Is anyone else having trouble when viewing updated article templates through the preview app? I have updated the css but it seems to be caching the old version. I’ve tried logging out and back in again, clicking on different articles and “Refresh Publication” – none of which is sorting the issue. Loosing a bit of time on it and don’t have much left!
I found closing the app completely and then restarting it was sometimes needed.
It’s a bit of a pain — hopefully something they fix up at some point.
The themes that have been already accepted are just soft-disabled so you can improve preview images. I think they have sent an e-mail to all of you explaining what’s happening and how to reupload your themes.
According to new terms “Article templates must be unique from each other. You may include additional/minor variations of a template, but these will not be factored into theme pricing.”In other words, things like very minor css or color modifications do not count toward a template’s uniqueness. The uniqueness of each template will be reviewed by Envato staff.
Where did you read this? Just reading over the competition guidelines and I’m not seeing this.
By the way, I realized after reading through the full terms and conditions (http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/311/0/envatos-most-wanted-terms--conditions) that Envato bases eligibility on when you submit an item, not when it is approved. i.e. It can be approved after the competition ends, so long as it was submitted before it ended.
I really hope that Envato extend this competition. It looks like 4 themes have been disabled in the past 2 days. With less than a week to go until the deadline, it makes it really tough for those authors who thought they had valid items and now have very little time to fix up whatever issues they have before the deadline.
I’m not sure about WebGamO’s submitted theme, but ours is still being held — 15 days since submission. If it is not approved before next Monday, does that mean we miss out on this competition? It seems unfair that a theme submitted 20 days before the deadline might actually miss out simply because it hasn’t been reviewed.
Could someone from Envato please comment and clarify what’s going on?
I’m working through the tutorials on typeengine.net now and hoping to get a theme together soon (my first ThemeForest submission!). Looks like the section is up on the site now, though it’s strange… I can only see the “TypeEngine” category beneath the “More” menu item when in Safari. When using Firefox and Chrome, it is not visible?
The category is hidden to logged out users while in beta. Hopefully they will take it out of beta soon though to help sales for those who have created products.
I’ve also had a theme in the temporarily held queue for the past 3 days. I suspect that they may only be reviewing TypeEngine themes on one specific day of the week, to keep things streamlined for the reviewing team.
I’m really hoping they pull the category out of beta soon!
Update: Closing date extended!The closing date has been extended to Monday December 2nd, 2013. Thats an extra 4 weeks to submit your TypeEngine Themes!
Now you tell me We just submitted ours last night.
Will the TypeEngine themes get a cycle through the homepage? Just noticed that the one listed in there already is only visible if you’re logged in, and I don’t recall seeing it on the homepage.
What happens with the bonus prize if there are less than 3 entrants?
- 10 x $400 prizes for the best files in the following categories (also voted by Modern Tribe):
- Best New theme/integration ($400)
- Best Upgraded theme/integration ($400)
Does this mean that an existing theme can be updated to include support for Event Calendar 3, and stand a chance of winning in this category? I assume it wouldn’t be able to win in the main event.
We just had ours approved (http://themeforest.net/item/huckleberry-ghost-theme/5884584?WT.ac=category_item&WT.seg_1=category_item&WT.z_author=Studio164a). I’m hosting it on Digital Ocean, which is pretty excellent. It took me about 20 minutes to get the hosting & domain set up last night, so wasn’t really a hassle. You do need to have a little familiarity with SSH though
