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/
You can view my portfolio where the latest theme use Redux frame work.
Really its great plugin and like to use it in my upcoming themes, but we are getting struck at few places like bellow.
I would like to add background color & bg image for the column block, is it possible? I tried using bg color but its disappear when save the changes.https://github.com/syamilmj/Aqua-Page-Builder/issues/61
Anybody got above functionality?
I am also trying to avoid the shortcodes, considered using limited shortcodes using zilla shortcode
I would like to create a theme without shortcode but sill looks premium, can we do it in present trend in themeforest? any theme in the library without shortcode?
All home page blocks should be controlled from Theme options, and the portfolio pages from page template.
Please throw your ideas.
Here is my turn
I will try those in my next project.
