Hi – all WordPress WooCommerce themes support product variations as it is a standard feature – any will work.

Been using it since the start and love it.
Hey Jonathan, great to hear! What do you like most about it?

Free. Simple interface. Extendable. Does exactly what I need in a light and fast package :)

You also have to take in to effect that there could be a whole bunch of people viewing a live demo causing the response time to be lower on the server. We get a lot of traffic on ThemeForest live demos of products and it can slow down things considerably. I personally aim for 90/100 in google when I test before selling without any modifications or minifying anything.

Final Destiny is also correct in saying that there are easy ways of speeding up your site using a few plugins freely available.

Organic is also correct in it depends how things are coded – more features shouldn’t mean slower performance, but generally I also see this with many themes available.

Good news is that as a buyer you have lots of options :)

unzip first, open folder, find documentation then upload what they mention. Basically you are trying to upload the entire download you got from ThemeForest by the sounds of it, this includes many things, not just the theme.

No I fully understand what you are asking, I am stating that forcing people to use a system is not good practice for anyone. My emails sell just fine without a proprietary editing system.

I don’t want to state the obvious here, but I don’t think it matters how refined these ‘rules and regulations’ of support may turn out to be, you are still dependent on the buyer actually reading and understanding and keeping inline with them. Generally that’s just not going to happen unfortunately.

You could buy one and have a look!

Thanks for your answer!

I just bought one, but the Builder was online. The help file inside the item I bought, gave me a link from a website and in order to have access in that Builder, I had to put my Envato username and the license key from the item.

All Theme Builders are like that? I mean online with license keys or there are some local Builders too?

this is exactly why they are not a good idea I think- lock in to a system that is required. This should be stated to anyone buying something that depends on something else. It’s going to prove yet another issue I think for Envato in time, what if that service is discontinued, they go bust, give up supporting etc. then people will not be happy. Also what if the API for envato changes (as it does) breaking verification, the buyer buys one, tried to use, can’t use until they fix.

Stick to standards and support the major large companies like Campaign Monitor and Mail Chimp IDE’s and tags etc- and also regular html editing. After all changing text, links and replacing images is not a hard thing to do – the most basic knowledge of HTML is only required.

You can’t dismiss Alexa rankings (as imperfect as they are) even Collis has used them to show the popularity of Envato himself in a round-up of Australian start-ups just earlier this year:

http://inside.envato.com/australian-start-ups/

Also in their press release for Microlancer:

http://press.envato.com/73718-envato-rebrands-microlancer-removing-beta-to-launch-envato-studio

also:

http://press.envato.com/85615-envato-pays-200-million-to-its-community

Seems they were at least happy to shout out about their rankings a short period of time ago. Infact this is an entire press release from August this year solely about their Alexa rating:

http://press.envato.com/83002-australian-website-themeforest-breaks-into-world-s-top-100

So, if there is a drop then I do believe it’s worth discussion.
