So can someone clarify for me?

Wordpress releases constant updates that affect security, stability, etc. A theme needs to stay current with those updates to fully function.

A properly coded theme does not need updates, I have themes that have been error free across 8 wordpress versions now, with no updates.

It’s all about the quality of the developer

I’m still undecided whether to get an iMac 27” 32GB RAM 3.4 GHz or a MacBook Pro 15” 16GB RAM 2.5 GHz — 27” is such a gorgeous and huge display but 15” MBP is Retina. I decided to ditch the idea of the MacBook Air because I need more power. With so many great options is difficult to decide :(
depends if you want to leave the office with it or not :D
I don’t usually leave the office but Retina :/

Retina laptop is mega useful, get a retina MBP and then treat yourself with a 27” display :)

Hello again,

The list includes all themes that mention either Slider Revolution or Showbiz Pro in their item descriptions, even those that are already using patched versions of the plugin. We’re doing this so we cover a range of scenarios such as a buyer purchasing a now-updated theme back when it was still using a vulnerable version.

Hope that makes sense :)

This doesn’t make sense when the theme was released after Feb 2014 and has never had a vulnerable version of Revslider anywhere near it though? Seriously, I have multiple themes on the list that shouldn’t be anywhere near either list since they were released well after the patch!

There’s simple solution – themes without several dozen demos should be cheaper.

No thanks, make the dozen demos themes more expensive, themes are cheap enough as they are

My theme does not run in /wp-admin/widgets.php so how the error occurred here?

Likely your theme or a required plugin of your theme is enqueueing either JS or CSS in wp-admin that is affecting the widget areas.

Did the reviewer give you any browser or OS details to match their video?

I must admit, over times I’ve skirted both sides of the fence when it comes to these big “multipurpose” themes, but this is starting to get a bit silly now.

50+ demos for a theme is simply unsustainable, never mind the 6+ bundled premium plugins, Envato really do need to start stepping in on issues like this.

If Envato are making moves toward sustainability (read: support changes) then sustainability needs to be the name of the game across all areas, and a market where buyers are starting to expect to see 10+ demos per theme (I’ve already been asked why I don’t do this by buyers) is simply unsustainable.

If you can’t built a WordPress theme from scratch, you shouldn’t be selling WordPress themes, seriously, what happens when you need to debug it?

Spend some time learning to develop WordPress themes properly, carefully choose your frameworks, and develop a product that is your own.

Grabbing a starter theme, slapping a page builder in and updating the CSS would work for a site you’re making just for yourself, but it’s likely to be very problematic if you start selling it.
