Honestly this 6 month thing is not gonna work. A month tops. Envato will take the 30% in each sale of the support right? The author gets 70% but has to support the file for 6 months that is crazy.

Specially for one purchase of support? How much are the support packages going to be cus if it’s $20-$25 dollars it’s not worth it for the author at all maybe for envato it would be.

The thing that i do not understand is how can someone come up with supporting a file for 6 months straight with a single license of the support package?

I totally think this is not gonna work. As i said before tops a month per support purchase not 6 months.

maybe i am not understanding it right but this is how it sounds to me.

Maybe staff could shed some light on this..

Hey

Looks pretty good and i like the animated content as well.

- logo is not jiving with the theme.

- I think there is too much gray not enough contrast.

- slick nav buttons are not aligned to the box below it its off about 10 pixels to the left.

- span and h3 titles are the same size you have to make the h3 titles bigger also add some more space under them.

- our clients in not aligned to the rest of the content. you have to align this to the width of the main content also the nav buttons are not aligned to anything.

- I would also consider a different font for the h3 and span tags.

- love the menu.

- as an example the teams page images are not really good quality. make sure you use great quality images.

- so mostly i think is not enough contrast, fonts and font sizes, spacing to my eyes anyways. The theme has a lot of cool features so i think its the design part not the features and functions.

Good luck

Cheers

Well it’s true 70% is better than 0%. I mean we enjoy seeing people buying our theme and template and we try to be as quick as possible with basic support and we still get a few peed off people that rate our file one star. The reason for this is because we usually explain what basic support covers but they want a bit extra work done for free and if we do not do it we get a one star rating. It ain’t fair.

The way that this support thing should be approached is two buttons one with and one without support. The one without support would still cover bugs updates and so on but no installation and adding widgets or any other custom work to the theme.

I am also a buyer of many files here on the marketplace. Honestly all of the files i have purchased have more than coherent and concise documentation to cover the basic installation and explanations of each section of the themes or template.

Anything above and beyond that that buyer would have to purchase. I think the support fee should be at least half of the price of the theme or template or codecanyon files.

I think the 6 month thing is still too much. It’s not the authors responsibility to update customers files. We update our files and it’s noted in the comment section what has been updated so the buyer should know and update their purchased files accordingly.

I think for purchased support there should be a 1 months limit because setting up a site should not take that long. So if a buyer pays for support he would be entitled to one month support to set up the theme. Anything over that is crazy.

Cheers

OK

I think this 6 month thing is whack yo. No one in their right mind would waste their time for free.

If you include support you should bump the wp themes up to at least $150 USD and definitely not for 6 months. Who came up with this bright idea?

I honestly think that the buyer should purchase support per hour if he needs an hour of support he would purchase an hour for a set price. It’s simple like black and white. If they do not want the support they could click on a button saying no support required so we would know that this buyer did not choose support with the file.

Why is it so hard to do a system like that? Two buttons buy support no buy support thats it. As i said if my clients in Canada want me to give free support i would tell them to go somewhere else i am not the salvation army.

Just not fair in my mind and also taking 30%. Here is another idea why does not envato support the files for free for six months. I know because envato is a business and if they do stuff for free they would close the business right. Same goes for the authors.

Some authors live off this so doing things for free is not an option.

@Collis

Is there any way of having extra buttons added when the buyer purchases a file. One is no support and the other would be support required but for a price of course not for free. And this would not include any customization that would fall under freelance prices. Mainly basic issues like installation issues and any other issue that the buyer has excluding custom work.

In Canada i charge a minimum of 60/h to do any support for my clients if they have an issue. Ok i understand that this is a marketplace so i would say support for a wp theme per hour would cost the buyer lets say 20 USD the authort takes 80% and envato 20% since the author is doing the support work.

So the buyer could purchase a $20 credit which would mean an hour of support for the theme or CC file purchased and the author would see that this buyer has actually purchased support time by receiving an email with a reference number or purchase number from envato.

I think this would work because some of the support requests that we get are more towards customizing adding widgets and so on and has nothing to do with basic support like installation problems which is the most common issue.

Also getting support for 6 months is crazy. What if a buyer needs help an hour a day for the 6 months? Thats a lot of free work which is not fair to authors at all. I hope this six months thing is just a joke.

This would be like buying a mercedes crashing it into a pole and then going back to the dealership saying i did not know where the breaks were, now i do not want this car i want my money back. You know what mercedes would say? yes exactly

Anyhow cheers

The menu links should be centered on the header background vertically. so the menu items sit in the middle of the white background.

I think the logo could still use some work. Add some image or something to it.

I would stay away from using italic fonts on titles.

Portfolio still not matching the rounded corners of other content in the theme. same goes for the contact form.

Add a nice 1 px border to the introduction image so it looks a bit highlighted from the white bg.

timeline h1 does not look good not lined up to anything.

the +more buttons add some space between the + sign and the more text they are too close and the plus sign is taller than the text. Also the normal color is not jiving with the theme you are using a brownish color for the normal state of the buttons. Maybe use a #444444 or #666666.

Contact from has a blue border when selected use a different color like the red in your theme.

col-md-3 col-sm-5 still does not look right too much space on the right maybe center the content in the column.

Cheers
