Envato should scrap the proposed multipurpose category idea and just make a new marketplace. bundletundra.

Both MAMP and XAMPP basically turn your Mac into a server, which you don’t really want, so if you ever do system updates to the OS, it has the potential to throw your MAMP etc.. build into a bit of a spin. Which will happen at some point.

I use, and truly recommend, Vagrant – https://www.vagrantup.com/

Yes, you have to use the command line (but if you don’t know how to, you’re a bit of a poop dev anyways), but it’s so easy to spin up a new server, and everything is virtualized, so it does not interfere with your system files.

Try it. You’ll truly thank me in the end :)

Chill folks!!

Few pointers. Improve your Typography choices. Have you used Google Web Fonts? Take your time finding great combinations there. Look at some items on TF. Look at Adobe Color CC for suitable colour schemes.

Increase your font size, tighten up your alignment issues, increase on the whitespace in places. The Parallax sections look broken on larger monitors, add larger images there.

It’s not the most dreadful thing I’ve ever seen, but it does need a lot more thought on the basics of great design.

Good luck!!

He will laugh after reading this – like “Yay, I win”, and I’m laughing more after seeing your elite badge. A long standing elite author should be able to handle such thing easily. That’s how markets work, even in real world. People buy, they don’t like it, they tell their friends.

You just have to let off some steam from time to time!! My apologies for being human.

I’m a long standing Elite Author. I’m used to these kinds of things. But this one just took it to a new level.

Hi folks,

The following buyer hit me with a 1er. This is getting ridiculous now!! No way of responding to these buyers. Bring the issue up with Envato, they basically tell you to go away. I’ve taken a few bad reviews on the chin, but this one seriously!!!!!!!

The documentation is written on the surface of matters. It’s a quick read and does not prepare me for real use of the theme. I know I don’t have much patience. Some of us are made like that. Sorry.

The documentation for hecks sake!! This is documentation that is quite thorough, for what is probably the most basic theme I have released.

Hi,

It looks a little broken in my browser (Chrome). The font size on some of the type is also insanely small. 13px for the body copy? Always aim for a minimum of 14 for the body. 11px for the Widgets? Too small dude. The same goes for the social icons.

cheers

So this is a GOOD change, but please increase the prices for multi-purpose themes or at least MULTI-THEMES PACKED INTO ONE, ehem ehem the ONE-LETTER-THEME.

Simple logic Envato – You purchase 6 sausages they are X price. You purchase a pack of 12, the price is slightly increased. Strange that?! Never quite worked that one out!!
