There is no checklist…
The only thing considered mandatory is follow wp_standards and Js/css standards.
Other than that you can more or less, do whatever you want as long as it is unique and has a strong design.
Cool, thanks. What is the max width I can go on an HTML page? Usually I go 1000 pixels wide, but can I go 1200 pixels wide? I’m not referring to pages that stretch to 100%.
Also, should I create the “standard” HTML pages (Home, About, Contact, etc.) outside the Blog, or use the Blog to create those pages so they can be more easily managed by the customers? Or should I just do whatever I want? LOL .
What about photos? Someone on here said Flickr allows certain pics to be used for the demo, is that only if I list the credits?
Regarding the width of the Theme you are free to have any figure as the width. I use 960 grid system so I always have 960px wide pages.
And The regular HTML pages that you are referring to are actually PAGEs and BLOG is actually Posts. I think you got mixed up with them. I suggest to go through WordPress Codec.
@ZERGE… Dude, THANK YOU ! YOU RULE ! I looked for this, but could not find!
@Graphitizer… thanks for the width! Also, been reading over WP Codec every time I get a chance.
About the photos, how can I know for sure where to get quality photos for the site template demo without freaking out about the license/copyright? I looked everywhere but I keep finding incomplete information.
