it would be better to work on those unnecessary buttons too.

One problem at a time! I’m doing some digging around on the Get Hosting button.

Hi 23andwalnut, if you click on the item’s Download button, you will then see the option to download the License Certificate.

Perfect. Thanks. I didn’t realize it was a dropdown.

We realised we were able to do this pretty easily on WordPress themes because we’ve already asked the author to provide a separate installable zip file in addition to the “main file” zip at upload.

Will this result in authors having to update their themes if they submitted before the mandatory separate theme zip upload was introduced? Cheers

I spoke with Jarel in the review team yesterday, all WordPress themes should now have this file in place, so there’s no additional work to do there.

Thanks for clearing that up! Great work guys, it will make my job in the support forums a lot easier!

Good news! Is this only for wordpress only? Can we have it for Joomla also?
Is this an equally common/painful problem with Joomla as it is with WordPress?

In every handful of buyers, I do get 1 or 2 who try to install the entire zip as a template and get the ‘JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find XML setup file’ message. For now I can handle that with a good documentation or faq but in future would be nice to have.

regards
