If it’s a fresh install you may want to check this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-install-asks-for-ftp-details
You know if WordPress is asking for FTP credentials then it’s probably because of a security plugin you’ve got installed right?
EDIT: WordPress doesn’t do this by default, nor would a theme add this functionality
So, as a buyer, I won’t purchase a theme which does not have a page builder if I’m going to make a business site but for a creative or blog site, it’s a different story
Cheers for the feedback Iman
What about the actual page builder itself, is it enough for a complex theme to simple have a page builder, or is there any specific page builder you keep an eye out for?
I love visual composer! As I just set up websites, it is the end user that maintains them, and I find that they just love the ease-of-use a page builder gives them.
Thanks for the feedback! If a theme you liked didn’t use Visual Composer would you instantly move on to the next? Would you give the chosen builder some thought, or is the familiarity with VC a core value you have when buying a complex theme?
Any buyers out there, if you’re buying a theme thats complicated enough to use a page builder, do you specifically check which page builder this is? Do you prefer certain page builders to others? Could the choice of page builder completely make or break the sale for you?
Authors – Same applies for themes you buy, but I’m quite interested in buyers answers here, so let’s try keep opinions hidden so as not to distort the feedback
Themeforest requirements officially suggest TGMPA, I’ve used it in about 15 themes so far, you will not be rejected for TGMPA
If you’ve already bought a theme, all you need to do is go to the “downloads” page of your themeforest account to re-download the latest version…
In my opinion all global settings should be added to the Theme Customizer rather than a separate options panel / page. why? Well then you’ll never have to update your theme because a WordPress update broke your options panel!
Any post specific settings should be added as post meta (custom fields) where appropriate, but try to be sparing here.
As for font choices, this plugin integrates with the Theme Customizer:https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-google-fonts/
