Hi, I’m working weeks ago on my first wordpress theme you can see it here (demo.farkess.com/bibos) it’s under construction but i’m afraid take wrong way, this is theme feature :

- simply fully customizable all what you seen in the demo is fully customisable (background, header, menu, slider) fully customisable mean (user pattern, color, border, shadow, fonts, text color, block order….) -ready for mobile devises.

So can please tel me if i take the correct approach bilding this theme? thank you

Might I suggest building the whole HTML template before making it ready for wordpress. As it currently is, Im not sure if it would be approved by the Themeforest.net review team cause of its design.

That way if you create the HTML you can have that approved, THEN make it ready for wordpress.

Hi jessengatai, My work is not based on a HTML Template, it’s a template framework, in the demo each element is created by seting some configurations in the template admin panel, for exemple let’s take the header block (the one with the logo) this is a DIV that the user can configure hole css element, like background-image, box shadow, border margins, paddings… so i can’t prepare a HTML TEMPLATE because the possibilitys are unlimited so what can i do? can this work be accepted?

Thank you,

Not all HTML templates converted to WP are approved for the WordPress section.

This is bad idea to start with a WP theme as your first item. The design by your link is too far to get accepted in WP category and in HTML category too.

Start with HTML template first. Or you will lost your mind redesigning a WP theme after every rejection.

@libertux, you must understand what they say :) Trying to make and get approved on a wp theme from the start is hard job. There are tons of frameworks out there, that is not the problem… The hard part is to get the design past the reviewing team. :)
From what I see there… you are far from having a design with all his artwork, typography & grid system ready. People want to see your framework in the best shape possible.

Ok, i get it now. All these options are great for theme, and easy customizable themes are popular. But i’m more than sure that you can’t sell such item on themeforest if it not has a high quality design (even if you offer unlimited possibilities in customization). There is just no suitable category.

But if your framework may be used and will be useful in other themes development, you can adapt it and sell on codecanyon!
