Japh said-|| It would be quite possible for you to create an “all in one” plugin, and simply have the theme switch on / off various options, similar to the add_theme_support() function in WordPress itself.

Thanks Japh, it’s a good point. So, we should create hooks inside our plugins and have plugin features control inside every specific theme. That makes sense ;)

To be 100% clear, are you saying that we should create a SINGLE plugin that has everything thrown in?

I’m saying I don’t see why you wouldn’t put related functionality into a themed plugin. You may also decide to create a more generic plugin to use as a framework for your range of themes.

At the moment, that is what we’re saying for Phase 2.

I have a question. Do we have to really follow this: http://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/coding-standards/php/#brace-style

I don’t like my braces with unnecessary spaces.

How far should we go in terms of putting custom functionality into a single plugin? For example, I could have separate plugs for portfolio custom posts, client lists etc or I could just create one big plugin call it “My Theme Plugin” and it populates the whole theme with the required functionality as opposed to separate plugins. For the newbie buyer it might easier to maintain one plugin, but for more advanced authors they might prefer the separate option as well as the author being able to push out updates individually to the plugins.

It is part of WordPress, but the idea is to make everything more universal. The easier it is for a user to change theme, the more themes they will buy :)

Japh, you are doing a great job by the way. My only concern is ACF. It is a core part of my theme and probably few others here. If you can add that to the exception list, I’d be happy. Technically it should already be an exception since it can be used as an Options Framework too. Thank you for considering it.

What about Custom option page http://wplift.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/busby-theme-options.png

This must be (as Custom post type) a part of plugin? btw. is add_menu_page allowed in theme check?

Yep, I understand that. You’re using ACF in Lite Mode as a n options framework. My feeling is that this will be allowed, but I will be sure to discuss with the review team to confirm.
