    hey guys

    i know this is not really a support question

    i could use some opinions in regards to thematic child themes, and if you think there is a market for them as either free or premium themes.

    figured i should get some input of fellow thematic uses before i invest in lots of time and energy.

    hope some of you can offer your opinions

  3. i think most people develop custom solutions using Thematic, not build themes to sell to the masses, at least that is my case. I know Allan Cole sells a child theme that is quite popular (Autofocus), maybe you can ask him?

  4. i'd agree that most child themes are meant to be individualized solutions, but i'd agree that autofocus proves there is some market. i think autofocus is popular b/c it provides some neat functionality and looks really cool... which is sort of what makes any theme marketable, imo. child themes are just not as well known and a lot of people don't even know they exist so that does diminish the market.
