Fuelthemes, everyone knew this was coming so you should have been doing it anyway, I really do feel for your buyers if you haven’t been doing this before as you have pretty much made their lives 10x more difficult if they want to change themes but keep the data they have built up.

If I buy a theme with the cpt’s installed in the theme, I will get a refund from Envato as I don’t want or need the hassle of moving themes in the future.

It was a planned rule if I remember right but never came to fruition but it should be done anyway, it makes your theme a lot easier to use for customers who may want to switch themes.

You need to use localised versions of scripts not cdn, lots of reasons including what if I wanted to use the theme / template locally also what happens if the cdn is down?

Some themes are heavy weight (nature of the beast, you’re buying a theme which has to cater for lots of uses) but there are lots the website owner can do to speed it up, authors should be doing some things to help but there is only so much you can do in the theme, most of it will be server and install / plugins.

Stuff like htaccess caching, server gzipping and image reduction

I don’t think there is a rule to say you can’t but you should use a copy in the theme package as when buyers html templates (and even wp themes) buyers will play with the site locally. If it won’t work locally then they will complain your item is broken.

So do I really need to edit ACF & Redux cores? I don’t think its a good idea.

No, you just need to sanitize the data that you take from the panel e.g.

Let’s say you have an item in the panel called subtitle, and we grab the data with:

<?php
global $test_data;
if(!empty($test_data['subtitlel'])) {
 $subtitle = $testdata['subtitle'];
}
echo $subtitle;

Change the final line to:

echo esc_html($subtitle)

The basics of it is, if you are allowing users to input data into your theme then you need to sanitize the data so they can’t do bad things with the input.

Why no?

Extended license says this: “You are licensed to use the Item to create one single End Product for yourself or for one client (a “single application”), and the End Product may be Sold.”

So why no?

As you only have a license to sell it as a package to a client, you cannot resell the item by itself.

If you want to create a theme from another authors work then you need to get permission from them and they will ask for one of 2 things:

1) You buy the rights to the item to sell as a specific theme e.g. prestashop

2) You split the earnings from the item

Not going to happen as Envato are just the “middle man” and the author still owns the files, so they can remove / edit their items when they want with no notification, Envato couldn’t possibly help with this.

It’s up to you as a buyer to keep a copy incase your item is removed
