Svipic saidSeriously? Tell me more how the page builders are better than the shortcodes? Most of them create MUCH more mess especially in the database. Take one of the very best selling composer plugin, create a page using the builder and then see the meta data for that post.
Couldn’t Have Said It Better. Looking forward to your themes in my next projects!wopethemes said
The funny is there are alot of great sale items (>1k , >5k LOL) just use shortcodes for layout , for widgets for everything in a custom page , home page.
As a coder , I’m still feel hard to edit shortcodes to create a full pages. How other buyers without no coding-skills can edit them?
In my all themes , we never let buyer use shortcode to build complex things. The shortcodes are very limited and very simple just like a button or a social icons. All widgets,layout need to be built via page builder which very easy and everyone can do it.
However themeforest only encourage better design , not better functions. Because the better design will give better sale. But when buyer are using a poor functions , all shortcodes theme, they will cry alone =))I think TF should thinking more about the functions , please take care more user experience than the design.
I think its simple and lightweight page builder I like it:http://wordpress.org/plugins/siteorigin-panels/
Is the new office is our envato own office or rent?
Yes, I agree shortcode hell going on here, I dropped using shortcode in my latest theme and thinking never going to use mostly.
Warm welcome to Envato Family!
Grateful to Envato as giving opportunity to earn money while learning.
Why not use this beauty? http://wordpress.org/plugins/siteorigin-panels/ Add it as a ‘required’ plugin on your TGM plugin activation class and done! I have been using it for client’s sites and it works really nice. Also, it uses widgets instead of special blocks like visual composer, so it’s just a matter of including those widgets you like using TGM as well and just style them accordingly.
Really this is best plugin I have ever seen in free category and using my upcoming WordPress theme with TGM activation from WordPress repo, then there wont be any 100% GPL issues and all.
Can’t we create themes without CPT? We can manage Portfolio page using regular post, right? How it would be if we do like this?http://blog.matthill.co/2013/custom-post-types-wordpress-themes-best-practice/
