This is getting rediculous. Months of hard work, for a few hours of exposure…
As a new Wordpress developer, I’d like some help as well. Trying out Visual Composer atm and it seems amazing, if I buy an extended license I can include it in my themes, right?
HTML Templates seriously need a 5$ bump.
I’m about to start my first HTML to Wordpress conversion. I have never used WP in the past, although I have used Joomla and Drupal extensively, have written my own themes for them, and have great PHP knowledge.
How long do you think it will take me since it’s my first time? Any tips? Great resources to read? I have purchased a book and I’m constantly looking at the WP Codex for help.
Finally, do you think it’s worth the time and effort? I’ve heard that WP themes can sell 2x the same HTML version.
Thank you, Nikos
Prices are already almost ridiculously low around here. Although some sale flexibility would be nice.
I would apply since a part time job’d fit me, but I have minimal WP knowledge :/
First of all, let me make it clear that I love Envato, Themeforest and the staff, but there are some glaring issues that could definitely see some improvement.
1) Popular item lists
They dictate the sales an item will eventually get by a large margin. Someone could say that that’s fair, because if you sell enough on your first week, you should be rewarded with more exposure and more sales.
That’s be true and fine, IF WE COULD DECIDE when to release on our items! Example, item no1 gets released on Monday, gets 24 sales through the week, item no2 gets released on Friday, getting 20 sales over just 2 days.
Guess which item gets more exposure. This makes the whole process random and frustrating.
POSSIBLE SOLUTION 1: Show the most popular items of the last 7 days, from Tuesday to Tuesday, etc.
POSSIBLE SOLUTION 2: After approval, we get to decide when to enable our item. Something like a release schedule.
Some people cannot comprehend that customization =/= support or are expecting instant support 24/7. Get a rating of 1 star, scaring customers away from your item.
POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Every rating is accompanied by a comment by the customer, comments are moderated, and can be reported to the staff. Also helps items getting positive feedback even more.
Let me know what you guys think, Nikos
After studying computer engineering for about 4 years (only 1 semester of web design though), I have been working for about 3.5 years as a web designer / developer.
The last 2 years, and after a 6 month period of Themeforest rejections, I finally got in
About your demo, you’re getting there! It’s not half bad, you just need to find your tone (as mafloral said) and practice!
Some tips: Typography is a huge issue, and most new authors struggle with it. Colors are a bit blinding, try more subtle ones. Spacing and alignment is quite good overall, but erratic in some places (ex. the menu items have more padding top than bottom)
Good luck and don’t give up, friend!!!
The progress bar has issues atm, and is not working as intended. Envato is (probably) working on fixing this.
