One should always ask for permission. That’s an ethical must.

Yes, that’s right. It’s a shame that there are authors not doing it and that verifying if the author has asked for permission is nearly impossible, excluding the common authors as Ivor said.

@Ivor

Yes, I know that. It just made a bad impression on me, when the designer shared that information with me.

@RescueThemes

You are absolutely right, there are so much assets available for commercial use and I would use a copyrighted image unless the author personally give me a permission.

Maybe it goes like this, an author is in search for images, sees a fellow author who uses cool ones in its theme and says to himself: “Oh! If that author is permitted to use these images, then I can too.”

(The threat title is a rhetorical question.)

Okay, so right now I’m working on the demo of my forthcoming theme and asking some artists and designers to use their work for.

I stumbled of an interesting case – a designer rejected giving me a permission and after that he said something along the lines of “Yes, I know that my works are used, and I’m taking the necessary steps to end this.”

The worst part is that I’ve seen his work on a themes by some Elite authors here. Well isn’t this bad of the reputation of the whole marketplace and at the same time unfair to the other authors who want to to this the legit way?

I know, I know that images are not everything but they DO sell and it’s question of principle. Where would this market go if everyone is stealing left and right?

But, I really hope that the design of theme options layout will be just like other options frameworks (let’s say, SMOF), you know, the menu on the left (with child menu), the content of options is on the right. That’d be super duper awesome..

Yes, yes. + 1 here

I saw this in the thread for the option frameworks, great great work!

I saw somewhere that it has One Click Demo install integration, or am I mistaken?

@Parallelus @Roxygo Are Runway and Unyson supporting Google Font integration?

Oh, simple yes. I suppose you just ask them to copy the new code over styles.css.

I’ve just now stumbled upon this: https://github.com/sanchothefat/wp-sass

Has anyone used it?

Hmm, that’s interesting to know. Is the tutorial about the command line compiler or do you recommend them something like Prepros?

Hi, I’m struggling to find better ways to organize my css properties to be ready for options panel integration,

For example if you create a Main Color field in your option panel, how do you write your css properties so you can put an instance of them in your custom options file (or header, or something else) than will overwrite the original ones?

I often find myself searching in the css file for all occurrences of the main color and copying their selector with the corresponding color property.

The problem is that I can’t always group everything in say:

.selector1, .selector2, selector3 {
 color: #555;
}

because sometimes I have background-color: #555, border-top-color: #555, border-right: 5px solid #feed71 and so on.

Do you use some better method than searching for all occurrences as me, do you use some SASS magic, or something else? Please share, thanks :notfunny:
