When you get a plugin ‘bundled’ with a theme you do not own a license. You have to wait for the author of the theme to actually update the theme with the latest build of the plugin as a theme update. Otherwise you will need to purchase your own individual license to gain support for the plugin from that author.
And this is why bundling plugins with your theme sucks. I wonder when this foul practice is going to be finally disallowed on the marketplace.

This is I believe is the 3rd such post on the forums in the same # of days I have responded to with the same message.

I couldn’t agree more, but yet Envato constantly claim this is ‘clever marketing’ – I don’t understand how this is not clearly seen as false advertising in anybody’s eyes. If I say “includes VC worth $29” then it’s clear false advertising as you don’t get a license which is part of the ‘value for the price of the item’.

I’m sure I will get trolled for stating this yet again however….

Is this really a serious proposition? Who pays for storage, payment processing, marketing, SEO, servers, staff (list goes on) – how would you expect the marketplace to actually exist?

Download the full package, unzip – open documentation and follow what they recommend.

Chances are you are attempting to install the entire package which includes lots of things, not just the theme. Best to download everything, unzip and follow documentation.

Alternatively download the installable WP files only – but I’m pretty sure you’ll want to read the documentation for setup of everything.

Hi Jonathan, My attempts to contact was right after I bought the theme: around 4 weeks ago. I tried it around 4 to 5 times in the 2 weeks after that. No response whatsoever.

Oh I see, then yes this is not good at all. In this instance if you feel that files were missing or the product isn’t as it should be then I recommend opening a ticket with Envato support to explain the situation. They can then take a look at the item and if they find issues as you state they will take effective action I am sure.

Scroll down and click to open a ticket – good luck with everything!

Jonathan

Thanks for the announcement Stephen – Applying for the job(s) :)

I strongly guess Jonathan will mostly become our new reviewer. All the very best buddy :)

^ Jean from Team Designova

Well I appreciate the encouragement :)

Everyone has their strengths and it’s an open position. There’s certainly no shortage of talent in these parts and Envato will pick the right person for the job in the end I am sure. Everyone’s in the game :)

It is weekend so it may be they only offer support mon-fri – obviously it depends how long you have been waiting for a reply however.

Great job – will look at this, already looked at layers but was hesitant with it being a theme framework rather than a plugin.
