ryankett saidAll Themeforest items are required to include documentation and most people include installation instructions (I certianly do). Even with the readme and the step by step installation instructions you get buyers uploading the entire download zip file.
Yeah, or you could put a readme file or pdf in with your themes which explains installation? (and yes, I do know how to install a wordpress theme, it took me 30 seconds to work out that there was a zip inside of a zip, lol).
Yes there is a possibility the other versions will be rejected. Each category has it’s own standards so getting an item accepted in one does not guarantee the same design will be accepted in another.
They can do it with the regular license because the theme is only being used on one installation. If they were to sell another website using the theme they would have to buy another regular license and so on and so on.
A theme won’t be rejected for having a fixed height header.
I’m not a tax expert but from what I understand monthly expenses can be written of as operating costs but fixed costs from purchases fall under capital gains so can not be written off as business expenses as easily.
If your shortcode is just css styling on an element it is better to use a custom format instead of a shortcode. I would guess the reason authors use shortcodes is out of habit.
My guess would be that you need to assign your portfolio post to a category.
If you post your question on the items comments page I will be happy to help.
From my experience progressive enhancement has not caused more support questions because most buyers do not further test their website in multiple browsers and those that do are clued up enough to understand why there are differences between older and newer browsers. There will always be a few who raise the issue but not enough for it to be a problem.
For a browser to be compatible it just shouldn’t be broken. By that I mean that as long as it displays correctly (whatever that means to your specific theme) it is compatible. Marketplace rules are that compatibility with IE 6 and 7 are not required however most people do support IE7 by choice as it’s good for business.
The template must work in IE8 but that does not mean it has to look exactly the same as it does in all other browsers.
