Then it’s an issue and Envato should prevent “mega themes” with a lot of contradictory plugins from being sold and better integrate advertisement of commonly used plugins on the product pages without being biased towards specific ones. For instance, having a “Need a slider?” button that would take you to a search results page on CodeCanyon for slider plugins.
(I’m aware this may seem a bit off-topic but I think it’s relevant to “low sales” for certain authors as the sales shift towards “mega value” themes)
wphunters saidThey’re not all ‘god awful’, some are
guuthemes saidOur theme is not god-awful monster
Interestingly, the HTML version sells well, WordPress no.Because the marketplace is saturated with these god-awful monster themes. Which a WP buyer now accepts/expects as standard.
@wphunters: After looking at your themes I actually really like them and I agree they’re not god-awful. I believe what guuthemes is referring to is themes that include so many sliders you start to find hamburgers in the crevices of your WordPress admin panel, and their main selling point is how much money you’ll save by using their theme which includes $3000 worth of plugins.
At this point in time I feel like a lot of authors aren’t thinking about the quality of what they make, but the great plugins they can include to add “value”; I’m not dissing the plugins, I think they’re great, but they’re plugins and authors are including an unnecessary amount of them, especially when there are plugins that contradict eachother, such as having multiple slider plugins.
Neat. Love seeing things that waste our time less and improve speeds, especially with things like 4K slowly taking over.
It’s finally fixed! It was an absolute nightmare with support forums, I thought there was one person who decided to abuse free support
Thanks Envato for fixing that even though it shouldn’t have really passed QA anyway.
why don’t you use a real estate theme and modify it?
Hi! Probably is what I will have to do, but because i’m not an expert in webdesign and the modifications I will have to do in a real estate template will be massive, I was trying to know if there was already a template for sale house plans.Thank you!
They definitely wouldn’t be massive modifications by my standards anyway – I don’t even think it would be too much work to build a search system like the sites you linked have. You could use virtually any woocommerce theme and get off just fine.
For the site you’re looking to build I’d go with something like this: http://themeforest.net/item/seller-responsive-multipurpose-theme/7273592?ref=landonw and then just use woocommerce together with it. Either way, if you decide to do something and need a developer for customizing a WordPress theme at a reasonable price, let me know.
“Professional but not overly corporate” pretty much describes the themes that ThemeTon makes – my favourite being this: http://themeforest.net/item/flap-business-wordpress-theme/8674654?ref=landonw
If that one doesn’t work for you, they have a bunch of other themes just as good. They offer an awesome drag and drop builder and some of the fastest customer support out there, which is always important.
It would be great if for Theme Teams you could receive notifications when an item is commented on rather than having to manually check each item regularly.
Personally, I think if you’re going to be selling themes or anything on Envato Marketplace you should use the account you have now unless you plan on having a partnership; People are more likely to buy products from someone they recognise (to my understanding anyway)
