I use include(locate_template(‘x’)); to get modules set by my page builder, as the module files inherit the variable scope, which I 100% need to make it all work. Is this okay?

This is what Konstantin says (comments area):

Hey Luis, thanks for your comment! Indeed, the scope is changed since required is called inside the load_template function. It’s not necessarily bad practice to short circuit it, but I’d rather have functions that return values, than variables in the theme scope.

So I guess you should be fine.

Were themes without blog even approved in the past ? when asking in the forum i was told it was mandatory even for one pages/vcard conversions.
I don’t know.. I guess News/Editorial themes doesn’t necessary need a blog?

A little Q, so just to make sure if we have our own custom post type like portfolio, personnel … etc… Do we have to separate them as plugins?
Yup, that’s the best way to do it anyways.
I like how Envato is upping the ante here. The gauntlet has been thrown. That’s why I’ll be buying the themes that are up to the challenge and may begin ignoring the ones that don’t (regardless of an author’s sheer inability, laziness or personal philosophy on why not to cooperate, etc) because that kind of modularity is just that awesome to me. I’ll also be more inclined to want to reward the author with my purchase if this additional effort has been made. It may even separate certain elites from other elites. I personally can’t wait to see what comes of phase 2 in November.

Couldn’t agree more. I am all for challenges :) This is what will separate the professionals from the rest. Also it may clean up the marketplace in a more natural way.

In last 3 month i have spend many time on my latest WordPress theme, since there’s new standard i thought i must re-work on some aspect to match new requirements. My theme almost 90% done but seems it would taking longer to complete since new rules would applied.

I hope at least Envato can provide a sample theme which has structure that match new requirements for developers.

Well, [blog] posts are a core feature of WP, and

“index.php should be reserved for standard blog “latest posts” view.”

so might as well have a blog page section

Or even an expanded list of what should be in ‘plugin form’ would be great

A good sample would be underscore theme <http://underscores.me/>
