Is it just me or does this feel like a different PSD with a few bits of text added on?

There is just no logical symmetry or consistency between the entire thing and then those green unusual font choice titles?

The main site is definitely outdated and you need to host it but as a design if you were to remove the green bits and go back a few years it would not that bad.

Right now it just feels like another file that has had those section heading and the blog dates added.

With all due respect this is not rocket science code BUT getting emails right and working in just the core email clients can be challenging.

It takes a lot more than following a tutorial to be able to produce functional email templates up to the standard required for here, let alone support them if they break or suffer from problems in Outlook or Gmail etc.

Also if you want to sell here you really need to consider coding with a builder in mind if you want to compete with other files already for sales which almost all use StampReady or similar.

Good luck

I’m 99% sure that selling accounts is forbidden except in very unique circumstance and with all due respect ....


Sales are bad yes, and my products are old… I no longer feel proud of my work. I want to start from scratch

It does not really sound very desirable or promising to a potential buyer if the author themselves feels the files are outdated

Actually you get far more than what you pay for on themeforest. No place else will you get the same value, so good luck.

+1 AND more


Thanks for all those precious advice and suggestions. Under any condition, it is natural for a consumer to expect value for money and not redundant lectures. Will figure out an alternative. For sure not the envato market anymore!

You are not getting redundant lectures – you have one of the biggest authors on here and moderator staff explaining how to resolve the issue.

Your code don’t validate – a lot of errors and warnings

Various typography needs work throughout

icons too small esp. in donation/funding

there is a lot going on but v important to get quality or quantity

It looks better

Still not a fan of the massive logo and empty space around it.

You need to validate your code – lots of avoidable issues that will cause rejection

If you contacted support then thats the right thing to do BUT bear in mind that support and/or updates are not a requirement.

Also, frustrating though it may be, it would be impossible for envato to disable themes that are not updated etc. as there are numerous ones that (not all cases of course) still work on the latest version even if the item info has not been updated in some time. This means that they would need to check every file after each update which is not feasible.

Who did you ask for support envato or the author? envato have nothing to do with this.

Support is not mandatory and completely at the discretion of the author UNLESS you paid (extra) for it to be installed?

i know that it’s not too fair, but isnt better to sell one template rather than nothing ?

It depends how you look at it.

At the same time you could ask “how many full price sales will be lost doing it this way and if everyone could purchase the file for a fraction of the price?”

I am having the same issue. Another designer purchased a theme for my client and failed to deliver the work. We got the clone of the site, but no license, no purchase code. We cannot access the developer resources. The clients paid the developer and should have access to the full resources for the theme. This seems very very deceptive bordering on a legal issue on many fronts.

In this case it may be bordering on a legal case but between the original designer and the client.

Of course this is not a good position to be in but in fairness without those codes, etc then there is no way that envato could know the full situation or be involved.
