My theme have been soft rejected and one reason is some warnings on theme check.

I am using a library from Github to get tweets and this use curl_init() and curl_exec() functions to get latest tweets. All libraries I found use curl to get tweets. And this functions are showed as warning with Theme Check plugin.

Is there a plugin or library that use WordPress functions and not CURL to get tweets? How are you doing it in your themes?

I developed a wordpress theme that is compatible with a plugin. This plugin is available on free and premium versions (not from codecanyon) and the plugin author gave me a discount code for plugin pro version to offer to my theme buyers.

I want to give them the discount code through my own web page after the buyer enter a purchase code. But obviously I would like to advertise it on the item page and put a link to my site.

Is this allowed on envato market?

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”.

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.

Rather than worrying you should create a kickass theme which will bring a lot of new buyers to ThemeForest;)

+1, it is no use complaining, we all should try to improve and create new better and original themes!

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:

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 :D
+1

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.
