@digitalscience, do you remember when Flash was falling, how CC and FF authors were saying flash is so bad, where do you think those Flash devs went after they learned JS, PHP and WP? And they are good booth coding and visually (AS3 beats JS in every aspect even now)
It doesn’t seems fair that lots of people are talking about what is fair or not.
May I remind you that not so long ago some of you made hundreds, maybe millions of dollars, first by selling through AD, than by selling WP themes, while other people like JAVA, C engineers would work years for that kind of money.
Think this this way, some of you made more money than a CERN scientist will ever make, and those guys contribute to the future of the human race.
You’re talking about “legit” followers (people that actually clicked the follow button) or those followers acquired by exploiting a bug within Envato’s website? just joking, there was a thread a couple of months ago, someone was doing that (don’t know if Envato fixed it).
Yeah, we have 240 followers.
I’m a bit confused with the new standards, it will apply starting November or not, the title say “In Draft”, also it does not specify a certain date as Phase 1 did.
As I understand, the purpose of placing portfolio CPTs to a plugin is that the buyer will be able to use the existing portfolio when he/she switches themes without having to re-create it’s portfolio. In order to achieve that an author must create the plugin to work with default WP themes as well (this makes sense to me). I get this, buyers will be more open on the idea of switching themes, therefore they will buy more.
However, the theme that I’m currently working at has a portfolio with some special features (full width/heigh, animations that depend on that…), switching to another theme will most certainly crash the the portfolio.
The second concern is: in order my portfolio plugin to work properly with other themes, it will have to register/load the same fonts as the theme does .
My real question is: If we move portfolio (CPT) to a plugin, is this plugin required to work well with other themes? I believe the answer would be “yes” since I can’t make any sense of it otherwise.
I interested to find out if submission requirements (phase two) will start on Nov (particularly CPT’s in plugins). The reason I’m asking is because on Envato’s support page says “subject to feedback”.
I have a question, most of themes have plugins such as revolution slider. What if revolution slider is included in a theme, does the theme author have to buy a full licence for the revolution slider?
Hi, yes it requires to buy the extended license, besides that you need to ask the plugin’s author for permission.
