Confirmed! Adding the user agent in cURL works for cURL based requests.

Still can’t get/figure how to fix it for file_get_contents() method (like ThemeFocus)

Many thanks!

But it was working fine until yesterday. Isn’t there a solution from Envato rather than hacking the code to make it work?

This is very bad move Envato did, they made changes to API without announcing it anywhere, without any warning that it will happen, and ALL apps anywhere using API have stopped working because of it. This is very, very unprofessional. I expect great many users will start blaming developers for apps they purchased to have stopped working. Nice one Envato!

I have confirmed that user agent is required, by running CURL requests with and without user agent, and if there is no user agent, all requests timeout.

Well, I hope this was just a mistake or a problem on their end and they will work on it. I do not think they made such a major change without notifying developers. For now, I will use the suggested hack to calm down some angry customers :)

Hi there… If you place

ini_set('user_agent', 'Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone Simulator; U; CPU iPhone OS 4_3_2 like Mac OD X; en-us) AppleWebKit/535.17.9 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.2 Mobile/8H7 Safari/6533.18.5');

requests will start to work… It’s like all requests from PHP without user agent string are blocked…

But it was working fine until yesterday. Isn’t there a solution from Envato rather than hacking the code to make it work?

This is a confirmation. Yes!

file_get_contents() and cURL methods both are not working. My customers reported that they can’t verify purchase, and when using cURL to validate. It gives a timeout error (Crashes the server for several seconds).

So I just wanted to confirm, that there’s an issue with Envato API. I can run file_get_contents() and cURL on other websites.

This has been working fine just until yesterday, cURL started to timeout and people can’t verify their codes.

When I put the json url in my browser, I can see it, but not working when I make a php call from my web server. Does anybody have the same issue?

Same here which lead me to think it’s my webserver, but looks like it’s not. :)

Thank you!

Ok, I am really sorry to participate in this discussion, and I do not want this thread to take a direction where you put obligation on Envato to do something. I want to send a message to all parties, and again excuse me for replying ( I have seen the thread link in comments and just didn’t want to participate but now I have got to )

To Simon, alexus, webhostingicon, and others I appreciate your words and support guys, really happy to see that some people are really appreciating my work. It makes me happy, as any other author who feels happy when his customers are increasing, and are HAPPY!

familychoice – you have all rights to say your opinion here. And please be sure that I “respect” your point of view.

Envato staff – You guys have been more than helpful, firstly I was rewarded with a reinstate of my item in the homepage, and when I’ve asked for a price increase from $17 they already increased it to $24. All my extensions were approved for a higher-than-average price, so Envato guys could not be more helpful and awesome really. It was me “who chose” to delete the paid addons and they do not have any decision about, they are doing their best. as far as my experience tells, I had a negative story when I put up my plugin for sale, but after they know it was a mistake I only receive “big rewards” from them, big thanks.

And I do not want to forget to thank the reviewers, and Siddharth because I am sure he is the one who set the price, approve price increase, etc.

I think it was my own decision to remove the extensions, and you can’t blame Envato for that. And you can’t ask them to do more than they did already.

I am sure the featured submissions are not discussed on public, and I am almost sure it’s a reviewers choice/decision.

I will continue to work hard, and try to please all customers. I appreciate all the good and kind words said in this thread, it means a lot to me, thanks for your support guys. Do not know how to thank you! ~

Many thanks to everyone who participated in this thread, I’d really ask Envato staff to lock the thread, as I really do not want this to go as a pressure or look like advertising my stuff, I think a good item will get noticed sooner or later, If I work that hard and that good, I will get rewarded for it. But we can’t forget about the other authors who make great apps and stuff too! They deserve to get noticed too.

Thanks to all!

Oh you are not alone. I get these 1-star ratings without comments/complaints/emails.

I feel the same as webfector, it kills to feel that your hard work is still not enough, and that mysterious customer rated you 1/5 without even sending a complaint. envato should think about making ratings more advanced (like review required, author can see who rated his item 1/5)

lol it can end up to be your competitor and not a real customer ;)

I need the format of counter DMCA notice or something to get started.

Also I appreciate if a staff member looks at my ticket. it’s high priority JFP-685-62511

Can someone shed any light?

Someone removed my item based on false DMCA claim. I want to restore my item. What should I do?
