Yes you can do this as this is what all authors do. You may want to introduce a 3 digit version control numbering system so that bug fixes can be like so: V1.0.1 and then if you add a feature it’s v1.1.1 and then if you make a massive update that actually changes a function or something very important v2.0.0. The choice is yours but that’s what we do.
Just to confirm, the updated item with new features, templates cannot be sold as a different item, but rather a free update to existing buyers and a replacement for your old version that is for sale.
Hope that helps.
cmon guys, this roll-out is not for “Themeforest” only. It may not work for certain item type but it will greatly work for most GR and 3DOcean stuff.
Then they should provide unique solutions based on the market as obviously one thing doesn’t fit all unfortunately. As ThemeForest is the largest money earner I don’t see why something was introduced that could disrupt that, not saying the other marketplaces aren’t important, just they need to be more mindful and look at different solutions that work best for each.
Hey, thanks for reporting the issue.
We have a 20 minute grace time to update a comment after you’ve posted it. So for example if the page has been left open for longer than that time you will still see the edit button but if you try to submit it does look like it’s broken. Is this the scenario you have encountered?
If not, please could you provide more information about replicating the issue.Appreciate your help and patience in tracking this down.
As stated, you cannot edit a submitted reply from the dashboard at all, even immediately after you submit. Not waiting 20 mins, but rather immediately.
Also noticed (not sure if it’s the same for everyone) but on the author dashboard if I have an accidental space at the beginning of typing it immediately displays it as code… pretty sure it should not do that either. This is present in safari on latest mac OS X – not sure if it’s the same for everyone.
The lightbox is nice and is perfect for the screenshots, but it should not be added to the main image. The main image should still link to the demo. Most WP themes don’t use screenshots either so it’s very redundant – http://cl.ly/image/1I2h3D2c0X2g Also the screenshots button/link should ONLY display if an item actually has screenshots. If an item only has a main image uploaded then it’s just useless bloat. You can either make the live preview button longer or add a different button instead (download/support).
All of this
Before launching a new theme, ask yourself, will you buy it , and why ?
I’m pretty sure we all actually do this as we don’t just create something for ourselves, but rather research is done and a demand is filled, of course not everyone may do this but I’m pretty sure most do.
As a wordpress user, i see less quality themes, or themes that no one need it at all. Developers need to do some research before releasing themes. i have 149 Items, none of them are used in my projects, just take a look in some of the top salers, Good support, listen to your clients, make updates, more you sale.
So, you are saying we should create themes that are useful, yet you purchased 149 items you don’t use?
Top sellers are top sellers not because they are perfectly coded and designed / supported at all, it’s because you get 10,000 things for the same price as a very well crafted, bloat free zero lock-in, niche theme that serves a dedicated purpose.
Not sure I agree with your input sorry, but everyone is entitled to their opinion of course.
I think Envato has been preoccupied with monetizing support, instead of building a better market place, raising quality levels and also working on ways to attract more buyers, instead of scaring them off with support fees and hidden VAT amounts in check out.
oh how much we need a like button.
