Hi, are TF accepting Modx theme submissions? I’ve seen the category but no submissions as of yet.

Will also be interested in a partnership with anyone looking to transform their psd or html template in to a Modx theme.

Many thanks

Hey everyone :),

I want to inform you that we’ve launched Adobe Muse Templates in Themeforest. You can find them here:

With Adobe Muse, you can take a design and create a website without knowledge of HTML, CSS or Javascript. Despite some limitations, Muse offers enough flexibility to create great desktop, mobile and tablet experiences.

Here are a few sites made with Adobe Muse:

If you’re interested in getting started with Muse, there are numerous tutorials online. Here are a few tuts to get you started:

reported an increase of at least 30% in sales
An increase of 30% is not 3 times more, which would be an increase of 300% :)

Hi Ruben,

You’re right, 30% doesn’t mean 300%. The CEO’s #’s included authors outside of Themeforest. After his claim we went through the data for all of our WordPress files and found numbers specific to Themeforest. Themeforest specific increase is on average 3x. This is probably due to to our large international audience. Sorry for not clarifying.

Thanks, Will

Having a theme/plugin published is mandatory to sign up on that developer training?

You’re not required to have a theme/plugin to sign up for the developer training.

Or if you look at a different way, if a theme has multiple languages included, that may simply imply that the author made a bigger effort than one who made a theme without extra languages. In other words, if you include languages, you probably included other cool features too + worked on the site longer, which would ultimately = more sales. Sometimes correlation does not imply causation. :)

I originally attributed this to effort. But during a conversation with the CEO of iCanLocalize, he informed me that developers of themes that had become WPML-compatible reported an increase of at least 30% in sales. The increase came after they added Multilingual support. Thanks for the feedback.

The Marketplace Growth Team is constantly analyzing data and looking for new ways to help you earn more revenue. The Growth Team recently examined the WordPress category and uncovered a gem: multilingual themes are outperforming single-language themes. In fact, multilingual themes have on average 3 times more sales than non-multilingual WordPress themes. This is a remarkable discovery and a testament to the global reach of the internet. To help you create the best multilingual theme possible, we’ve partnered with OnTheGoSystems, the creators the WordPress Multilingual Plugin, WPML. WPML is a commercial product, normally costing $79. You are invited to receive a complimentary developer account for WPML, so that you can make your themes and plugins multilingual-ready. To apply, visit their Go Global Program. When completing your Go Global Program application, be sure to enter the link to your Envato profile in the designated field.

To help you get started, OnTheGoSystems has agreed to lead two free developer Q&A sessions. These sessions will focus on helping you make your themes and plugins multilingual using the WPML plugin. The first session will be on July 9th at 10 am EST. This session will focus on making your WordPress themes WPML compatible. The second session will be on July 10th at 10 am EST and will focus on making your plugins WPML compatible.
