Sorry, I don’t have much time to investigate on this
If you can’t code it, why not use a plugin for your contact form then? Check out http://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/mini-guide-to-contact-form-7--wp-25086
What about $_POST[‘input_name’] ?
Try to check the Network tab in Chrome developer tool. You’ll have a hint on what could slowdown everything. Then investigate more on that.
I was having the same issue about having to move constantly WordPress install from local to remote and vice versa. Not helping you about your sass issue but maybe having a good working environment will help you work quicker in local.
You’ll need SSH access for this.
Here’s my workflow: MAMP on local (or XAMP if you are on windows I think), git for the theme or plugin I’m working on – pushed to bitbucket private repo, grunt for automated task (min css, js), a duplicate of my local wp install on my remote server (rsync really handy for this, quicker than ftp), wp db migrate to sync my local wp database with my remote one (no need for phpmyadmin, or sql import, BIG gain of time. Worth the money IMO).
And each time I commit some change to my project, I push it to bitbucket, and pull it from my remote server (ssh). If I made some change on the wordpress database (ie. added some posts, pages, menus, media, ...), I push the local database via wp db migrate to my remote server. Takes like 20min following your db/media size.
Moving and keeping everything sync is much easier and quicker like this. And that workflow have motivated me to work more, as I was avoiding the shitty part of the job… migration
You would be able to work on local much quick like this keeping your habits and the thing that’s already working for your sass.
If some of you have better workflow, I’ll be happy to heard. Always looking to avoid the boring task
Is it allowed in themeforest for minified css and jquery files?
I think it is, never got a message from reviewer about this.
Also, how to improve page speed in my wordpress theme? I’m not asking for using some other plugins, i want some tips about loading speed while developing a theme?
You can check this if you didn’t already: http://code.tutsplus.com/articles/tips-for-best-practices-in-wordpress-development--cms-20649
Then the w3 total cache plugin is really helpful for your demos. Cache, gzip, minify theme/plugin css/js and cdn will boost the hell out of it
You could use that system for development. And then combine and minify all the .css. Check out “grunt cssmin”, great for automatic compress.
What to do in that case? Should I rat him out to envato?
