Nicely said, but how can we charge for Wordpress 3.9 updates now ;)
I’m not a WordPress developer, but I don’t see anything in the 3.9 release notes related to updates. How is this situation different now?

There’s a brand new WYSIWYG editor that is not compatible with the old one. None of the shortcode buttons work etc. We’ll have to fix it and then release an update to all 40+ themes.

Summary: charge for value.

Authors can’t (no sustained revenue). Buyers suffer (abandoned item). Envato wins (flooding new items).

If you’re not making moves to fix this for yourself and your customers, you’re part of somebody else’s strategy.

But of course, this is the most sure way people buy them and envato earns. On the other side this is the way how majority of other themes die off. BTW this thread will get locked soon I presume :)

My point was not to offend anybody. I completely understand why it’s done that way. Great selling theme is a huge catch for new authors and big marketing advantage. If there were thousands themes selling equally it wasn’t such a big thing ;)

It’s a part of strategy here on themeforest. All themeforest adverts will bring you to Popular files page that shows you always the same themes. People usually don’t bother looking for any other theme just purchase the best selling one even though there might be better alternatives.

Hey, you might have a look at our Directory or Business Finder themes. You can disable the map and also import data using CSV.

Have a look at our most recent theme called Langwitch. You can test admin panel before purchase. And everything is fully localized to german ;)

We have an issue with our most recent theme. Theme suggests 96MB of PHP memory limit setup up in order to work safely. Theme cannot pass through reviewal process because of that.??

Is is a new rule we have to follow? If yes – why isn’t such a thing written in Wordpress theme submission guidelines?

Many best selling themes are suggesting 128MB in their documentation and support forum. ??

Default memory limit PHP is suggesting in general is 128MB: http://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.memory-limit??

Just to make it clear – our theme will install with less memory than 96MB, but if you activate new plugins and have more pages or you’ll be making big imports/exports you’ll come to a point that it’ll stop working (as any other theme). You’ll end up with not working website just because you didn’t increase your memory limit right at the beginning.

I’ve opened also a support ticked but would like to hear an official statement regarding that as it might help other authors as well.

Cheers.
