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:

..but from a buyer’s perspective who knows that support is now mandatory from authors, he could make a lot of noise and mess.

+100000

A lot has been said already, I just wanted to emphasize on this

Hell will break lose, 1 Star Ratings will fall down from the sky, and we the authors will have to be slaves for EVERY. LITTLE. THING. that the lazy customer didn’t read in the documentation.

“You are required to give me support! Where is that Permalinks menu. I can’t find it, it’s not on my Wordpress installation. Tell me where it is or I’ll shoot you with this 1 Star!” (And the 1 Star is not the scariest thing)

Maybe with a title like:

Theme – Magazine, Shop, Community WP Theme.

They are afraid that there are taglike word in the title. Maybe it’s a precaution that eventually the names of the themes will become:

Name – Grid, OnePage, Parallax

Name – Photography, Portfolio, PageBuilder

Name – Corporate, SEO, Slider

On the other side. I’m sure that a title like:

Name – Griddy One Page Parallax WP Theme

will pass :D

Every week there is a thread where someone is asking for a get rich quick scheme – reselling, ready frameworks, a design math formula to get your item approved.

Hey, just give everything you can from yourself, be sure to enjoy what you are doing and the money will come after that.

Hi, when purchasing a license for a plugin/icons you’ll have to buy and Extend one and contact the author for a permission to use it in your item as far as I know.

You can also use free resources for your theme, just be sure to check their type of license.

And for the tools, Sublime Text will be enough to get you started writing code, it’s simple and very extensible with add-ons.

... And there was a rule a long time ago that a site should load in 2 seconds..

But yes, it’s a trend now. Which gets me thinking – is this that the clients want?

In my opinion they just doesn’t understand that they want this, but nevertheless they are pulled by themes with preloaders.
