I would like to create a theme without shortcode but sill looks premium, can we do it in present trend in themeforest? any theme in the library without shortcode?

All home page blocks should be controlled from Theme options, and the portfolio pages from page template.

Please throw your ideas.

My last theme PerspectiveWP, doesn’t have shortcodes. All is managed by theme options, page builder and metaboxes. I personally decided to exclude shortcodes and twitter widget from my WP themes. :)

I don’t think that shortcodes are required to be present in the theme for it to be accepted (and @Smartik confirmed that). But how exactly page blocks will be controlled? Some Drag & Drop UI?

@Smartik: did you used custom page builder or some 3rd party solution? I was about to use some PB on theme I am currently working on, but all PBs I found looked like some kind of bloatware to me. So I rather created custom shortcode generator (similar to Zilla SC in terms of functionality).

@PhantasiaAeterna, I’ve used Aqua Page Builder with my custom blocks. Blocks are created like widgets for sidebars. This way every theme can have it’s unique blocks. http://wordpress.org/plugins/aqua-page-builder/

MY all themes have NO Shortcode.

I am using the Drag & Drop Page Builder. To create sidebar choose the column and drop the modules simple.
