Here’s a great plugin to bundle all your theme functionalities like CPT, taxonomies, metaboxes, shortcodes and widgets, thought I’d share.

Are you kidding? I don’t want to offend you, but this is complete copy of my template: http://vasterad.com/themes/?theme=centum

Does that mean your template is not good enough for TF :D

Ahh Brainstorm, with Content Composer v1, when it took 20 mins to add a simple option to a module.

Then Content Composer v2 came later on, much more flexible, few seconds to add a new option.

Then i started working on Content Composer v3, front-end, was almost done with the most important part and then boom, i made the most idiotic move ever, i reinstalled my computer and forgot to make a backup, still don’t understand how that happened. Didn’t have the strength to start over.

About the advertising, nobody reads, everybody scans. They take a quick look and of to the next one. So you need to grab their attention and make them check out the video.

It’s useful, for such a feature front-end is 100 times better then back-end.

And make a plugin soon and publish it on CodeCanyon, i didn’t and that was a HUGE mistake.

Seing how positive you are about front-end admin, I am sure you’ll find the strength to do it again one day, I would have love to see how it would have work…

I am rubbish at advertising but I might do a nice demo video for the next one.

I’m far from creating plugins though and like fillerspace I think it could affect the sales but on the other hand the more people using it the better…

That front-end admin of yours is pretty darn good if you ask me. But you failed to advertise it properly and the views on the demonstration video proves that.

I remember that i checked out the demo when the theme came out, but i definitely did not see that feature.

And it doesn’t look like it’s hard to use. You have all the functionality ready now, make another theme, but this time advertise the feature properly. Put the video on the homepage, at the top of the content, don’t let the visitors miss it.

Or make something like a landing page or whatever it’s called, 1 row 2 columns, on left the video demonstration on right the link to the actual demo.

Thanks a lot WPScientist, I appreciate feedback coming from you. It is actually because of you that I wanted a content composer, I once bought brainstorm to see how it was working and started build mine to completely stop when I was almost finish to create the front-end admin… You’re a legend for that :P

Talking about advertising, you might be right but I thought people would read and look at the item description, I have wrote a ton about it, was it not enough?

Well, I was working on a new theme when I realise that it might not be as useful because people need to learn again and don’t you think that not being able to use WP core function to create pages is not a big deal? even if I think it is for the best…

What is your opinion (buyers and authors) regarding themes feature for adding content, what is or would be for you the best way to easily create content.

My point of view was that front-end admin would be the best features to easily adding content, create posts/pages, change styling and options, that is why I have created one theme with this feature. Now I have realised that it would required the users to learn how to use my admin as using the WP core would not work anymore and I am not talking about WP install that already have content…

Now, after spending months creating it… I see that page builder would be the best choice although it still require the user to know how to use it even if it is way more simpler.

Maybe a simple shortcode generator is the way to go, what do you guys think?

Just got rejected today… That’s strange if they accept yours WPExplorer, good for you if they do :) Any staff reply appreciated here
On a side note. What makes you think that it’s exactly that piece of code that got your theme rejected ? Maybe you’ve used a bad practice more than once ? Are you sure it’s about that function alone ?

Here is the reviewer note:

2. This autop clean up function is not allowed either: http://d.pr/i/AjHB/58TvAdBd

very bad thing that I heard now, I was hopeful that this way can be accepted, then how others do it?
This seems to be the solution http://www.viper007bond.com/2009/11/22/wordpress-code-earlier-shortcodes/
I was saw this previously, it will be good at least, if it can be accepted.

I bet it will, this is from the reviewer… He gave me this solution after being soft rejected :)
