The issue described in the video is that the zip you download from ThemeForest includes files apart from just the theme. For example, PSDs and Help files. The “theme” itself is contained inside that zip file.

So the first step is to unzip the file you downloaded. Check out what’s inside. Usually there are detailed instructions on what you need to do to upload and install the theme. Sometimes, there is a zip inside the zip that is specifically intended to be uploaded through the WP theme installer. Other times the theme is just in a folder. In this case, you can upload the theme via FTP , or zip it yourself and upload it that way.

Remember, the style.css file will need to be in the folder that you upload to wp-content/themes (whether it is zipped or not).

If that doesn’t help, I’d recommend telling us what you’ve done so far, and posting a list of the contents (or a screenshot) of your unzipped file.

Hope that helps,

Chris

I thought this feature would be useful especially for a theme framework used primarily by developpers

Perhaps :) Personally, as a developer, I really dislike the WP code editor (like duotive mentioned). I would rather develop in my IDE of choice than use the in-browser editor. But maybe that’s just me :)

I don’t think that’s a good idea. It’s better to have just a small area where people can put additional javascript code, instead of having them edit the whole thing in the admin. And only the advanced guys would want to edit the whole thing, they’d already know where to find and edit it in the filesystem.

I think that’s a good point. And making access to the code easier for those who don’t know what they’re doing may be asking for trouble. I think in many cases, if a user can’t use FTP , they probably shouldn’t be messing with the JS :( You might create more headaches than you solve.

On the other hand, if you built a real in-browser text editor (not just a textarea like the built-in WP code editor), with syntax highlighting, etc, that might have some real value.

In any event, it’d probably be better to write the code to be extensible and then allow users to make modifications without editing the core (like bfintal said, small areas with additional JS is probably a better solution).

Try

http://imakewebthings.github.com/jquery-waypoints/

Thanks, I’m actually using Waypoints (it’s excellent) as a component in the plugin (already completed), but looking for a good name to describe this specific application of it :)

Just a quick suggestion – I might remove the trailing square bracket from this line:

if (stripos($post->post_content, '[shortcodeName]')) {

Otherwise, you won’t find any shortcodes that have attributes set. e.g., I don’t think that will match

[shortcode att1="one" att2="two"]

This might be better:

if (stripos($post->post_content, '[shortcodeName')) {

Harvest is amazing. Not sure if it does absolutely everything you want, but it’s definitely worth a look http://www.getharvest.com/

Also, it’s free for a up to two clients I think, so you can try it out.

haha yeah I’m having trouble too. Currently I’m calling it “Scroll Checkpoint” (you add checkpoints to the content, and when you scroll past them a dialog is triggered). I think this name makes sense once you know what it does, but the name doesn’t necessarily express the functionality clearly or precisely.

And my one-line description of it, “Animated Call to Action Dialogs on User Scroll”, which I think expresses the concept a bit better, is probably the worst product name ever :P

Hey guys, I’m trying to figure out if there is an official name for the sliding box/dialog that appears when a user scrolls to the end of a page (or past a certain point). For example, the NY Times does this: http://nyti.ms/g0TGJf (scroll to the end and look in the bottom right corner).

It’s basically used to grab a user’s attention and present a call to action at a certain point on the page.

Full disclosure: I’m developing a plugin with a highly configurable version of this functionality, and I’m looking to make sure I name it appropriately in a way that will describe its functionality immediately to customers.

Thanks! :)

Chris

This information can be found in the product description http://codecanyon.net/item/events-calendar-pro-wordpress-premium-plugin/109301
