while I agree with some of your points I disagree with your “plugin compatibility” sorry to say but most free plugins arent coded properly while themes should work with some of the more popular plugins(all in one seo, wp total cache, contact form 7 etc) its impossible to get some of the more advanced themes to work 100% with all plugins nor is it realistic to have authors test there themes will a lot of plugins you could spend weeks doing so, and in the end how many end users “use” the plugin
well I am not mentioning ALL plugins. WP has e very well written dev guide for plugins and themes. If the theme is properly built, than any properly built plugin should work without a problem. And I have seen crazy tweaked Themes still supporting valid written plugins.
The point is that the authors want to speed up the release time-frame and omit or sacrifice important stuff. Again, not all of the authors and not in each and every theme.
For me TOP means top in every way, not just in the look (the look is the hook for the clients but the code is the marriage material).
This is my first complaint about an author on all Envato marketplaces. I am totally disappointed from particular TF author. I purchased a theme from them with huge hesitation because previously I purchased another theme from the same author and the first work wasn’t good either.
Their work is AWFUL , VERY VERY AWFUL (I purchased many templates from 3 different Envato accounts so I know what AWFUL is and what is not). Their themes are falling apart as far as you start modifying them. I am not talking about some huge modifications – only content tweaking.
I spent 10 hours just to install that theme. As soon as I install a plug-in and the whole theme is gone (500 error). Plug-ins which usually work on other themes here they simply can’t. I asked them to help me and they did a good job installing the theme for me. But come on, if I have to put 2 lines of copy/text and I have to send them a message through their contact form I’ll simply give up. It is too much.
And this is a top Author. It is shameful to have this garbage work on Themeforest and to be promoted as TOP . It is simply not true.
In another theme the authors removed completely the Footer section of their theme (bang – http://codex.wordpress.org/Stepping_Into_Templates ). Third theme had modifications of the jQuery core plug-in (bang) for compatibility purposes.
I really would appreciate if both TF reviewers and authors lift up the bar in one direction CODING : USABILITY, INTEGRITY , WELL CODED AND documented themes. Please pay special attention on plugins compatibility. Most of the themes are very weak in this point.
This is just an effort to help you all.
congrats dude! And make some time for yourself.
I’ll just type: H
I think your H is VERY overpriced. when I was buying VW Jetta I wanted some new cheap car and the H was on the list. But when comparing the options and features the H didn’t even get close to Jetta. The price of H also was much higher. Seriously. I am talking about the USA . Here the Jetta models are different than in Europe.
Buy brand new Volkswagen Jetta! Without a doubt this is the best quality for the money Today! In the range $20-$23K you can buy WV with features and options of $40K car. Don’t waste money on brand. Buy Jetta 2011!
You’ll save on maintanance too cos it is new – 3 years peace of mind!
I own 2010 Jetta and speechless. Never thought they are sooo good. My prev car was VW GTI but could say the Jetta is wayyy much better. German quality. comfortable drive. sport mode. many many things in this car. Go for Jetta 2011!
Hey guys just a questions!
I know you are fellas, mates, buddies and we are a huge united community.
I just saw all these threads about huge achievements and realized that I do not have in my entire life even a single thread about an achievement, so I think you can help me.
I have $800 to go for a silver paw. Could you please help me?
Once when I reach the goal I’ll make a thread and will mention your help and we will celebrate together!
Hi guys! I’m so excited! I finally got my Ultra Violet badge and racked up 456,349 sales! I have about 9 million followers and I referred more than 5000 members.
That’s not true!!!! You made only 167 and have 46 followers.
Now who is going to buy me a new sport car?
I knew, all these achievement threads are fake!
If you can’t afford a sport car, I accept iPad too! So do not make me sad again!
