Happens every time for me.

I assume someone already submitted a ticket. I don’t want to flood support with the same ticket over and over, but this does really need to be resolved as it looks really unprofessional with either duplicate comments everywhere or all sorts of flagged comments.

Can someone confirm they’ve submitted a support request and then update us when you hear back? Thanks!

Not to mention, imagine the blowback from the community if Envato launched a merch store without first resolving all the most-wanted features for the existing marketplaces. That’s got to be the priority.
I don’t think I agree with you on that one. The community is smart enough to realise that releasing a merch store would not mean that all the devs suddely dropped their usual (and important!) tasks. Merch would definitely be well-received ;)

Of course, certainly many authors would understand that :)

But every time something new is launched that isn’t one of the top 5 most requested features, various authors come out of the woodwork saying “why are you wasting your time on X when we need search/shopping cart/cats on roombas??”.

They may be a vocal minority, but there are plenty of people around here who would see a merch store as a distraction from where the focus “should” be.

Anyway, I’m really not arguing against a merch store – I’d be happy to see one. I’m just trying to provide some explanation for those who are wondering why it hasn’t become a reality as to why (1) it may not be as simple in reality as it sounds in theory, and (2) given that it’s unlikely to be as highly profitable as Envato’s other endeavors and they have more important things to focus on, (3) it likely isn’t a priority. That’s all :)

Man i still cant find my old comments. When i hover over my username or pic it doesn’t give me any option to see my old posts. This should be easily visible in the dashboard.

there are a lot of t-shirt creator-franchises that will do all the hardware stuff for you.

Certainly. My point is not that it isn’t possible, but that it likely isn’t profitable, and therefore not a priority for Envato :)

Not to mention, imagine the blowback from the community if Envato launched a merch store without first resolving all the most-wanted features for the existing marketplaces. That’s got to be the priority.

Outsourcing the project seems like a simple solution, but I think it would be foolish for a company with assets like Envato to give up even partial control over distribution of its trademark, so I certainly don’t blame them for not going that route.

The system infrastructure for manufacturing, storing, and internationally distributing hard goods is much more complicated than just setting up an ecommerce site :) It may well be that such a system wouldn’t be profitable/worth the investment for Envato.

Not saying I wouldn’t like to see it happen, but I’m guessing Envato has better prospects for turning a profit than selling t-shirts, so it probably isn’t too high on the priority list :)

This is exactly why we shouldn’t be bundling plugins in with theme packages. Because when you distribute code with your theme, it becomes part of your product, and you do take on responsibility for that code.

Instead, themes authors should be able to recommend compatible plugins in a structured way, which customers can purchase individually – or as a discounted bundle with the theme (the revenue from which would be shared between theme and plugin author), but still obtain licenses for individual plugins.

The current system is just a race to stash the most premium plugins in a theme, and everyone loses.

Whoa – did you get licensing from Envato to use their logo and trademark?

And did you get permission from staff to advertise on the forums?

You never actually defined/initialized $html before accessing it. Just add

$html = '';

before your if statement and you should be good to go

(the warning message actually tells you exactly what is going on: the variable, $html, which is used in those lines indicated, has not been defined – you just need to define it before you use it)

Any chance what’s actually going on is that they’re copying the text out of the email alert, which would likely contain plaintext of whatever you posted in the content (therefore including the HTML tags)?

That sucks – some people just don’t get it and/or don’t have a conscience about these things. I feel your pain, having been in similar situations before. It’s incredibly frustrating.

Regardless, it is against the community guidelines to call out other authors/products in the forum – this just isn’t the right place for it. So I’m going to lock this up.

Like you said, you’ve submitted a ticket to support, so they’ll deal with it through that channel – good luck! :)

EDIT: aaaaaand Travis beat me to it ;)
