if this in WordPress, look in the index.php (appearances > theme editor) and look for the_excerpt() and change to the_content()

This is a general guess though and your best bet is to contact the author as all themes are different and they may use a different file or different coding

Too amazon is fake (and I would guess so is eleamazon) – why on earth are they trying to use the amazon name, they are fake as the prices are way too low, there are no contact details for the business and the website looks like it has been put together in 2 days (look at the contact form, it has text which they should have adjusted).

99% of websites selling stuff cheaper than Amazon are fake, very few can match or beat Amazon’s price.

Your best bet is to only buy from a reputable company that have heard of other wise there is a large risk you will lose your money.

Thanks for reply, MhW.

If you lose all the links, then this is a big drawback. As far as I remember, you do store the old_username, so what would be the problem to make them working?
+1
But what if a new user wants to use that exact username? It shouldn’t be blocked when no one uses it anymore. Unless of course you do what Websmacker suggested!

I can name a few accounts I know of (I have a few) where they aren’t “used” for as an author or buying, but are just accounts set up for affiliate income.

no, you don’t need to supply any design files unless submitting to the psd category, it’s an extra bonus if you include them but it’s not compulsory

In an ideal world that would work Lef but the ones who want the customisations are the ones who send the most tickets and cause the biggest aggro (imho).

“I would like your theme to do xxx task”, – it’s not something I had planned but will look into it, “I am going to have to rate 1 star as it doesn’t do what I need”.

Some buyers expect the world for their very few dollars they buy the theme for, Envato need to put a warning for buyers “You’re buying the product sold as seen, any new features are at the discretion of the author”.

Fixing bugs should be a priority but those who shout loudest get heard better.

Envato can (they did this a few weeks ago for Fundify) but it’s done on a case-by -case process so you would need to talk to support about how to do it etc

Awesome contest :) We are in: http://themeforest.net/item/chronicles-church-donation-html-template/8128143

Weird…

How is it possible that this theme qualified to TF while it doesn’t validate?

Validator w3

Validation means nothing, it doesn’t make the template worse for it having “errors” ... Basically it’s a “my dad is bigger than yours” argument for web geeks.

I think I know what you mean e.g.

I can have a page as domain.com/post or domain.com/test/post

You have 2 options:

1) Set the page as a child page of another, it will then take the master page name in the url

2) Change your WP URL structure in general settings, change site address (url) to domain.com/test/

Hope that helps

Please, put my money back whatever the amount is. Maybe small for you but big for me ( $5 ).

And if you cannot keep the money for more than a year as I just found out today DO NOT make people pay you in advance. Let them pay for whatever they need the exact amount. Maybe I do not need anything else in that year.

PLEASE put my money back and I need to make a purchase.

thank you

P.S. already sent support 2 emails and no answer

Please don’t open multiple support tickets as it will keep pushing you back in the queuee, support will get to you within 7 days (normally earlier).

Your account credit expires after 12 months for accounts / tax reasons, if yours has ran out then Envato will reinstate it.

Account credit is the same as a gift card from any retailer, it will have an expiry date.

a little bit of jQuery and some php (or other scripting language) would do this, not sure if something exists already though.

Images would be stored via the database along with their prize e.g.

image 1 – no prize

image 2 – ps3

image 3 – no prize

You would then randomly display the images, and if someone gets image with a prize it then does another task e.g. ask for their name.

Not difficult to put together and to automate it as much as possible e.g. randomly assign prizes to random images etc
