I don’t mind learning Wordpress and will when I have time, BUT say you really need to learn Wordpress when your pitching your theme.
Pretty much sums up the reason for this thread.
Yet another prime example, IMO , why TF should implement a BUYERS QUIZ , in the same way that we authors have had to complete a authors quiz.
Make them take a aptitude test before being allow to purchase themes. I’ve literally had people by themes, then send support questions saying a theme is broken, upon asking at what URL they have their WordPress install at, they respond with by saying “What is WordPress?”, then demanding a refund.
This buyer blames TF and the author, while admittedly does not have a proficiency in WordPress and does not view it as a requirement in purchasing a highly advanced WordPress theme.
Many people buying themes really aren’t even sure how to use basic WordPress functionality, and are generally flat out unwilling to take the time needed to educate themselves in this regard, such as this buyer.
It should NOT be a theme authors, or TF responsibility to educate YOU on how to use WordPress.
Need to know how to use WordPress ? 10,000+ pages of how to do that. But that’s not the issue, the issue is many buyers such as this one are generally not willing to… “[learn WordPress] I will when I have time…”
WOW , this thread is crazy!
First I would like to say that all I did was respond and thank those who offered congrats. And the piece about being the first author in TF was COMPLETELY RANDOM at best, no arrogance or pretensions whatsoever, zero!
I’m just coming back from some time away from TF and it has become seemingly apparent through this thread that TF isnt the same place it was when I left.
Wow, thanks for the feature (double)!
Here’s a little TF trivia for some of you:Q. Who was the very first author on ThemeForest?
I am here
I’ve moved from the states to Europe and have spent some time getting settled in here, along with some contract projects… have all but kept me busy in recent months.
I was able to upload a new theme just today, so check it out – Marketplace Community Theme
I have 3 more themes I’m hoping to upload before the month is up, and have several others I need to update and add additional functionality to.
Cheers, TF peeps!
Yeah, these are a fantastic set… cant wait to get them.
