What is the problem with his Enoupps template? It if fully ready HTML template. WP dev job:

1) create wp templates using HTML template (1 day);

2) create shortcodes and generator (HTML elements ready, get any ready generator code and let’s go :) (0.5 day)

3) create options panel with ready solution like Options Panel Framework (1 day)

4) the hardest thing – custom widgets and widget areas, their flexibility (2 days)

5) other small things and features, testing, demo version, docs (4 days)

Totally about 8-10 days of honest work for a good (not great) developer. Do you think designing, coding HTML template get less time, efforts and professionalism?
Damn, I must be really bad developer if it takes me 2 months to finish theme :(

Do you use a reusable framework for your themes or are you developing every theme from scratch?

Of course, you have a great portfolio. But if you start with ready HTML template, 2 month is too much, don’t you think? I know it can take a lot of time for advanced themes, but if it your tenth theme, 2 month is much.

I described the process for the template in Bhagwati portfolio and i’m sure there is nothing to do with it for 2 months at all.

Agree and many times “premium features” come first than WP standards… just because the competition between authors. Having generators and 1000 options doesn’t help when a theme is missing the most basic and important things. Some authors are lucky because the most of buyers don’t have tech skills and so they look at the features list only :)

50/50 is fair deal.
If you are profile holder and have a good percentage rate (you vs TF / elite author), great PS skills (not making generic design) and you have a fair number of fb/twitter followers and subscribers – you can go even higher (55/45 to 60/40).
And you can’t mesure spending time on developing with the quality of work. Those two don’t mix. Same thing is with the design.

Just my 2 cents :)

Even during flashden era, what’s seen alwais payd more than what’s not. Majority of buyers do not care at all of what happens behind the scenes.

If you have the responsive HTML theme then are you planning on selling that as well as the WP theme?

It would seem to make sense given there are a selection of buyers on here who prefer HTML to WP. I appreciate that whoever you were to partner with on WP would not be entitled to a % of the HTML sales but am still curious as if you plan to sell those also. Thanks
