I’m sure you’ve made a decision by now but why not just dual boot it as a test run? Or vm if pc fast enough. I never found ps ran that smoothly on Linux but every thing else ia great on Linux

Yes, it’s a wrong way. You should do:
$content = get_option("YOUR OPTION");
echo esc_attr( $content );

esc_attr (or esc_html and others) should be called latest possible.
The reviewers search for “echo $”, and that created us some rejects too, becuase we have a lot of shorthand conditionals like
echo $if_this ? esc_attr($some_data) : esc_attr($other_data);

If you put brackets round the var/equation it won’t come up with searching ‘echo $’ :)

I completely get the escape late etc for security, it can make reusing code tricky, been using functions more.

My latest item design got onto awwwards as a nominee :D If anyone would like to vote for it I would really appreciate it, unless you vote it low then I do not :p.

Hope everyone is having/will have a great day!

Earlier today I hit my 1000th sale, something I couldn’t even imagine not all that long ago when I was attempting to get my first item approved. Thanks to the reviewers for letting me in, the buyers for liking my work, envato for giving me the opportunity to be self employed and the community as a whole for being awesome :).

I think I will try to update one of my themes and explain to reviewer that this is better way of doing it.. :)

Let us know how it goes/went. Or any anybody else that gets this approved.

Its pretty awkward at the moment. I’m finding customers are very confused having the delete and reinstall plugins to update them. They particularly don’t understand why they should have to do that considering so many themes have auto updates. But I’m not allowed to use any of these solutions. It’s really frustrating for authors and customers.

I’m finding a large percentage of those who are contacting support are resellers of some form or another. What happens is when the theme doesn’t do what the end customer wants and they are not capable of customising it, they come to me with demands that are far outside the scope of support.

When I say, I’m sorry customisation isn’t supported they may try other tactics, like telling me all themes do this and so should mine (when I know they do not) or trying to tell me that it’s very bad that there custom code is not working with my theme (when it’s there code at fault). etc.

I certainly don’t want to paint all with the same brush. I’ve had plenty of pleasant interactions with installers and resellers, I have even had a few contact me just to tell me how impressed they were.

Being able to travel was one of the main reasons I starting doing this over staying at the 9-5. I’ve got a VW T4 so sometimes work in that parked up by a beach and sometimes I do this :-) – sadly not my apartment just a holiday rental.
