Heya, welcome!

Reviews can take some time, so I wouldn’t worry about it currently taking 4 days.

I’d say you should get concerned when you hit the 10-12 day mark without a response.

Hope this helps, welcome, and good luck! :)

The Extended License permits this, but only when the Author has given their consent (in addition to the extended license): http://codecanyon.net/licenses/faq#small-element-stock-a - Christian

Thanks for clarifying that, I was always under the impression content wasn’t needed. In that case, may I make a suggestion that next to the tick icon that is in the extended column and the use in an end product row that you have an astericks which stats consent from author required?

So if I bought an item from the CSS category on CodeCanyon such as a mega menu, I can use this item as part of an item I could sell on CodeCanyon, as long as I have an extended license and that my product was of something greater than just a mega menu, for example a CRM system.
False, you can only do this with the written permission of the original files author, some may wish to go for a % share system rather than an extended sale, this is totally up to the original author.

Feel free to quote where it states this on the license page: http://codecanyon.net/licenses.

It states extended license can be “Use[d] in an end product that’s sold (more than one end user allowed)” Which means I could buy an item with an extended license, and use it in my project and sell on here.

First thing to check is that they haven’t purchased an extended license which allows them to sell your script as part of their own product. For example, if they add some extra functionality, this will be allowed within the realms of an extended license.
Totally false. You are not allowed to do this. Even if you purchase an extended license you still need the author’s permission to do stuff like this.

I believe you are incorrect here. The License details page state that an item bought with an Extended license can be “Use in an end product that’s sold (more than one end user allowed)”

Have you have any extended license purchases, and if so, was the date before the date this item was first added to CodeCanyon?

Irrespective of what they’ve said about being inspired, they could still have bought an extended license, but just forgotten etc?

Hope you get this sorted

You need save the $firstname variables into the class’s public variables by doing this instead:

$this->firstname = $firstname; $this->lastname = $lastname; $this->age = $age;


Then when you need to use that variable, you use $this->firstname instead of $firstname->$firstname

Yes, by the looks of that picture it’s probably a 50mm 1.8. I owned a 50mm 1.4 and that created more blur that than, basically when I took a picture of a face straight on the nose would be in focus and the rest would start to blur.

Have a search on Flickr for photos taken with a 50mm 1.4

I’ve had this on one or two occasions, so I always ensure they’re a genuine buyer before asking for post-support.

However saying that, I am very polite and subtle about it because on a few occasions people do buy using a different account and then submit a question via another (for example a developer asking for support from their account when using an item purchased via their client). I kind of play it dumb like “Oh, for some reason it says you haven’t bought the item yet?” or “I can’t seem to locate your purchase history for that item” etc.

tl;dr Be vigilant, but be subtle, as people often buy with another account and request support from another and are still genuine buyers

Why not just get a Dropbox plugin and put the files in Dropbox and organise via folders on there?

On another note, to display PDFs in browser I highly recommend PDF.js which is what Mozilla use in Firefox to display PDFs and it’s awesome.

Opinions. User’s are entitled to their opinion and people’s standards are different. One persons 5 star is another’s 3 star. I think contacting the buyer to asking about ratings has zero benefit for the buyer and is a purely selfish and ego driven motive; what will the buyer benefit from you e-mailing, apart from taking up their time? If it were a 1 star and a comment implied they didn’t understand or see the full potential of the item, then fair enough, but it isn’t the case here.
