Obviously is a good practice to build themes that don’t rely too much on plugins, try to create your code for as many components as you can… also because not all the plugins out there are really well made and updated.

I wouldn’t agree with that.

For example, lot of theme authors are including SEO options in their theme framework/options panel. Imo, that’s a bad practice. Why so? Let’s say I’m a blogger and already have my WordPress website running for a few years. And now I decide to change the lookandfeel of my site, so I buy fully packed premium WordPress theme. I install it, do all the setting up stuff (SEO stuff, in our case) and happily use my precious new theme. After a while, I decide to get a new theme.. Oh crap. I have to set up all those ‘premium’ options.. again. And again. Anyone likes that?

So, in conclusion, yeah, options are cool, but imo they should only help user to get their site some kind of different from the original themes (design perspective). And to avoid my given situation, I would prefer to set up, let’s say, yoast SEO pack and use it independently from what theme I choose. That way, I can switch themes like crazy, but my SEO options stays the same. Always.

I usually avoid people that tells me how easy or fast is something they ask me to do, especially when they look for an expert and not just for free help :)
+1, people who don’t know how to change their stuff themselves should not judge about the amount of work to be done. If one knows it’s an easy 10 minutes job one obviously knows what to do – so why need someone to do it for them? I consider this arrogant.

+10000 I couldn’t count all the times I’ve said those words myself.

WP->HTML should be pretty simple. Just open up your page, and press ctrl+s – you’ll get your page saved as html. You might also need to save css and image files, but that not be an issue.. Issue is that if you’re going to have a website with no CMS (WordPress), you’ll have to manage sites content yourself, meaning that you’ll have to download->edit->upload html files everytime you want to change something ;)

Imo, just code it. PSD category has very high standarts and it is really hard to get accepted. But, as I’ve said – just code it. Make a WordPress theme, and it should be accepted with few adjustments.

Personaly, ? don’t like that blue section. It could use some other gradient or even a noise. Also, social icons in footers stands out too much, imo.

Add ‘Static HTML : iframe tabs’ app to your page. It has non-fan and fan-only content support.

Thanks for a quick response and great resource, Ivor!

ATM I ’m coding my first template for ThemeForest. The thing is that I’m used to style CSS like this:
.selector {xx: a; yy: b;}
So the question is.. Is that OK? Or should I style CSS like this:
.selector {
   xx: a;
   yy: b;
}
before submiting my template?
