One thing I can suggest is just look over it. Best thing to do is continue to provide outstanding support for your theme/file/etc… and don’t bother with the other guys. I’m not saying DON ’T file a DMCA , as that would be a great approach.
I would also suggest that you only reply to support requests from actual purchasers, the ones here on TF and don’t worry about the rest. As a long time purchaser here on TF, I’m always going back for more. There’s always going to be pirates, just ignore them they won’t last long anyhow!
An alternative is put in a sniffer script that lets you know what site your theme/files are installed on and you can put in like a remote kill to delete the whole site Just an idea, but not very effective on envato as I don’t believe you can track on a per-user basis.
Another idea is to input a licensing system that would tie into both your’s and envato’s website and store the transaction ID’s somehow… for a long time I’ve wanted to do something like this just haven’t got the time.
Bottom line though, just keep providing support to your “Purchasers” and don’t worry about pirates. Though I’d still file a DMCA
Firstly I have a very unique client, a tattoo artist. For the longest time we’ve been using the Prestige theme by DC and it was an amazing theme to start out, it’s amazingly flexible and crazy extensive when it comes to shortcodes…
Now that her portfolio is much larger we want to switch up themes to a more minimal off-beat style that will showcase her “Featured” works on the site on the front page. I mean we’re talking over 129 images, all different sizes (landscape and portrait). Furthermore we’re using NGG to manage this.
I’m sure she’d like a theme similar to Lovely Minimal (HTML) Though I doubt she would want to take the time to tag, title, and describe every image as she hasn’t even done that yet.
I seen one here on TF awhile back that was a more dynamic layout with offset columns based on image size and seemed that it tiled perfectly. Moreover it also incorporated blog posts and such. Mainly what we want to do is stay away from the usual “Above the fold” designs and do something new and appealing to her social audience. I mean we’re hitting around 200+ a week.
Now I’m a programmer, not a designer, so if someone can give me a list of a few templates that would be awesome
Here’s the thing, I just finished work for a client. During that period they asked that I purchase a product from CC to use for their site, which I did, and was reimbursed.
The thing is, the client, which is a CC customer, is requesting the licensing for that product, or my login information, which I will obviously not give up…
So, my question to CC users is can I somehow contact the admins and just ask if they can transfer the licensing to her account, especially because I can prove she reimbursed me for the product and have an email asking me to purchase it? I don’t want to have to download an update every-time it comes out and send it to her….
Before anyone asks, no I didn’t purchase an extended license, only a regular as it’s only in use on her site…
Haha kind of an odd title eh? Well the thing is, I’m running a little low on cash and I’m in desperate need of the Alabastros theme by MCSStudios.
This is mainly due to the fact I”ve been up-doing my website and this theme seems a perfect fit. So if any of you designers need a good WP developer or even a front-end developer please contact me, I’m desperate, as you can see.
I agree with Mark, most of these designs are narrowly targeted. This isn’t to say that I may not sell, but it may not sell a lot. Now a good idea for designs such as this, is include formatting options within the flash. Not to keyed in on flash but I do know you can create boxes on the fly via action script, therefore you could load data from an XML and if a field is blank then no box would show… just an idea.
I’ve been looking at widgets lately, mainly due to a project I’m starting again, but you ever notice that when it seems you found what you’re looking for, it’s missing something. I know the benifit of open-source code is the ability to edit it… but I’m actually resorting to writing my own from scratch, just so I KNOW it’s what I want.
So my question to you guys, is what wordpress widget is your most favorite, why, and what is missing?
I’d say it depends on the site, you can file a DMCA , and if the end-user fails to comply, then take legal actions.
Actually yea I seen it yesterday on a theme… just can’t remember what theme it was
