Great. thanks for helping me out with this. However, I’m still a little confused about what I would do about the images that I would need to upload in the Media Library. Basically, I’ve created some custom meta boxes that allows the user to include an image from the media library and there is no option to provide a link to the image, so I can’t simply link to placehold.it.

Can I download the images from placehold.it and include them with the theme to solve this problem?

Thanks again and regards.

@charlie4282 Right, but I’m not sure what placeholders are we expected to include. I saw a theme that uses what I believe were simple black background images as the placeholders, though I’m not sure as it was a YouTube instructions video on how to setup the demo, and it was a fairly old theme. So I just want to know if I can do that too, or if there is a better or more ‘accepted’ approach to this.

Hello guys,

So I’ve just finished working on the demo of my WordPress theme, and I’m very excited to launch. Now I want to create the demo content for it, as I believe it is a requirement now, but because this is my first time I don’t know what is the best way to do it. I know how to export all the content by going to Tools, I just don’t know what to do with things like images, for which I don’t have the right to distribute with the theme, and also for the pages that rely on the user going to the Theme Options and setting them.

I’m mostly concerned about the images, as I just can’t simply use lorempixel for all the images, as you can imagin, a lot of my theme’s functionality depends on the user including an image from the Media library.

So please let me know about this and I would be very grateful for any help.

Thanks!

Hi,

The only advice I can give you is to read articles from Smashing Magazine. They publish very often about Typography and their articles are some of the most comprehensive out there.

Good Luck!

So I read this article about how much of the internet is blue, and thought that a lot of the themes here also use blue in their demo site as the accent color. And because I’m in the process of creating the demo of my very first WordPress theme, I’d love to know what you guys think about this and especially if having a different accent color for the demo such as Orange or Purple would matter a lot.

Thanks.

Here is another one: http://www.amazon.com/WordPress-Web-Developers-Introduction-Professionals/dp/1430258667

It talks about almost every aspect of Wordpress, and also Plugin and Theme development in good detail. However, I’ve never found any better resource for learning theme development then Adi Purdila’s tutorial series: http://code.tutsplus.com/series/adaptive-blog-theme-from-photoshop-to-wordpress--wp-28964 Make sure you take a loot at that, if you already haven’t.

Why would you offer a style switcher in the theme? That’s only for previewing purposes, it doesn’t have absolutely any sense in a live environment.

Well, I just want to have the style switcher for the demo page, which is my biggest concern right now. Otherwise, I don’t see the point of having that in the theme as well.

However, this would be my first time submitting to Themeforest, and I just thought it was a requirement as I believe that we are required to create a demo page such that the user can recreate it. Thought this was part of that, just not sure about it actually.

Hello,

I’m creating a Wordpress theme and I would love to know if there are any jQuery plugins for creating the front end style switcher. I’ve seen a lot of threads about this on Themeforest, but most of theme talk about creating your own code for it. I can do that, but since I’ve noticed that a lot of the themes have similar style switcher that slide from the side, I was thinking that perhaps there might be a well recognized and stable plugin for it, which I would prefer.

Also, while searching I came across a thread in which the author had gotten soft rejected for having a style switcher build into the theme, and having an option to disable it in the options panel (which is what I’m doing). I can’t find the thread now, but I just want to know if this would be a problem now, as that was a bit old thread, and I can’t find anything about this in the submission requirements.

Please reply regarding this, and thank you.

I figured out that I can use my own Google Fonts API key, but still not sure about the Maps API key.
