Just saw this job on peopleperhour and made me laugh a little, someone obviously wants to emuldate Avada but doesn’t have the skills.

I was thinking in the region of $25k-$75k depending on exact features

Avada has made roughly $3 million so how much would you pay to get a similar theme built

Trust me, making a decent theme != it will become a top seller. Moreover it will most probably become a very expensive fail. Of course if you will not have a bit of luck OR advertise it like crazy like “X” (@themeco if you’re reading this, no offense – I’m just kidding).

I am a professional webdesigner and we in our company do only 100% W3C valid websites….

Wow, good for you! I thought a pro “webdesigned” would know the answer, though :D

BTW “web designer” is a term without exact meaning.

I’ve had similar 48 hour notices too, so I can’t complain. But otherwise your claim is reasonable.

Yes, as I’ve said it is the proper way to handle such things. 1 or 2 times I had similar notices and appreciate such attitude. But what I’m strongly against is disabling item without doing proper check.

BTW theme is already back (thanks to Envato for it). But we have an unpleasant precedent. Not the first time and not only me :(

I had the same problem in the past, but the last week I received a notification that there is an issue with one of my themes and I must fix it within 48 hours otherwise the theme will be soft disabled. I was really satisfied with such attitude, thought that they changed the way of disabling the items without prior notification.

Yeah that’s a proper way to handle such things. It was not my case though.

[...] Soft disabling without evening checking if the claim is true or not [...]

That’s exactly what I’m talking about.

Hey everyone!
Recently I’ve got email from Envato:

Hi Dream-Theme,

We have initiated a quality review check of your item, [theme name removed]. Unfortunately, we’ve had to soft disable the file. We’ve received some complaints and after an inspection we have found issues and/or bugs that need to be fixed:

The contact form is not working as expected. Please release a fix.

[...]

So theme is disabled because somebody thought that contact form is not working (without actually bothering to read that form sends messages to email that was set during WordPress installation).

Now question to Envato: don’t you guys think that this is not very adequate behavior? I understand when item is disabled when there’s a crucial issue. But disabling theme for a minor issue and without contacting author for comment?.. Guys I thought we must treat each other as a RELIABLE business partners but your attitude is kinda ignorant (sorry to say this).

To fellow authors: Please +1 this thread and “REQUEST STAFF REPLY”. IMO fact that items can disabled for minor issue (without actually checking it) is a serious threat for our businesses.

Just checked, you actually CAN use “human-friendlyURLs” :) In result your .htaccess will look like this:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

DirectoryIndex readme.html index.php
