Your feedback would be appreciated..
I'm working on a "point-of-sale" (POS) system for WP and would like to publish it eventually on WP.org
My prototype is a WP theme. The interface for the cashier looks similar to the Image results one gets when googeling for "HTML5 POS".
I just wonder what is better...
1) Publish the system as WP theme
Technically no problem, designers could easily create child themes.
Downside could be, that it wont be accepted for release because it would be a very special theme with lots of special functionality.
2) Publish as WP plugin
Could imagine there is no problem with the release on WP.org
The "cashier interface" HTML could be a plugin file, which is fetched via the "template_redirect" hook and then used like a theme page template.
But it will much more difficult for designers to adjust the HTML/CSS
3) is there a third possibility ? :-)
