That logic might make sense if support was included in the price you paid (but it’s not – according to Envato). Since it’s not, the authors are free to do what they please regarding support (within reason). They’re not obligated to to offer support at all but many still choose to do so. No one is entitled to support. It is a privilege here, not a right. So, please do not begrudge authors for how they choose to provide a free service!
If you haven’t noticed yet, searching the item comments area is not yet possible. Not only can comments to authors sometimes get easily missed but buyers also can’t search for repeat questions that already have answers (FAQs).
Authors redirect customers to their support site in a (often seemingly) futile attempt to keep the comment area somewhat clearer for the simpler presale questions while providing a more organized discussion area to describe the potentially more difficult / detailed questions. Unlike the comment area, a separate support area can also allow private login information to be disclosed should the author need to personally login / inspect a site issue directly.
I don’t imagine that reviewers get to choose to confine themselves to their preferred / core disciplines do they?
If there’s choice, I’d consider this. Otherwise, I’d have no interest in reviewing items for Ghost, Muse, Drupal, Magento, etc. There’s only so much new stuff I can take in these days and honing my laundry list of skills above keeps me quite busy.
The good thing is its looks like its fully responsive
Yep. WooCommerce will be responsive too and actually REQUIRE WP 3.8 for a number of reasons.http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/woocommerce-21-beta-1-is-ready-/115626
Since the shortcodes / generator demonstrated in the video are probably already a separate plugin due to the (not so) new TF theme guidelines, do you have plans to offer it stand-alone as a CodeCanyon item as well?
I would be very interested in purchasing it as a CC plugin rather than as an inextricable part of a theme I may not care entirely for. Those that purchase your new theme could just get the CC item bundled as (free) bonus then. Why limit your audience (for such a potentially use item)?
The plan is to allow the beta(s) to run through Christmas, with a release candidate early Jan quickly followed by a stable release. So 2.1 will be released in January, so long as WordPress 3.8 is out.
That gives theme and plugin developers at least a month and a half for testing. You have been warned
The most pressing requirement is that WC 2.1 requires WordPress 3.8. Why? MP6.With the admin redesign in 3.8 we’ve worked on the look and feel of WooCommerce itself – this obviously works flawlessly in 3.8, but older versions will look rough around the edges. Please test with 3.8 when possible and only raise UI issues with this version.

Hello and Welcome. You mean you want a WordPress Theme. Themes are made up of several templates (of multiple kinds) usually.
Maybe this will help…http://lmgtfy.com/?q=themeforest+wordpress+vertical+fullscreen+slider
New admin skin is awesome.
I’ve noticed a common theme present itself, authors that decided to use non-native elements over what the WP UI already offered have had the most visual / layout problems. I’ve been playing with MP6 since 3.6 and it’s definitely grown on me.
I hate seeing loads of flashy GIFs all over a page
