I think it will be posible if the buyer modificate/use your item to create a different end product, but I am almost sure that nobody can upload envato items to GitHub or other public repository “as-is”.
See this FAQ http://themeforest.net/licenses/faq#redistribute-a
Yes, Envato need to do something about forum spam, it has become annoying.
I am using TGM plugin on multisite without any issue. First of all check if you are logged in with administrator role. If yes, you should deactivate all your plugins, maybe any of theme is causing the problem.
If this doesn’t work, try changing to other theme to check if is a issue with the theme.
If nothing of this work, you should read this https://github.com/thomasgriffin/TGM-Plugin-Activation/issues/228
I hope this help you.
There are plenty of dedicated web apps for customers support (helpscout, zendesk, etc…), all of them have their api, Envato, instead of creating their own support system, should just provide tools/apps/plugins/extensions for these existing tools instead of wasting resources and time on creating their own, which will most likely never be up to par with existing tools.
+1, as the saying goes, don’t reinvent the wheel!
I know that if envato want to control the support system, they must embed a support on the marketplace, but creating a whole support system will take a lot of time right now. It need to be based in others existing tools IMO. I am looking forward to seeing what happens with this.
Thanks you guys for your replies. I have found this posts that explain how to make pull automaticaly with php scripst like @jyostna says:http://jonathannicol.com/blog/2013/11/19/automated-git-deployments-from-bitbucket/ http://brandonsummers.name/blog/2012/02/10/using-bitbucket-for-automated-deployments/
Also I think this can be done with capistrano.
Local Repo + Github + auto deploy to server
How do you auto deploy to server?
I just started using git to put my wordpress themes under version control. Currently, I work on local and push my code to Bitbucket and from time to time I upload to live server with FileZilla.
I have notice reading the forums that a lot of author here are using Bitbucket or GitHub. How is your workflow using these remote repositories?
-Do you deploy your code from BitBucket/GitHub to live server? Or do you upload it directly from local to live server?
-If you do it from Bitbucket (I would like do it this way), how are you doing? Do you use services like https://www.deployhq.com/ or server automotion tool like capistrano?
I think that I can automate my workflow a bit more and I would like to know about how others developers do it.
The buyer’s survey results are depressing
Like @GDragoN says, buyers definitely needs more information about support. Some of they doesn’t understand how Envato Marketplace works, doesn’t know that they purchase items from differents authors and that support depend of the author
You can read a lot of forum threads asking support for items because some buyers doesn’t see the support tab and they don’t know where to ask for help.
Support information should be almost on item description page and Envato help pages, and maybe also in post-purchase page or confirmation email.
Also I think that support rating or badges will be great, it would be a good way to instruct buyers and reward authors with great support.
I have a theme in my portfolio (T-one theme) that have a moderate success, mostly due to its design. It have a very good design, I think, but it have few features and specific sections for the home page. A lot of buyers has told me that they like the design but the theme is not very flexible.
So, I would like to create a new theme with the same design, but with important new features like a page builder, woocommerce and maybe something more. The theme name would beT-one Pro.
Would this be possible? Is allowed from marketplace guidelines?
I want to agree with other author here to convert a PSD template to WP theme. I want to use a plugin in the theme, but what would be a fair way of share the cost of the plugin? Is fair all the plugin cost to goes to me?
Please tell me your experiences / opions
