4 years later, a man walks into a bar… a bit late to the party don’t you think?

Hey Bojs,

As long as you respect the license under which the plugins are distributed, and if you assign all functionality to a plugin, you should be fine. If we’re talking about WordPress.org plugins, those are released under the GPL. Make sure you respect that license in your theme/plugins and it’s okay :)

As outlined by the WordPress mantra: Themes are for Presentation, Plugins are for functionality.

Hey UXBarn,

It’s my primary objective from now on to steer our community of authors on doing things the WordPress way. Simpler & Easier. Both for Authors and Customers. I can only encourage an author when he wants to build a clean WordPress theme.

Keep at it and you’ll have it accepted.

Paul

Maybe it’s something that you’re missing momentarily, as it’s really easy, but you need to replace $term with your variable name which contains the parent taxonomy…

Hey UXBarn,

IGNORE all the previous advice from above. Without wanting to sound too harsh, you guys are a bit light in the head.

A parallax effect doesn’t ever get you accepted, or a slider.

To believe that, you might have been watching too much of the top sellers lately.

You don’t need more features. You need a good and unique design. Somehow today it looks like it’s a bit generic, not premium-feel like. As Siddharth used to say: go with a fine-toothed comb over your design. Find the inconsistencies.

Try to find a typographic combination which expresses more feelings of calmness, as the template’s name suggests. I think the weight of the design is too much on the left side and it doesn’t feel balanced in that terms. The menu is not in a very favorable position. It doesn’t stand out as a menu as it should, which means that it’s not intuitive enough to see the menu, and that means you’re putting the user to work ( a no no). I don’t like the added weight on the current page link, either, but probably that’s just personal taste.

These are just a some of my ideas regarding your design. It has potential, work on it, you can do it!

I think it’s just action has yet to be taken. Sometimes things are slow … deadly slow.

You can sell anything you want for your themes or any other products on your own website. It’s not allowed to be advertised on the item page, though.
