    Where is the money for theming ATM?

    Drupal? Wordpress? vBulletin? phpBB? phpLinkDirectory? MySpace? Shopping carts?

    I would really like to start selling products for a source of income.

    Any ideas?

    Wordpress themes, where you sell links in the footer. You then give the themes away free. You also take custom paid work of course.
    I've noticed a lack of suppliers for quick mods of existing free themes too, might be a good area to get into.

    Joomla and Drupal. There are very few decent looking free themes available for those (in my opinion at least), and those that are well designed are predominantly premium themes.

    Thanks Andy. I will look into Joomla and Drupal. ^^

    I started on a PHP Link Directory theme for the mean time.

    I shouldn't really be showing anyone this early into the design. Oh well...

    No problem. It's just my take on it anyway...

    Off Topic:


    Just a gentle reminder that we don't allow links to our own sites in posts (self-promotion) So it's a good job that link leads to just an image, otherwise I would have had to remove it. Having them in a signature is fine though.
