@TylerQuinn and @OrganicBeeMedia: I strongly disagree.

A WP theme or plugin should know its boundaries. If it places a referal link on its own settings page, I could live with that. However, the script should not start messing randomly with any other part of the admin area. Really, that is what is happening here. Going over every link on the whole page and checking for a certain URL just to replace it with a referal URL is totally unacceptable, no excuses, even if it is only on the back-end. Such sneaky code should not be allowed.

Okay, I contacted the Envato staff about it. Let’s see what happens.

I bought a WP theme which integrates with the WooCommerce plugin. To my surprise I found a small JavaScript file that gets loaded in the WP admin. Here’s a bit of the code:

var links = jQuery('a[href="http://www.woothemes.com/extensions/woocommerce-extensions/"]'); links.attr('href','http://www.woothemes.com/woomember/go?r=XXXXXX&redirect=www.woothemes.com/extensions/woocommerce-extensions/');

It searches for any links to the WooCommerce extensions site, then replaces that link with the referal link of the theme author.

I find this behaviour totally unacceptable. I’m not against referal links inside a theme or plugin per se, however, in this case the script will look for any link throughout the whole admin! This is not what a theme/plugin should be allowed to do. Imagine if all themes/plugins started doing this.

What’s your take?

Good change. I’ve been looking forward to this. It’s still not a lot of money for a good brochure template. Will be interested in the sales/earnings developments.

FF Scala for longer bodies of printed text.

I didn’t see Clarendon mentioned before neither. Great retro look.

What if you’re releasing a “big non-backwards-compatible completely-rebuilt 1.x-to-2.0” update? :-)

Most of the comments and the rating may not be relevant anymore. Of course, releasing it as a completely new item would not be fair for buyers of v1.x.

My point? A “buy upgrade” option would be a nice marketplace feature. If you bought v1, you can buy v2 for less. Just an idea. Thoughts?

After I returned from vacation, I had some support questions for my items in my inbox. These mails contain a link to verify whether the buyer is a real customer of yours. All fine. The problem is that purchase data shown by those links is only active for 7 days from the sending of the mail.

Is it possible to still verify buyers after 7 days?

While we’re at it, I was wondering about the reason those links expire after 7 days. I guess it has to do with some privacy concerns. Yet, people requesting support wouldn’t mind making sure the author knows they’re valid buyers, on the contrary. Couldn’t this period be extended to something like 30 days?

Alright, I see where you’re going with your explanation. It wouldn’t be very convenient to work with the file, but with some effort a lot of stuff could be reused or recreated. Shame on whoever would do that.

Anyway, I wasn’t able to find a watermark option in InDesign (other than creating a new layer in the document itself). With Acrobat Professional, which ships with Creative Suite, it is easier. Must have been the first time I used that app: Document > Watermark > Add. Result below.

By the way, glad you like the tree. I had quite some touching up to do on the tree. The original shot had some distracting vegetation around it. Long live the clone stamp tool. :)
