Q: Are we allowed to create a child theme of our current approved WordPress themes? I ask this question, because it seems that an author already done that. http://themeforest.net/attributes/framework/Layers%20WP


#5

Can we use the child-theme example of the documentation as point of start?


#6

Good reason to try layers :slight_smile:


#7

It’s looks simple. Generated 2 pages within few minutes. But kinda limited in functionallity.
It goes like a theme , is it valid? Can I as designer do it without developer or I still have to find someone to check validations? Or if it’s widget ready, and everything going via customizer - I don’t need any dev?


#8

Is that fits? http://psd.la/lawp/ - created based one of my current items.


#9

One question -> If I have a theme which is a microniche and also using Layerswp thn is it applicable on both most wanted contest?


#10

Wow… that is great. Let’s try…

Hey,

The Child Theme example in the documentation is a great start, from that you can get the best methods which we’ve used to create our own Child Themes.

It’s a good starting point.
Anyway, I am not sure if it’s just a typo. In functions.php around line 102, You should use :

get_stylesheet_directory_uri()
instead of :
get_stylesheet_directory()

#13

So do you need to add options etc and theme development, or can you just build good looking demo content?

Thanks


#14

Great! If I don’t want to join this contest, am I allowed to use Layers WP framework and upload the theme into category WordPress > Corporate?


#15

This new way to make WP themes is nice to make the market saturated even more than it already is.

Hey there,

The ideal Child Theme adds CSS, uses the hooks and extends the customizer options. Theme Options aren’t necessary, but adding preset layouts certainly are.

I am playing around this and I do not see the row settings here, where can I add a row with bg image and 4 columns in it?


#21

Yesterday approved so many ( about 10) layers themes on the market. Was it in a day intentionally?

I tried the framework and looks good but bit limited to create fully functional sites. Anyway hope many people interests it
