Yep, +1 to remove the square bullets on portfolio list.
24 days later, sitting a top new author spot for the month and already black paw – i think you’re doing pretty well regardless!
By the way, your item is totally awesome – i love the quality of documentation and the code is really easy to work with. Great work!
If i could chose (i never had either) i would definitely pick the featured item!
Every second week or so i check out many of the new featured themes and templates.. I rarely bother clicking on the Featured Author.
Will look into that..
Is there a possibility in WordPress to have users opt-in for categories from a blog with multiple categories, so they see a news stream only including articles posted in the selected categories?
I guess this is something like your social streams (twitter, g+) except instead of following persons, you’d follow categories.. Something similar to Pinterest. Makes sense?
Ideally, i’d need the user to be able to tick checkboxes for his “areas of interests” on first visit during signup process – then his stream would be set up.
Thanks in advance for your help
+1 for the amazingness of this framework.
The only thing that bogs my mind with the extensions (and other TF prospects might feel the same) is the introduction text that says: “they are like plugins, but directly integrated within your theme for easier theme shipping” or something like that.
I know that there is an option to export extensions as plugins, but this intro makes it seem like you’re doing the exact opposite of what should be done, keep functionality in plug-in land and out of the theme’s code..
Up to now, that always kinda scared me to tinker with the extensions too much. Maybe you should consider rewriting this intro paragraph (i think it’s in the WP admin under extensions main tab).
Also, within the extensions, how would you compare the “custom post types and fields” with plugins like Advanced Custom Fields and Custom Post Type UI? Any harm in using these plugins and requiring their install rather than using the provided extensions?
Again, awesome work Andy!
Tuts+ Premium also offers this progression course suggestions via the “guides” – https://tutsplus.com/guides/
I tried Treehouse but i was getting very annoyed at the acting of one specific tutor, that was giving cheesy colgate smiles at the end of each explanations. It was funny the first time, then very creepy and off-putting. I thought the course looked nice but there was way too much special effect / staging etc when all you want is learn the code..
That said i am sure there are wonderful courses in there too!
Merry Christmas everybody! Be safe and enjoy this time with your family (if you have the chance to)!
Here’s what I have done personally:
1) signed up to Tuts + Premium. Most useful courses for me were the ones by Adi Purdilla and Jeffrey Way – these guys are awesome!
2) Buy a few HTML templates on ThemeForest and study the heck out of them, tear them apart and try put them back together.
3) learn Bootstrap, Foundation, Skeleton or another CSS framework – and try build a few projects with them!
4) when you feel like you are getting somewhere, try upload it to TF. You will probably get hard rejected and discouraged by the “coldness” of the rejection e-mail. Don’t give up, that’s a step every author (most of them) had to overcome. Post a link to your rejected work in the item discussion forum and ask for feedback – the community is great and you will get very useful tips!
5) keep reading stuff, learning, following new trends, look at popular items on TF.. Things will start falling into place.. Most of all, have fun and enjoy the ride!
