Because every site I’ve ever created for a client they ALWAYS come back and say they want to roll their sleeves up and change the position of everything, colors and need a layout builder. Oh no wait, yup never had that in 15 yrs they prefer no options they just want to copy/paste from word or leave the site exactly how I created it which was to say perfectly constructed for their requirements which was the whole reason they hired me to make their website in the first place
Love it, love everything about it!
Could not agree more Tom,
The tone of this post really does portray non ‘mega’ authors as amateur hacks trying to make a quick buck.
It’s really disappointing to see Envato promoting this kind of opinion.
Thanks so much to Kraft for the invite!
Really excited to be part of the Dribbble community
We had a similar situation recently where Envato refused to remove a 1-star review a customer left after we declined to give them free customisation.
Envato’s current stance is too rigid and uncompromising and has unfortunately left us feeling unsupported as authors. They even responded by saying ‘If we remove it, the customer will just add it back again’ .. how this is an appropriate response boggles the mind!
Here’s an idea – each extra ‘theme’ that people would like to include as part of their bundle adds $1 extra to the price tag. That way themes which have 66 extra demos would cost 66 extra dollars. This would help to regulate the situation and present the customer with a standardised way of differentiating the value in different products.
Dear Eric, There are many site templates out there on themeforest those are still in SITE TEMPLATE category rather being in | ThemeForest > CMS Themes > Miscellaneous | as you suggested in your last message. I think you should take immediate action to move out all of these from SITE TEMPLATE category the one ENVATO actually finalized. Here i am listing some website those have Theme/Page Builder but still are in SITE TEMPLATE category:
All these items your have mentioned fall into the HTML page builder category, not the Custom CMS category as their sole purpose is to produce HTML documents – not manage content via a database as a CMS does.
That font looks a little crusty – try Roboto Slab for a smoother slab alternative.
Ditch the scroll hijacking – that always creates an unpleasant user experience.
Calm down on the animations – just use animation as a light touch to emphasise certain elements.
That orange is a little full on – I’d suggest checking out some more neutral colour schemes. dribbble is a good place for inspiration
Thanks for the clarification Eric – looks like we can continue business as usual
Hey everyone, no cause for alarm. We’re reviewing this issue within the team and will keep you posted with more clarification shortly. Thanks for your patience
Any update on this? There’s been no word for almost 2 weeks, we’re wondering what to do about our next template release.
