So just the theme ZIP file. Cause the PSD / PNG sources are the large ones. Thanks!
The question is simple: since the ZIP file containing all the deliverables of a theme can get quite large, do we have to reupload everything? For a simple bug fix, can’t I just upload a ZIP of that particular file or at least only upload the them?
Not sure how things get (re)packaged once they are uploaded. Sorry if this was answered before.
Actually “TF level” is going down the drain as we speak, if you ask me…
In my opinion Eduardo’s work is at least 3 classes above most of the design I’ve seen around here, so I honestly hope he finds a developer to bring his creations to life.
Unless we bring some more creative designs to ThemeForest and try to make it a competitive marketplace, the clones will overrun us!
You forgot to mention one thing: who will handle all the support and bug fixing? I imagine the developer, right?
Very nice, clean designs! There are times when I would rather handle just the coding, so drop me a message from my profile or from my website and maybe we can work something out. At least you’ll have my email and we could get in touch for other projects.
@ParkerAndKent: I second that!
well, in my latest theme I said I wont set tons of skins, I only had 1 and a very powerful skin maker included with it, what was the result, 40 sales only
The theme looks nice and clean and I would personally use it in my projects, but I don’t think the problem was the lack of skins.
More than 1500 people already bought Classica, so while your theme offers some interesting design elements and isn’t a reskin like others I’ve seen, it doesn’t differentiate itself enough from the original in terms of layout and functionality.
You entered a tough competition, it’s as simple as that. I know this because I suspect the same happened with my latest theme: too many successful magazine themes just before my release.
Back to the topic… I personally have faith that a “clean / 1 skin (ok, maybe 2) / decent amount of options and features” type of theme can gather >1k sales. You just have to find the right angle. And I’ve made it my mission this year to find that angle!
Here’s something I don’t get: with so many awesome websites out there, with so many inspiration galleries, with so many awesome Dribbble bits to nibble on… why would someone in their right mind rip-off another author’s work?
I’ve seen the same ideas recycled again and again, but I’ve never seen someone take an existing idea and actually make it better. Some authors seem to be too busy working on fancy colored admin panels with a gazillion options, rather than thinking about usability for a change! And I’m not bashing on authors who really innovated along the years, my gripe is with those who over complicate things for all of us, by adding unnecessary fluff.
Wanna know something? The idea for the WordPress theme I’m working on right now… I stole it. But I stole it like an artist!
