What happens with the bonus prize if there are less than 3 entrants?
- 10 x $400 prizes for the best files in the following categories (also voted by Modern Tribe):
- Best New theme/integration ($400)
- Best Upgraded theme/integration ($400)
Does this mean that an existing theme can be updated to include support for Event Calendar 3, and stand a chance of winning in this category? I assume it wouldn’t be able to win in the main event.
We just had ours approved (http://themeforest.net/item/huckleberry-ghost-theme/5884584?WT.ac=category_item&WT.seg_1=category_item&WT.z_author=Studio164a). I’m hosting it on Digital Ocean, which is pretty excellent. It took me about 20 minutes to get the hosting & domain set up last night, so wasn’t really a hassle. You do need to have a little familiarity with SSH though
We got our entry submitted. Really hoping themes accepted into this category will get the exposure of being on the front page with all the other new products. I totally did not notice the other four themes being accepted, and I’ve been checking back reasonably often
We’re working on an item for this contest. Just wondering, will there be a Notes post with the winners?
Just asking because we also submitted an entry to the crowdfunding competition a while ago, and haven’t seen a Notes post for that one…
Quick one regarding the Theme Check feedback.
include_once is permissible, but
include aren’t allowed. Is that correct?
Could you please re-check again about admissible and inadmissible shortcodes?
I see buttons, dropcaps, and lists are admissible shortcodes, but columns, maps, and contact forms are inadmissible shortcodes….Switched? Are you sure?
Pretty happy to see maps and contact forms under the inadmissible shortcodes! There are plenty of plugins to choose from if you want to provide that functionality to users.
I find it odd that pricing tables are included in the admissible list though…
Great to have these guidelines! It’s been frustrating in the past when guidelines have apparently changed, so it’s great to have it printed here in black and white.
Quick query about #6 under PHP. Can we use the more verbose, but clearer, endwhile, endif, endforeach, etc in template files? I use curly braces in all the non-template files, but avoid those in template files as I think the alternative is much more obvious to someone who doesn’t know PHP.
Really pleased to announce our crowdfunding theme for Wordpress in online!http://themeforest.net/item/franklin-wordpress-crowdfunding-theme/5063650
