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 :)

Regards,

Drew

Your welcome :)

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/

Also this article on Nettuts might give you more insight than I can :) http://nettuts.com/tutorials/javascript-ajax/adding-a-jquery-auto-complete-to-your-google-custom-search-engine/

Best of luck,

Drew

Whats cool about typeface is that since its javascript, if the user has JS disabled, it defaults to the css font settings. So its nice to try our and play around with if you have the time. sIFR is more reliable and cross browser supported (since its flash) but requires a little more effort.

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.

Drew

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.

Basically, you’ll be using AJAX , php, MySQL, and Javascript (jQuery) to put it all together.

Also, just an FYI , Java and Javascript (I believe you meant JavaScript) are two completely different languages :)

Drew

They use sIFR (flash) to embed the font. You can either use that or some JavaScripts, my favorite is http://typeface.neocracy.org

Basically you can use 1 of 3 main techniques -images -sIFR -JavaScript techniques

There is also @font-face but this is hardly reliable and wouldnt recommend it.

Drew

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 :)
