If you plan to abandon all your buyers after sales dissipate in 3 months, then hack up Bootstrap all you want. Screw those buyers and do it quick/dirty.

If you plan to maintain the theme and not screw over buyers, then leave the Bootstrap core untouched and extend the classes in a customization file so it can be cleanly upgraded/modified.

Note: this applies to all third-party code.

+1, never edit the 3rd party source file if you don’t have to, it’s the same rule for anything, not just CSS.

Why would it be broken?

You can upload as many files you want, and if you upload them all at once to the same category, chance is they will be approved at the same time.

We used it in a Haven theme for one section only (actually it was used in html version, we just left the effect in wp), and not one buyer complained about it (on IE9 it just displays a normal text block).

You can’t use dash (longer line) in domain name, only hypen (shorter line).

And yes, sebastian-jacobs.com is a good domain name.

Thank you :)
I thing I know which the correct one is in a normal text, but maybe there exist a special rule for domain names?

You can’t use a dash in the domain name (only hypen) so there is nothing to think about :)

The only thing you need to think about is what Australia mentioned, whether you want your name separated by a hypen or not.

Same here (the scroll) on Ubuntu + Chrome, it’s still ok when I just enter, but when I interact with something (for example slider) the scrolling speed becomes very slow.

How do you get more exposure if every author starts doing the same optimization?
By adding to the algorithms the number of sales, the number of years the authors has been on the marketplaces, the conversion rate, the number of clicks, the number of visualizations, etc (things which I personally think are already in place….)

Exactly, but author can’t really affect those parameters, so there is no point in knowing about it.

Even if devs would disclose a full algorithm for search rankings, nothing would change because every author would know it and optimize areas that matter the most.

That’s why I don’t understand what you are hoping to gain from this thread.

I doubt devs will disclose the exact information because that would allow authors to game the system.
And would that be a bad thing? If the authors get more exposure that they get more sales, more sales means more money for the author and for the envato TOO. So why not be clear about this.
