As a relatively experienced buyer we actually probably break the norm. We have hundreds of files but actually only have used less than 10 for client projects. We use a lot to see how code is achieved (without just viewing the source), to learn and create from some of the cleverness seen on here. We also run a government run training program for kids in development and let them choose a file (which we buy for them) and they get to edit and create.
As we all work in the industry and for some big brands we can’t really use templates but even the best of us have benefited from being involved here.
In terms of how we buy – almost all purchases are done with a project, idea or learning in mind with a few exceptions which will be impulse – mostly from the same authors over and over again due to a love and admiration for their work.
To authors wanting tips for sales – it totally depends on the buyer. The less experienced will inevitably be impressed by the all singing and all dancing style. The most experienced of us I believe prefer simple, functional and well/logically constructed files. The key is to make it as versatile and ultimately as “imaginable” (is that really a phrase!) as possible so a buyer can picture it with their own content and not become over whelmed with stuff going on.
It’s not really suited or good enough for here but you could easily find someone who could custom build it for you on here if that’s an option time and budget wise
Just realised you have no buyer badge so you will have to use the account which purchased the file
In your downloads page here select ” installable WordPress files only” option and try that zip folder
Potentially we could do it depending on time frames and design.
UK based, One TF author with multiple files, another agency side creative director, support the file – yes, Cost wise totally depends on the file in question and what the build is for e.,g. personal use or for future sales etc.

If you Google setting up Wordpress and your hosts name I am certain there will be easy instructions or a video online. Good luck
Needs much more to it but as a beginning the concept is nice
First off even for beginners there is a degree of expected knowledge. Each file or theme comes with documentation (in your downloads select All files and documentation) this will help you with the basics of setting up the theme and how it works.
It wil not tell you how to install WordPress on your domain though. TO do this depends slightly what hosting you have but the basic steps are:
- Create a database in your hosting admin (don’t download SQL)
- Download WordPress from WordPress.org and install the files where you want to have the website using FTP e.g. your root or public_html folder
- Go to your url and the WP walk through screen will be here where you need the info from setting up the database e.g. DB name, Password, Host etc.
Once this is done and installed then you can drop in your new theme (from this stage on the documentation should cover it), by using the WP dashboard or via FTP.
Again form this point on the documentation will show you the basics of configuring the theme – remember a WP theme does NOT come out looking like the demo as in a HTML template until you populate it with content or install dummy content if it is available with the download.
If you post here the name of your host I will link videos to each stage
