To give you more of an idea what we’re looking for. We have broken it down into two types of intergration:
- Basic Integration – The Events Calendar feels like a cohesive and consistent part of your theme. The typography is consistent, margins and padding feel right, sidebars show up where they should, and the color pallet matches. Everyone hates when a website feels like a Frankenstein bolted-together mess – we’re looking for seamless thoughtful integrations.
- Advanced Integration – Here the Events Calendar gets some real loving. Maybe you’re extending or modifying views, or even adding your own view. Maybe you’ve got a unique responsive approach, or a mobile specific view. Consider baking events into the homepage, or other spots where you wouldn’t normally see them. With these types of integrations, we’ll also be looking for best coding practices as well. Think about cooking your new features or views into and add-on plugin to keep your theme code nice and tidy.
What to Do After Your Items Are ApprovedOnce your items have been approved, do the following as soon as you can:
- Complete the Most Wanted Entry Agreement. By doing this, you agree to keep any winning entries online for a minimum of two years.
- Post your approved entries in this thread.
It’s as simple as that! The first 10 files to be uploaded (and subsequently approved) based on the above requirements win. Good luck!
WOW! Rewards are very cool! Good luck to all, who start!
