Hi Syamil,

Correct…

It is common when a company has bigger customer base, they need more resources for support… For DO case, their support is less responsive lately, for sure…

I also can feel that “elastic search” email is a generic answer template from their support…

For my personal stuff, I moved from DO to Linode last month… Their price is competitive now… Their documentation / library is better (DO is community-driven documentation)... And, their support is better, I think…

Hi Syamil,

Really sorry to hear that…

This is exactly what happened to us also…

I noticed that our websites were down yesterday. Our big team has a big droplet on DigitalOcean to host all of our websites…

I talked to our team and our friend who handle the server said that our droplet was suspended… :(

Okay, stay calm…

The first email said that DO got complaint from Bank of America said that one of our websites host phishing page of them…

The second email said that one or some of our websites become DDOS attack source, possibly because of elasticsearch vulnerability… We also do not believe that we have elasticsearch installed…

Then, we jump to conclusion that one of our websites was hacked! And the hacker uses our website to generate bad traffic for his bad purposes…

We keep communicating with them, and in our conversation we find that the phishing page is on one of our “old” WordPress demo website… This subdomain is no longer maintained, so it still use an old version of WordPress…

We know that old WordPress version is full of vulnerabilities… So, it can be a door for hacker to hack our website and use it for bad purposes…

Our dropplet was still suspended, but DO give access via console… Then our team can “remove” this subdomain to fix this issue…

And, finally… our websites are back online again last night before Netherland vs Argentina match… :-D

Lesson Learned

1) DigitalOcean (and also Linode) is “Unmanaged” VPS hosting… So, we are fully responsible with what happened with our server… We are glad that we have member in our team that has good capability on sysadmin…

2) We need to deactivate / remove our unused / inactive websites…

3) We need to keep our WordPress up to date…

4) We need to keep our WordPress secure…

I am not sysadmin, so I am not the expert on this case, I only share what I heard and I knew… And I hope this reply is useful for you… ;)

BuddyPress plugin (+ some buddypress extensions) will do this job. Envato runs BuddyPress contest now http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/envatos-most-wanted-buddypress-bbpress-themes/117049 . So, it is better for you to check all submitted BuddyPress themes on Feb 5th on ThemeForest.

Basically, this will limit you to run this function on specific content then run something else when it returns true.

I can say, it is allowed, it doesn’t change your content, but it really depends on what is the purpose of using this function on your theme…

if you want to use it to include custom script conditionally when a shortcode is called, then I will not recommend this, because it only limits your shortcode to be used on specific content. for conditional script loading on shortcode, you can directly use wp_enqueue_script inside your shortcode handler. source: http://scribu.net/wordpress/conditional-script-loading-revisited.html

for design, you still need to improve typography, whitespace, etc…

for code, don’t forget to try to validate your html, and also check the responsiveness because you define it to be responsive.

masih belum “pas” mas bro, semangat ya…

@Gewora, I shared my experience on my own theme shop, so yes it is a little bit different… :)

Basically, for ThemeForest case, no need to think about term of use, only focus on support policy. Support is optional, so we are free to create our own support policy.

I was in same situation with you when I opened my own theme shop few years ago. I simply add some notes on “term of use” and “support policy” page that we do not offer support if you use it for any adult/gambling websites. I do still get some people contacted us to request support for this kind of websites, but then I can simply direct them to “that” page and they understand in most cases.

For ThemeForest case, offering a refund basically is not a good idea because sales and refund process are controlled by Envato. We can’t stop them for using our theme on their websites. This is also a good reason to make our themes whitelabel, so no need to worry to see “our” logo on our buyer website. ;)
