Doing free customizations only increases buyers’ expectations so there should be a limit in providing support for free customizations otherwise a few of them will distract you too much.

Hi, I would to know if is possible to enlarge the funcions of Envato referral widget http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/200/41/showcase-items-with-a-referral-widget

with these implementations: possibility to show items from a sub-category (es. WordPress \ Creative \ Photography\ ) possibility to create a plugin with a keywords option to show only items in the keyword (es. I want to show only the worpdress theme in category photography that have keyword “modern”

is possible to create a plugin with these funcions?

I think it should be possible. Once I made a plugin for a website where a search would show results from within that website + show list of items from graphicriver.net with referral link.

As you know ThemeCheck plugin gives error/warning if you are not using post tags anywhere on your theme then your theme will be rejected. This is one of those new conditions for which many themes are being rejected.

But I have seen quite a few themes lately which doesn’t have post tags anywhere on the blog pages.

Does this mean the themes have been approved without considering the lack of use of tags or does it mean the themes’ authors simply haven’t added any tags in their themes due to which no tags are found on those themes?

Edit: I need to know this because I am designing a new theme with minimalist approach and displaying all the post related info doesn’t help achieve minimalism.

To be honest I don’t think the reason giving by the reviewer is a valid reason. Especially, since timthumb has been patched now, but the general consensus is there are far better alternatives out there which greatly outweight using timthumb.

Remember timthumb has known problems with hosting companies and permissions. Add to that the fact it doesn’t actually resize any pictures so the end user could be using images such as 5000×5000 pixels and be wondering why their site takes so long to load. This is a big problem.

I’m not quite sure what the de facto is nowadays, is it to use wordpress built in thumbnail function? Or even sym4ils aqua resizer?

I don’t know, but even nettuts has come up with a reasonable alternative:

http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/php/image-resizing-made-easy-with-php/

And I guess the only real advantage is that timthumb works on all existing images. If you are using an resizer script you may have to reupload all the other images in the wp-upload folder for it to be resized correctly.

But I think this is a small issue. All in all, I’m not sure why people still use timthumb these days.

Good luck.

Hey,

I’m believe you are wrong: TimThumb is the best image resizing software available for free on web (don’t forget that even guys from Woo are still using it – they know stuff about security!). And script form nettuts is not safer that TimThumb, less functional, etc. If you don’t believe me, please take a closer look at newest version of TT (especially how it handles security, image caching and optimizes performance) before writing that I am the one who is wrong :) Thanks!

Moreover in this thread I do not want (and will not) discus which script is better. I’m only trying get the official response: are we, all authors, prohibited to use TimThumb? And if yes – why; which exactly are those security issues mentioned by one of reviewers?

Also I believe that I’m not the only author who would like to clerify this question.

If they have rejected your theme for using timthumb then definitely this is a new change in reviewing policy and will apply to every author just like so many other policy changes happening recently e.g. now they require authors to use comment_form instead of writing custom comments form markup.

I understand your frustration and I believe changes like this in any kind of rules concerning reviewing should be announced either on forums or in the dashboard because without prior announce we authors loose a lot of time.
