I hope someone can help. A couple of my theme buyers recently are having a big issue with the Theme Options screen. First, visually, it’s a mess… the CSS file that does the nice tabbed layout is not doing it’s job. It’s as if there is no CSS at all. The CSS file does exist, but when you navigate directly to the CSS file, there is a “file not found” error.

Also, and most importantly, the settings don’t save when you click on the Save button. The page just refreshes, and not settings get saved.

This is so odd. I have thousands of successful installations, but 2 this week are having this odd problem. Does anyone know what could be the fix?

$50 for such this customization? That’s more than what the theme costs!

Phew, I see a couple here older than me! LOL . The first few pages of this thread everyone was in their teens and twenty’s… wow. But the thread is 3 yrs old, so everyone is older now. :)

I’m one of the elders here… 40. Started in basic web development in 1995. In college I was the first person to ever turn in a term paper as a web page/site. (I asked permission first) It had Frames and an animated Gif… LOL ! :)

What to do if all prices have dropped 5$ after the review – now most my themes are priced at 30$ :(

I never even considered some items would be priced less! :( I assumed there would be an overall price bump across the board. (at least for existing items… especially the ones in the top 50 sales)

So I’d like to know:

1. Are existing items getting a price adjustment, or will only newly released themes get this? 2. Could some themes actually be adjusted lower than the current price? 3. I already increased a theme (Price Adjustment Tool) to go from $35 to $40 with great success (it’s making about $850/month extra money for me on one theme alone!) Since it’s now already higher priced than the average, does this mean it will not get a price increase?

Mine is back to original price again. I hope that’s a bug and it will return to the higher price.

Yeah, it’s really weird, our latest theme went from $35 to $45 :|

So it looks like all/most themes will all go up to $45, regardless of whether they were previously $35 or $40. My theme was originally $35, and with the defunct Price Adjustment Tool, raised it to $40.

So it looks like $35 themes will get a beefy $10 increase. $40 themes only an increase of $5. Hope these price increases get finished soon so price won’t be a factor when customers come here choosing a theme.

Woot! Just noticed my main theme went from $40 to now $45! :) The price increases are definitely getting rolled out! :D

I say they should just do a blanket price increase for ALL themes right now. I’m not a coder at Envato, but that seems like just a little tweak in the code. :) If all themes increased an equal amount, then I feel nobody will lose. Then spend effort in the review process to determine the price of new themes.

I think this is a no brainer. A small $5 increase is nothing for almost all buyers… I don’t want to sound like a rich snob, but really, who would complain about $5?! It’s the price of a cheap sandwich! Such a small increase in price has no impact on 99.9% of buyers, yet has a HUGE impact on profits for authors.

It’s also less of an issue for exclusive themes. If a theme were sold here for $5 more than somewhere else, then sure, that could hurt sales. But even if a theme were sold in 2 multiple places, few people would notice that. As Themeforest is the premiere place to shop for themes, I think most people just come here and don’t bother going anywhere else, especially since there is so much to choose from here.

Sure, you could argue that some people buy multiple themes to try out before committing on one. So $5 for each one can add up. But if someone is buying many themes, they can afford a little extra.

I’m sure a $5 increase across the board wouldn’t decrease sales at all. ... The key is that all themes in all categories go up the same relative amount.

I was fortunate enough to get in on the price adjustment tool a few months ago. Sales actually increased, and still months later hasn’t slowed down. I applied to get another increase, but I was too late.
