Regarding CodeCanyon Marketplace the following licenses are needed: 1) From perspective of a buyer: Developer License, allowing the buyer to use it on client projects (maybe splitted into sections: 2 domains, 5 domains, unlimited…) Also ALL Licenses on CodeCanyon need to be overseen and maybe updated for the use with WordPress Multisite installations!
2) From perspective of a CC author: - Also a Developer license, see above! - A special “ThemeForest Usage License” for ThemeForest authors, with a special price! - Choose different Licenses per item, so Regular, Extended, Developer etc. - Bump the price of Extended License! - Implement a system that lets author decide whether or not the item could be used within in Multisite installations, regarding the license price especially!
Regarding ThemeForest Marketplace the following licenses/ changes are needed: —> nearly the same as above applies! —> especially usage for WordPress Multisite installs and multi-domain and/or client usage is neccessary —> a Developer License for (WP) Themes would be nice but for plugins it’s even more needed!
Applying these changes would BENEFIT ALL INVOLVED, Envato, all authors plus all buyers/users!
Also, reading your license updates, license landing page plus the FAQs really confused me!!! Still, after reading this stuff multiple times it’s not clear most of the times what’s allowed in real life and what’s not.
Especially for all things WordPress: REAL LIFE USAGE EXAMPLES for all Licenses regarding WordPress items on ThemeForest and CodeCanyon would HELP all authors & users/buyers involved. In the current state it always leads to long discussions/ debates because the essential things are unclear to lots of (new) authors plus users/buyers!
You could use this free plugin for that: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/fg-joomla-to-wordpress/ – it also has a pro version with special features for “K2” – see plugin description there.
@mesunil2010: I would suggest to spend more time on your presention for your items. Add more and better descriptions/ use cases. Why not add some screenshots also to the description? Make better preview & thumbnail graphics. Improve your personal profile presentation (graphics!).
This could be one factor more for improvement.
I wouldn’t buy your theme in the current state
- it’s too generic and uses a mixture of design elements, including some outdated stuff (imho) like the shadows…
I am not seeing some unique style here but mostly concepts that are common for years now.
Thanks for some great tips in this thread here – and the free templates link As I am planning to release my first plugin here soon, this will really help new authors! Thanks, Dave
That would just call Genesis and should work all properly. The child theme “Avett” here on TF is currently using this way.
Other Genesis child themes here from third-party authors have no index.php file included (just checked my downloads) but they placed the actual theme into a subfolder (that contains the actual child theme zip) of their download package.
Maybe this helps.

P.S. Can’t wait to see your them
I am a customer “only” here on Envato marketplaces currently—maybe I’ll release WordPress plugins in the future but not now.
However, from my consumer point of view “Bundles” make no sense at all! Why should I buy a bundle with for example 2 WordPress plugins in it when I then get NO updates for these plugins later on???
For updates I have to re-buy these 2 plugins later and then would have lost some money—especially when I don’t care for about the 90% of “products” in these bundles.
This is not the kind of benefit I for myself I am after!
I’d rather love some discounts if I am buying more than one plugin at once – beeing it more than one licenses of one plugin or various different plugins. This would be more helpful for all parties involved!
Also, the search and listing system here is really outdated and should be improved in all aspects. Please, Envato, implement better filters, search refining, tagging and so on!
The ZIP archives for WordPress plugin files should also be standardized to avoid user confusion and better handling for authors, Envato and customers!
I have bought lots of stuff here already and will do so more – but please listen to your customers, Envato, we bring you the money at all
Thanks for listening, Dave from Germany
