Hi 81

Enfold doesn’t officially support WP 4.0 yet, you can check this in the right column on the enfold page, I always advise checking the theme works with the new version before updating your site.

you will need to contact the author, Kriesi by going to http://themeforest.net/user/Kriesi and they will hopefully be able to get a fix out soon

Safari for Winows hasn’t been developed since 2012 so it’s pretty much useless to test on it, I do a basic test but don’t spend any time fixing the little bugs (like IE 6/7/8)

It’s down to cookies, if envato can find a cookie of theirs on your browser then your affiliate won’t be tracked, are your clients buying on their pc’s or on yours?

Thank you for your reply Gareth. I always make sure that they are on their own computer and not on my internet connection.

Both clients had never heard of ThemeForest before either, so had never been on the site…

They may never heard of it TF but could have been on one of the other sites? Even by clicking on an advert! I would always say to delete their cookies etc before going ahead to make sure.

USD 275 sounds fair ? If not, I’m not able to help :) Thanks

you give a price for a job but without ever seeing the code and have no idea how long it will take… seriously dude that’s not good practise for you or the buyer, what if it takes only 2 hours or takes 30 hours? One of you will be mightily pissed.

All of this is from creator of joomla revolution slider . See Here

As a buyer, I couldn’t care less if it’s the plugins fault, you’re selling a theme with it bundled so you need to get the developer to fix it or fix it yourself with a little css.

There is lots of issues I can see on the site e.g.

- on the 4 boxes below the slider where the image goes black and expands, the images are grainy and not very good

- it’s hard work reading the ‘read more’ text underneath each box as it’s white text on grey, the hover is much better

- on mobiles (480px) the read more buttons have no margins, it’s right up against the text above it

I could go on with loads more, the template looks ok but it’s not got the premium finish, there are lots of margin and typography issues and just seems to have been rushed a little

It really is ridiculous that in 2014 an online company doesn’t allow you to buy online goods with a simple credit card transaction
You can purchase directly without depositing money.
Only with paypal and only with a fee. Unless I’m not seeing something.

Payments cost to process, someone has to foot the bill and as a customer I am happy to pay the fee to keep the items I buy lower priced. I regularly pay a small fee (around $1) for using my card in shops.

Envato give you 2 choices: pay per transaction with a $1 / $2 fee or deposit a bit more with no transaction charges

I don’t see how such businesses are sustainable. Charging $10k for setting up a wordpress site is bordering on criminal. Why do customers put up with it? Laziness?

because they don’t know what they are doing so just pay someone else to do it, and they have no idea how much it should cost. I pay my mechanic $70 an hour to fix my car, I haven’t got a clue how to fix stuff like that and have no reason to learn.
