I would prefer to keep the plugin as an external plugin and I would use the TGM plugin activator for easy installation.
Either way, though, the users would not be able to update the plugin themselves without the update being included in the theme (as an external plugin or otherwise) since they would not have access to the plugin directly to receive updates.
I’m still waiting for a staff reply on this… I know the same plugin has been used in a few other themes and the plugin author seemed pretty confident in saying the plugin needs to be included in the them.
Yeah, it’s not very clear. I had requested a staff reply as well.
We are releasing a theme which uses a plugin that is for sale on CodeCanyon and have purchased the extended license. According the plugin author and my interpretation of the extended license, we need to incorporate the plugin into our theme in order to follow the licensing terms… but, when we submitted the file for review it was rejected with a note saying we shouldn’t include plugins directly in our theme and should keep them separate.
So, which is it? I would rather keep the plugin separate if that still follows the licensing terms.
I’m looking for testers for a free WP plugin of mine called Ditty News Ticker, which can be downloaded/installed from WordPress.org plugins directory. The reason I’m hoping to get some volunteers is that I’ve had one user complaining of multiple issues and calling in unusable in both Firefox and IE on a PC.
From all my testing and usage I have not seen or run into the issues he is mentioning, nor have I heard similar issues from any of the over 3,000 other downloads of it… But, this user is adement in saying that my plugin is the issue.
Here are a couple issues he is supposedly running into:
- The Scroll Mode is extremely slow in FireFox, and only a little faster in EI.
- The speed setting is somehow not working in both browsers.
- The Rotate Mode is not functional in both browsers as well
- No Follow not working!
I am currently working on the scroll speed issue in IE as I do see that issue… but, I have tested multiple times in both browsers and do not see the other issue… I would fix them if I did.
If anyone is interested in doing some testing for me please let me know. Hopefully posting this here isn’t breaking any forum rules.
I did not know about that. Thanks! It definitely looks like something that would help.
I’m starting this thread to just get suggestions from other authors who supply or suggest certain plugins with their themes they are selling.
I am of the mindset that most custom WordPress functionality should be put into plugins and not built into a theme. But, I am running into a few buyers who seem to get enraged by this notion… that the “theme” doesn’t look exactly as show in the preview, and seem to be really annoyed about having to install plugins (that don’t automatically install themselves).
Granted, this has just happened a few times… but, like I’m sure all of you know, I don’t get bombarded with questions from people who are happy and understand the product… only the ones who have issues with it.
My documentation does specify to install specific plugins.
Do any of you have any tips or suggestions for best practice in appeasing these types of buyers? I have a few things I will incorporate into my next theme regarding this, like:
1. Making sure to note in bold face about the theme using additional plugins. 2. Having a “warning” in the dashboard upon theme installation about installing additional plugins.
Any more suggestions would be great! Thanks!
Nevermind… It was the “max-width” property that Bootstrap applies to all images. I just have to override that to “max-width:none”; on the vegas background.
I’m attempting to use jquery.vegas.js in a project… it seems very easy to setup, but my images are not staying proportional.
I’m not seeing any documentation anywhere concerning this issue… Has anyone who uses this plugin run into this issue before? And if so, how did you resolve it?
That’s kind of what I figured…
It would be nice if there was some sort of short-code to display a item thumb/preview that we could use in descriptions or our profile page. Something like:
That would insert a thumbnail along with the tooltip.
Is there a way to make use of the built-in Envato tooltips on images contained in product descriptions?
I want to add a specific file thumbnail within my other product descriptions and am hoping to make use of the tooltip as it’s used on the frontpage, etc… I tried just copying and pasting the link and image code, but all the extra attributes get stripped out when the description is shown on the page.
Is this possible?
