Hi All,

Probably this question has already been answered, but I am little confused on how I should upload my wordpress theme to marketplace.

I have read and understood the upload instructions at the wiki page. My confusion is about the live preview.

Many of the themes available for sale here have been hosted as live preview on their own domains of the authors. So does this mean I need to do another install of wordpress on my server for a preview purpose?

Also I see that in the preview (of other authors) though there are comments, but adding extra comments in not successful – how to achieve this?

Regards,

Yes, you need to do another install of wordpress on your server. As for the comments part, it could simply be that the comments are pending approval?

Thanks Gyro.

Can it be done for free somewhere? As my hosting provider allows for only one mySQL database which is already utilized by my personal blog.

regards.

You install more than one WordPress install on a database. When you download the new files, just change $table_prefix = 'wp_'; in wp-config.php to something like $table_prefix = 'wpdemo_';

Thanks for the tip mate. I will try this.
