I see no reason why you should check if dynamic_sidebar function is defined.

It’s in the WordPress since 2.2.0, I would understand if it’s a recent addition but in this case it makes no sense.

It’s as if we would be required to check if WP_Query class exists before using it.

I don’t think you can trigger the modal through link. You could however link at least to that specific block: http://graphicriver.net/downloads#item-XXXXX

Replace XXXXX with the id of the item (id is the number visible in the item url at the very end).

I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but what is need is paid updates :)
What about bug fixes? Why should I pay if the item had a bug in to begin with?

You can say the same thing when you buy a MacBook, and after your guarantee expires something breaks down. Why should you pay for it? The issue was there from the start.

As you see, your argument makes no sense. If you want further updates and bugfixes, you renew your licence and you are covered, just like you can buy an extended guarantee for your MacBook.

The thing is that some of those things should not be in the theme, but plugins instead.

I’m sure if WARP framework was in a separate plugin that only enhances your base theme when activated, it would be approved.

You can upload any number of items for review, no need to wait until current one is completed.

No, you can’t. PHP executes on the server, not on the client. You need JS (or pure CSS for very simple stuff) to provide interaction for your website.

I don’t know what tool they are using, it seems it’s a Chrome extension (there is one for Firefox named XSS ME which simulates XSS injection).... But I know another tool I was using long time ago, it’s called Accunetix and it gives you exact indications about the vulnerable code and the type of possible attacj, generating also reports. It’s commercial, but they have a 14 days trial: https://www.acunetix.com/free-network-security-scanner/

I doubt it’s any kind of tool, reviewer probably just entered a usual javascript alert() somewhere in the theme input and it was not escaped properly, hence the alert.

“WHAT SOFTWARE WILL YOU BE USING FOR THE NEW FORUMS?”

I bet it’s discourse, since you already have ruby developers on team :)

Designer can become a coder but a coder cannot become a designer.

That is not really true. It’s an individual stuff and it depends on what kind of brain you had luck to be born with. If you are creative, you will of course more easily become a great designer. If you are a logical thinker, you will have no problem with developing your coding skills.

That said, both skills can be learned through hard work and practice, it just depends on your brain how much time it will require you to reach certain lvl of skill.


Design requires a lot of creative thinking and everyone cannot be creative.
Coding requires a lot of logical thinking, and not everyone is wired that way, so again, it all depends on the individual, but everything can be mastered with enough time.

Creativity comes directly from your heart.
Our hearts are great and we should be thankful to them, but certainly not for anything related to your behaviour. The only thing that comes out of your heart is blood :)

To sum up, both (good) coding and (good) designing is hard, and it depends on your brain how easy it is for you to master it, so I doubt we can objectively conclude which one is harder.
