I’ve been basically using the honor system but I may be looking into a way to better protect the files.

I also have a custom 404 error page on my server that will automatically shoot me an email when people are looking for something that isn’t there on my server. Twice I have gotten several 404 errors from person (not a search engine) that was trying to access quite a few of the images on a theme but spelled a few wrong. It was enough attempts that I blocked their IP address for 48 hours from my server just to be safe.

The 5% that don’t have JS either available to them or turned on are not the crowd I want to market to. Plus, they do have JS available to them. They can go upgrade their browser or system like the rest of the world.

What this comes down to is opinion. An author has a choice not to support IE 6 or other browsers if they choose and yet they are still given the opportunity to make money for their work. JS is the same. If they choose not to support degrading JS, that is their choice and they should still have the opportunity to make money for their work.

In my opinion degrading JavaScript is an added feature. I compare it to the idea of PHP . If your template requires PHP to function properly then the buyer needs to be aware of that. If your template requires JavaScript to function properly (because it doesn’t include degrading JavaScript) then it’s the buyers responsibility to be aware of that.

These days, everyone has JS so it’s not that big of a deal in my opinion. The internet is a capitalist market. If there are people selling more templates than you and saving extra time by not including degrading JavaScript and buyers aren’t asking for it, don’t attack those authors.

You have to keep in mind too that a lot of the authors here are new to building web templates and are learning as they go. That doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be allowed to make a profit off a functional template just because their JS doesn’t degrade.

Just my 2 cents.

Hey Jeffrey,

I’m with parker on this as well. I emailed you but received no reply. I’m guessing you’ve either been too busy or we were cast aside for someone else, lol. :-)

@zachlebar – I’m not in need of it being done, I was just curious if I built it if anyone would buy it. I have already built an HTML theme with twitter built into it and personally really like it but I’m not sure how popular the idea is with others.

I’m curious as to what most visitors are looking for in HTML Templates. What if there was a poll on the front page of ThemeForest with some options and maybe a “Other” section so that visitors can specify what they are looking for. Then authors can build templates to fill those needs.

Think it’s a good idea? or am I just crazy?

A lot of people use Twitter ( twitter.com ) and some people like to include their twitter posts on their website, blog, etc. Some people even like to use a dedicated page for their twitter posts, etc. so that they can really customize the look of it.

Just curious as to how many people around here use Twitter and if a custom Twitter template would be something anyone would be interested in?
