Gated Documentation for Templates

Hey team,

Having browsed and purchased several templates to help me better understand how different things work together in Bubble, I want to draw attention to the absolute LACK of documentation and quality control being applied to templates that are listed on the marketplace.

From an outsiders perspective, this lack of essential “Getting Started” materials reflects poorly on Bubble.

Well written documentation separates the amateurs from the professionals. The problem forcing template developers to restrict how much effort they put into documentation is that in the marketplace’s current form it would be public facing. Public facing means that switched on users could just read the documentation to understand how a feature or function was implemented, resulting in a lost sale.

So my recommendation is to provide a section for template developers to add their documentation (and support screen shots) which is released to users only after purchase.
