Possible or not – I just don’t get why someone who cannot design or develop (which almost certainly means that how they “envisage” a design is all wrong) wants to or is trying to launch themselves in a marketplace designed for industry pros or at least experienced amateurs.

I’m also still curious how your profile and website advertises professional digital services yet you need a freelancer from here, and (with respect) areof the naive/insane opinion that this is a good idea.

I don’t get it – your website/profile etc. says:

"Hostbili web service is best service in india. we provide website development, designing, hosting, seo, online marketing and more"

So you have your own dev and design people? Then you do not need to pay a freelancer from here right?

We could not agree more with this thread.

Of course there are things that go wrong, of course things could be improved – thats the same in ANY marketplace and it does not justify the bashing envato gets sometimes on here.

I would add one thing which is the ‘narrow mindedness’ and ‘sense of entitlement’ that we see in some posts:

Again some of the suggestions and concerns are very much valid but too often many seem to overlook common sense and the logical process and requirements involved in achieving these.

E.g. Envato is a huge network across the world and making even the smallest changes let alone those that involve altering agreements, policies, prices are a big undertaking with a lot of considerations that take time to implement and that appear to sometimes be disregarded by some users.

Bits are better e.g. the footer but there’s still room for improvement throughout esp. The typography is certain elements and the fact that it feels like loads of ‘bits’ thrown together rather than a logical reason, purpose or flow behind each section

At the end of the day you will go forever asking for feedback here and would do better to submit it and see how the reviewers respond

p.s. out of interest if you cannot speak English how are you managing documentation etc?

This would possibly work well http://nunforest.com/koncept/ but no one credible is going to customise it for $30 too.

Besides if they are ‘A client website’ is customising it not your responsibility?

Forgive the development beginner comments…

http://every.themestudio.net/# In the portfolio the details side in very smoothly on the page with no real header just the X to close.

Is this done using Ajax? It is not a ‘modal’ right? Is it easy to implement in other themes as a sort of “read more” feature? Does anyone know of plugins that do this.

Something like the juicy projects here http://codecanyon.net/item/cube-portfolio-responsive-wordpress-grid-plugin/8534570 but activated from simple buttons rather than having to have gallery

Again sorry for potentially stupid question – I can manage design, UX etc. but development is something new!

Thanks in advance for any help.

You have no buyer badge on your account so the author, charlie4282 or anyone else cannot verify the file license.

Those do not sound like particularly difficult things to adjust but people will be much more willing to help if the purchase is verified.

Unfortunately it will be near on impossible to reason with these people

They will either not care or will have some excuse like “I have no money” or “I can’t afford to buy”.

You could try explaining the time involved in making it, the fact that fake versions won’t update so potentially has a limited lifespan, may contain malicious code and so on.

It really is a shame that so little can be done to prevent it and we’d wish you the best of luck convincing them to buy.

You are missing the point – what is wrong is that you stole & submitted someone else’s work!

There was nothing wrong with the original version (hence why it was accepted) what was wrong is the changes that were made to it

I don’t think people really use portfolio plugins here in themes. Sliders yes but portfolios are pretty much built in normally
