Thanks for the replies fellas.
Seems WP is the way to go… Feels strange being a Tumblr author, but hey!
I am just wondering how you folks handle your Theme Forest customers signing up to your own private support forums?
I noticed a few saying sign up with a private key, but I am unsure how to get this data from Themeforest and using it as a required key for the sign up process.
Any advice would be appreciated.
kailoon saidSublime Text 2 rules – in my opinion of course;)
I move from Textmate – Coda – Sublime Text 2. Period.
+1 for Sublime. Its a well versed editor, that is always updated, easy to customise, and works on both mac / win / linux.
I kinda feel like Coda 2 is a little late to the party. Most the features (Excluding air preview) are already available in most other editors.
Kinda odd to hear friends saying they were buying Coda 2, before even trying it.
Like the guys said above, a design can be sold as HTML and a WP theme. It’s called ‘Double Dipping’ and its encouraged: http://notes.envato.com/general/make-more-money-by-double-dippin/
Overall I really like it, and fingers crossed it will do well on TF. I know TF are starting to limit minimal / light designs, but I think this has enough character to get accepted.
A few gripes:
The buttons – Are we flat or 3D? Personally, I would prefer to see them flat and a different colour on hover.
The icons used on the ‘For both deskop and mobile’ – The grey is almost too faint, and creates a void.
The social icons in the footer, I would prefer to see in a 3×2 formation, the same height as the last tweet. Again, I presume you never know the tweet height, so maybe a pain to do
Apart from that, I really like it. Clean, light, but the highlight of blue just pulls it together…
Oh and a fixed header, have you been looking at my screen?
From my few weeks of being a theme author, I agree with @OrmanClarke with the points he has raised. Here are a few points I would raise:
- Input on price. I have absolutely no control or input on how much a theme is sold for. Elite or not, I would hope, if a theme is excepted, I would be allowed to discuss or challenge the price of a theme. I appreciate the little experience I have in selling theme or judging price points, but some conversation would be useful
- Sales analytics. As mentioned, at the moment I have no idea where my conversions are coming from, or whether my marketing is working.
- An open rating system. Would be great to see who rated the theme, and to see their written feedback, rather than scrolling through the comments
I have to say, so far, I am having a really good, enjoyable time here. I have been well looked after by @Siddharth and had nice feedback from other members. The comments above are based on what I have experienced so far, and hopefully would lead to happier and more successful authors.
I also note, that I may have gone off topic! If this needs moving to another forum, please let me know!
