This is actually pointless we are never going to agree. And we pointed out more times, that time spent on work in this case is irrelevant!

By the way, do you need a dev? Just asking, because i see a nice PSD ’s in your account but no HTML or WP…

I think no good designer shouldnt go for les then 50% and again DO NOT ! I SAY AGAIN DO NOT ! Calculate this by hourly work since if I calculate all thinking processes it would dwarf development time and then designer could the ones asking for more % :) Since the developer gets a psd design and the animation instructions etc. All you have to do is to put it together. With Uncle google at your side to help you. Now You See, doesnt that sound degrading?

Typical designer thinking. How about to code 10 thousands lines of code of mixed HTML /CSS/JS/PHP using all the knowledges and experience to make your design alive without going crazy? Then write docs and handle support requests and updates.

Why PSD costs 10$, HTML 15 $ and WP 40 $-50$ here?

I’ve used Foundation and it’s awesome. I’ll have to try out Bootstrap, but so far I’ve seen Foundation has more meat to offer.
yes I prefer foundation, but the question is, I can use here for create my templates and sell here? I think yes, I see a new contest here for bootstrap; so is legal?

Sure, many authors use these frameworks in their templates here. Their license allow it.

I agree that design is very complex and creative process. It takes a lot of nerves sometimes, but sometimes it goes very well and you can do a lot of great stuff in a few hours. But of course, to finish a project you need to work very hard.

In the other side, full process of creating a site or a theme consist of 4 main steps:

1) idea and concept

2) design

3) front-end coding

4) back-end coding

5) support and updates

The first and last steps are simplest, but important. The other three are long and require a lot of experience. Hardly you can find a person that can do both front-end and back-end development at a high level. I know what I’m talking about as I’m tried to do all steps together, but have no no big success because it is almost not possible for one person to do all these hard work alone, when there are a lot of people that concentrate on something one. So, my last word is your skills worth nothing if you can’t finish the project. Theme development consist of 3 steps, and you can’t throw out something and call yourself a genius and ask 50% only because you do magic called webdesign.

How it can become 50%-50% if designer do only design, and the coder need to:

1) make a HTML template (HTML, CSS , jQuery, responsive layout) – this is a lot of work and require a lot of experience; 2) make a WP theme (so much to do that i even will not list); 3) write documentation; 4) make support and updates.

Are you serious? Then find someone who will agree on that! Sometimes designers are really overestimate themselves. Especially because i see that only some of them try to be creative and do something with their own hands, not only use icons, photos and other graphics made by others.

[...] If you bought an 1-2 year old theme it can not be updated by the author to work with current WP version.
Why not?

Just because it is an author’s decision to stop update an item when sales become too low. Buyer need to check software version before purchase, to avoid problems.

we got an issue with a theme, we purchased it but are required to use a very old version of wordpress to run it. this is a security issue.

You can see the supported software versions on the item details page. If you bought an 1-2 year old theme it can not be updated by the author to work with current WP version.

But if theme is not work with the versions listed on the item details page, you can claim about an update or complaint to the envato support.

You can provide additional preview images. They must be JPGs no larger than 900×900px, and named in the order that you want them to appear using the following format: 01_preview1.jpg, 02_preview2.jpg, 03_closeup.jpg. Create a .zip folder containing your additional preview images.

But I think you can use any size, just try to keep filesize within reasonable limits.

Very vice design. My suggestion is to give more attention to details – “read more” buttons, borders, arrows and other small elements because some of them looks not finished, uncertain. For example:

- use image arrows instead of text » arrows, this is bad practice

- border between items in the footer can’t be the same color and weight as you used in the widget title
