I always thought wordpress is just for blogs? and everything else is kind of a “hack” to make it work the way it does?

Using a page as a blog category to display blog posts was a “hack”. We still get questions from buyers why we don’t use such a blog page.

Since the introduction of post types, taxonomies, etc, WordPress stepped up from being just a blog platform to being more CMS oriented.

Yes, it’s mandatory, also the comments, it was a “pain” for our last theme.

Yes, don’t forget the comments. They are a bless for any design that was not intended to have them. :)

I don’t think widgets are mandatory though, remember there is that “widget ready” parameter when submitting the theme to review queue.

edit: Actually, we have one approved theme without widgets so I guess that’s settled.

Exactly, websites exist nonetheless. About blog being a requirement on TF, you have any direct experience ? as in reviewer = “no blog, GTFO!”

We have, and our theme was accepted in first version without blog. Of course, that wasn’t so easy, first time it was rejected, but after uploading again with a message with explanations why there is not blog, it was accepted.

But I would recommend you to add the blog, or expect to have a problems with buyers. Unfortunately one page themes are most problematic – people wait from them the same functionality like from any other traditional theme.
