Yup noticed this also. What’s the deal?

I don’t want to opt-out of support (who want’s that nasty badge saying we don’t support our items – when in reality “why wouldn’t we”)... but give us the option to opt-out of the extended option.

I don’t want to be contracted into selling an item on ThemeForest for 1 year after the last purchase date of an extended support pack (btw that I barely made anything off of). Basically if I ever wanted to remove an item here, I’d have to say I don’t support it for a whole year, THEN I can take it off the marketplace, to put it elsewhere, give it away, etc.

Ironically, who will want to buy a product that’s been presumably “unsupported” for the last year?

See where I’m coming from here? You’re catching us authors in a net to keep us here on Envato Market (and away from rising competitors) OR to revoke our exclusivity – so that you make even more $ off of us.

This! Exactly this! Envato have simply introduced a tie-in for authors and this doesn’t make the experience better for anyone apart from Envato.

Yes it’s a default of WordPress that should be supported by any good theme (as it’s part of the core experience) – just like you use a read more tag you can paginate your single post article – here’s the tag to use when in TEXT/HTML editor of the post:

Ah I see, no you should contact the author. Look in your documentation for how to obtain support, or alternatively go to the product page here at ThemeForest and click the support tab to see how to gain support if offered by the author.

I can’t replicate this issue. Are you referring to ThemeForest? If so I don’t see this but I’m using FF on Mac.

Well after all is said and done, it would be very nice to think that ALL authors would simply opt out. This way we stand together. Every single item would then state no support, no one would be different in anyway. It would send a very strong message to Envato, especially if they are not earning a single cent from this silly idea. I know…. it’s a pipe dream.
I would support this and also notice to clients that I provide support on my own terms and only my own available time.

yes exactly buddy.

If an individual author offered you ‘lifetime free support’ then that is between you and the author (seller) not Envato unfortunately. I would recommend contacting the individual authors who advertised this free lifetime support.
Yes, it seems that all that stuff is easy only for Envato. I mean, it’s advertised here on their marketplace, my payment goes to them and it seems that they are never responsible for anything….

I understand the frustration. Unfortunately last year Envato altered their standing of how and what they are and changed to simply a ‘platform’ that facilitates the transaction and delivery of files only.

Hi there, i’m not an author or a seller – but a buyer. What’s with all the stuff i bought here, all advertised with “lifetime support”? Am i now forced to buy support-packs and extensions for them? Or am i eligible for a refund, because the items don’t fulfill the promises, the description once gave to me? And my buying decision was based on that.

The affiliate program here at Envato just isn’t that good unfortunately. The way it works is if that person has EVER come here before via another link at anytime then your link does not count as an introduction and no earnings.
