Clients need to have reason to buy “normal themes”
That’s a great point…if I am a restaurant who just needs a theme with a home, about, map, gallery, and a few menu pages, I should be steered toward a niche theme targeting restaurants (http://themeforest.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=restaurant). Themes there are mostly $45 with a few priced at $40 and $55. If I do what most people do and go directly to the popular files list, I see mostly multipurpose themes that are overkill for what I need, but they are only $10 more and you get an impressive list of features like sliders, shortcodes, page builders, ecommerce, buddypress, and bundled plugins.For an author, it makes sense to pack everything including the kitchen sink into a multipurpose theme and hope to hit the popular files list. It is much better than languishing in an unseen niche category with low sales. If you increased the prices on these multipurpose themes (e.g. start at $45 add $10 for ecommerce, $10 for page builder, $5 for buddypress, $2 for each bundled plugin, etc.), you would see $80-$100 for a multipurpose everything under the sun theme vs $45 for a niche theme. That would drive some people to just purchase a niche theme if that’s all they need.
+1 Multi-purpose theme prices should go up in order to niche + simple themes to survive in long run.
Thanks for reply. I think now, during development i’ll use PHP + HTML (to avoid duplication) as in sublime text there is no HTML templating system. However, before submitting the file i’ll convert it to HTML..
I’m currently working on a website template. Basically template is coded in HTML but i’m using PHP language in it to avoid duplication of many code blocks (e.g.
Now my question is can i submit this template as it is in HTML category for sale here?
Seems there is no such extension available yet. I’ll have to use php include function uptil then, unless one is available.
Thanks for your reply BTW.
One thing i like about dreamweaver was its template (.dwt files) functionality, in which if we create any .html file from such template, any changing afterwards in those templates would also be applicable in all such .html files.
I wanted to know if there is any such functionality/extension available for sublime text editor?
Every day i archive my working project files and save it in DropBox.
