I wrote a tutorial series on how to do it (paid members only, sorry): http://pippinsplugins.com/series/user-submitted-image-galleries/

You can see the public gallery system created through my tutorial series here: http://cgcookie.com/blender/gallery/ (some modifications of course).

That only works for Theme Forest themes, not Code Canyon plugins.

Having an option to notify all buyers will never happen as it makes it far to easy to spam buyers with unsolicited emails.
I disagree. As a buyer I want to be notified of updates. Why not have a checkbox on the authors update page that says “notify buyers of this CRITICAL update” or something like that….

Yes I would as well but Envato will not implement it because there are far too many sellers that would abuse the feature and use it to send out advertisements of their other plugins to buyers.

Also, it worth to mention that this issue is more like a WordPress issue rather than a plugin issue. We did assume that WP won’t let request through by visitors without permission to open the plugin page. If WP would check the permissions properly, it could never happen. And you have to understand that there is a lot of automatic subroutines in a framework which aren’t documented, so we never get a chance to know about this can cause problems.

That’s not true. WordPress does perform security checks on plugin pages, but only if you have registered those pages using the WordPress API (add_submenu_page() in this case).

If your code that processes add/edit/delete requests in your plugin are outside of your function that renders the admin page, you must perform your own security checks.

As your plugin is extremely popular, you should also absolutely have an auto update notification integrated. These are not difficult to build and there are quite a few resources (I wrote one of them) that show you how to do it.

That’s great!

I am also getting taken to the item page, however. Tested with two different items.

That’s not possible, except with some advanced rewrites.

Instead of chatting about how hey started it all, this is already well known by now. Keeping it running and keeping the people who have made themeforest (among others) happy is more important i think.

I’d say what Collis talked about is actually very, very unknown to the vast majority of people. Pretty sure the fact that Envato essentially started in a men’s bathroom is not widely known.

I was at Pressnomics and saw the presentation live. Truly inspiring. I also got the opportunity to sit down and talk to Collis personally for a while.

Networking with members of the Envato community, and the WordPress community, as he did at Pressnomics, is extremely valuable to Envato and all of its marketplace members.

I spent a while personally talking with Collis about how to improve the marketplaces for authors, so saying that he wasn’t working to improve the sites simply isn’t true at all.

Collis told me personally that one of his goals with going to Pressnomics was to directly interact with prominent members of the marketplace and WordPress community and to get their feedback on how to improve the ecosystem in the Envato marketplaces.

I have noting but respect for the dude.

Hey infuse01,

So you can’t currently log in to any of the marketplaces using chrome?

Mark :)

I can’t login with Chrome at all on one of my computers. The other works fine. I’ve cleared all caches and cookies.
