Could we get more info about what is “Advanced Integration” from the creators of the plugin? I would be interested in what does this mean for the EDD plugin..
Hey Ruben, essentially anything that goes beyond basic compatibility and styling of the default eCommerce elements provided by the plugin could be considered “Advanced Integration”. As @mordauk mentioned this could be the creation of custom templates to better integrate & customize the eCommerce features, but could go far beyond that as well. Fundamentally we’ll be looking for theme designs here that really enhance the eCommerce experience for both the theme user as well as the customer. The rest is up to you!
Thank you for your information. I have a question, if my item is multi-purpose eligible for the 5 themes with the best use of advanced design techniques (e.g. animation, parallax, masonry, responsiveness, CSS3, etc.)?
We will be assessing final eligibility of all themes once the contest closes, but if you’ve used any of the suggested techniques you should be in the running
I wanted to make quick a clarification based on some of the submissions we’re seeing. Genre-specific themes are ones that have a single, specific, niche focus, such as a food blog, or a travel blog, etc., as mentioned in the original announcement. In other words, they should have something unique in the design and/or functionality that is intended for that specific type of blog use. Along with the overall aesthetic, for example, a Food Blog might also have some unique styling/layout options for displaying recipe info, or a Travel Blog might have a fun and engaging use of Google Maps.
Themes that are suitable for any/all of these genres are actually multi-purpose themes, and will not be eligible for the genre-specific prizes!
It’s not too late to update your current themes or submit new ones with a genre-specific use in mind, and there’s still plenty of opportunity to be in the running for our many Ghost prizes! Best of luck and keep the great themes coming
I just did an AudioJungle search for my own username and the suggestion I got for “other possible searches” was “pink bra”. Can anyone beat that?
Oh didn’t you know? We’ve started a partnership with Victoria Secret selling undergarments on our new marketplace LingerieValley – just kidding!
But seriously good points all around. I’ve put in an email to Search Team with everyone’s concerns and ideas. Thanks for posting!
Just updated my theme for better WooCommerce support. It also supports bbPress and BuddyPress.
Hey @dunhakdis, glad to see your commitment to supporting and improving your items (it’s really a great theme!), but as it already had eCommerce integration it is not eligible for this contest. We certainly encourage you to submit any new themes with eCommerce and/or BuddyPress integration, and if they’re anywhere as good as Klein I’m sure they’ll have a great shot at winning some prizes!
It states that the preview image must be one seamless image. Does this mean i have join all my individual photos from preview app into one single photo? P.S I have already submitted my theme. Will this requirement affect my submission? @EricSchwartz
Each article template screenshot must be a single seamless image. So if you have 6 article templates, you’ll need to have (at least) 7 screenshots: 1 showing the app menu styling, and 1 for each included template. Depending on how you capture the screenshot for each template, you may need to stitch images together.
If you have an issue resubmitting by the deadline due to the updated preview image requirement, contact me via my profile page.
Hey everyone, in reviewing the submitted items we made some needed minor revisions to the submission requirements, namely basic preview image formatting, and as part of that we conducted a re-review of all approved themes. Authors with previously approved themes were personally notified ahead of time. While we assessed the situation pending items have been held in the queue longer than usual, so thanks so much for your patience!
@Studio164a Yep, eligibility is based on submission date, so items hanging out in the queue are still okay. If you have any issues with your theme(s) relating to the revised submission requirements please feel free to contact me via my profile page.
This is the last weekend to submit your TypeEngine themes for the contest, so good luck to all and happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the U.S.!
