I was wondering if is it good to put all of our development files (together with dist folder) in .zip file of HTML template here?

As can be seen in screenshot below: (definitely don’t need to include node_modules and bower_components)

As it is far more manageable to work on development files as compared to static .html files which have repetition of many code chunks (header, footer etc) similarly for CSS, instead of one long .css files it is good to split styles in multiple logical files. What is your experice? does any one of you have done it, what was the response from customers and does it cause increas/decrease in support request?

and when asked about the procedure and time frame:

You would create a ticket in our Help Center and explain the situation when you need the upgrade. Max would be a month. ;) PR

I want to buy use some codecanyon script in my commercial WordPress theme, before buying it’s extended license i’ll buy it’s regular license to see if it fulfill all my requirements. If i decides to implement it in my theme, i’ll need to buy an extended license, but can i update my existing regular license of same script to extended license? (by paying additional amount)

After watching the video in the original post, I can’t say I exactly agree with her argument that there’s no place in the market for the bloated “do-it-all” themes. As evidenced by the sales of these themes, there is obviously a market for them and people certainly want them.

However…

Envato’s handling of such themes needs to change. They’re ruining the theme market by placing those themes at the same price point as the more focused themes. When faced with the decision of buying a focused theme or a do-it-all theme for the same price, of course the customer will often just buy the theme that gives them more value.

And this situation is stifling creativity since authors are forced to focus on quantity and not quality in order to compete. It’s more about how much you can pack into a theme and not how well you’re packing a smaller amount of features in there.

It’s not about banning themes or restricting what you can put in a theme. Let the market dictate that. But Envato has to recognize that a multi-purpose theme adds value to a theme the same way WooCommerce or BuddyPress adds value. But why does WooCommerce warrant a price increase while a multi-purpose function does not?

And basic economics should tell you that Envato and authors would actually make more money by raising the prices even $20 for multi-purpose themes. They may sell fewer items, but they’ll make more money overall since the price increase will more than make up for it given the high demand for the items. So, it’s even more baffling as to why they are not adjusting prices of these themes when they stand to make more money from them.

Bottom line: Raise the prices of multi-purpose themes, everybody wins.

+1 Totally agree with that. Not sure why there is no price increase in multi-demos theme yet.

Hey,

I’m looking for some jQuery plugin which can allow overlaying, any embedded or HTML 5 video (optionally), with some custom image + a play icon. An example can be found here: http://vankarwai.com/themes/lobo-agency/portfolio/cannes/?id=139

Although it can be achieved with custom coding, but I’m trying not to build the wheel from scratch :)

Well, I’ve concerns because usually items having low sales may not be supported in the long term. I’ve also seen your support query in this item’s comments section about sales not being calculated correctly.

I’ve came across this tool from codecanyon:
http://codecanyon.net/item/collabo-marketplace-collaboration-system/6906702
but it seems not many authors are using it. Is there any better alternative?
