I saw this in those premium theme site. They are offering a link within the instruction page. So, there is no often. But, do you think if a theme which required users to download dozen of plugins can considered as premium theme?

Just my 2 cent.

don´t know, really, i mean, “premium”.. tomorroy the name will be “golden templates” and so on….

i agree with you on the “amount” of extra things to include, you know, the less, the more easy to the buyier.. but always you need a plugin to do something, it´s imposible not use one or more…. or dozens!!! jeje.

by the way, nice works kailoon, like your clean style

I only ever use plugins now if I really need to and when I do I make it an option so if you user wants that functionality they can, but I’ll put it on an options page so its up to them, I must admit with Kailoon, when someone buys a premium theme it should be premium, the user shouldn’t have to then set up a whole load of plugins just to use the template. As for whether it is against the rules, I doubt it will be but you’ll have to check with staff about this, most plugins are released under terms that allow the use in most things, the plugin should be an extra to a theme.

Not saying that we do not use any plugins. But better do not include into the theme. Because I consider it as a add on to a site/blog. So, I only prepare what is included in my design :)

Thanks.
