I agree with you. Even worse than this is when a Web Designer’s portfolio IS a customised theme (unless it’s there own theme of course). Unfortunately I have seen this happen as well.

  • Get used to rejection. It’s not personal.
  • When you think your theme is ready to be submitted to the marketplace, go back and make it better.
  • Test, test and test some more. It will save you time and effort later on.

That’s really cool. There was a similar thing a few years ago by Burger King involving a guy in a chicken costume.

I’m slowly evolving my own simple framework to use but it’s not very consistent between themes at the moment.

You did nothing wrong. Occasionally you’re going to get a buyer who expects the Earth (along with your undivided attention and expertise) for the $35 they paid for a theme.

Are Reviewers paid or volunteers?

The $post?>ID in the third line should be ”->”. The forums changed it in my post for some reason and I’m assuming it did the same with your post but I thought I would point it out just in case.

I’m also not sure if the Term Name parameter in get_terms is case sensitive. I know that where I have used it I have written it exactly as the term name is when the taxonomy is created.

Thanks jayjdk. So many wordpress functions I had never come across that one.

Although my technique should work it isn’t actually the exact code I use as the code I posted would only output the last label if the post has more than one assigned to it. So if the post was in the “Web Design” and “Illustration” categories only the last would be used. You could get around that by putting the foreach loop exactly where you want the output in your html and echo the $label variable on each iteration of the loop. I don’t know how correct or proper it would be structurally but I know it works.

I have used this code to add a Custom Post’s taxonomy to its li tag as a class. Inside the loop…


<?php $post_categories = get_the_terms($post?>ID, 'Taxonomy Name');
foreach ($post_categories as $category) {
     $label= strtolower($category->name);
     $label= str_replace(' ','_',$label) ';
}?>

<li class="<?php echo $label; ?>">
</li>

This might be of some help explaining things: http://www.ukbusinessforums.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=77838

Your Envato earnings are essentially seen as a second job / source of income therefore it should be declared.

I would recommend opening a separate bank account which would make keeping a record of earnings much easier.
