Why don’t you give a shot at WordPress new feature, External Themes Auto Update.
There is a hook “pre_set_site_transient_update_themes” where you can pass data and than WordPress will know if should update this theme or not, and if yes where to Download the File.
I think the community these days is angry as it was never before.
On lot of themes I see a description like : The last theme you have to buy. This is the end of all creative themes. Other themes are dead with this one.
I think on top of everything we are a community here, so we don’t have to make this kind of marketing, and Themeforest should review this also.
PS : If you think that was the best theme ever, than why don’t you sell it by your own, and leave us community authors selling our themes together.
+n for starting this thread.
We recently deleted a theme of us, and this was for the first time.
So authors who deleted some of their themes, do you still support those themes even though updates on those themes are impossible since it is not located on Downloads tab anymore.
@RubenBristian I thought so, but guess what they rate you once, and not simply with 5 stars .
Sometimes we have like support tickets, with bug reports which we fixed previously, and at that point we tell users to update their Theme in order to fix that specific problem.
The problem is with users, who did customization’s to that theme, as if they update their theme, and they did not used child themes for customization than they will lose they changes.
How do you solve those kind of problems ? Do you support customized themes ?
I had this idea a while back and today had time to put it on paper. Lately many sites are including the notification area, ex: Behance, Dribble and I would love to have one here at TF
Check the screens:
What do you guys think?
I think the part you need to work is the header, slider and the services part, they’re too simple and not unique.
Below those elements, I like how you organized the blog posts, and the typeface of the headings is good for this niche.
My suggestions, play with typography a little more, get that home button out of the navigation or use something nicer, smaller too. The header seems kinda empty with too much unused space. I like how you used the pink color in the below part of the page,maybe play with that in the upper part too?
Apart from those I can only see three pages, homepage, category page, and post page, you should add more stuff like a gallery page, contact page etc., because that’s very few pages.
