I’m getting really pissed off because of this whole shortcode – autop thing. This bug is there since years and WP still couldn’t solve this problem. Why?
I also think that TinyMCE must go. What WP need is a correct page builder and a default shortcode set which makes it easy for people to build columned layouts and basic things like buttons, place icons, pullquotes, etc. Most clients doesn’t know any HTML code and with TinyMCE you can’t really customize your site without HTML and CSS knowledge.
I think we should think of it like a normal plugin. There must be a general styling included in the plugin, so if you use it in any other theme, it should look good.
AND in your theme’s stylesheet you can add some extra stylings to make plugin’s layout more compatible with your current theme’s design.
You should submit it into PSD template category. That’s the hardest category to get into.
Chances are high that if your PSD design will be approved, your WP theme will be too. Not 100% guaranteed, but you have a better chance.
Theme approval will also highly depend on code quality.
bravewhale: I couldn’t agree with you more. I don’t like this kind of theme options either. They stand out too much from WordPress admin design. I always try to keep design consistency in my theme options. I use WP admin’s default checkbox, select design, etc.
From now on if you stop giving free support for even an hour, a new thread will be opened here complaining that yet another ELITE author doesn’t provide support! Congrats!
Is it just me or the Page Template field disappeared from Page Attributes box when editing a page?
Just for the record to make things clear…
I received an official response: you can’t create a new theme/template with a title that already exists. Authors in question have been contacted to rename their items.
For designthemes and BuddhaThemes: I’m sorry for the inconveniences, but I believe you wouldn’t be happy either in the same situation.
