Check out our [...] theme for a [.....]

I’m sorry to say, but I totally hate seeing this happening all the time :S A buyer gives a very specific feed-back and then, always, some theme authors come up with “hey, we have the perfect theme for you”

I’m sorry to say, but instead, the theme authors should ask for more feedback, they should go in more detail about buyers expectations. Like PremiumLayers did. This is how themeforest can be improved.

Other buyers:
I would only add that please continue with useful feed-back here in this public thread eventually, not in private discussions. It will be incredibly helpful for theme authors and reviewers, for all of us!

You’d be surprised, but most local tax advisers do not know much when it comes to electronic income, international/EU laws and earning money from another countries remotely!

Yes, it’s nice, but a “spring cleaning” would be nice :)
There are a lot of fake accounts, or temporary accounts. Somehow, the accounts that do not log in for more than 12 months should be deleted (similar to what Yahoo does).

Also. old items which do not work anymore or do not have a working demo should be deleted too.

I’m from Cluj, but Brasov or Durau are also great touristic locations. It might be easier to meet in a central location, but I’m sure it’s difficult to choose because we have so many great places :)

I’ve seen that the error appears on pages, not on the homepage.
This means that the permalinks structure is somehow corrupted (most probably you are using now custom permalinks). To fix it back:

step 0: if possible, backup your WP installation folder. step 1: temporary disable all the plugins (important step)
step 2: in WordPress admin dashboard, go to Settings -> Permalinks
step 3: remember or note down somewhere what you have in the custom permalinks field: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0534epzk0c
step 4: temporary enable (switch to) the default permalink: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0f74epyi15 Click Save Changes button.
step 5: verify the website is working now (not everything, because the plugins are disabled, but the preg_match error should be gone)
step 6: switch back to the custom permalinks setting you had at step 3
step 7: enable back all the plugins

The error should be gone.

80-100 requests daily for one product? That seems a lot :) Have you thought of perhaps modifying your documentation and/or item description (to add more information)?

Hi

What part doesn’t work on those devices? The auto-play feature? Or the display of the video?

There is a very useful library that can help with html5 videos compatibilities: http://www.videojs.com/

Use a security plugin like WordFence.

In its settings, configure it to block for 60 days the: more than 1 password-forgot attempts (admin still has access), more than 1 login failure, immediately lock out invalid usernames, etc

In general, set the most restrictive rules with the plugin options page.

This plugin will also help you set the rules in .htaccess file

With this plugin periodically make a full scan of your WordPress folder. The plugins can send you automatic emails if something suspicious is detected.

Periodically make a full scan of your website with sucuri dot net.

If you use a contact form, be sure you use at least a captcha field (there are plugins who do that).

Keep you WordPress core, theme and plugins always up-to-date.

Never use commercial plugins which are nulled from suspicious websites! This is important! They contain malware. Almost always!

Change your admin password periodically and be sure you use a strong password.

Make sure in your web hosting cPanel (or whatever you use) to not give the wrong folder and file access permissions (pay attention especially to public access). Here is a link that might help: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

Recently, there were some vulnerabilities with some websites that were using the PHP mail function (if you are using it too, maybe you could use the SMTP mail instead)

These are the things I usually do with my clients setups. If anyone has other recommendations, please feel free to add to the list.
