We’d like to jump in
You can check out our Elvyre Wordpress theme. It’s clean, simple and has our own page builder.
You should contact the author and inorm him about it, so he can fix it.
Nice, think we will be seeing this a lot in new themes. Thank you for sharing
It’s not broken it’s by design. The whole site, regardless of entry point, is geared towards top sellers and best-selling items. That’s the sales funnel for the marketplace. Having bulk sales count as individual sales distorts these figures and opens up the opportunity for gaming the system quite easily and with the assistance of Envato to boot. I have zero issues with bulk sales, that’s just awesome for the author, I have a problem with artificially inflating sales figures which are based on individual sales.
Totally agree with this, but in my opinion the problem is much deeper. In the popular themes section (wordpress) there are always the same files. Some of them are already 3 years old. How can a new theme compete with that? The solution should be to post most popular themes that were max 1 month old and then below there can be all time popular items. That would give some chance to new, great themes and a bulk purchase of that one theme wouldn’t have that many effect..
@ChapterThemes niche themes are not doing so well, because of the bloated themes. So raising their price would have no effect. Why would someone buy a high price niche theme when they can have bloated one with 100 layouts for smaller price?
You can’t . You can make a profile and add your information and what services you would like to provide. After that if Envato contacts you, you can start working..
@Anps sure, but we can only hope that clients will eventually see things differently..
It’s the same old story and yes this will ruin the marketplace. Trend of multi bloated themes will continue to rise. After some time it will become a standard, it’s actually happening already. After some time there will be no difference between a normal theme and bloated because they all will be bloated, and then you’ll figure out, wait I have to spend 6+ months of development to make a bloated theme and then I have the sales which I had before with a simple but unique normal theme. This is already happening and many authors are already going for alternatives…
it’s been discussed for long time now and nothing is going to change about it. The only question is who will be still here when the boat starts to sink.
