Today when I woke up, and started browsing Facebook, one of my friends in WordPress community Matt Cromwell asked a question which deserved answer in form of a blog post. Or should I say, I started to comment, then built a flow diagram and finally ended up creating the featured image.
A list of requirements for all your Premium Themes when it comes to support 3rd party plugins?
My take on this matter#
I don’t have a particular list of third party plugins which my themes support but I do support some. When I first started building premium WordPress themes, I only took care of certain plugins which I used a lot. Then with the passage of time and the kind of clientele I built, my framework kept growing. I normally support the following 3rd party plugins
- SEO by Yoast
- Contact Form 7
- Gravity Forms
- WP Multi Language
- WooCommerce or EDD
This is how I tackle with the 3rd party plugins’ compatibility issues in ref to my premium themes.
