This is not allowed, the banner has been removed. We’re particularly careful with these banners but things like this can slip easily. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the reply @Ivor. The banner has been removed by the author (the same author posted the update here, we appreciate his honesty) but the complains go beyond a banner advertising, is about Envato allowing selling multi themes products. Please read the previous comments in this thread to see what I mean.

Note: is not about being rude with other authors, is about how Envato as a company allows compete very different kind of products in same categories.

Theme bundles vs Single themes. Is just not fair.

Just about every theme with “multiple demos” breaks Envato’s stance on bundling themes in one package. Not only is that devastating for authors (because why buy a single theme for $48 when you can buy 23–in–one for $58), but it’s destroying the market in general – as we’ll all have to transition to this, or fall off the radar. Envato has been slipping up big time (purposely because they’re sales are so high) and now we’re past the point of no-return.

Things like this will be the death of themeforest in the long run, this needs to stop

Not only will it be the death of ThemeForest in the end but it’s seriously harming the theme eco system in general and de-valuing the entire market. This is doing no favors to anyone.

Based on my single experience with submitting a WP theme and getting a hard reject (http://goo.gl/nVI6Kk) I can tell you that theme reviews are very brief.

My theme was reviewed by someone in Malaysia using a small MacBook and he/she only had a single page view (i.e. the homepage). So basically, if your homepage does not have enough bells & whistles to catch the reviewer’s attention in the first 10-15 seconds you’re outa here.

Considering that it took two and a half days for the reviewer to be able to devote 15 sec to look at my theme, I’d say they get tons of submissions and don’t have the luxury of looking beyond the homepage to form a first impression.
Oh, I think thats me.

I am personally not a fan of multipurpose themes for the following reasons:

1) They are bloated and tend to load slower than a single-theme, this is due to an increase in the number of scripts used

2) They can be confusing for clients, most of my clients just want to be able to edit the text and a few colours and not have to deal with different layouts, different header styles etc

3) They aren’t brandable, if I buy a single niche theme e.g. a kindergarten I can brand this to my clients business, the multipurpose themes tend to be bland and boring (imho)

4) From a developers pov, if a client wants a certain feature added / removed, it can be a pain to find the right template and the right line of code as it’s just a jumble of functions doing if elses of the theme options,

I always get my clients to choose niche themes related to their industry as (in my opinion) they are better designed (for their purpose) and aren’t trying to do 10 other things.

There is a market for multipurpose themes but I find it’s the “noob buyers” who aren’t sure what they want and just buy the theme with the most options so they can test out every option.
