Unfortunately it doesn’t seam like we will ever get a solution on this issue!
I have some interesting stats on one of our popular plugins, which a lot of customers use for their clients websites. As we are not allowed to do self promoting I won’t mention the name of the plugin, but it is a plugin that lets you customize the wp-admin in WordPress. This is something that is very useful when you create websites for clients.
The plugin has been sold 2,010 times, but we know for a fact that there is currently 13,096 copies of the plugin installed.
My question is could this have been avoided that for every copy of this plugin sold it is on average installed on 6.5 websites? Could the number have been lower if we were able to offer discount on multiple purchases or offer a developer license that would fairly priced?
@Yatek it is definitely a bad idea to include your own jQuery or force the use of a specific version. As OriginalEXE says WordPress includes its own jQuery.
This is one of the most common errors we experience with plugins and themes. Whether you want to help your client and fix the error, so your plugin works is up to you!
We do help our customers even though the error is not in our plugin
@mchelle .. should the user be able to upload only one image at a time and set the title and caption or upload multiple images ?
The problem with allowing uploading multiple images is that users would be able to completely flood the gallery!
We have created a plugin that works with our Easy Visualization Tools for WordPress, so that you can use the Google Chart Tools to visualize your earnings. Check out the plugin on our website. Or send us a PM and we can send the Envato API plugin to you.

I spoke with Collis personally a few days ago and brought this up. He said that that is definitely not true, and if it is, it shouldn’t be. Authors are more than welcome to include auto updaters. I include auto updaters in all of my new plugins.
I’m glad that you were able to get an answer from him. Maybe they can make it official because I’m really tired of not being able to get an answer. This is the latest of many emails I’ve received from Envato concerning this.
It does say that an approval is on the way, but still nothing official. We’ve only been asking for this for 12+ months now.
However this is good then we can get started implementing auto updaters in all our plugins.

Some authors on Codecanyon have implemented automatic update into their plugins just like when you download a free plugin from wordpress.org. Other authors including our self offer a “update notification” and then you will need to go to your Codecanyon account and download the plugin again.
Unfortunately this is not the ideal situation, but officially we are not allowed to offer automatic updates. Rumors say that Envato is working on something similar to the automatic update they offer for WordPress themes on themeforest.
I would encourage you as a customer to request Envato to speed this up.
for TF it’s already possible using API , no luck for CC though
I got an answer from support just a few days ago that we are not allowed to do it with Codecanyon (WordPress plugins).
That is great news that this is possible now on Themeforest for WordPress themes. Then there might be light at the end of the tunnel!
