Important Changes to our API

Hi everyone, we’re making some changes to our API that we need to make you aware of. Please see our official announcement on our Market Blog. Here’s a quick overview of the changes we’re making:

  • A user agent is now a requirement when using the API
  • We’re retiring the “current_commission_rate” field (on the “account” method) and the “rate” field (on the “recent sales” method) which may break any tools or services that are currently calling these methods
  • Both of these changes apply to ALL versions of our API and will commence on October 1, 2014. This means, before October 1, 2014, please modify any programs, scripts, apps that use the API otherwise they may stop working as expected.
  • We also have an online survey open. We’d love to know how you use the API, what you use it for, and how we can make it better. You can also complete the form if you’d like to receive future updates about the API.

Please feel free to drop any questions in this thread and we’ll endeavor to help clarify any concerns or answer any questions you may have. Thank you so much for understanding and for your co-operation.

Brand New Hosting Listings Page

Hi everyone! As per our announcement on Envato Notes, we’ve just launched a brand new, dedicated Hosting Services page to provide more hosting options to all our community. This will replace the existing “Get Hosting” button we previously integrated into the Downloads page. Please read the full announcement for more details but we welcome any feedback in this thread. Please note that specific feedback about hosting companies should be shared via our dedicated suggestions form, not directly in our forum thread here. Thank you for your co-operation!

What value does this bring to the community?

Each and every theme and template purchased from ThemeForest needs to be hosted. So, it goes without saying that hosting is an essential part of the Internet. We feel that giving you more information on the hosting providers and having multiple companies compete for your attention will allow you to have a better experience in an industry that at times, can be tough to navigate. Offering a wider selection of hosting options will also introduce savings, discounts and deals to further benefit our community members. And while it may not look like it now, we are also exploring how we can incorporate your reviews and/or ratings for each hosting provider to help further improve the page into a go-to resource for accurate reviews and opinions for each hosting provider. Finally, for authors, we hope that this page will demonstrate to hosting providers the value of partnering with us, and hopefully that will lead to new and exciting revenue opportunities for you.

Hey everyone :),

I want to inform you that we’ve launched Adobe Muse Templates in Themeforest. You can find them here:

With Adobe Muse, you can take a design and create a website without knowledge of HTML, CSS or Javascript. Despite some limitations, Muse offers enough flexibility to create great desktop, mobile and tablet experiences.

Here are a few sites made with Adobe Muse:

If you’re interested in getting started with Muse, there are numerous tutorials online. Here are a few tuts to get you started:

reported an increase of at least 30% in sales
An increase of 30% is not 3 times more, which would be an increase of 300% :)

Hi Ruben,

You’re right, 30% doesn’t mean 300%. The CEO’s #’s included authors outside of Themeforest. After his claim we went through the data for all of our WordPress files and found numbers specific to Themeforest. Themeforest specific increase is on average 3x. This is probably due to to our large international audience. Sorry for not clarifying.

Thanks, Will

Having a theme/plugin published is mandatory to sign up on that developer training?

You’re not required to have a theme/plugin to sign up for the developer training.

Or if you look at a different way, if a theme has multiple languages included, that may simply imply that the author made a bigger effort than one who made a theme without extra languages. In other words, if you include languages, you probably included other cool features too + worked on the site longer, which would ultimately = more sales. Sometimes correlation does not imply causation. :)

I originally attributed this to effort. But during a conversation with the CEO of iCanLocalize, he informed me that developers of themes that had become WPML-compatible reported an increase of at least 30% in sales. The increase came after they added Multilingual support. Thanks for the feedback.
