Hey guys, funny thread. :P

The depth of documentation depends on how many pages, features and options your item offers. The more it offers, the more you should cover in the documentation. It doesn’t have to be a book but it needs to be more in-depth than listing the item’s CSS files or the very, very basic HTML structure of one page or section.

@ Mark – Your admin template is pure awesome. It’s a pleasure to come across items like that when reviewing. However, with an item that in-depth, the documentation needs to be relatively matching. I look forward to approving your new template. :)

any documentation examples about, or is it expected to purchase a similar theme (in terms of feature set) to get a baseline?

Purchasing a similar item is probably the best way to determine the baseline. Themeforest also offers a help doc template in HTML here: http://blog.themeforest.net/site-news/building-better-template-documentation/

Please use our documentation template: http://enva.to/TFHelp

You can use a more creative design if you’d like but that template outlines the sections you should cover. Also, authors are expected to provide more information than just replacing the minimal examples in the documentation template. The template is just a starting point.

Purchasing a similar item is probably the best way to determine the baseline.

I’d try to stay away from the idea of determining a baseline off other items. Template documentation is pretty simple really. Document the features, options, basic code layout, resources and credits.

You aren’t teaching buyers how to use HTML , CSS or JavaScript but instead providing some explanation as to how you’ve built the template, how to use odd or custom features, etc.
