Hello,

I’m still new here and am about to launch my first site template. I basically have a very short question which 99% of you know the answer of.

Should one include a php solution to post an article for a blog on an HTML site template? Sure, with Wordpress the answer is idiotic, but what about HTML site templates?

I was thinking about something like a get_post in the blog.php file, and another blog-post.php file in which the buyer/user can upload his articles. Would that be necessary? Or would it at least be a good idea?

I know that some buyers choose their own custom blogging platforms, but I think that not all who buy an HTML template know this, so that’s why I’m looking for a reply to this q.

Cheers, and thanks for your time.

Html is basically what it states, html.

The only php file i use is the contact.php file for the contact form to work.

Short answer is No. Long answer: You don’t sell cms or something blogging platform. What you sell is layout and design of how blog page will look like. So the php or cms part is not your job.
