I’m not sure Envato are running online ads – I haven’t seen any in a long time.
This is a general forum – you would be better asking the author of your theme directly via the method outlined under the support tab for the item.
That’s a message from your server saying you don’t have enough memory – contact your hosting company with the message to get them to increase your limits.
Well done Adam and team! Much deserved
So for example you design a site in photoshop and sell the rights to it. Is that what you mean? If so, you sold the rights, you have no claim. They can convert in to anything they wish, unless you state in your legal document of transfer of rights that it only applies to say HTML only, not CMS systems. But that would lower your price and buyer pool considerably, obviously.
Has anyone looked at the bundle? There are no products from any marketplace, just outside offers. It actually contains products that are somewhat competition to products sold on the marketplaces. Basically, it’s a cash grab.
imho plugins shouldn’t be in themes, authors should make a theme compatible which then shows on the “compatible with:” information and then the buyer can decide to buy the plugin for the theme, which brings the following benefits:
1) Plugins are separate from theme so buyers get license for plugin from the author without asking author (and updates are directly from the plugin author)
2) Envato make more money, instead of 1 purchase of the plugin for a theme, buyers buy separate license for the plugin
3) Authors don’t need to support / fix / update someone elses plugin
4) It actually makes the themes better as a theme can’t be built on a plugin exclusively so themes will go back to being about design and not “plugin stuffing”5) Authors can’t try and outdo each other with “get $600 in free plugins” as they will all only be able to say “we are compatible with xx theme (like you already do for woocommerce etc)
Yup but it’s one of the many reasons ThemeForest became successful for Envato (bundling of stuff at low prices). Unfortunately, as many have tried before, including myself, they will not change on the subject of allowing this even though all your points are very valid and have been mentioned several times.
I find it a little bizarre why they haven’t tested this before 4.3 was released.
I have requested a staff reply for you – hang tight!
The examples of cars, while a good comparison, are incorrect as the Bentley etc. are a higher quality build and materials, MP themes are not higher quality necessarily, just more demos and features via plugins. We should be clear on that I think.
Anyways, it looks like we got the answer. Nothing will change as Envato see it differently than the rest of us.
