Well, that’s just something i would do after receiving such review. I’d create a separate template file for my one-page layout and tell buyers to “use a static page” with that template as their homepage. There are probably some more creative ways to approach this problem, perhaps someone else can come up with a better solution.
Don’t get discouraged, first of all. It’s rather normal to have your items rejected several times before they are approved.
To answer your question, you should create a regular index.php that will display latest posts, just as it’s stated in the above description. Include all custom layouts in separate template files. Also, read the codex links provided by your reviewer.
This thread may be more useful than the author originally thought.
Phew. Just submitted an HTML template after three weeks of work. Although rejection is always an option, i’m relieved. 4pm, beer time.
Oh, thanks. Pitty.
Well, i’m not so sure about it. The item page on TF serves as a sales page, and generally this is where the whole process of selling and purchasing takes place. What if someone visits the live preview site without knowing about the actual item? Plus, we are not selling the images with the templates, they are for “preview” purposes only.
If it helps anyone.. i used to get all sorts of errors while uploading files when i had two or more browser windows open on the same upload file page. Make sure you only have one active instance at a time.
All right, if you haven’t heard yet Getty Images released 40 million stock photos to the public:http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-03/06/getty-images-embed
They can be used for non-commercial purposes, but this is where it gets a wee cloudy for me. Can we embed these images in item previews for HTML templates, WordPress themes, etc.? Our live previews are not “commercial” per se and often they do not contain any direct links to the item page here on ThemeForest. It would be great to hear from Envato staff and other authors.
