^ Nice logo man!
Edit: woops, changed the page..
dtbaker saidAre shortcodes and CPTs the only things you made into plugins? It would be awesome if you can share what stuff you did for phase 2
Just submitted a new theme, curious to see if I got all these new requirements right.
Actually for this latest theme I just moved all widgets, shortcodes and sidebar management out into a series of external plugins (see them install in the video). This latest one is rather basic and doesn’t have CPTs, but I would have put those into a plugin as well.
Ive had a problem with WMPL.
I submitted a template to them which is to be released very soon and they said its not compliant because the wmpl-config.xml is empty within the theme.
This is because all custom post types, taxonomies, bla bla bla is within the plugin which is activated using TGM.
I have told them there is nothing within the theme, and that its all within the plugin which is automatically installed on install.
Ive checked on there plugins and its true, when searching theme for custom types etc it does not find them, but it does if searching the plugin.
They still failed it because it cant find it directly within the theme, anyone know a way around this?
Any official update on phase 2?
Since a lot of themes offer very similar additional functionality (like social media widgets, portfolios, shortcodes) it would seem to me that it would be a good idea to have a standardised plugin that contained all of those basic features. It would make things a lot easier for buyers since they wouldn’t have to re-enter content when they change from one social media icon plugin to another (e.g. switching from a themezilla theme that uses the zillasocial plugin to a themebeans theme that uses the beansocial plugin).
