you should really apply quality, not quantity in your workflow. If you’re not able to do 7 projects on the WP standards, do less. Quality > quantity

Thanks for your advice, i appreciate it but not complying with the new requirements of TF has nothing to do with quality, everyone likes our designs and our templates. All vcards on WP themes do not have WP native menu integrated but they’re for most of them high quality themes, so is ours.

In any case the issue right now is to understand what are the acceptable requirements of TF for the month of August so that we can publish our projects in peace.

Cheers UOU Apps

Hi UOU Apps,

Using get_template_part and native WP menu are not new requirements, in fact they are old requirement. It gets more attention now because Envato put all requirements on one page, so all requirements look new for some of us.

Using get_template_part for template files is a must because it makes your theme support child theme in WordPress. You can still use include_once function to include your files that related to theme functions that designed not to be override on child theme.

I think it is about you, how to deal with this situation. If the main menu in your vcard theme is not possible for using native WP menu, then don’t use it, leave it like that. You only need to put another wp native menu, for example to create an inline footer menu, then you will pass current requirement.

A short question from me.

Does moving the functionality to plugins means that now a third party plugins like Flexslider 2 can be used with the TGM Activator? Although relying on them can be a little troublesome.

TGM Activation Class support all free plugins from WordPress Repository http://wordpress.org/plugins/ and also Pre-Packaged plugins. If you talk about a third party plugin that is not on WordPress Repository, it means that you need “in stock” license OR permission/agreement from the plugin author to include the plugin as Pre-Packaged plugin in your theme.

I have a suggestion.

So, according to new Submission Requirements, functionalities such as widgets, CPT, shortcodes etc. should come as seperate plugins. By doing this, users will be able to preserve their data after switching from one theme to another. However, since there are hundreds of different plugins for each functionality, most of the time user wont be able to just install their new theme and use old data right away.

So, here’s my suggestion. Envato (as an authoroty) posts a public list of most common or endorsed plugins and authors make their theme compatible with those plugins. That way, when user switches from one theme to another, he/she can not only keep their data, but they can start using it right away. And authors can focus on creating themes, instead of constantly reasearching the market to comply their themes for every slightly popular plugin out there.

And yeah, that way we can avoid authors who participate in “who can support more plugins” competition and therefore overblow their themes with templates and css code, as we all know, this is bound to happen.

I work for a company that has an official account here and has sold and bought many items on TF. This is my private account which I use for expressing my personal oppinion. I’m more than familiar with this subject.

Then please post your opinions with this account, not with a clone. It really doesn’t help us getting feedback from users that have no buyer badge yet complain most of the time(I’ve seen a few cases).
