Name and Description Guidelines

ShapeBootstrap encourages the authors to follow some best practices while naming a theme and writing its descriptions. The item name and description writing guidelines are as follows.

 

1. Make it Clear

Your item name and description must make it clear what it is developed for. Minimum 10 and maximum 100 alphanumeric characters including '-', ‘,’ and  '/' are allowed in titles. Describe the item in a way that the buyer can easily understand whether the template will meet their needs. 

 

2. Good Title

The item name should be relevant, brief and professional. It will obviously create a good impression about your theme in the potential buyer’s mind. 

For example, “NewEdge - Modern HTML News/Magazine Template”.

 

3. Proper Capitalization

Follow proper capitalization rules. Here are some examples.

Best practice:  “Template Title” - Use the capital form for the first letter of each word. You may use lowercase for words like “and”, “or”, “to”, “an” and so on if these are after the first word of the title.

Wrong practice: “template title”: - Do not lowercase all the letters. It doesn’t go with a title.

Follow industry standards: Use abbreviations, brand names etc. in native forms. Example - HTML, Bootstrap, CSS, AngularJS, jQuery.

  

4. Avoid Over Promotion

Do not use self-opinions like “the best template”, “the only template” etc. 

  

5. Full Disclosure

Fully disclose the relevant facts about the item. If you use something in the demo which is not actually provided with the theme package, mention it in the documentation and description.
