Envato won’t build the tools that authors have been asking for (for years) to keep up with the support volume on ThemeForest. Authors go to external support systems because it makes support half-way manageable. It’s not because we want to complicate the buyer’s experience. Envato just isn’t pulling its weight in building the platform both authors and buyers need.

You need to buy a new license for each project. It doesn’t change if you modify the theme or make child themes, you’re still using the base and need a license for each project.

Think of it like buying a Mustang from Ford. You can customize it and sell it. But you can’t just walk back onto Ford’s lot and take another Mustang without paying for it to keep distributing “your” version of the Mustang.

You can buy the license, provide the customized version to your clients, and charge them more than the theme’s cost for your services. That’s why most people here do that buy themes.

I update my changelog after each release: http://acumen-magento.gravdept.com/tour/changelog/

It’s a manual process, but it’s more readable. That isn’t necessarily true from extracting git commits.

For documentation (especially on large projects or with multiple contributors) it’s probably better to look into generators that scan your code for DocBlocks. Haven’t really found the need for it in themes/plugins because the if you’re already writing the DocBlock that’s usually enough documentation for simple things.

In many countries it’s illegal to sell a gift card that expires.

If that’s the business plan, put the money in the bank and open a beer. At least that’ll solve the stress part.

Contact the author of the themes, this is a general forum for all ThemeForest users.

Envato recently added { -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased; } which makes text extremely thin on non-Retina Macs running Chrome/Safari/Opera. I’m squinting just writing this.

Surprised nobody has mentioned this yet. It’s been a few days. This hack was popular a few years ago to make web fonts render thinner, but I rarely see it used anymore. The noticeable color shift is a side effect.

Now we’re stuck with it I guess.
