My items are over 2 years old and they still have satisfactory sales per month. I haven’t seen much changes to the sales after the introduction of the new search system. I guess it helps to have something slightly more unique and better initial sales to gain the momentum, but that’s how this market works.

Typography and spacing aside, I think it’s probably not unique enough. There are also some bugs. For instance, when you hover at the boxes under Our Work, the ‘More Info’ tooltip has been cut off on the left side. The logo also seems weak and the footer doesn’t seem aligned.

You could have used better graphics to simulate how it would look best on real-world application. I am yet to see any HTML template or WordPress theme being sold currently using placeholders in its live preview. Distorted images really hurt the eyes (and your chances of getting approved) by the way, try not to do that.

What happens if we opt out of this, but still support on our sites, legally you can not stop us from doing this, so our question is how can you stop this from happening?
I’m just wondering why would you want to opt out from this if you can get extra income through support? I mean, you are still providing support anyway, indefinitely but free of charge.

Sounds good. However, I have some questions though.

  1. What is the new method of identification, especially for those in comments where the purchase date is not shown? The API should also be updated for this new feature.
  2. Will there be a way for us to identify immediately whether a buyer is still within the support period if he/she sends an email via the profile page? It’s not convenient to open the verification link for each email to confirm it.
  3. Within the support period, are we required to provide support for the item to work with the latest version of a software? For example, do we need to constantly support the latest WordPress version for our themes, or we can just provide support to the advertised versions?

    It will be an endless cycle to provide support to the latest version because there will always be a buyer who made a purchase within 6 months from the date of release of the new version. On the other hand, I think buyers would expect it to work with the latest version within the support period (imagine you’ve bought a new theme yesterday but it can’t work today after the update, so you’ve contacted the author but was told that the theme would never be updated to run on the latest version although you’re still within the support period).

    I think it’s better to have an option to stop selling the theme while keeping it supported / accessible for another 6 months because if I am not wrong, buyers will not be able to download the item once it’s taken off the market (which happens 1 month after confirming deletion of the item). At least authors can phase-out an old item ‘gracefully’ with such option.

  4. I’m quite eager to see how this will be implemented. Seems like those top sellers will get a lot of extra income from this new policy with their huge customer base.

I think web design trending change too fast. You need improve designs in wp version for this time.
I concur. Your PSD was submitted more than a year ago, and the HTML version was approved in January this year. So, by definition, the design is already older than a year and it does show its age when you compare it with the latest items. If your HTML was approved 2-3 months ago, perhaps they will still accept this WP theme as it hasn’t looked so ‘dated’ yet.

Nevertheless, I think there’s higher standards set for WP themes as there are many submissions to this category at the moment. Good luck!

Only one sale here. I’d prefer the 70% commission which lasts for the whole week though (in previous years). Still, at least it’s better than nothing ;)

Hi Guys! I am a buyer in Themeforest. I am planning to use a Wordpress theme on 3 websites. It’s regular website is for 55 USD but extended license is for a whooping 2750 USD. The latter is simply not possible for my budget.

Is it possible to buy two more instances of same theme for a discounted price (regular license), because I already purchased the theme once?

Thanks!
Hi, you don’t need an extended license for this. You just need 3 separate regular licenses (each for one domain name). You can read more about the license details here : http://themeforest.net/licenses

It will be rated in a few days’ time. Sometimes it takes a while for them to evaluate it, it happened to me in the past.

If it’s still unrated at the end of this week, perhaps you should open a ticket to the support in case they missed it out.
