Off the top of my head, here are a few popular sliders.
Nivo slider, Coin slider, Cycle jquery slider (required a bit more work, but is far more dynamic), Cu3er, Piecemaker.
I’d say those are the most popular ones going around at the moment, but there are many less known, but fantastic ones floating around.
There’s also a few great premium ones on Codecanyon as well.
Psd has high standards and low sales, but sort of guarantees your acceptance into html and wordpress if the code quality is equally high.
Html is where many authors start off.
Wordpress is where the money is at, especially if you have a successful theme.
Magento has much higher prices so I’d imagine it’s quite nice money wise if you get a good theme on the go, but I don’t know what sort of production time we are talking so can’t really comment here.
I write my documentation in google docs, insert page breaks after sections, and export it as a pdf to be included with the html theme.
I do sort of follow the sections layed out in the basic documentation.
I go; Introduction, Included Files, Html Structure, Css Structure, Jquery Structure, and then move on to seperate things. In the documentation im writing this evening my nine sections are
Included Files Html Structure Css Structure Jquery Structure Piecemaker Nivo Slider Twitter Updates Ajax Contact Form Further Questions
With html themes, I don’t include a license. I thought that was just wordpress you had to do that for because of the GPL .
It looks great, don’t get me wrong, but it’s really minimalistic and a fairly similar theme went on sale only a month or so ago.
The theme was minimal like this, but offered a plethora of options and set-ups the user you could use giving them 100’s of layout choices. It still got rejected 3 or 4 times before it was improved slightly aesthetically to be accepted.
3 months ago, this theme may have been fine, but 3 months is a long time. I’m sorry you got ill, but this isn’t your fault, or the reviewers. At the time, you were given an honest answer. Things have changed in the last 3 months, and it’s not like you’ve got a fantastic theme that can’t be improved. There’s lots of potential there.
Yeah I know, but before Jeffrey left he said he was considering bringing in a proper php category because site templates was primarily for html themes.
I personally see no problem with it, of the few that I remember though, its been a php version alongside html. In the end, it’s all down to what the buyer wants. Adding a php version alongside your html is a bonus and certainly isn’t going to limit you. I just think that if you are going to sell just an html version, you need to go the full hog, and do something like the OXYLUS guys are with a custom CMS .
Just my thoughts anyway.
You should try delegate instead of hover, apparently its more efficient =)
Chris Coyier as always with great examples that I’m sure will help you coupled with der’s points of your selectors.
For html, you mainly use php for the contact form. Includes aren’t really used. I know a few authors provide a php included version alongside their straight html version for free, but currently there isn’t a php category.
Your always best actually contacting the plugin author on this than speculating with more people with the same information as you. However, the free lite version says its released under GPL which means it can be used I believe.
I’d still email the author to check though.
As far as I know, you can’t cover up a bunch of elements with a transparent overlay, and still be able to interact with them, because this new div is on top. You can’t position it behind, because you lose the effect but can now click. I think it’s a one or the other thing, unless someone can come up with a genius solution =)
Its fair enough Dany. When I saw it, I hadn’t noticed that the content layout was exactly the same as well. I’d thought it had at least been moved.
