ChapterThemes saidThanks again for your help ChapterThemes,that’s what i wanted to hear. Actually i have 2 more questions and i’m out : 1. Will Themeforest still accept in the future ,themes based on bootstrap 2.3.2 ? ( a staff answer would be great ). 2. Can we use bootstrap 3 without using LESS ?
You supply the bootstrap version with your theme. So as long as people don’t manually update that bootstrap css file than everything keeps working. Even if there’s a newer bootstrap available. It then is up to you to update to newest bootstrap, or not.
Many thanks to everyone for your answers/opinions.
Venmond saidGood tip, but that’s not what he asked
My recommendeation is it’s better to start learning boostrap 3, bootstrap 2.3.2 is the final version of bootstrap 2 version and will not be supported again with the twitter bootstrap theme for future updates.
Even so,good tip indeed ,but as i said before i find very difficult the version 3rd comparing to 2 .So if 2.3.2 its the final version ,lets say i will launch now a theme based on 2.3.2 ,does that mean that after a wile all the exiting themes including mine will no longer be functional because they have decided to launch the 3rd ? if i knew that from the start i’d never spent so much time trying to learn the 2nd version of bootstrap.
Hi guys ! Recently i started playing with Bootstrap ( 2.3.2 version,witch i like better then 3 ,more simple to use in my opinion ) .So as i use it for my new theme that i intend to sell it here, i have a dilemma: What is the best method in customizing Bootstrap, directly or create another 2 different files ( ex: custom_bootstrap.css and custom_bootstrap_responsive.css ) ? Probably many of you will say that the method with custom files is better, but why should i still load the main file if i intend to customize most of the appearance code?
@TommusRhodus : I agree with you, the responsive layout also its one of the reasons that i don’t like creating my site in psd format first. On the other hand, i think the Kriesi’s method is more comfortable
you wont believe me, i just opened forums to ask this question. After seeing Adi’s adaptive wordpress theme developement tutorial in tutsplus.com. I understand the utility of Photoshop but using it every time you want to create a new theme ,in my opinion is like creating that theme twice and not everyone has a rich imagination to create something nice. Plus i prefer layered pngs made with Fireworks when it comes to create some images/icons i need. I’m asking all these because i see more and more often on many themes, in the section “themeforest files icluded: Layered PSD files” .
Hi guys ! Since i did not found what i was looking for by searching on google,i’m asking you directly: Is it really necessary to build first a psd template for your new theme? Is not much more simple to start create your css style directly, inspired or not by other websites or any other design you want to? For example, building a theme for a forum software i find to be a really waste of time by creating first the psd template , not to mention the difficulty creating it .So how many of you out there are using the PSD template method ? Thank you.
actually, i have rebuilt my own framwork theme based on wordpress’s default themes since the second one (going to release this feb).i recommend you to use those ones because all plugins are built and compatible to them.
Is not so clear to me..so your advice is to start building my own framework,based on the default wp themes?
hi guys, i’m also new in the developing world..i have some skills in css and html but newbie in php.. so i would like to start selling themes,but don’t know where to start:
should i start learning php ( which i hate it a lot ) or should i use a framework? Using a framework will not affect me somehow as a developer? do tf accept this type of developers here? thank you
