Hey Guys, any update on ability to post comments via API? It would be really helpful to be able to shift answering comments to somebody as with increasing number of sales it’s becomming a full time job.
Or at least ability to assign “Support” role to other Envato users, so that they can answer comments directly inside theme area.

So, Did you happen to ever write that article? I was looking up mvc template engines, and wondering if there were any umls’/best practices, etc, ran across this article, nominated for best paper. http://www.cs.usfca.edu/~parrt/papers/mvc.templates.pdf
We never wrote any article, but check out our theme framework API if you’re interested: http://api.ait-themes.com

We’re working on a new one so this will be obsoleted soon ;)

An outdated plugin, it may contain outdated codes and may not work in the latest WP.
As I said earlier, I would like to modify that plugin code and then include it in my theme.

If the plugin is GPL and you want to base your own plugin on it’s code you can take the plugin, extend it (!) and include in your theme. That’s one of the reasons people use GPL for their work.

I don’t want to start a war thread again, but what’s the point of releasing your theme as 100% GPL if nobody can continue in your work to make it better but have to start from scratch? :)

You can take a GPL theme, edit and release under your name with a contribution to the original author. That’s completely legal even if the theme is not free and you had to pay for it. Question is if this theme will be approved for sale here on Themeforest.

If the author is on vacation and you have a deadline why don’t you hire a web developer? If it’s a small bug you’ll get it fixed in no time.

Please also consider that themes sold here won’t be supported forever. There will be a time when author decides to stop supporting the theme. Check out the following thread: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/lifetime-free-theme-updates/104160

Hi,

I’ve not read each post, but you’re talking about an SLA.

It could be considered as opt-in to the authors having an option for a (discounted) renewal, so if someone buys an item he’ll get 1 year of free support. After that, download will be replaced by a renewal subscription. Could (!) be handled easily (and discussed heavily).

On the other hand most auf the authors are developing their items further adding new features and stuff. So if the item reaches a new major version (let’s say 1.9.2 > 2.0) this could be the point where the author decides “yeah, the item advanced a lot so I’d like to have a (rather) small fee for my efforts”. This could be also done as opt-in for the author by selecting a percentage of the selling item price (defined by envato).

There are many pro’s and also many con’s to be considered.

2 bucks…

Yea that’s exactly what I had in mind. Large theme updates and support are currently being done free of charge. What’s even worse that customers expect you to implement all changes from your newer themes to your older ones and yes – for free :)
