Hey @akshay!

Glad to hear it, I know there was a shakeup when Dan left and that has obviously left the catchup work you mention.

Great to see you here in the forums keeping us up to date! :)

I just wanted to say that if you could state loud and clear on your item page that the item is a HTML template, not a WP theme, the buyers will not be confused anymore :) ... Maybe a big button, or a h3 statement

There’s a reason authors do not want to do this, who wants a negative statement in bold at the top of their item page?

Imagine if you went to buy a new iMac and the first thing you saw on the sales page was “Note: THIS ISN’T A MAC PRO!”

does it also solve the 2 icons appearing in the visual composer shortcodes list

Yeah, my Gists above cover that, only the wrapper element is selectable from the main area, and then only the content element is selectable when you click on the wrapper.

On this Gist: https://gist.github.com/tommusrhodus/698122d1fe22a2489bae

See line 167 (as_parent) and 198 (as_child).

Cheers!

If we ever reach that status, I ‘ll be flying to Australia to make sure that they do something for us :D

Given how awesome your recent themes have been, I’d wager you’ll be heading to Australia sooner than you think :)

Maybe there just wasn’t a new Power Elite author since then.

Sadly there’s been quite a few, a quick browse here: http://themeforest.net/author/top_authors

Will show at least 5 that are power elite and have no listed interview.

Looking here: http://marketblog.envato.com/category/milestones/

Looks like we havn’t had a power elite interview since November, I know there’s been a shakeup to the Elite handling team, but this definitely seems a shame to me. When I first started we used to celebrate a day for the author, then that got downgraded (IMO) to a less advertised blog post. Now sadly it seems even these may be behind us, which seems a shame.

When I first joined was when Kreisi (I think, maybe Peerapong?) became the first Power Elite and the banner on the marketplaces sent shivers down my spine, $1m in sales, wow, that was something to strive for! We should keep that feeling for new authors today :)

Hey everyone :)

Here’s some gists of my own blocks:

1. This example is just really simple, the main shortcode is simple enough to not need any options or globals applied, it simply wraps the innner shortcodes.

https://gist.github.com/tommusrhodus/0e9932214e8bf81ad1b9

2. This is a much more complex block, both the wrapper and nested shortcodes have options applied to them, furthermore they require globals to collect additional data and render it outside of the $content.

https://gist.github.com/tommusrhodus/698122d1fe22a2489bae

Hope that helps even a bit :)

Since TF-Team needed less than 48hr for the hard-reject, it seems they find something obvious for them but pretty much non-transparent for us (or they did not invest enough time to look through it? we simply do not know the right answer….)

The rejection notice you got (although short) tells you exactly why the theme was rejected, it’s design is simply not strong enough, regardless of features, design quality comes first.

My point is as you are paying a professional people will expect you to deal with any problems that may come up.

Not for a fixed price though, if you take a car to a mechanic for an oil change and then ask them to fix your exhaust, you’ll be charged accordingly. Sadly the Envato Express Install service does not have an option to cater for this (unforseen issues).
