I feel like bad luck Brian.. unlol..
I just checked some of the Ripoff Report complaints and I bet that 90% of them are because:
- buyer never installed a WP theme before
- didn’t read the documentation
- they dropped the mouse at the first “difficulty” like installing a plugin and screamed FRAUD instantly
Even most of them couldn’t write a single sentence without spelling mistakes.
As an author I experience on my own skin that TF reviewers are testing themes really hard and if they wouldn’t function as advertised they wouldn’t make it to the frontpage.
Still I don’t want to confute your opinion, I’m sorry if you had such an experience with authors.
Hello and thanks guys! It makes more sense now. It modified DB like Revslider.
I already opened a support ticket BTW.
I submitted my WP theme which has a built-in slider. The theme creates a table for the slides in the database. I just got rejected with this:
Ensure that none of your scripts alter the database. This includes adding or altering database fields, and creating new tables.
But the submission requirement doesn’t say that I can’t create table.
The database shouldn’t be accessed or modified directly. If there is a defined function that can get the data you need, that must be used instead. Use $wpdb and its methods to interface with the database instead of rolling your own.
Note: I use $wpdb and dbDelta functions only.
I still hope that one day WordPress core will include a built-in visual builder to create basic things like columns or pullqoutes at least.
