Before you add plugins’ compatibility in Premium WordPress Theme

Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

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.


AΒ 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

My workflow#

This is how I tackle with the 3rd party plugins’ compatibility issues in ref to my premium themes.

That’s all, I hope it helps. Any comments?
