yea, that delay is killin me! making me triple post like a noob. even my edits aren’t showing up when I make them. so the post is on the page three times (two of which I’ve edited) but all three original posts are still up and rockin.
Usually there are two emails before its actually in my account (one from ThemeForest and a second from PayPal when the transaction actually occurs). My guess is there’s just some lapse between when the payment emails are sent and the actual payments are processed (likely due to the sheer volume).
honestly I’m still a little surprised that there weren’t measures in place to prevent this in the first place. I thought time limits on APIs were commonplace.
good job though to the devs for being on top of it and quickly tackling the problem.
Ah ok, if it didn’t move through the official upload channels then it could totally make sense. I wasn’t trying to attack, I just thought it deserved a proper explanation.
I was at the Google I/O event when they announced it and current have a dev Wave account. Right now I’m not that impressed. I’ve tried to use it numerous times but right now its still a bit light on features. All the cool stuff they showed in the presentation just doesn’t quite exist yet in the real Wave. I’ve got high hopes for the final release but right now its totally a let down.
Had this happen a while back. I was victim to an iframe injection hack. Change all your passwords (FTP, hosting panel, mySQL, etc). Upgrade all installed software to the latest version (blogs, CMS , forums, etc). Then email your host with a detailed report of what actions you’ve taken and ask for assistance and they should be able to help you from there.
^^Yea I agree. I’m glad its sorted out but it doesn’t explain the initial oddity of the situation. The two files are extremely similar. And one was released by a reviewer only after he rejected the other. So it would seem he either had his own in the works and didn’t want to share his sales or he saw the easy to duplicate functions and made his own.
I mean maybe there is some other way to explain his way out of that, but at this point it looks amazingly shady.
Web developers are generally honorable people who will respect your code.
Web developers usually are. Template/theme creators are not always quite as scrupulous.
Not to knock any authors here at TF specifically, I just know that anyone else who’s been in the template game for a while knows what I’m talking about. You run into more than a fair share of shady characters.
Ah good deal. I’ll go ahead and submit this template now and start working on another for the contest.
