This is getting ridiculous. People have literally crapped all over the screen!

I suggest everybody upload a 30×30 icon for themselves, and in the end one designer shall stitch all of these icons into one big wallpaper so none is missing or no one occupies larger chunks. I hope this is how it’s implemented.

Ok we are already aware of the 12-13 year old kids being authors on ThemeForest. Which makes me wonder who is the senior-most author on ThemeForest? Authors above 40 please post your age here and then we will know.

I’m not over 40, though!

There’s a new category for themes like that, named Themelugin

Guess what! Your comments ranks number 1 for a google search of “Themelugin” :D

If you have 19 bucks to spare per month, I suggest you to head over to http://tutsplus.com and get a subscription. They have really high quality tutorials over there, made by some of the top pros of the industry and hence, worth emulating.

And since PSD templates are not worth much, you can also pick up other coding skills to design entire themes and earn much, much more! Education is valuable :)

Images should be 240×160 to look good. Or 480×320. Other images will get stretched.

I am afraid lot of the authors here are better designers than developers. They have either never heard of modularity or are very afraid of it. Hence I find authors saying things like “removing the theme will remove the entire feature”.

Please understand here that the user should not be tied to your theme. Should s/he decide to move on tomorrow to another theme, your custom meta-boxes and what not need be to visible with that theme as well (unless that theme deliberately hides it), if you don’t want that happening, then stop coding functionality items! Stay with CSS for that matter. The moment you touch functional items, you are entering plugin territory.

Just because you put in 1000 person-hours in a code base which has no modularity in it, it doesn’t mean the community has to make do with it. In all certainty, you shouldn’t have built it that way if you cannot move around modules or activate/deactivate them. They cannot be such godly artifacts if they cannot withstand a little shuffle of presentation vs. function and will have to completely thrown out sooner than later…

Argh, this is killin’ me now! If you do not want to name the particular author or theme, at least tell us the exact kind of trouble you are facing. We are so ready to help you but you keep ramblin’ on and on about how the world can be made a better place :)

I am dieing to know what is the exact problem with this theme which still managed to pass the stringent review process?

Try spelling it out here or go over to StackOverflow.com where they reply in matter of minutes to code questions. Is it too complex to write it down here in the thread?
