Unfortunately it’s just a cross you’re going to have to bear, take note of the delete text on the item edit screen “once deleted cannot be undone”.
Whilst what you’re doing makes a lot of sense, and it’s coming from a good place, remember the other side of it, “this guy just deleted an old file and re-uploaded it, double exposure etc.”
no, update the existing theme instead, honour your old buyers
Dzinc, I installed WordPress 3.9.1 to my server but when I go into Word Press site to add/upload my theme it doesnt give me the option.It appears it will only allow me to change to another free theme but will allow me to Go Premium but I already bought Inviticus from themeforest, which Im trying to install. Any ideas?
Sounds like you have a blog hosted with wordpress.com, you need a self-hosted WordPress install instead.http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/self-hosted-wordpress-org-vs-free-wordpress-com-infograph/
No problem, for working examples of what I mean, check out some of the $35 themes here:http://themeforest.net/category/wordpress/blog-magazine/personal
These typically represent the lowest level of functionality you’d expect (blog) but also note that the design quality is (mostly) very high, that’s your biggest hurdle
Your theme will only be rejected if it does not work as a WordPress standard functional blog, and if the design is not good enough. Oh, you will be rejected if your code quality is low also.
All theme options & features above that are optional.
Note though, just because you’re making a simpler theme doesn’t mean you want to be right at the bottom of the barrel, give your theme the options and features it needs, just don’t focus on stuffing 1000s in there
That’s why critics of TF themes are kindly asking TF theme authors to develop with
To be fair, any good author here does, I’m really sorry you’ve been caught with a bad author though!
If there’s legitimate issues, Envato Support will definitely help by putting pressure on the author to fix the theme, this may result in the item becoming unavailable for a few days whilst the fixing process takes place.
It’s annoying to wait for Envato Support sometimes, we all know, but sit tight, hopefully they can help you
