A user on the Themeforest forums, “Level_1_Media” asked a question recently regarding Premium Theme Develeopment, and after a bit of back and forth I decided I’d turn my answers into a post series.

What I’m going to cover: Some choice techniques for building premium WordPress themes, read: Theme for Themeforest basically.

What I’m not covering: Basic theme development, 101s, basic function usage.

The idea of this post series will be to reveal some of the secrets that premium theme developers are using to create themes with a few blog layout options etc. As always there’s loads of ways to do the same thing in WordPress, I’ll be showing you my way of doing it, if you have another way that’s fine, and feel free to tell me why I’m totally wrong in the comments if you need to!
