This is a bit off topic, but could you please explain, or link some source that explains why it should be considered as ‘very bad practice’? (no sarcasm, really interested) I use it to generate the main.css file on the fly from a .less source file. The main.css file only gets re-generated if the original less file is modified, otherwise no action will be taken and main.css will be enqueued normally.

One important reason: The theme should stay untouched. The user should never alter the files from a theme or plugin if is developed by somebody else.

You say that this is not a problem, because nothing is lost, but I can say the opposite. Even if you modify just a simple stylesheet, this means you’ve modified everything. Why? I tell you. To understand it better, I’ll give you an example:

Suppose that a user use your theme, he loves it so much that decided to purchase another 3 licences for other 3 sites. Now that uses is going to use your theme on 4 sites, all these 4 sites share similar content so it makes sense to use the same theme. Also all these 4 sites are from one WordPress Multisite installation. Now, you see where is the problem? No? Ok, let’s continue then.
That user want to use your theme on all these 4 sites but on each site to have a different color scheme. That means that he would adjust the settings on each site from admin. Ifthe theme will save the generated CSS in its folder, then the user will not be able to have a different color scheme for each site because every time he adjust the settings for a site it will overide the generated CSS for other sites.

That’s why you should save the generated CSS in wp-uploads folder with a unique stylesheet name for each theme and website.

Cheers.

Love this contest and cant wait to grab some of the new directory themes that everyone creates. Spotfinder is easily the best I have seen to date. However, the ability to host 4000+ pins is not available.

From our findings, pins need to be processed/loaded on the server side, not from the browsers side.

I would say the winner of this is going to be whomever can accomplish this because many of us are trying to load 4000+ pins on our sites and it crashes on mobile and is extremely slow when filtering.

I have the same problem no pro map theme on the market… Spotfinder have lot of feature a looking nice, but its based on “google maps”. maybe it can be faster, but if we want a roboust “locator” with a million pin we ned openstreetmap or leaflet(based on openstreetmap). Its faster morenmore feature, no need to pay. (google maps have a daily 25.000 limit. Over you need business account and pay…) All the big geo/travel portals(foursquare,facebook) etc) using mapbox/leaflet what is based on openstreetmap…

So i wait for a new directory theme on themeforest like spotfinder, but with osm map…beacause with google maps no way to handle thousand or million pins…
Wow! First time I see OpenStreetMap. Thank you a lot for sharing this info. :)

Regarding OP, I would also like to create a directory theme, but I probably will not manage to finish it until the contest close.

If you’ve purchased a template, then it may be just HTML. Are you sure it’s a template and not a theme?

First what you should do is to unzip the file you’ve downloaded from TF and read the documentation. Next look in all files and just then ask for help because you probably won’t need it if the documentation covered most of the questions you may have.

Cheers. :)

Why ThemeCheck detects it? Do you save the CSS directly in theme? If so, then you don’t do it right because you must save any custom generated CSS in wp-uploads directory.
That’s the main CSS file for the theme, why should I put it outside theme folder?
I still don’t understand how do you use the “less.inc.php”. Can you exaplain what’s the use of it? If you’re using it to pre-process the CSS , then you should use a local software that offer more options. The one I use is PrePos and it’s free.

When I say that you should save the CSS in ‘wp-uploads’ I mean custom CSS, that you don’t want to be overided on a theme update. Also, it’s a very bad practice to generate dynamic files inside of ‘themes’ folder.

Please explain what’s the purpose of “less.inc.php”.

If you are looking for bloatware, go for one of them else, find a simpler theme from so many more available here on ThemeForest that just what do they should do, and does not include hundreds of useless features and resources.

I have nothing against these themes, I just think that a lot of options have a bad influence on performance and are hard to maintain.

Cheers.

Every WordPress theme should have a functional blog section. This is a requirement and your item will be rejected if you do not include this functionality. Also, by default the index.php must display the latest blog posts and this is also an requirement.

Thanks for your answer even though that’s not exactly what I wanted to hear :) Does anybody have any suggestion on how to fix this? That’s what the PHP less compiler throws out I have no idea how to affect the output in order to fix this warning…!
