just to test it, everything work fine but when it’s in a shortcode it doesn’t.

I suspect it’s the “endwhile/endif” being place before the “return $output;”

What it does is that it display the code normally but then add a new box with all of the post’s content under .. pretty damn frustrating.

Do you guys have any idea what’s happening?

I think if you make the standards to high, you will eventually end up with a marketplace where only a few designers will be able to make the grade. If that happens, then you will find more and more designs that are similar because I would believe that every designer has his/her own style. I don’t think the standards should be raised. In business, you let the marketplace decide such things. If the customers want to buy what you would consider a lower quality theme, let them. If they want to buy the higher quality theme, let them do that. Nothing is stopping you elite designers from upping the bar yourselfs. It does create more competition for you. But like you say, if you design is truly great, let the marketplace buy it.

That make a lot of sense.

ic.. or you can take advantage and get lots of themes accepted yourself and make good $ ;)

It’s not about the money.

The thing is .. it’s always been harder and harder to get theme approved over the time .. and it’s normal. If you take a look at theme uploaded 2 years ago .. they would never be approved today.

I just think it’s been a while since that bar raised a little bit .. I am not talking about drastic change .. just make it slightly higher.

But maybe I’m wrong and every theme approved belong there. I don’t know.

What is really low sales? Less then 100 the first month?

Well it’s not much about sales but maybe some kind of variety .. I think that some theme with low sales but unique design/features will sell in the long run .. but right now with the volume of theme approved, TF could be a little bit more strict.

Just a little bit you know, like .. approve 10% less theme than what is approved right now .. or even just 5% less …

I am amazed by the number of themes uploaded and approved everyday on TF. Things sure changes in 2-3 years :)

I also see a lot of them with really low sales so I am wondering, maybe it would be good to have higher standards now that we have a LOT of themes on the market?

What do you guys think?

What about wp_enqueue_script( ‘jquery’ ); ? And don’t forget to set jQuery as a dependency for any scripts that are jQuery based.

Ah, that was it. I just looked at the way I was doing it on other theme and it was there, no idea why I take this off this time.

How do you set jQuery as “dependency” ?

how did you enqueue jquery?

In my functions.php I did this :

function cdfScripts() {

wp_register_script('tabs', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/tabs.js'); 
wp_register_script('twitter', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/twitter.js');
wp_enqueue_script('tabs');
wp_enqueue_script('twitter');

}

add_action(‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘cdfScripts’);

Hey guys, I’m currently coding a theme and I run into a small problem.

On my local host, <?php wp_head(); ?> does output all my enqueued script and jquery.js .. but when I upload the theme on my hosting .. jquery.js is not outputted anymore, only my enqueued script .. what’s happening there? First time that happen to me.

I know there was a lot of posts about Ratings but here’s my little idea.

When rating an item, buyers should have the options to leave a comment as well, attached with their rating, explaining why they gave a 5 stars .. or a 1 star. That way it would be really easy for potential buyers to go trough the rating page and see the reason why a theme is high rated, or low rating.

Sometimes a buyer might think it’s not a good theme for X reason, that someone else doesn’t really care. Some user are looking for flexibility, other are looking for great support. Would be nice to know what that “star” rating means to buyers.
