I don’t work with VC anymore. I got really tired of it’s cluttered interface and growing bloat / limitations.

The whole solution I use is custom and not available for sale on this marketplace. I’m in the process of commercializing it to be sold though from my own site. It has been used to create & launch several fast / responsive sites already.

It allows editing of the Header, Footer, Navigation, Content areas and much more. I created it because of I was tired of fixed themes that claimed unlimited this or that but boxed me in just the same. I have not priced it out quite yet.

Please contact me / send me a message through my profile if you want to discuss further.

If by “Create Themes”, you actually mean “Create Sites” and you’re not married to the idea of having to require use of Visual Composer (a very limited but very popular plugin) then I’ve already done this. There is no such plugin (or VC Add-on) available though AFAIK to do what it sounds like you’re wanting. If there was, I’m pretty sure I would have run across it by now (and perhaps be using it).

My custom solution employs a back-end drag / drop system. Front-end editing isn’t actually any better IMO. You’re just trading features / power for more convenience. It’s nothing more than a trending fad to me. I have no intention of changing my system as front-end editing is so limiting ( as found out from my own development experience ). On the surface Front-End editing appears better in the short-term (for quick wire-framing / prototyping) it can be but for live site / long-term maintenance it’s just not.

I don’t blame anyone (especially the VC author considering the demographic they cater to) for taking advantage off this trend. The back-end is still superior in terms of functionality and power but that could change in a few years or more from now, I suppose.

Even if all your requirements were met (some of which you may wish to re-think), are you willing to pay for such a custom solution? How much in USD and how long would you expect to wait for it to be developed (in weeks / months)?

Such inconsistency with rules is common in Apple’s App Store too (though it’s gotten better). I stopped trying to apply logic though to their procedures / rules simply because I realized there wasn’t any (logic to them) and it was making me a little crazy. Same might be the case here.

Offering extra or bundling scripts is not allowed on CodeCanyon, that’s for sure.

Oh no? Try searching for “Shortcodelic” or “PixGridder” on CodeCanyon. If that’s not bundling, I don’t know what else to call it. ;-) While this practice doesn’t currently bother me, it could get out of control.

Wow. This is pretty shocking. I feel for authors like this. The “tax” that authors pay to keep the reviewers employed (among other things) or more accurately “Envato’s Cut” would seem to be somewhat squandered like government taxpayer money? This should never have happened.

TinyMCE? I thought that had died a death. Will have a look thanks.

Nope, it’s been the default editor in WordPress for years and recently the v4.0.x was integrated into core. Outside WP circles though, I can see how it may have had a lesser impact on news. ;-)

If you ever decided (now or in the future) to make WP plugins out of any of your CC items, etc using TinyMCE in them now could make it that much easier since you’d be more familiar with it at least.


I always thought ckedior was relly heavy

You’re not alone there, it is heavy IMO as well.

If there are such rules governing this sort of thing that are applied with any consistency while reviewing plugin submissions…Perhaps, they bent the rules for that audio playlist item since there’s a reward out for such items at the moment?

Envato seems to reserve the right to suspend their own rules at any time and at their own discretion. I wouldn’t be surprised as it’s pretty common for companies to operate like this regardless of perceived fairness. However, that’s purely speculative (on my part – based on my observations) and so it has little / no basis in actual fact. ;-)

Yeah, it’s definitely a work in progress but it’s do what I need it to do that will only get better. ;-)
