Being developer makes your day shorter :P when you work for somebody a day lasts for eternity and when you work for yourself evening comes so fast and you always wanted to do much more that day :) But it is the best job in the world :)

@pixel-industry agree with you :)

Exactly. I always feel like the day is too short.

kurulumun – welcome back. :D

thanks. can you help me?... i need help for this rejected!

demo: http://theme.pooyaa.com/demos/?theme=Nafis

1st of all: My browser: Chrome latest, OS: Windows 7

  • The header does not render the content as expected. http://awesomescreenshot.com/0fb2iyzla8 If I scoll down and then up this section changes the bg to something else, again, but never shows the full image.
  • Can you read this text? Again seems to be a bug: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0fc2iz0caa
  • Other sections have too much white space and for example “WE ARE NAFIS”, “WE ARE GOOD AT” is nothing more than an alignment change, also this section doesn’t provide nothing special, is just a bad looking list with too much space between items.
  • I personally don’t like so called “on scroll animations”, but they can affer a good feeling when browsing a website only if they were used in the right way. In your template I have the impression that my browser is IE and all these anim. come too late on the view screen.
  • I said and will say to everybody, don’t override default browser behavior and here I’m talking about scrollbar. I, and for sure not only me, don’t like these fancy effects when I scroll down. Most of the users have custom setings for mouse scroll and their computer is responsive for how much content it should scroll on a mouse wheel rotation, here you break this rule.
  • The template is loading slow. Too much useless jquery plugins which can be replaced by a few lines of pure JS. Also too much CSS for a such simple template.
  • If by “unique”, you mean all these CSS animations and different header styles, then you think wrong. These header styles should have a low priority and the hight priority should be reserved for content. Yes, the content, because when somebody will buy your template, it will use to display useful information to users not header/animations demonstrations.
  • Optimize images. You have 7 images in your CSS that weighs 1663.9K. Ugh, this can be reduced a lot if using the right tool. For ex: PNG Optimizer: http://psydk.org/PngOptimizer
  • 15 javascript files? Is that OK? NO. Some of them are totally useless and as I said can be replaced by a few js lines. Always, before you include a javascript code in your template/theme, think twice if you really need it.
  • 23 CSS files. Cmon, I’ll say nothing… you can refer to prev point.

I hope you find my answer friendly and useful. Good luck.

Remove the iframe. Add this in the header of your template.
<script>if ( top !== self ) top.location.replace( self.location.href );</script>

If you can create good, qualitative designs in Photoshop, that doesn’t means you’ll be able to create the same quality in WP. Probably you’ll learn some new things and start copy, paste code everywhere you need it, check it and if it looks as expected then you’ll think is that is ok. And, in the end you’ll be able to create a WP theme. But ask yourself about quality. This is a question that, unfortunately, a lot of theme developers don’t care about it.

Now to direct you in the right direction here’s is what you must learn before you go for WP:
  1. Learn HTML – make sure you know everything about it. How it works, what is allowed and what is not, tags type, attributes, SEO HTML structure, etc.
  2. Learn CSS – CSS is very important, and even if it looks simple, is not as easy to write good CSS code.
  3. Javascript(&jQuery) – You don’t have to learn it, just make sure to read something about it when you have free time.
  4. Create at least one full HTML template. The best is to prepare it for Themeforest and make it available for sale.
  5. Now you can learn PHP – You should learn the basics. PHP built-in functions, variables, arrays, constants, loops, how to create your own functions, how to make the code reusable, how to include it and what is the best method for different cases, etc.
  6. Undestand WP Codex, make use of functions available there.
  7. Start your own WP theme but always try to use the best practices. If you are unsure about a piece of code, open google and learn from others how to do it better.

This is how I see you a good WP Developer.

Good luck.
:) Andrei.

Yes, you shouldn’t have any problems with that, only if you’re not modifying the_content(), of course. :)

You must sanitize only your custom functions, arrays and other data. Most of the built-in WP functions are sanitized, so don’t worry about them.

For example:
the_title(); //WP function, nothing more required
esc_html( my_custom_fn() ); //Custom function, sanitize it because we don't really know what it contains.esc_html() is just an example
