it had better show my company name instead of mine.
You can set your Company Name under Billing Information in your account settings. But I do not know if it is placed on customer invoices or only on your own invoices if you bought something here.

It’s already entered there, but according to the information provided in a previous post the only way to get the invoice produced by Envato to have my company name was to enter it in my Envato Account instead of my first and last name, but that’s a crappy solution.

I have a question. I’m really not comfortable with every buyer in the world (not that I have many) having my first and last name. Is this required? Can I simply change the name field in my Envato account setting to reflect my “stage” name?
If you’re opting to enter your first and last name, you should use your actual name. If you’re concerned about this however, you can use a business name instead which will override the first and last name on documents.
Thank you for taking the time to respond personally. That answers my question/concern.

My business, much like Envato, is constructed as an entity to protect me and my personal assets. If you’re going to be producing automated invoices on my behalf and putting them in the hands of every buyer that purchases an item, it had better show my company name instead of mine. It’s a question of liability, something Envato seems extremely aware of. You’re obviously changing your business structure to avoid having any liability.

If you’re going to make a change like this, at least build in the tools (additional account fields) for us to properly generate invoices. This is very frustrating. I cringe every time I look at the statement page now.

What a cock up that statement page is now. Come on already, this is such an insult to forward progress.

Great pics. Is that the founder of yetisupport?
I sure am. How did you know that? ????
Haha. I knew it. I recently signed up for your yetisupport beta program and can’t wait to give it a try :)
Nice! I hope you like it!
Still waiting for the invitation

He’s on the road right now and a bunch of us got the flu at PressNomics (myself included). Give him a chance to catch up from the trip and YetiSupport will come through for you!

Based on my experience, I’ve been back since Sunday and barely able to do 10 hours of work between being sick and following up with new contacts over the last 4 days. I think we are all just lucky the flu didn’t kick in during PressNomics. :)

I have to cast my vote for Runway. :P

@Medians_

We added a credits page to recognize contributions too. This is an open source, community project and recognition is deserved!

im checking out Runway now, I just downloaded it – how does it compare to Redux? Also how do I go about adding lets say a Mega Menu plugin to be re-sold within my theme>?

@truckmount

Runway has an integrated extensions engine. You can add functionality to Runway, like a mega menu system, by just drop the code into the Extensions folder and Runway will instantly load it as native theme functionality. It’s just like how WordPress loads a Plugin.

I haven’t used Redux but I think their extensions are extra plugins. I’m going on what I’ve read on their website. We’ve added an option to allow extensions to be installed as Plugins. This maintains the portability of the code for changing themes without the extra plugins during theme install.

BuddyPress and bbPress are two plugins that I hate so much! The code base is trash and there is always something that will not work properly.

I don’t really have a problem with bbPress. It’s not nearly as complex as BuddyPress. You can get decent results from it without much work. Similar to BuddyPress, if you try and customize it too much it there can be problems. The main difference, to me, is the things bbPress does by default do not bother me nearly as much as BuddyPress. That leaves me with far less to change in order to get a good result.

Have you ever developed a BuddyPress theme? If you do anything unique or custom at all it’s nothing but trouble. They’re a pain to create and even more difficult to maintain. Just say no to BuddyPress.

How heavy does the new iPhone Plus feel? My Note 3 does not feel heavy in my hand, but that’s because of my previous phone. It had a physical keyboard that slid out and a massive battery. It was a brick, making the Note feel much lighter. I know the iPhone is very thin but I haven’t held one. Is it heavier then the 5 or about the same?
