Nice job on this theme... it looks spectacular and I'm quite interested.
I take it that what I'd be purchasing is a multiple plugins with full source code?
What if I'm currently in development/staging mode and don't have a production website? (I put a bogus one currentlydonthaveone.com in just to see if I could get to the shopping cart page and was able to but didn't proceed since I wasn't sure what it was going to do with my info). After placing the order, is there a download button that I'll be able to use to download the plugins? Or how exactly is it distributed?
Basically a theme can be described this way:
1. A bunch of dll files, which are the different plugins included in the theme and giving all these features that don't come out of the box i.e Ajax Filters,Product Tabs, Sliders etc. All these plugins are available for FREE Trial download and you can play with all of them. The plugins that are included in the theme are aslo styled specifically for the theme.
2. A bunch of Razor views, which are actually .cshtml files(mix of html and C# code), CSS styles for the theme and images.
That's all a theme is. The plugins are not open source and also you don't get the source code for them but they are different from the standard nopCommerce plugins as all their view files are not embedded but are open for modification. The actual theme Razor views are also open to modifications and you can customize them however you want.
Yes, when the order is placed and is paid you will be able to download the Theme package from Downloadable products in My Account section of the web site. The package is a .ZIP file with all the plugins and the theme. There is an online documentation that you have to follow to properly install the plugins and the theme files.
The domain name is required as you will get 1 FREE support for the theme and we should know which the domain is. If you don't know it at the moment then place what you think it should be or your company domain. There is also Multiple Domain License where you are allowed to use the theme to as many domains/websites you want - in that case you can simply put any of your web sites or your company web site again.
