Thanks for the notice, Ben. Good call!

Of course it’s already been a few weeks since POODLE, but I’m glad Envato is taking adequate measures. :)

My experience with Digital Ocean has been positive so far, although I’ve heard of people that had less positive experiences when it came to customer support. They’re a bit of a budget host after all, so it helps if you know how to fix stuff by yourself. My experience with them is through running a Tor node rather than hosting a web stack, but from that perspective I have no complaints whatsoever.

The tools they provide for you to manage your servers with them (i.e. the web interface) is quite nice, actually. The IRC channel on Freenode is typically quite lively as well, although the level of content.. varies ;)


However I don’t want extra headache in maintaining the servers, but i don’t think a simple LAMP configuration that runs wordpress will need that much of maintenance.

Yeah, I agree. People generally tend to overestimate the effort that it takes to maintain a server when you’re not doing all sorts of crazy stuff. As long as you know your way around a shell and can apply your patches, that should be fine with minimal effort.

This one’s truly amazing. I really liked the simple concept of it all, and if you take your time it can be very rewarding :P

Sounds like a great plan! I’d definitely use this, as I’ve been meaning to clean away some old files, but for the sake of availability, I didn’t want to.

Why are people accessing the site on accounts other than their own, though? I’d say that is the root of the problem here..

That sounds like a great idea if that’s the level of buyer involvement that you can deal with. From the more technical buyers, it can definitely provide valuable input.

However, I’d recommend against hosting this on Github, just to be on the safe side. Perhaps someone who is more aware of the legal details can lend me a hand here, but I’d much prefer to have it hosted on my own GitLab installation or something like that. In any case, you’ll need to be very clear about copyright when it comes to buyer’s contributions, especially if you’re repackaging it in an update.

In any case, if I were to buy a file that came with git access and an encouragement to send in pull requests, it would at the very least make me feel appreciated and valued as a buyer. ;)

Hi David, welcome to the Envato marketplaces!

You’ve just posted to the general Activeden forums. However, your file seems to concern an issue with one specific file. In that case, it usually works much better to directly contact the author of the file. He or she will probably be able to help you out!

You can find a contact form on the bottom-right side of their profile page :)

Cool thread, guys! Really amazing to see all our stuff in the wild, especially when it’s linked to such big names!

The first thing to do is to get in touch with the author of the file. The public forums are not the best place to start with a question that is so specific to a single file. Furthermore, it is rather unlikely that there was no style.css file included with a WP theme.. Are you sure?
