Happy Holidays everyone, hope you all have a great time.
Lol, I’m unsure why on earth I’ve been singled out here having not mentioned any themes personally until MuffinGroup waded in to attack my sales numbers. Plainly: 66 full demos is unsustainable, what’s next, 300+ demos? If we get to a point that a theme needs to have 50+ demos just to even reach its first sale then this place is doomed. the point is if we’re all just trying to out-do each other on the amount of demos we can show for each product, then something is wrong.
Also the shift away from design to multi-everything is alarming, buyers get unrealistic expectations of what they will be able to do with standard themes.
Hello fellow Brits
2, not a bad start. Good luck for December sales everyone.
That really clears it up for UK and hopefully others too, thanks for sharing @ThemesDepot.
Just got my first 1 star rating because of “lack customization”. The theme is using page template and have meta box for each template for customization. Have live customizer (color) for almost all element. Some buyers think that “customization” is have page builder, 50 Header, 50 Footer etc. It just 1 from 100+...Still many of buyers don’t think like that. But, if market is full with “mega theme” 1 will become 100 fast.
That is worrying, I do hope buyers don’t expect every theme to come with the crazy (and often useless) amount of options.
My main concern is how all this ‘only need to ever buy this theme’ promotion is making it seem ok to reuse over and over without purchasing multiples of an item.
I am very disheartened to see these bloated, and often buggy, themes outsell everything else time and time again. It seems to only be getting worse.
127 – thanks to recently released theme.
The adventure of owning envato with them footing the bill of transferring ownership to me
Congratulations WebSmacker. I got my black/level 4 paw too thanks to my first wordpress theme being accepted
I’m not, they are loaded by wordpress and my own ones I’ve turned off. I’ve isolated the problem to wp-admin.min.css. If I deregister this, then I lose wordrpessess styling but then the other admin styles load, in particular the media and buttons styles. If I delete the contents of this file also, the other scripts load. It’s a massive file, so I would guess it’s reaching a limit in ie9 but then, why not on other pages which load just the same scripts? It’s baffling me. I can load my own styles for the panel and register the media styles to load before wp-admin.
