    Wow, I'm very impressed by the video & demo of Dokan. It looks to excel Matt Gates's Product Vendor in every way except for one. Dokan is a theme and not a plugin. Now I'm trying to look into your WP User Frontend and see if this would suffice with Product Vendors to create that “front end” experience for my vendors but it's seems like throwing a bunch of pieces together and hoping it will stick.

    Hello,

    Currently we do not have any plan to make it as plugin Cause, then it will be hard to manage so many features and not all the themes work same way so, many compatibility issues will come forward with different themes.

    You can use any theme as child-theme of Dokan.

    Documentation here: http://docs.wedevs.com/category/themes/dokan/developer-documentation-dokan/child-theme/

    I appreciate the speedy response. Wouldn't that create a unstable environment if you install a child-theme to a parent that aren't in common. My theme is Newspaper (http://themeforest.net/item/newspaper/5489609) which has alot some features Dokan doesn't (ie: buddypress).

    I know not everything is compatible but I've just never heard of thought of having a different child-theme connected to a parent theme. I always thought they needed to be the same theme at least.

    It is true there could be possibly many issues when it comes about compatibility with different themes or plugin. The features Dokan has, if it was a plugin then surely had many issues in regards to work with different themes.

    If you are not a developer, it is better to hire someone to make it compatible.

    Thank you.
