@Codester – The problem is that if we allowed templates for a variety of languages, we’d also need reviewers with expertise in each of those areas, which might not be feasible.

Would you still be allowed to sell it as an HTML and WP site as well? I guess for the most part the HTML and PHP would be the same, but with some advanced functionality, which is what customers would pay for.

It could get messy with 3 of each template out there though, if most people did all three.

It could work….. Comment sections will get out of control possibly… Support will see a huge increase so price must be jacked up.

I can get on board but it’s a bit redundant in some situations with HTML , PHP, and WP, as well, it could be difficult to support if you don’t know your $hit on PHP and are offering PHP files.

@valendesigns – Yeah, that’s my concern too. The reviewers would have to be extra strict, and there would have to be some terms about what we do and do not accept. For instance, submitting a static template with a PHP contact form wouldn’t be enough.

We’d be hoping for built-in admin panels, and such.

Sounds nice, I was about to propose something like that last month… so we’re talking about a real functioning website with custom CMS , right? That would require quite a testing (for example, you’ll have to make a script to perfectly create all the DB on the user server) so prices will be reasonably high.

And just a quick question… could authours have the option to use frameworks? :P

@CMT – Not sure yet. Probably wouldn’t require a full CMS , as that could be redundant. I’m thinking one step up from static templates.

  • PHP organization (header.php, footer.php, etc.)
  • PHP contact form
  • Admin panel for easy editing
  • Additional server-side functionality
  • Etc.
