I hope that in the near future the asset library will grow, so that we can use more of those beautiful items, like these icons, in our templates
I don’t know if this has been mentioned, but there’s no badge-flag for Europe
I bet it will be here in half an hour. It’s only 3:30, and my prediction was at 4pm. Australia is 8 hours ahead of the UK, and if the launch is at 0:00, then it will be 12-8 which is 4. SImples.

I’m wondering what’s the reasoning behind making some file types usable and others not.
I’ll give you the clearest example: you made a PSD website template, publish it on TF and start working on converting it to HTML or Wordpress. In the meantime some freakin’ fast coder buys your file on extended license, codes it and releases it before you.. You are screwed!
On the other hand GR backgrounds are permitted to be used in TF templates (via extended license) because you know… the background doesn’t make the website template… And this is why people make backgrounds or icons – the best way to make money with such items is sell them to someone making templates on extended license
Thanks, interesting perspectives. I’ve been online fulltime since 1998, designed hundreds of webpages and over 70 sites, using Dreamweaver for all my site designs…. not sure what you guys all design/code in? Yeah ok you’re hardcore “I design all my sites by hand in notepad.exe html” lol
Well thanks for letting me know, I appreciate it. I’m one of the more experienced internet entrepreneurs around… from what I know, most of us who code websites use DW as the main app. And yes it’s an html template, not wp theme, right re wp/joomla templates aren’t really modifiable in DW very well.
I need things to be modifiable in DW because I do a lot of custom flash coding, and using components from FD etc, plus my own css/tables that I use for making mods.
I guess I’ll have to keep buying my templates elsewhere, if the ones here don’t show up properly in DW. I spend 10k+/year on this kind of stuff.
You claim that you have been using DW for many years now, so you are the one who should know that the matter is not theme incompatibility with DW, but the other way round – DW incompatibility with CSS rules. Dreamweaver’s WISYWIG editor is extremely poor, especially when it comes to advanced CSS layouts.
I can assure you that most of TF templates have very good, standard compilant coding. We are not “hardcore” and we are not coding in notepad.exe, though we write code by hand, weather it is in DW or any other app.
If you are not planning to use tags anywhere else you could make use of Wordpress tagging system. Tag a post as sticky, than loop through the same query two times. For the first time use conditional statement to detect if post has tag “sticky”, if not than continue (ommit the post). Than re-loop, but this time ommit “sticky” posts and display only posts without “sticky” tag.
It’s just an idea, you know, try playing around with it
I’m currently working on new portfolio template and I’m considering making it completely single page and completely Wordpress. The problem is I have no idea how to handle this from PHP side – for example: how to generate appropriate navigation links with Wordpress (like domain.com/index.php#about ), or how to create query with all pages AND posts ever added?
How would you do it? Any ideas?
