Then I see that many templates use famous images with famous actors, videos from cartoons or movies… why on TF this is allowed and not on AD?

What we can use as contents on our themes?

Thanks and sorry for the many questions! :-)

You can use images of actors, videos etc inside the preview only (if i’m correct), you may not include this kind of stock inside the source files.

But the best thing to do is to read the Wiki or wait for a staff member to reply to your question, this way you’ve got the correct answers.

I’ve read the wiki, but you know, you think to understand a rule and then you see something that seems to break it… btw I have to wait an official answer also for the question about the flash files…

Thanks ;-)

Yeah , showing movie picture and stuff like that on the live preview is like a grey zone I think.

This is a little bit off topic lol :)

I took it off. I made the mistake of thinking a nice design is enough to sell well here but it’s not. The quality of the file here at TF force me to step up my game and focus on the functionnality of the theme I create.

I only do design for 1 years and I don’t have much experience. I am passionnate and I think I have a good design sense but this is not enough.

So I decided to take it off and work on it a lot more. The theme only had 1 layout wich was 2 equal width collumns .. wich doesnt give a lot of flexibility to the user. I had a LOT of great comments on the design but one of my clients explained me that it would be a lot better to have different layout like a full width , 3/4 + sidebar , 3 equal collumns etc etc.

I will do more BG option too and a working contact form.

I don’t know if it will be accepted as a new item but if it’s not , I’m not going to resubmit it here on TF , I will just sell it as a whole unique site because I think this site have a lot of value.

Also , I want to make a WP theme out of it so I think the multiple page layout is really necesseray.

Thanks for asking :)

Sorry for that off topic P&K ;)

According to TF rules (I DON ’T KNOW IF ITS THE SAME AT AD ) we can “use” what we sell at TF ourself but we cannot sell it at another place being an exclusive author.

If its the same for AD then you cannot include your flash files your themes for at TF.

But, my idea is that you leave space for the flash file, add a BUY THIS NOW image there and hyperlink it to the file available on AD. Although in the preview you can add the real flash file so that the customers do get to see the flash file.

If you do do that, remember to include a note in the theme description that the customer will have to buy the flash files independently from AD for the prices given :)

Hope i helped :)

No, I’ve asked to the AD site manager and I’m allowed to use my flash files. It has already done.

You cannot sell, when you’re exclusive, your items on other market places… but TF and AD are part of the same market place.

Then, in any case, I will give on TF only the swf files, because the fla files are not needed by an html template buyer.

Then, also if this wasn’t possible, I could easily build a new file to include here… so…

Thanks for your answer guys ;-)
