Is there a way to get a list of all purchases for a certain user (regardless of the author of purchased items).

Right now you can get a list of purchases for the creator of the app but I need a more general solution (trying to provide purchases management for the buyers).

Any chance it might get added?

The goal here from what I understand is to minimize the support burden by limiting it to 6 months and to make some income on extensions. It is not to sell your time. Again, nothing changes from the support you are providing today.

Except it does. Right now we provide support to buyer on our own terms, and already there are abusive buyers who ask way more than what’s covered by support. I can only imagine what will happen when se start getting customers who specifically paid for support.

And I’m sorry, but Envato is outright disrespecting us with their support pricing. $10 (best scenario) for 6 months of support, I’m sorry, what? Not to mention their monopoly with “not supported” badge and restricting us in avoiding their new awful system. There are some nice people working on Envato but whoever came up with this has clearly never sold anything on a stock market.

I actually think we should not allow Windows Safari users to purchase anything, the browser was discontinued a long time ago and anyone who still uses is as their main browser deserves not to have a great experience of the web.

Hi,

check out my plugin here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/optimize-images-resizing/

It’s not for regenerating thumbnails via admin control though, it only generates the image size wen it’s requested so it saves you space as well as you don’t have unnecessary image sizes for images that don’t need them.

Yes, it’s best to protect your entire site with SSL.

That said, SSL had nothing to do with placing your website in https folder. I wish it would be that easy :) In reality, you need to buy and install certificate on your server. I guess your hosting provider will have some kind of tutorial for setting up SSL on their server.

About paid updates: I agree with you since I regularly develop big updates for my top plugins, but is not a common rule. Not everyone support or update plugins/themes and would be unfair to sell updates in this context. There would be full of authors uploading the same project with 2 more/less code lines and with a new version number.

Maybe you misunderstood, but no one wants paid updates as in 1 update = $X, we just want the model every other sane market/shop out there uses (I guess Envato is the smartest of all as it’s discarding this without giving it any thought) , one year (or six months) free updates and then you have to extend your licence for another one year (or six months).

Again, that’s how pretty much every WP shop operates, it is a proven model that works in the real world, and it benefits both authors and buyers.

Paid support packs with variable pricing (- 30% to Envato for doing nothing) benefits no one, except maybe those abusing buyers that will have one reason more to abuse their right to support and their ultimate weapon (a one star rating).

I use it regularly on ATM-s and fees are not that terrible. It’s best to use the card directly in stores and online because then you have no fees, unlike when you withdraw on ATM.

I see no reason why you should check if dynamic_sidebar function is defined.

It’s in the WordPress since 2.2.0, I would understand if it’s a recent addition but in this case it makes no sense.

It’s as if we would be required to check if WP_Query class exists before using it.
