One thing to consider is that you’d probably have to make sure the theme worked fine-ish without the plugin activated.
This is the one and only issue about it being a plugin really, I mean tbh what I’d probably do is just have a modal pop-up if they’re on the site without the plugin sending them to the TGMPA page, but I wonder if the reviewers would have a problem with this? Hmmm.
So I’m updating my theme framework, and thinking of moving it out to a plugin, require with TGMPA and everything should be good.
The idea behind this being that I can easily update my framework then across all themes with just 1 plugin update if anything crops up.
The other alternative is a baked in framework, that can update independently, I’ve seen a few authors do this, but I’ll be honest, I have no idea how to handle this.
Any opinions on either?
@tommusrhodus Does this mean you have received your PayPal payment today? I have the old PayPal interface and my primary currency is USD (so updated interface and currency are not the problem in my case). Still, no payment for me today, not even the “Your Request for Withdrawal has been Processed (i.e. we sent you money!)” email from Envato.
It’s still the 15th for another 13 hours, don’t worry, it will be coming, I have roughly 50% of my withdrawals processed so far, the others are still queued.
Paypal have updated it’s user interface, with a frustrating new feature.
If you don’t have your account set-up with a USD currency section, you’ll see that your payment has come in (in $) but your balance is still reading zero.
Click the “paypal balance” title, then click “manage currencies” add in USD to your list.
Surprise! Your money is now showing.
What a horrible UX this is!
I’ve marked this for staff reply, as far as I know you have to include a local copy, but if I can just link my buyers to online docs, well then that’s going to save me a lot of time when it comes to documentation updates!
You can just contact envato support and have the limit lifted if you ever bump into it you know..
Oh FFS, why is Envato now emailing the buyers of some of my themes that were never vulnerable, even from version 1 of the theme, as the theme was released with rev slider versions after 4.2, right now you’re costing me support time and weakening my buyer confidence.
I had a few affected themes by this, and I’m glad buyers of those themes are getting emails, that’s awesome, but why the hell are you emailing buyers of themes that are not affected by this!?
EDIT: Oh wait, I know why these buyers are getting emails, it’s because of your lazy list making in the first place. It’s not excusable that because you’re too lazy to actually check the themes in your ‘potentially affected’ list that you’re now emailing my buyers about an issue that never existed in certain themes, your laziness is now costing me time, great.
Almost any theme could do this with Gravity Forms plugin or similar, and some custom development
Last problem that i have it is very painful for me is envato reveiw team approve ELITE AUTHOR easily and comfort .
God, seeing this just bores me now, stop looking for an easy way to make yourself feel better, being an Elite Author does not mean we get special privileges, all you’re doing is looking for an easy answer.
Furthermore remember that every Elite author started in exactly the same place as you, just keep working and you’ll get your file accepted eventually
