There was a thread similar to this one and I believe they are working on a “send preview to reviewer” function so you can send the reviewer a .jpg of your theme. From there they can tell you if you are on the right track or not. Of course things like coding and validation still come into play, but it should give you an idea.
I’m not sure where they are on this, so maybe Jeffrey or another staff member can chime in here
Yes, thanks much Envato staff and Collis, you guys rock
Wow, its so cool to watch the community grow! Great job Envato and staff
No worries at all, your quite welcome
Good luck with your search.
Basically, you’ll use AJAX to talk to a php script, which will in turn search a MySQL database per user input and return info. You’ll then use php to return the information back to your AJAX script, and jQuery to display it nicely to the user.
There are a lot of really good programmers on here that could probably do this for you. Give this thread a few days and then you could start your own thread here asking for a quote.
Envato also has a site where you can post a web programming job for free, there are some good people that search for jobs there too. See: http://jobs.freelanceswitch.com/
Best of luck,
As for the licensing on the font, you usually can never package fonts, but you can use it in a theme preview and then explain in the text file how to download and set it up.
Edit @kuimu-your welcome, nice call on the font
You’d have to get a quote from a programmer for an exact price. Could you explain more what your wanting to do? An auto complete drop down search (kind of like google)? If so, there are a ton of tutorials on the web you could try to follow, but you may be better off hiring someone if this is for a professional or business website.
There is also @font-face but this is hardly reliable and wouldnt recommend it.
Edit-You’ll find most people use images, along with default browser fonts for web design. sIFR and JS techniques are kind of a bonus to add to a theme
Im not sure if it is the exact one but: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/ef-typeshop/montreal/heavy/ certainly comes close. I love the font as well
