Aww, you know bandwidth and server power is expensive. I guess shared hosting might not fit, considering the huge traffic envato will drive. @digitalimpact: I won’t use cuber, I said something similar as I can built my own 3d slider.Shared hosting should be ok, you might hit some slow server times in the peak of your item time, but I’ve found a “slightly better than basic” shared hosting package does just fine. I’m not a huge powerseller though, so you may seek advice from others with more traffic than myself Best of luck to you!
Yup, it all depends on how popular you are here.
For example, I only have 2 email templates for sale, so I’m a newbie author.
But those 2 items brought up to 200 uniques/day – and I’ve just started authoring…
I can imagine medium/top authors get thousands/day.
Maybe silver paws and up can share a little on this matter
1. For WP Theme Previews – Just upload a zip of the theme folder – you know, index.php, single.php etc (don’t include documentation, PSD , etc) Currently ThemeForest just uses the demo URL you can specify at upload (thus, indeed, hosting the demo on your site).
2. I’d stay off of Cu3er, since it has been overused and it won’t have the effect on sales it initially had. You’d be better of with a jQuery slider in both sales and headaches needed to implement it in WP
Whatcha working on?
If this is about wordpress theme, I read about GPL License that allow people to redistribute the theme even for free… not sure about that? anyone know more info about this?
Yep, that seems to be true… premiummod.com … it seems that if you, as an author, opt for a GPL License on your commercial themes, there’s nothing preventing people to do so…
I’m actually already member!
That’s the second proof that it was spam – first should be that you didn’t subscribe to such emails.
Let us know how it evolves Daniel.
EDIT @Jeffrey: yeah, but I guess it’s still spam…right? I mean, I can’t imagine anyone from Envato sending a referral link to members… or was it not a referral link…?
Amember is a membership software, which is also used by Envato for the Tuts+ affiliate program.
Now I believe you understand where I’m going with this.
Most likely someone has a list of emails that he/she spams with affiliate links to the Tuts+ sites, so he/she can get comissions if a user signs up through their link.
In Gmail: on the right-hand side of the email, click the arrow next to “Reply”, and select “Show original”. You will now see the email header. Look for “Sender” or “Return-Path” to see the originating domain and report them
In the new Yahoo! : select the message, click “Actions” on top of the reading pane, then select “Full Header” and look for the same thing.
EDIT : sorry, I see you already looked at the headers, I’ll leave the explanation though – maybe it’s useful to others
My first theme took 15 rejections before it was accepted.
Holy cow! 15!
Don’t mean to sound rude dude, but quite honestly, the so called “best in the business” are most likely already otherwise employed and won’t bother replying to your call to arms…
I don’t mean to be rude either, but “top of the business” here would be people like Derek Harman, Drew Douglass, Elliot Jay Stocks, Jeffrey Way, Brandon aka epicera or our lovely host, Collis (google their names in case you haven’t heard of them)
Honestly, these guys seem very busy, so I’d suggest “lowering” your standards and describing your project – maybe it turns out your project doesn’t really need “the best of the best”
Again, I’m not trying to be mean either…it’s just how things are…
Good luck with your project
Nice blog you’ve got there Added to bookmarks, will be sure to revisit.
