Oh FFS, why is Envato now emailing the buyers of some of my themes that were never vulnerable, even from version 1 of the theme, as the theme was released with rev slider versions after 4.2, right now you’re costing me support time and weakening my buyer confidence.

I had a few affected themes by this, and I’m glad buyers of those themes are getting emails, that’s awesome, but why the hell are you emailing buyers of themes that are not affected by this!?

EDIT: Oh wait, I know why these buyers are getting emails, it’s because of your lazy list making in the first place. It’s not excusable that because you’re too lazy to actually check the themes in your ‘potentially affected’ list that you’re now emailing my buyers about an issue that never existed in certain themes, your laziness is now costing me time, great.

Almost any theme could do this with Gravity Forms plugin or similar, and some custom development :)

Last problem that i have it is very painful for me is envato reveiw team approve ELITE AUTHOR easily and comfort .

God, seeing this just bores me now, stop looking for an easy way to make yourself feel better, being an Elite Author does not mean we get special privileges, all you’re doing is looking for an easy answer.

Furthermore remember that every Elite author started in exactly the same place as you, just keep working and you’ll get your file accepted eventually :)

If you have an Android phone with chrome installed you can access an even neater feature. You can actually enable USB debugging on your phone then plug it into your computer, then click the menu item on the right, choose “Tools” and then “Inspect Devices”.

iPhone and safari does this too! Must admit I didn’t realise Android did this also, awesome :)

This is awesome! Just testing though and it doesn’t seem to trigger media queries for the chosen device size, anyone else seeing that?

Pffft, only webcam support? What about home visits!

Sure. It also costs to hire employees, and pay the light bills, and everything else. The point is that either using credits or paying a fee is a HIDDEN cost to the user. The advertised price is not the actual price. (Credits are a hidden cost because they expire and you can’t withdraw them easily) All costs of doing business should be reflected in the price up front. Adding a fee after the user has chosen to buy something is a small deception to the customer and a small attack on the author of the item who doesn’t get a piece of the transaction fee.

I completely agree with you (though “hidden” is a little dramatic), but you should know that (thankfully) Envato are currently taking steps to remove these fees, and would therefore scrap the deposit system as well most likely.

So can someone clarify for me?

Wordpress releases constant updates that affect security, stability, etc. A theme needs to stay current with those updates to fully function.

A properly coded theme does not need updates, I have themes that have been error free across 8 wordpress versions now, with no updates.

It’s all about the quality of the developer

I’m still undecided whether to get an iMac 27” 32GB RAM 3.4 GHz or a MacBook Pro 15” 16GB RAM 2.5 GHz — 27” is such a gorgeous and huge display but 15” MBP is Retina. I decided to ditch the idea of the MacBook Air because I need more power. With so many great options is difficult to decide :(
depends if you want to leave the office with it or not :D
I don’t usually leave the office but Retina :/

Retina laptop is mega useful, get a retina MBP and then treat yourself with a 27” display :)
