Fair enough Gareth. You´re perhaps right. I probably couldn´t enforce anything anyway. ( BTW I based my extra effort on a promise that I would maintain the site long term ;/ ) But what would you do if a client suddenly sold your work more than once to various clients? How do you protect your self in this case?

If they sold to multiple clients I would be miffed and probably see if we could set up a share scheme of some sort e.g. they pay me $xxx for each site they sell and I will manage the site move etc

Not a lot you can do about them reselling the site but by trying to help them out may give you more brownie points / potential work

I have a client I built a “website building” platform, I am paid a monthly wage for the intiial build (and a massive lump sum up front) and when a client buys a package I am paid a sum to help them get it set up.

It depends on what the contract the client signed, says.

If it says he can’t resell without your consent then he can’t and you could potentially sue him if he does.

My POV is once the client has paid for the work to be done, all the rights should go to the client and they can do what they want with it, had a couple of clients who sold their website on (along with their business) so it’s not uncommon and I think you’re being a little petty by having a clause that the client resell the website as they have paid for it.

I can walk into an Apple store, buy an iPad and walk outside and sell to anyone I like, if Apple told me I couldn’t sell my iPad as they own the device and I am basically renting it off them then I would be mightily pissed.

I know where you’re coming from, you spent x months building it and put a lot of effort for that client but at the end of the day they should be able to do what they want with it when they have paid for it.

The name for CF7 CPT is called wpcf7 (you can get this by looking at the url for a CPT in the admin)

In the query posts you need to add the following:

'post__not_in' => array(6,2,8)

You would then grab the posts from the shortcode by using the Shortcode Attributes

You have 3 real options

1) Attach a paypal cart to the theme (link)

2) Use a pre-built cart system such as Roman cart (link)

3) Use a shopping system like Opencart which will give you the full shopping experience

All 3 require coding knowledge to implement, first 2 will take a small amount but would only be viable for small sites (<10 products).

The theme you linked to doesn’t have a cart system version, your 2 options are:

1) Ask the author if they have a version being implemented

2) Find someone to build the theme into a cart system (I can help with an OC version) but it’s going to cost you a few thousand $.

Having a nightmare issue with ajax/jquery on an Opencart theme

The following is my ajax/jquery

$('#button-cart').bind('click', function() {
    $.ajax({
        url: 'index.php?route=checkout/cart/add',
        type: 'post',
        data: $('input[type=\'text\'], input[type=\'hidden\'], input[type=radio]:checked, input[type=\'checkbox\']:checked, select, textarea'),

I have a radio of items e.g.

<div id="prod-single-right">
    <div class="widget">
        <div id="option-236" class="option">
            <div class="title" />
            <table>
                <tbody>
                    <tr>
                        <td>
                            <label>
                                <input type="radio" value="67" name="option[13]"></input>
                                <span style="width:40%;">
                                    Blue Extra Large
                                </span>
                                <span style="width:20%;" />
                                <span style="width:10%;" />
                            </label>
  </td>
 </tr>

If I select a radio button and select add to cart, I get the error message that it's not been checked but if I do the following jquery, it displays the data from the radio fine

<pre>
$('input[type="radio"]').click(function(){
    if ($(this).is(':checked'))
    {
      alert($(this).val());
    }
  });
</pre>

Am I missing something basis here?</table></div></div></div>

There are 2 ways to do this properly:

1) Shortcodes e.g [col1], col2 [col4 last]

This would normally include an option in TinyMCE to easily add this

2) Templates – Creating page templates are ok for different types e.g. portfolio 1, portfolio 2 etc but not ideal for columns

1 is the better option for columns while #2 is better for types of displays but you will need to test each one and see which suits your theme.

Eurghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I wouldn’t touch Wix or any of the web builders with a long stick.

1) Get some hosting, in the UK I use vidahost (affiliate link).

2) Install WordPress

3) Install a free theme or one of the many premium themes available on themeforest.

You will have an awesome website you can do what you want with it and will cost you less than £50.
