Is there a way we can improve the review process for security updates Stephen. A separate queue for example? Just some way of getting the fixed item up quicker? Maybe a checkbox on upload that states ‘security update’ that gets to the top of the list or a different queue.
Maybe one day! But for now you just need it leave a note when you upload. We should be able to find that easily enough and these updates have priority.

Yes we did this / do this when uploading. OK well I guess they are busy with updates right now, no problem. Thanks for the reply.

I think you can copy, and maybe put a link to their post. :) I don’t know. But you can copy the title and still use Lorem ipsum… in the content.

No you can never copy anyones work without their permission or appropriate licensing.

Thank you guys, I know I could use lorem ipsum but I thought real stuff would make it more realistic :)

There are some Lorem Ipsum generators that don’t do latin, in fact there is one for pretty much everything – stick to something that could never cause issue. You are correct in thinking that real-world text can look better to prospective buyers (for whatever reason).

There is absolutely a benefit in being #1 – therefore there is absolutely a benefit in reaching that target by spending 30% of a discounted bulk rate – it’s absolutely a viable and affordable marketing plan. You don’t have to be #1 to see benefits either, so the ‘investment’ doesn’t need to be thousands of copies. Just a well organized plan will receive a good return on investment.

Use one of the many free lorem ipsum generators either online or downloading a little app. Alternatively search for books out of copyright – there are many classics that you can use.

@rdavenport the theme wouldn’t be approved here if the WP DEFAULT import wouldn’t work.

I may be wrong here but I’m pretty sure that the review process does not actually use the demo content or setup of plugins – purely testing of the theme code for WP standards and import of the test data to display all widgets, sticky posts etc.

This means: import as usual with the WP importer

If an author decides to provide demo content with a theme, it should work.

You can’t argue with this :)

jonathan01, you make a good point. I’m aware that not everybody is “starting from scratch”, and may be just swapping to a different theme.

I think if the authors where clear with their language and clearly explained that one option will completely overwrite the website, and one will simply change the theme, then things would be ok.

Absolutely, unfortunately more options = more chances of mistakes. It’s a tricky one for sure. Thanks for your input tho mate.

@ jonathan01: One-click install feature should never erase anything from the database. I don’t even think that a theme that does this would be accepted today on Themeforest.

I can assure you they are available, and can do this – these are real-world experiences reported to me from authors and installers from Envato Studio.
