100% of all themes lately are made WITH BOOTSTRAP. These guys are starting with a base, and changing css now.

This statement is funny because you also use bootstrap in your scripts. Does that mean your scripts are just bootstrap with some css modifications?


I didn’t get it, they should be cheaper or more expensive, in your opinion?
This is what I’m wondering as well. Was there even a market back then?

Envato was founded in 2006 (with “FlashDen” only). Fairly safe bet that there weren’t any markets for most of these types of items even then.

WHAT! Building a theme takes longer than building a script? BAHAHA.

100% of all themes lately are made WITH BOOTSTRAP. These guys are starting with a base, and changing css now.

The problem is that the marketplace is stuck in the old days, and they price items according to 1999 charts.

So, if your scripts are using a ‘starting base’ like jQuery or bootstrap itself, does that mean your scripts didn’t require much work? Apparently you don’t know much on what happens behind the scenes when building a template,. and lets not even mention building a wordpress theme. The programming time a WP theme requires is the equivalent to various scripts, at least.

Maybe you should try changing from CC to TF then.

Trolls gonna troll.

On Topic: Sure it’s interesting to know which markets make more money, but as an author you’re always best to focus on your own skill-set (what you’re best at).

I can only talk from Graphic River and ThemeForest and ThemeForest is far more profitable, but it’s far more work.

It seems pretty clear to me after a few months on here that anything Wordpress related are the biggest sellers. Wordpress runs the web right now! :)

@FinalDestiny and other authors from TF

I retract that statement and replace it with a less general statement, of trends with some authors (lately) is to bootstrap everything.

I do however stand by the fact that it takes longer to make a script then a template. Templates are not dynamic (minus WordPress of course), and most use core plugins already available.

The equivalent is to quit using flex-slider and write you own slider..ya I thought so.

Take a look at Envato’s own graph:

Envato 3 million

http://notes.envato.com/milestones/the-envato-marketplaces-population-3-million/

Do the math (pageviews x average item price) probably isn’t a bad estimate of relative profit. ThemeForest is crushing the other marketplaces.
