For those that create WordPress themes, when designing the PSDs do you include all the example body text, and possible sidebar/widget variations.
whenever I use PS to mock up a design I usually jsut put the default stuff in there (body content, archives, categories etc) , whether everything makes it into the final design depends on whether it fits in with what i’m planning.
I’ll worry about the content of the sidebar etc when i come to coding it.
I usually include just enough to demonstrate what I am trying to achieve. Building a mock-up is really just a guide or a basic blueprint for me. Some things change in the build that just seem to work better than the initial idea. Then some things I just build right in the code. I sometimes find myself going back and finishing the mock-up just to have something for people that purchase the theme. I try to make sure all graphic elements that would likely be altered, are available in the psd and basic copy to demonstrate the key elements.
