Why not adding properties to the global post object?
Parent: <?php global $post; $post->myvar = “hello”; ?>
included file: <?php global $post; echo $post->myvar; //returns “hello” ?>
Hi, many authors as you and me have the same problem of piracy. I’m now paying an external company to take care of this, but I think is unfair because as speaking of softwares, and as they come with a purchase code, i think there can be an easy solution to prevent illegal downloads.
What i don’t want to do, as this would be easy but risky at the same time, is to put some verification code connected with my server to check that if a purchase code is used on more than one domain, as if one day i wanna stop with this my customers cannot have their site crushed.
Actually, the best thing would be a software in the theme’s settings that ask for questions like - when did you purchase the theme - the purchase code - username of the envato user who made the purchase
Ad this point would be nice if Envato dispose a service (“REST” would be cool) to allow the buyer to verify the purchase when he install the theme. In this way there is no need to share the algorithm to generate the purchase code (or another similar confirmation code). There are no problems if in the future the service dies because verification happens only once.
This doesn’t neither require a big effort by the development or server point of view for the service that must dispose this check via REST.
Then via a nice plugin installable via tgm, Envato can protect himself and the authors form piracy in a very effective way.
That said, i’m not an expert of this things, i was just exposing some ideas. I’m ready to collaborate with anyone who wants to work on this.
Thanks for the suggestions
Thanks for your response
Nice but a bit blinky as you said. Could be a nice theme but you really need to work on it for a prefect result. The menu is soooo huge. You also have an illegal token issue. I made a music theme few months ago (http://themeforest.net/item/labelpro-responsive-music-wordpress-theme/3646671) so i would like to share with you a few of my experiences with it. You could do a better implementation of soundmanager2, it’s a bit “low effort”. Plus consider that most of bands and musicians has a tons of tracks and albums, and they want to organize the things in a better way than just showing a few bounce of tracks The tour dates thing is nice but there is a huge TIME while people wants to see day and city. The huge blocks under the sliders are nice but what are they for? Also some better social functions would be cool, cause are very important for the musicians… Most of them uses soundcloud and mixcloud, is hard to sell a thing that does not contemplate those integrations. There are cool API out there waiting for you to use them, but do it wisely without making it too heavy to load I tell you these things cause i think that you are talented but maybe u miss some musician experiences go on working hard and rock it!! cheers m8!
