I love the author paw badges. Great way to see how you compare against other authors, and it creates a bit of competition to reach the next paw quickly.

I propose an additional set of badges (because we all love badges!)

The new set of badges will show how many sales you are making per week. $0-$100, $100-$300, $300-$500, $500-$1000, or whatever.

This will allow new authors to see how they are comparing against some of the authors who have been on the marketplace for years. It also means us old lazy authors can move “down” the ranks over time, unless we release new updates and new files.

I think something like this would create an extra level of healthy competition between authors (ie: motivate old authors to release new files if they see new members beating them), and also reassure new authors by showing that they are on par or better than others with high sales counts.

http://dtbaker.com.au/webimages/leaf2.xcf low quality gimp attempt. ~28 frames.

i’d recommend wacking it into a 3d program, applying a nice shadow as it spins, exporting a gif

our first try on themeforest was a grudge theme…. we flushed it because it has no niche where it can be used….. sorry, but that is the truth. i like this theme and your wok in general but this has no niche. :(

My themes are always a little different and so far its working well for me, I really struggle to do mainstream stuff and am happy with just a few sales a day over a long period of time. Thanks for your feedback.

Hello fellow Themeforesters!

I’ve have a new design for themeforest, I submitted to the PSD category and it was rejected for the below reasons. I would like some feedback on the layout before I construct it into HTML . Any suggestions are appreciated :)

Full size: http://tf.dtbaker.com.au/template/forum/2-sport-grunge-home.jpg

Full size: http://tf.dtbaker.com.au/template/forum/3-sport-grunge-full-width.jpg

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this template. Unfortunately, due to our high standards, your template has been declined.

1) This is not aesthetic ready for psd template category.

2) This is more suitable for site template category and has the potential to get accepted as site template. I recommend to directly convert this into HTML /CSS and re-submit.

3) It may required some improvements before get accepted under site template.

4) Impressed by your efforts in trying to provide unique template, but this template is not good enough for PSD category, I think it will required some improvements in terms of graphics and typography even for site template category. - -

Hayley

I’m thinking about including my wordpress plugin bundled in my next wordpress theme. All styled nicely etc..

Is that a good idea?

Alternatively I could just advertise my wordpress plugin within the item description, but having it bundled could create more of an incentive to buy.

I useto be a zend studio 5.5 fan boy, but over the past 6 months I’ve completely converted to PhpStorm from JetBrains.

Here’s the website: http://www.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/index.html but I strongly recommend you head over here and download the PhpStorm 2 preview: http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/WI/Web+IDE+EAP

I use the PhpStorm 2 preview every single day for every single project. Great FTP and SVN support, the refactoring tools give me goosebumps, and the “intellisense” is wicked ! Biggest bonus, it doesn’t run sluggish like any of those recent horrible eclipse/zend ide’s.

(they release a new free phpstorm 2 preview every few weeks with more features and bug fixes too)

A lot of the big guys take shortcuts to save bandwidth. eg: use <script> instead of <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">.

I wouldn’t say you “need” to be valid. But it’s certainly something to aim towards. Taking a shortcut or using old html tags could cause a page to display wrong on some of the newer browsers or mobile devices.

haha!!

i’ve just done it: http://gokcayon.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/wordpress-email-newsletter-plugin.html lol win.

code if other’s want to play:

put a .htaccess file in your image directory with this in it:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ imagehack.php [L,QSA]
create a file called imagehack.php with this in it:
<?php
$ref = trim($_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']);
$safe = array(
    'codecanyon.net',
    'dtbaker.com.au',
    'hayleycrook.com',
    'themeforest.net',
);
if($ref){
    $has_safe_host = false;
    foreach($safe as $s){
        if(preg_match('#'.preg_quote($s,'#').'#i',$ref)){
            $has_safe_host = true;
            break;
        }
    }
    if(!$has_safe_host){
        mail('david@blueteddy.com.au','ref: '.$ref,'ref');
        header('Content-type: image/gif');
        readfile('warning.gif');
        exit;
    }
}
$file = basename($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
if(is_file('renamed_'.$file)){
    $data = getimagesize('renamed_'.$file);
    header("Content-type: {$data['mime']}");
    readfile('renamed_'.$file);
    exit;
}
?>
rename any images with a “rename_” prefix and away you go :P

note: i know some “internet security” suites and proxies like to mess with http referrer data, so use this at ur own risk :)
