“Envato does not force you to have any personal information across all marketplace” ==> Yes. But then the result is: living a secritive life.

I thought this was want you wanted: some sort of secret life (at least in terms of earnings). Anyway, I’m done with this thread… I already made my point of view clear so no need to keep repeating myself.
Good luck with everything AnonymousAuthor ;)

Nevertheless I think that removing the revenue badge from an author could perfectly be an option, but all the remaining, pleeeease keep it as is.
I completely agree. What would you say to this concept? http://marketplaceauthor.wordpress.com/2014/02/21/open-letter-to-envato-make-marketplaces-a-safe-place-for-authors/
It’s a way how sales could be display – solution which wouldn’t affect authors in any way. It’s an optional feature – only those who want or need it would turn it on.

I think that is unnecessary and it does not seem to solve the security problem that you seem to have.
Once again, hiding the badges does not affect how the marketplace works so I am ok with it. For all the rest, leave it as it is… If you are concerned about security, Envato does not force you to have any personal information across all marketplace, so why should you place it?
In the end I think the solution of your problem is in your hands ;)

im afraid to let my kids go to school alone cuz someone may kidnap them and ask me for my EARNINGS. – some of those who are not fathers/mothers, they don’t really know how it feels.

This is obviously scary and nobody wants to have this feeling.
But tell me one thing: How do those people know about your earnings? Do they come to themeforest and see how much you earn? If yes, who told them that “you were you”?
Honestly, I think that kidnappers don’t come here and see your badge… What they do is see where you live, what care you drive, etc…
But, like I said before, I think that the revenue badge should be optional.

I think that if you want to keep your info private it is actually simple: don’t place any links on your profile page. That way you don’t have to tell who you are to nobody. Period.
Now, if you want to tell your family and friends what you do and who you are here or you think that you should have some sort of links on your profile page, then you will have to live and deal with it.
In my opinion one of the reasons that this website is huge it is because it shows how much times a product has been sold. If you remove this info I think the whole marketplace will lose influence.
Nevertheless I think that removing the revenue badge from an author could perfectly be an option, but all the remaining, pleeeease keep it as is.

xml import is best for importing pages and posts, there are problems when you try to insert using database options, when you save sql dump in a file , if there are extra characters present it won’t work and manipulating core tables is not recommended ;) . Best way is to export as encoded text even serialized string wont work if there is a new line.
Nobody spoke about using SQL dump or SQL instructions… I think that it is not even allowed as you can see here: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/472/85/wordpress-theme-submission-requirements . At a certain point you have this rule: The database shouldn’t be accessed or modified directly. If there is a defined function that can get the data you need, that must be used instead. Use $wpdb and its methods to interface with the database instead of rolling your own.

So, as an example, here’s how I add a page:

$new_page_title = 'About Us';
$new_page_content = 'This is the page content';
$new_page = array(
'post_type' => 'page',
'post_title' => $new_page_title,
'post_content' => $new_page_content,
'post_status' => 'publish'
);
$new_page_id = wp_insert_post($new_page);

Pretty simple, huh?

Wordpress allows us to enter posts, pages, custom post types and other into the database so that is basically what I do with some PHP instructions. We can even add images to the media library and connect them to posts using their ID.
As far as I know this is better than XML import, because it works everywhere.

I’m not sure about this, but I think that those themes were added according to a thread that was opened here by a staff member. I think we (authors) were supposed to add links to our themes if they have that functionality.
I have one on the list, but would like to add another so let me know if you get an extra ticket to the party :D

I just tested it locally and it is fine. You are getting an array so you can output your attributes like this:

echo $stripped_vc_tab ['title'];
echo $stripped_vc_tab ['tab_id'];
echo $stripped_vc_tab ['icon'];
