No, this is not true… If you upload 10 items at the same time, only one will appear on the homepage. The rest will go unseen.

I definitely saw 2 items of the same author on the front page of WordPress theme category. It was a distance of about 3-4 themes between each other suggesting it was uploaded with a difference of a couple of hours.

Or are we talking about the “Homepage” homepage where the items appear on the “New Items” section?

I agree with you, usability is important. But as you said “here isn’t any difference between adding link into the img tag or into the shortcode” the first option actually teaches the user something. He can use that in any html document not only your theme.

If you noticed in my first post I even noticed that I avoid making customers use html but that’s not always possible.

If I handled refunds I would gladly refund him just for that. He started to insult me and call my work “sh*t” and I don’t want to work with rude clients.

@TommusRhodus, @egemenerd:

Hey guys, I totally agree with you and with FinalDestiny’s method. But this is not the point. In this particular case I needed to use the shortcode in that way.

Also, it’s bad practice to turn every html tag in shortcodes. I think Justin Tadlock has a full article about this. But, still that’s not the point of my post.

The point of my post was that you can’t build your website with an advanced theme and want a complex website without, at least, have some basic html/css skills.

Hey guys,

Thank you for your replies.

@NestoLab:In my opinion “drag, drop & insert” is viable in a perfect world. When you start to build your own website I suppose you need at least some basic html/css skills. And I’m talking about basic stuff like inserting an image or a link.

@Smartik: +1 exactly my thoughts

@FinalDestiny: Yes, I know, but I needed the code this way in this particular case. Also, I’m not willing to turn every html tag into a shortocde. That’s very bad practice.

Did I mention that this buyer claims to be a web designer having his own studio?

Hey guys,

I had this buyer a couple of days ago that sent me a message like:

You’re selling a PREMIUM THEME which requires knowledge of HTML to use? Are you SERIOUS? It’s totally unacceptable. Please refund my money immediately.

He was referring to a shortcode from my theme that was like:


[framed_image align="left/right"] <img src="your-image-url-here" /> [/framed_image]

I try to keep away users from using any html/css code but in some cases it’s not possible. And in those cases I document everything very well (like the above example).

What’s your opinion about this? Should users have at least some basic html/css experience when working with an advanced theme or a “PREMIUM THEME” means just “drag, drop & insert”?

Cheers!

It’s all down to marketing, you can’t rely on Envato to bring you the sales, you need to get out there and drum up the sales…. you can read my thoughts
I’m not sure I agree with you. Then, why do you split your profits with Envato? If I’m to find sales on my own I can simply create my website and sell for full profit.

they let you add your product to their site and sort the payment side for their cut, it’s ultimately upto you to drum up the sales

You’re kidding, right? A regular payment merchant has 3-4% share. Envato has up to 50% in order to push traffic to your items so you can sale in order for them to take commission.

What’s the purpose of paying a marketplace tax if there’s no buyers in the market, lol?

I’m waiting for this too :)

For the widgets I thought of somehow using parts of the “widget settings importexport”. Create the .json file and then use parts of the code to directly import the settings from the specified file.

The only way this can be a bad thing is if you are trying to be dishonest when it comes to your tax returns, trying to say you earn xxx when you are in fact trying to earn xxxx.

Regardless of if your government are corrupt or not, if you have a debt or any kind of tax you should pay it.

In the end it will only come back and bite you in the arse.

Plus not telling your Girlfriend is a little poor of an excuse, if you cant tell your own girlfriend or family members that you are earning xxx then you must be doing something immoral which is why you are feeling ashamed at what you are earning.

Why would one care about this? Why would one care if I pay my taxes or not, if I tell my gf or not?

It’s my choice and I will support the consequences of my actions. Does it affect you if one doesn’t pay his/hers taxes?

The OP has a valid point and it should be optional to make your earnings public.

Is it just me with this problem? I still can’t see the “Edit Comment” feature.

Staff Edit: Just adding to this to show that we see/can the edit SkatDesign. Still trying to figure this out for you!
