I later changed my form to forefoot running. This wasn’t easy at all to adapt to but I have not had any issues since other than initially breaking my toe nails (surprisingly didn’t hurt and I noticed this by accident :D ), my toes would swell sometimes and get blistered etc. All good now ^^ I discovered that when heel striking, i.e. landing on my heels, I’d take all the impact in my knee. This does not happen when I land on my forefoot, I feel the impact in my calf muscle. So my advice for you is to find your running form. If your feeling injury in your knee, hips etc, look into your form. Good luck!

I’ve been thinking about this recently myself. Wondering if I should try to change my form to forefoot running, and how I should go about doing that.

I’ve also heard that barefoot running, or using the Vibram Five Finger shoes, can be an added improvement to that. Have you tried those?

Japh,

Without TGMPA or alike the plugin is embedded in theme hard coded which means no theme no plugin. However with TGMPA the plugin stays there without the theme itself. And it is strictly against your license terms.

And your requirements are in conflict with your licensing is what I say.

We have asked in-stock usage permissions as well as TGMPA or alike permissions to authors of plugins we have in our theme (which is not on theme forest) and we are eager to use our private repo system for the plugins. However to avoid future headaches we need to be sure that your bending of your own licenses will also apply to us who are not selling on theme forest.

I understand what you’re saying, and as I say, we’re not bending our licenses.

You currently have an arrangement with an author that permits you to integrate a plugin into a theme, rather than distribute it alongside.

Our requirements simply say that plugins distributed alongside the theme are recommended to be installed via the TGMPA class.

If you couldn’t distribute in this way according to your current license agreement, nothing has changed. Using TGMPA doesn’t exempt you from adhering to license terms.

Ok, let’s consider by names :)

I have visual composer extended license. I want to bundle it with my theme I use TGMPA or alike (private repo etc) to make user install it.

Now user disables my theme but has visual composer in plugins dir. Which is against extended license terms.

This is exact issue I am talking about.

This issue exists with or without the TGMPA, and with or without the WordPress Submission Requirements.

As I mention, it’s not a requirements issue, it’s a licensing issue. You as an author need to ensure that you’re abiding by the license terms of code you use, and so do buyers.

Hi graphix2html, as I said in my last paragraph above, if a plugin is being bundled with the theme, it should be installed via the TGM Plugin Activation class. If the plugin has licensing that doesn’t allow for bundling, then it shouldn’t be bundled at all.

This isn’t an issue with the requirements, it’s an issue with bundling.

Hi graphix2html, the WordPress Theme Submission Requirements do not cover licensing. Licensing is a separate concern.

It sounds like you are implying that the requirements force authors to do something which is not allowed in the licensing, but that’s actually not the case. There is more than one choice for authors in a scenario like the one you outlined.

If an author is distributing a theme that relies on a plugin that can be bundled with the theme according to the relevant licenses, then that plugin should be installable through the TGM Plugin Activation class (or similar).

I’ll be getting fibre connected to my house sometime in the next few months, and I’m really, really looking forward to it!

This is my current situation:

Yep, D+ club for me too! (For now…)

Hey Kevitus, check out the second dot-point above, under “How to Submit Your Items”, there’s a link to a Ghost theming tutorial on Webdesigntuts+ :)

Finally here! Last night I arrived into LA from Amsterdam after WordCamp Europe (which was awesome!). I met Travis King at the airport and while we were waiting for a taxi to the hotel, some poor woman had her foot run over while loading her bags into a car. Screams across the airport welcomed me to LA. I hope she’s ok :(

Trav and I got safely to the hotel, had a quick beer where I regaled him with the history of absinthe. Then I hit the hay.

Now I’m off to find some breakfast! See you all soon :)
