Must be in plugin: - Custom Post Types - Shortcodes

So 99% of authors will create a new plugin like theme XXX functions plugin. Some will need to change alot from their framework and some will build a new framework .

We’re wasting alot of time for no good reason otherwise for new envato rule . I’m sure it’s not a good move.

I disagree moving widgets and cpt to plugins, they won’t work as standalone and never will be offered as such. Shortcodes can go to plugin, no problemo.

Shortcodes will work, but that would mean additional css and js files inside the plugin.

In any case, we are talkin about hundreds of good selling items and a ton of rework for each and every item. I only have 2 items but I don’t think I’m gonna do this mass rework. I am way too busy with other stuff and updates.

Not necessarily… You can disable the loading of extra css/js files when the theme is active, so you load only the custom styles for your own shortcodes. Then, when the user deactivates the theme, the default css/js of the plugin will load normally.

If I get my WP items disabled for this change, I will stick with Joomla, WP worth no effort at this point.

That wasn’t what I meant. I meant that lets say user wants to only keep a single shortcode from the previous theme. He will have styles of all shortcodes from the previous theme in the new theme.

Unless you prepare seperate stylesheets for different shortcodes.

I fail to see the problem in that?

I’m going to ask again @envato. What is the final world for:

- how about widgets? - how about css frameworks that have some buttons styles like foundation/bootstrap? - why is so hard to create a FAQ and give us some light?
