This is proposed every week – and there is a reason for that.
Imagine a 1 star rating for reasons like this on the first days of a published item…
Then we authors should start creating simple themes that equals their pricing.
.... of course this will never happen because everyone wants to be a top the other releasing tons tons of stuff in its multipurpose theme.
Oh, I wrote the wrong thing. I use only the grid and some of the components. I download the minified package and overwrite it with my styles in a separate sheet.
Yeah, as simonswiss said – 1 license per site. Overall read his answer, much more informative
I’m using it but somehow I see these negative margin on the rows as a very ugly solution
Someone to prove me wrong?
1), 3), 4), 5) With a Regular license you can customize it anyway you want for personal use. You can’t sell it, but yes you can create your own website where you can sell your products
2) The template is front-end only. You should create your database by yourself.
The components are not displayed in the theme – but a buyers that sees the template was built with BS may expect “ah cool, then i can use tabs and accordions since i know how to do ti with bootstrap”.
If your theme uses say a sidebar, I don’t see the point of styling the top nav bar of bootstrap. It doesn’t have a place in the theme, it’s not build for that purpose.
What happens if a client see in the description that your theme is based on Bootstrap 3. Then he buys it because that usually means that full Bootstrap library is there and he’s used to Bootstrap. Then he add some code for some component just to realize that it doesn’t work. How do you provide support for that kind of ‘problems’ for the clients?
Well, based on Bootstrap doesn’t mean Bootstrap theme (like Flatstrap and so on..). You are in no way obligated to do full bootstrap support. Why customize components that are not meant to be displayed in your theme.
I download only the grid and a few components, which I overwrite with my own stylesheet.
Downloading the whole package and using its elements is an overkill for me as it’s easier to create your components.
For me, all the multipurpose themes needs higher prices. This is the thing that by my opinion started the whole trend of multipurpose themes. The popular list is full of these. Why buy a theme for $45 when you can get a multipurpose for $50. Which is sad, because I like the approach of the simple and fast to configure themes, and sure do the clients I think. I’m not saying all this, so everything can be in flavor of myself, I just think that this is the correct way.
I imagine in the future the market – full with components. Why a theme when the only thing that you have to design are the components and integrate a page builder. Just leave all the placement (including padding, space..) to the buyers..
Envato should really step up and do something about the pricings. The market can become a really great place. It can also be collaborative, open a s special thread, something like this..
