its a zip file that i download, iève done alot of websites and i downloaded what i purchased, should all be in one , as it is in a zip file.

But you’re not just downloading the theme itself – you’re also downloading license information, documentation, maybe PSDs, etc. It’s not asking much for you extract the download file to find the theme zip inside.

I did try to find the answer myself before opening this but couldn’t find anything concrete so forgive me for opening up an old discussion.

As far as I’m aware – all code that is plugin territory should now be shipped as so, correct? Custom post-types, shortcodes, etc.

But there are new themes, popular themes, being accepted today that still ship with post-types and shortcodes baked right in.. which obviously flag up errors in theme check.. but they are being accepted.

I ask because I’m involved with a project at the moment in which the theme technically has shortcodes registered inside (custom add-ons for the visual composer plugin) so the theme check tells us there are errors..

Are we alright to leave these theme check messages? What’s the crack?

Hi all,

I’m looking to take on a pair of helping hands to work with me on a new theme, and possibly a couple of simple plugins.

If this is you..

1. Building a theme is nothing new to you, you can probably do it in your sleep.
2. Writing smart & secure code for theme-check is nothing new to you.
3. You know all the ins-and-outs of the Theme Customizer & can also work with other options systems.
4. You can write custom widgets & shortcodes.
5. You’re comfortable with taking on my existing codebase and working with that as a starting point. (although you can re-write as you see fit, of course)
6. Solid understanding of visual design.
7. * Advanced with jQuery. You know how to use plugins but you can also write custom bits & pieces (on-scroll header animations, hovers animations, responsive menus, etc.)
8. You know all the ins-and-outs of supporting WooCommerce in the theme. (overwriting templates, working with action filters, etc.)
- * You know how to smooth out any compatibility issues across browsers.
- Bonus if you know how to code a plugin.
- Bonus if you’ve worked with GitHub & can push your work to a repo.

..and you’re interested in building my new design with me, then I’d love to hear from you. :)

Please include as much information about yourself and your experience as you can. Code examples are a must.

You can email me from my profile page and from there we’ll chat more with Skype.

Cheers,
Paul

I definitely feel like it’s taking FAR too long for themes to move through the queue these days. We all appreciate the process and the points regarding exposure – but 7/8 days before it even gets a look-in? And then another 3 days on top of that when you’ve got a soft-rejection fix to make? It’s just too long.

Hi all,

Posted over on wp.org but no luck so far. Shouldn’t be too difficult but can’t seem to get the results with the logic I’ve tried putting together.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi all,

I know there’s a few others using Ticksy to support themes – I was wondering if anybody else was running into issues with purchase codes?

The first complaints I had coming in were that Ticksy was still requiring my buyers to provide their codes after already doing so, so I had to change my settings to make verification optional.. the guys at Ticksy tweeted me back to let me know this was solved a couple of days ago so I made verification a requirement again..

Now I’m being told that Ticksy isn’t even providing a field for entering my buyer’s code? What is going on with this service?

Cheers,
Paul

Cheers for the replies, guys.

I did intend for some good old WP image cropping – I just can’t wrap my head around the auto-height cropping (probably based on the width for best results) while making sure the two together always came to the container’s height.
