I highly recommend you hire a freelancer or developer to help you, just because WordPress and themes are simple (to a developer, or regular user) doesn’t mean you will succeed with absolutely zero knowledge on the subject.

To watch a video and quote “Alien Language” can only mean your technical knowledge is at absolute zero, this is not a problem, but understand that in situations like this you’d likely need to hire someone to help.

You wouldn’t build a house if you didn’t know how to lay bricks, you’d hire someone instead :)

haha, people speak about insurance.

I mean indemnity insurance for us authors. It occurred to me that a developer using a theme, if they considered it bugged, may be able to try and sue for lost time. Indemnity insurance covers you in such situations, I was just wondering if any authors had though about it / bought it?

I was thinking about indemnity insurance the other day specifically because of things like this, has anyone ever considered it?

SEO plugins don’t and can’t fix poor HTML structure. If the theme using multiple H1s, for example, there’s nothing a plugin can really do about that.

I’m so sick of hearing this, it’s the only thing anyone ever harps on about, and it’s totally wrong!

In valid HTML5 markup, not only are multiple h1’s correct, they’re actually encouraged!

I really wish people who criticise SEO would actually do a little deeper research first.

@codepanels, try not to call out items on the marketplace, that can end up with threads being locked :)
OK sorry, I didn’t know. Thanks for warning.

No problem :) I marked your post because of this, but your point still stands, there are 2 themes by my count currently on the homepage that are offering between 10 & 30 different demos & configurations, yet are still priced the same as any other “standard” theme will WooCommerce.

Your demo took 9 seconds to load, Themeforest homepage traffic is really intense, if this were to be accepted at the moment then your server is probably going to timeout.

You have a 1.5mb image in your demo? Why? There’s no reason this needs to be above 200kb with proper optimisation.
