I personally think that theme authors from ThemeForest should not be allowed to include different premium plugins with their themes. We(authors) should add just the compatibility for these plugins and sell only the theme. Here is an idea:

I wish Envato one day will do this. :asleep:

Build one theme, with 250 demos, that cover all possible categories… this in my humble opinion is defined as a bundle…

If I would ever need to create 250 demos, this probably would take me more time than the development time required to make the theme itself. I personally don’t like to make the demo pages. Sometime I can make 20 different homepages with the same theme, but in the end I make just one, because this process is boring.


And html have builders… whats up with that? That’s not html that’s almost like an CMS system

That’s like a virus.

If we don’t stop this type of theme development now, it will stop us later.

Colors, spacing and typography. Practice more.

Some things does not need to be escaped on echo if the backed is done correctly. For example I save a text field using:
sanitize_text_field( '<div>My text</div>' );
This will be saved as:
My text
So I’m sure that the value does not contains any HTML tags and it’s safe to echo as it is:
$my_var = get_option('key');
if( !empty($my_var) ){
    echo $my_var;
}

Review your code and see what should and what not to be escaped. Explain this to reviewer, and if he reject it again, ask him to show you where exactly is the problem.

Not on every “echo”. Use Data Validation functions only there where you don’t know what the data would be. For example, if you get an option from admin panel, you must escape it. But if you know that the saved value is escaped and validated, then you can just echo it.

Ohh. OK, I’ve just tried it and is working great for subcategories. That makes sense now. :)

Hey.

Maybe this has been discussed, I don’t know. Today I noticed that if you go to any category or even to all items page, there are no more than 60 pages to browse, Everything else is hidden. Why is this? How can I see all items that are older than 2 years?

I just don’t understand why on top is written “16,867 Templates & Themes” and down below you can see max 1800 items(the newest)?

2 Months = Panamera? Just Wow… 3 more an a Yacht?

LOL. BTW, I prefer a Camaro. :D

On topic. If this is possible for large amounts, what would be the problem to allow this for the rest of us, that do not earn so much? I mean, come on, 99% of us will never earn so much per month(and I speak for all marketplaces not only TF).

I don’t know what is the right question. Why or How? I’m speechless.
