CALL THE INTERNET POLICE!!!!
Bump! Guys, it’s important, people keep asking about WooCommerce 2.1 compatibility because they can’t see it in item’s sidebar.
I don’t think it’s accurate, In my case it shows half or even 1/3 of sales volume, but maybe I’ve made some mistake in configuration.
I have no WP themes so just an opinion:
Why not just allow one “base” theme for a “base” price
If the author likes to offer a Woocomerce version (s)he should build an additional WP pluginThis way buyers get what they want (more features for more money), people don’t turn away cause of “bloated themes” and the homepage/popular page doesn’t get flooded
If the author likes to offer a BuddyPress version (s)he should build an additional WP plugin
The only way it would make sense to make Lite Theme would be if they will be available as one item on marketplace, and in sidebar there would be option to select WooCommerce and/or BuddyPress (and others) compatibility, which would increase base price. But that would complicate many things with updates and support.
Anyway, I’m against that ‘Lite’ version trend. There’s already too many themes available here. Tell me how many of themes from the last pages are still selling or are used/supported? http://themeforest.net/category/wordpress?page=128
Is it ok to release theme that is compatible only on servers with PHP 5.3 and newer? WordPress requires PHP version 5.2.4 or greater, and I assume there are still many hostings that are on 5.2.x. Do you have or know about any theme/plugin that works only on >=5.3 and how many buyers have problem with that?
Now we only need Jeffrey Way back here and it will be superb.
It looks even better if you have one or two items in portfolio, check how ThemeFusion’s portfolio looks now http://themeforest.net/user/ThemeFusion/portfolio/
