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
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?
After a rather tumultuous weekend including multiple restores from my Time Machine (ouch!), I finally upgraded.
Guys, if you’re stuck on ‘2 minutes remaining’, be patient. If you have a bunch of stuff in /usr/local/bin (such as LaTeX or a large number of Homebrew packages), this last few steps can take multiple hours. Even the cmd+L installation logs can get stuck for an hour without showing any progress. Be. Patient. It’ll be all right in the end. Wait it out.
