I'm interested in building themes for MarketPress, more or less from scratch.
Upfront will not be involved, and neither will any of WPMUDev's legacy themes (except, perhaps, for the occasional snippet or inspiration). Yes, I know these are great themes, and no, I'm not complaining about any of them, nor do I have any particular objection to any aspect of any of these themes. They just don't happen to fit into our preferred workflow.
To my surprise, I've found very little authoritative information on the proper way to go about doing this. The resource that appears most thorough thus far is The Easy Guide to Theming Marketpress. However, as this article was published back in February, 2013, I had to wonder whether everything it covers is still current. And it seems that some things have indeed changed since that article was published. For example:
1. The [Themeing_MarketPress.txt] file has moved (to [wp-content/plugins/marketpress/ui/themes], for those who might have missed it).
2. There are now two files named [template-functions.php]. And while the placement of these (one in [wp-content/plugins/marketpress/includes/common] and the other in [wp-content/plugins/marketpress/includes/multisite]), seems to suggest that the contents of each should be obvious, some additional documentation would be nice.
3. The live demo at wp-ecommerce.org seems to have been retired.
Can someone please share updated information for those of us who need (or want) to build MarketPress themes from scratch? Perhaps some clarity into how much of the above article is still current?
And maybe some additional articles (anywhere), that are known to be accurate and current?
