@altinkum – You are entitled to your opinion and that is fine. Admin skins are popular, and some of your previous comments just simply were out of place. If you take one thing away from this post I hope you’ll look at another side of admin themes. They are popular, and for developers who might not be designers, they are very useful. There was a site on the web that used to charge $100/skin and here on themeforest they sell for just $10-$15. Its a good deal for everyone involved. So yes we the designers can take your comments, but no we do not have to agree or change how we do things. Have a great day.
All the themes I I bought here were mostly admin themes. Why? because I want to provide clients with function AND style. I worry about dealing with the code and just use a pre-made admin theme.
Everyone here buys for different reason, people buying admin themes are obviously buying for different reasons than your own. I hardly think that anyone needs to explain themselves to you or go into detail as to why they are designing admin themes…it is pretty obvious though that they are being made because they are so popular.
sales of admin designs tell everything about the subject. It’s important to show your clients you care about all the aspects of your site Expect some admin files from us as well !
I do not understand why do you worry about admin themes this much because waste a time, no body looks at your admin page even if you had a best admin design in the world so why can you not add and create more xhtml, wordpress themes.
Please please stop this waste admin page design and show us some good design, themes etc..As a buyer never looking to pay for admin themes by the way
The new concept of web 2.0 claim to use a good design for those admin sections, is better and easier to administrate. A good example is the cPanel Theme use in the web hosting control panels (eg hostronica.com) the template design makes you work easier with that control panel.
The Admin template helps you to understand better an administration panel.
This niche will soon be filled, I predict.
