Sadly Siddhart is no longer reviewer at TF and Kailoon is out until Thursday .. so there’s just Ivor left .. I have something in the queue too ..

It’s not like Envato can’t afford new reviewers but hey, who cares right?

Envato forces us to produce more and more work to get the little exposure we can get.

Exposure now is hard to get .. they don’t give it on the homepage, they don’t give it in the search (Just search for something like “Church” and you will see what come up, everything but church themes).

So now exposure is something rare, something valuable .. and the only way to get it, is by uploading often and consistently.

And that’s what Envato want, that you upload often .. no matter what the heck you upload as long as it goes barely over the “acceptable” line.

But you blame on the wrong person. It’s not Envato’s fault, it’s not author’s fault.

Who’s left? :) Buyers.

I have great respect for them, they pay my bills and my food, it would be silly to bite the hand that feed you. But the problem is that they buy the same theme over and over again.

What I’m saying is that with 1 of the theme in the popular list, with simple CSS I can reproduce 95% of the other themes right there. And that would eliminate all of the problems of exposure.

Buyers need to take 1-2 month of their lives and learn basic CSS because these days, they buy a theme just for 1 feature they are looking for .. instead of doing it themselve.

And as long as they will continue to buy crap .. author will serve them crap, and Envato will accept crap.

It’s all in the hands of buyers.

Hey guys, I have a problem, I need to change the default options for a “List-item” option in Option tree and I really don’t know how to do it. Right now the default are “Title/Image/Link/Descriptions” .. I want to remove them and add my own.

I was able to do it for the “Slider” on the previous OT version but not on the new one.

Does someone know how to do it?

Thanks!

I just searched for “Church” and here are the results :

http://themeforest.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=church

Why is the top ranked theme is not even close to be a church theme?

And what about “Restaurant” : http://themeforest.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=restaurant

So this is the best Restaurant/Church theme?

So basically you just have to tag your theme with all these keywords and hope you get a lot of sales so you end up being everywhere on the search results.

I can’t believe TF doesn’t even prioritize the category it’s in .. A theme in the “Restaurant” category should come up in the search results before any theme in other category even if sales are way higher, don’t you guys think so?
