I think it isn’t allowed.
However, you say similar designs – that’s an endless discussion.
What could be the case though is that you see same the designs in different versions. For example first a PSD design template, then that same design is submitted as an HTML template and also that same design is submitted as a WordPress theme, which is totaly fine.
What about it?
It’s like suddenly everyone is asking theme related support questions at this forum.
When you post a new thread you see the “Start Thread” title above the form. Maybe there should be some message under the title that says something like “For theme related questions contact the author or use the items’ comment section” or something…
Maybe it helps reduse theme related support questions.
BORED… Seen such messages a thousand times
You are right though, but don’t expect this message will help in any way since there are allready been countless threads about it.
Best thing you could do as a customer is to keep away from from all the similar looking themes, spend a little more time searching for more unique ones ( i know, time is valuable ) and use them for your projects. This way authors with more unique themes feel satisfied and will continue creating those.
Besides that you can’t ignore and do anything about the fact that it’s also buyers’ who make certain trends popular. And if a certain trend sells there will come more and more items which follow that trend – to sell.
Envato should step up and immediatly block such ‘buyers’ since they are making useless threats against authors!
Making threats shouldn’t be allowed.
I see now in WordPress 3.9 the tinymce version has no fontsize or more color options? Why is this removed? So stupid.
Any way to get it back with a nice native function?
Bitcoin is such an unstable value i would never allow to be paid in bitcoin. it’s useless
I am just waiting for the day the multipurpose madness will be cured. For the day when people won’t treat their site like a McDs meal. But this is just daydreaming (or evening dreaming)
90 out of 100 themes are just using the term ‘multipurpose’ because the theme isn’t really for anything specifiek and has a generic look, which is not bad per se. But this way every generic looking theme is a ‘multipurpose’ theme.
There aren’t many REAL multipurpose themes out there ( which is good since then a theme would be really bloated with options )
Anps saidWhere can I purchase a theme that includes this? Please provide a link!
Guess there will come i time people will offer a neck massage and a free paint of your apartment if you buy there theme
@FinalDestiny: I agree that it’s our items but it’s against the rules. I may do this on my own website or on my support forum but I can’t advertise it on my ThemeForest item description page.I remember I’ve read it somewhere on knowledge base.
It’s only against the rules to ‘promote’ services like that ‘on themeforest’.
If people buy your theme and end up on your own site, you may offer them whatever you want – envato has nothing to do with that.
But besides that, tommusrhodus has a point. But nothing to do about it except making sure that author’s aren’t promoting it on themeforest.
