If you want to save up on your development time, check out SMOF (Slightly Modded Options Framework).
The interface blends well with WordPress and it has some cool features like drag & drop slider, block manager, backup/restore etc, and possibly everything else you need for an admin options panel.
Some TF authors are already using it or currently building it inside their themes.
The template looks like it was designed with MS Paint.
Sorry to rain on your parade, but Chrome has some serious performance issues with CSS3 properties, particularly box-shadows and border radius.
Try running any jQuery slider plugin inside div’s that have some box shadows and you’ll see what I mean.
It’s great for general purpose browsing, but not entirely the king for CSS3 -rich web designs.
Care 2 share?
Hmm.. I’m afraid Phil might not be happy if I post it here. But he told me he’ll be updating the plugin to allow 2 instances of the plugin soon. http://codecanyon.net/item/authorhq-wordpress-plugin-for-marketplace-authors/discussion/889829
I have some ideas on how to make disabling the licence check more difficult. I will look into adding the feature to SMOF possibly in the nearest future so every theme author can use it.
I went ahead and looked into the codes (hope Phil don’t mind this), and it turns out you only require one line of code to disable license check.
When installing on my live server, I get this
I previously installed it on my local server for development & theme integration purposes. Now it has been disabled & uninstalled itself. So that leaves me unable to have a live installation of the plugin while at the same time having a development version of it on my local server.
What are your thoughts on this?
Also, is there any tutorial/plugin out there that would help me integrate same feature on my theme? Seems like an awesome feature, but could be improved more e.g. allow for at least two instances & detect if used on multisite etc.
Hey glad you found it. If you need any help with it just post it on Github, I’ll do my best to help.
