Hey guys, would like to hear your thoughts on which route to go down in the UK.

Self-employment seems to be a lot simpler than opening a ltd company, but LTD companies have limited liability which is always a good thing.

What do you UK authors do? And how have you found what you decided to do?

Well I am thinking that if I make a theme and someone buys the extended license, what that allows them to do with it? And as an author would I need to do anything in particular for the theme? Would you be allowed to include GPL or MIT licensed packaged scripts with the theme and still be allowed to sell an extended license?

Hi guys. I was reading through the licenses – http://themeforest.net/licenses but I just don’t understand why anyone would want to buy an “extended” license for a theme?

It says “Use in an end product that’s sold (more than one end user allowed)”

Can someone please give me an example how this applies to a theme? Cheers

I have been reading through the guidelines of all the big social media websites, and they all have big policies and guidelines about usage of their logos, and all of them don’t allow their logos to be used as they are used in 99% of themes.

I’m confused, do authors get permission to use them? Or do social media websites not really care?

Oh come on guys…. After reading through this thread all I can say is Envato is really muddling things up.

All this “ask authors for permission” crap will only lead to confusion and problems. Theme forest authors wanting to use CC plugins is a VERY specific usage, simply give CC authors an option box that says “If you purchase an extended license – I grant you permission to include this plugin with themes that are sold exclusively on TF.” which then shows up underneath the extended licence option. It should be crystal clear for everyone to see what a TF author can and can’t do with CC plugins.

When it comes to the law and money, the idea of “private emails” seeking permission is down right silly and will lead to infinite amounts of serious issues.

P.s As prezzz pointed out, slider revolution includes a disclaimer at the end granting permission for TF authors to use the plugin in their themes. Why would a CC author need to put this in the item description? It should be standard checkbox under the extended license option (as stated above)

I am planning to sell a theme on themeforest soon and there are a couple of plugins such as flickr widgets and such that I would like to install on my theme demo site to show what a final site can look like. Of course these are free plugins from the repository, and therefore available to anyone who buys my theme, so there is no point including it with the theme itself.

Is this allowed? Or can a demo site only show what comes in the theme zip file? Thanks guys

Hello,

I am currently looking for a e-commerce plugin that is compatible with woocommerce. And all it needs do is:

- I will only be selling digital files and they will all cost $10 each. If a user buys more than 1 digital product I want it to offer the second (and any other products they buy) with a 50% off. So for example, if a user buys 1 file, they pay $10. If a user buys 2 files they pay $15, if a user buys 3 files they pay $20. Essentially, the first product will always cost $10 and any others they buy at the same time costs $5 each.

Does anyone have anything similar or know of the easiest way to develop it? Thanks

Hello,

Does anyone know of any wordpress plugins that do the nice hover-image-show-preview of image? I am after what Envato use in all of their websites (When you hover over a product, you get a medium sized preview).

I can’t find this exact effect for wordpress, anyone know of any?

Thanks

Thanks Bluntaxe. I did know of DownloadShop but it’s not as close to what I need as the template I saw some time ago! I’m pulling my hair out trying to find it!

downloadshop has small thumbnails but apart from that I could get any ecommerce template and customize it, I was hoping to find something closer already so I wouldn’t have to heavy-customize :(

Thanks again, and if you do remember please let me know! thanks

I have been looking for hours for a good wordpress ecommerce theme that is “stock photo” style. I think I saw one a long time ago but can’t find it anywhere!

I want to make a shop that sells loads of stock photos, but without the credits system, I’m after one that is:

- Easy to navigate through 100’s of images, - Uses small thumbnails to navigate that with mouse hover shows a quick bigger preview, - When you click a photo you go to basic product page (photo doesn’t need much info) - Straightforward payment with paypal/card

Surely there must be one out there that at the very least has potential for all this and that I could customize slightly!

Any suggestions of themes you may know of guys? I’d be very thankful :) Cheers
