It seems your form has some bugs since when someone try to apply it indicates validation error for time zone and work hours no matter which values are entered in these fields.

FIxed, thanks for reporting that!


Cents in salary field make me smile :)

@zerostrikes, It’s funny, because it’s true. Well, that’s cool too, my conscience is clear at least, I’ll just have to delete it.

Is this going to be implemented any time soon ?

I’m actually rather confused, why would I “deprecate” the item but still be willing to update it if it contains bug fixes. Why not just leave it for sale if you’re still going to fix any future security issues ?

Because I don’t want anyone else to buy that theme. The theme is outdated to the point of no return, I have no incentive to invest another month to completely rewrite it ( at this point – paid updates might help ? ), but I don’t want to leave people just hanging there with no security updates or critical bug-fixes.

Nice suggestion, may be a two side option. - Remove the item from all place
- Remove from portfolio but keep it available to download for customers. It can be visible on author settings tab as “Deprecate Item” with a option to remove it from here as well

You can already remove the item from all places ( That’s when you Delete the item ) But a “Deprecate Item” functionality is what is needed.


I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but what is need is paid updates :)
That would be great too, but because it’s extremely business involved, I think Envato will probably think about that for another year or three.

What I want is an extremely simple idea, without any business logic involved. And I hope that we can get such a feature in here soon.

Deleting themes from the marketplace is bad for us, and is very bad for Envato.

I would love to delete a theme that I have, but the thing is – if I do – all the people who purchased the theme will never get a single update. For example now – I received a mail from Envato telling me to update a certain item because of an XSS vulnerability. If I had deleted that item a month ago ( when I wanted to delete it ), I would never have gotten that mail, and all the users who bought that theme would still have an XSS Vulnerable site out there.

In my opinion – this is a huge issue. There are items that I want to deprecate, but I can’t pull them out of the marketplace because then people who bought it won’t get any updates if I release them.

TL;DR We need a “Deprecate Item” button, to remove from marketplace/portfolio, but keep the item in users download section.

Thank you @FranklinM2 and @Webcreations907 for the awesomeness! Amazing work – and I have no idea how many hours you just saved me. This makes me love Open-Source even more :)

Hey high-volume authors, drop a waypoint in your analytics and let’s report some data how this has affected conversion rates after 30 days (not 2 days — I know the wolf cry is coming).

Not that good with Analytics. Can you point me in the right direction for some learning material ?
