Why Envato doesn’t realize that leaving comments open simply allows buyers to “bypass” the fact he/she has to purchase a support package once expired? If you’re trying to enforce a system, make sure the system cannot be bypassed, otherwise it’s useless.
The buyer won’t care if Envato is forcing them to buy a support package, they’ll just rate the item they purchased 1 star, because the author didn’t answer his question.
That’s why I made this chrome extension
It will alert the buyer if they are about to purchase an HTML version instead of WordPress. I think I should extent it to other categoryhttps://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/elite-buyer/dgkmmjhafnglepkojfebloliajickflc
While the idea of the extension is good, I doubt users who’re not able to recognize what they’re purchasing, will even find that extension :/
Here’s some before and after code in a WordPress plugin if you want a quick example:
Code before:// the _bbps_envato_username was "dtbaker" and _bbps_envato_api_key was my old API key. $api_url = 'http://marketplace.envato.com/api/edge/' . get_option('_bbps_envato_username','') . '/' . get_option('_bbps_envato_api_key',''). '/verify-purchase:'.$purchase_code.'.json'; $response = wp_remote_get($api_url);
Code after:// the _bbps_envato_api_key option is now my new personal token. $api_url = 'https://api.envato.com/v1/market/private/user/verify-purchase:'.$purchase_code.'.json'; $response = wp_remote_get($api_url, array( 'user-agent' => 'dtbaker forums verify', 'headers' => array( 'Authorization' => 'Bearer ' . get_option('_bbps_envato_api_key',''), ), ));
Judging by what i read on the API docs page, I assumed an APP is needed for this. Would i still need an APP if i just wish to verify the purchase?
I’ve seen WP themes doing the same.
Am i dreaming or did i just read they now support OAuth
But, has any open letter made to Envato ever had any effect?
Wouldn’t it be easier for you devs to just provide us with a set of predefined css classes that we can use within the item description? Take as an example the layout of the features list into the description of my most recent WP theme. That’s done with html table. Can’t you just provide the same layout but with predefined css classes for divs?
What happens when that same reviewer is sick or on holiday? Would you rather wait or have someone else take a look at it?
The policy is something like this “certain authors can do that – most can’t”. I’ve had a theme soft rejected a year ago for this same reason. Another theme in the same category, same niche as my theme is however allowed to do so. Go figure… Oh, don’t even bother contacting Envato, they’ll reply with “we’ll look in that”. Yup, it’s been a year now, those logos are still there
