It finally happened!! After what felt like months of waiting, my WordPress theme that I submitted to the official WordPress Themes Directory finally got approved. Yay! It’s called Quark and it’s a simple and elegant starter theme built on HTML5 & CSS3.
I recently made a presentation at the monthly WordPress Melbourne meetup on getting a WordPress theme ready for submission to the WordPress Theme Directory. It covered the Theme Review Guidelines, WordPress development standards and the GPL requirements along with testing requirements. Everything you need to know about making your theme submission as smooth as possible.
WordCamp Sydney was held over two days recently, and I was lucky enough to fly north for the weekend to attend. Over 215 people made the trip to Sydney, which made for a great weekend. Attendees ranged from theme developers, plugin developers, web hosts, bloggers all the way through to people who simply use WordPress to power their site.
ECommerce websites are a huge business and they’re only getting bigger. According to the US Commerce Department, eCommerce sales within the US alone totalled $194.3 billion in 2011. Whoa! This figure is only going to increase as more and more people see the benefits of buying & selling online.
