pfft 30% drop you say. I’ll just leave this here – note the day of the start of the massive drop (same for all my items btw):

You can not ….. change the rules later. I do not know that way of doing business!
Welcome to the author’s world at themeforest where the rules are changing.
Hi! A sell is a contract :-) Rules could be changed. Contracts couldn’t be changed “à la carte”.

Hi

No a ‘sell’ is as-is as defined in the agreement as a buyer and seller as per the rules at Envato. There is no contract at all between any party here.

Maybe I’m not fully understanding, but any theme will allow you to do this by using the blog as categories / sub categories and simply placing links to documents in the posts. You could then use a sitemap page to list your categories and you’re done.

I guess, he meant more like an intranet theme for internal office work where colleagues can open the documents which will be posted. But those documents should open in word, excel etc respective of their file types.

More like a knowledgebase theme.

Right but you’re never going to be able to create a theme that if it’s a link to an excel document that would open Excel via the browser on a computer. Therefore any theme, using posts, in categories as I mentioned will work.

Hi Stephen – thanks so much for following up on this and getting the update in. I look forward to hearing back what you find out about the notification of updates if possible.

Again thank you.

Thanks for jumping in Stephen, I appreciate it!

Another thing to mention, as none of this is automatic (and probably should not be), is getting notification to authors on their dashboard that new updated ‘compatible with’ is available. It would help an enormously. Often when it does change nobody knows :) Therefore one of those nice author dashboard things Envato likes to popup to let us know badges are updated would be extremely helpful – something like:

We just updated the ‘Compatible With’ section of items with the following:

WooCommerce 2.2.x EDD 2.X

etc.

That way authors get notification and can act on the information and update to ensure their products (if compatible) are displayed with the correct info.

Thanks

Jonathan

Quick question for Collis please. What about US based affiliates? Will they not have to submit their information also?

Collis, could you please answer the following question – I live in the United states but I’m not a citizen or resident nor I fall under any point on W-9 form list so I’m not legally required to acquire a taxpayer ID (although I still can do it voluntarily). Now, would you force me to acquire taxpayer ID or would I have any other problems as such when requesting my payments by the end of the month? Thanks.

Thanks for the link, Organicbee, really appreciate it. However this matter has been on my sight since the day I’m in the US and I’m quite familiar with the taxation law statements provided in the link. Still, I don’t fall under any category here as I don’t have a U.S. source income so question remains open.

2. A nonresident alien individual who is not engaged in a trade or business in the United States and has U.S. income on which the tax liability was not satisfied by the withholding of tax at the source.

I believe as Envato do not hold the taxes and pay them on your behalf you are still liable – best for you to contact a tax professional really but that’s what it seems like to me.
