is TGM mandatory ? say i don’t need all TGM features but can obtain the only ones i’m interested in with simpler (custom) code, would that be a problem ?
We don’t have a concrete answer for this. Can you show me some custom code that we could look at to evaluate options?

Hello Sid and Japh,

Sorry if this has been answered before. Does custom features like Theme Options, Page/Post option panels, Exclusive widget areas, etc. needs to be in plugin? Or they can be included in theme functions or template parts.

If Envato want to standardise everything so that there is a generic structure and versatility regarding themes, should envato not come up with a standard class which will do this rather that different authors using different code.

This way it can be monitors easier and prevent confusion.

To build a class which forces activation on plugins isnt a huge job so should envato no include this in a repository and make it compulsory to include it within the theme to activate all plugins used within the theme?

Can someone clarify on this thread: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/theme-rejected-shortcodes-are-key/103439 According to the OP they got rejected because the shortcodes are not within a plugin.

Kailoon has already clarified on the original thread itself.

I’d love to know why you’d want to write custom code for this rather than using an existing, recommended, class?

As we’ve made fairly clear in the Notes post and requirements themselves, we’ve nominated the TGM Plugin Activation class as this very solution.

Because i almost never rely on 3rd party code when i have to support the item myself. I’m not saying i will but i’d like to know if a simpler solution based on wp hooks similar to this one exist for plugin installation, will i be allowed to use it ?
