You can argue whether Bootstrap is good or bad, but the reason it’s popular is that it’s useful, plain and simple
Agree. I use it and like it but I would never use it’s buttons and tab styling etc. just grid, responsive feature and some of js. I used Foundation too but it requires more work with adding classes for mobile, Bootstrap needs only one class and it is responsive already. I don’t have experience with other frameworks and also why bother with less known frameworks when mainstream sells.
Depending on how fast you learn you will need 3 to 5 years to learn all that and have enough experience to build HTML templates and WordPress themes that you can then sell.
It can be faster. For example I started to learn html about one year ago and got first template approved about 8 months after that. Recently I started to learn php and make Wordpress framework and hope will know enough to be able to convert html to Wordpress for 6 months from now, if I have enough time to learn.
English is important for learning, because all good and fresh tutorials are in English.
I got this: “Additionally, we have some extra feedback for you:
please provide details item description. After editing, click save, resubmit.
This Ecwid template should look like its a natural part of the site/template
This Ecwid template must have custom images.
Please resubmit to Site Template category.”
What are custom images in ECWID template?
Only custom ecwid images that I noticed are vegetables when editing ecwid widget. Should I left it in my preview?
Check and remove media queries from all css files if there are separated files for slider etc. Also try to put all layout into div with 1024px fixed width.
Just to make it clear that I’m looking for partnership and profit share here on Themeforest with developer who would like to develop my template in Drupal/Joomla.
Messing up with coding for too long can kill your design abilities. If you want to bring it back just forget about coding limitations and play in Photoshop. So my answer is yes, design can be learned to some degree if you have enough time for that.
On the other hand it’s not easy doing designing and programming all by yourself and achieve TF standards for both.
I had similar situation couple of times, once I helped with little customization and wasn’t even check if he bought my template ( I was new author ). After that he write to me again and asking another question. This time I asked him to write to me through TF so I could check if he bought template. But he refused with story that I already helped him last time so that is the proof that he bought template. When I pointed that last time I didn’t even check if he did it he started to be rude. Of course he didn’t get the answer.
Once I get a question about “how” something in template can be changed, he said that he already “tried” it but nothing. He also said that he wants to buy my template. Funny.
I’m invited too. Thanks.
I want my template:http://themeforest.net/item/light-responsive-mobile-retina-ready-template/3247927
to be done in Joomla and/or Drupal cms.
If someone is interested in partnership contact me through my profile page.
One question about html ecwid templates. Should these templates have some kind of functions that are achieved by “ecwid css files” and is there any plugin or something for that? Or it can be just plain html/css template without real functionality (that can be added later in cms)?
