Every word is true. But “scripts which relies on url parameters are exploitable by nature” != exiting security issues.
It depends on your concept of security. The latest exploit allowed arbitrary code execution but, even if that was patched, due the nature of the script, i could still be able to bring your server on knees by requesting all possible combinations of width/height for one or multiple images. This still qualifies as security issue for me.

The problem is not really timthumb using custom code to generate the image but the script doing it when image itself is requested instead of at page rendering time (like aqua resizer does for instance).

This may be sound optimal at a first glance (to only generate a thumbnail when it’s requested) but you lose control on the parameters which is far worst than creating more thumbnails than you need at a given time.

To serve static images using php is just a massive waste of resources. Additionally, scripts which relies on url parameters are exploitable by nature: what if somebody just manually rewrites them by using random values for width and height ? a new image will be created each time, eating cpu cycles and storage.

According to our bundle earnings calculator, which was updating each 60 secs, the final number of sales was 5928. You can use the following link to check what your final earnings were (replace the “20” at the end of the url with the price of your included item and refresh to see your earnings)

Yes. Basically this comes to the point where 100% GPL isn’t an easy choice for an author even if there are home rules (for upload) added by marketplace. Those rules will work like usage upload guidelines, nothing more than that – it would be impossible to monitor in the long run.
We wouldn’t for sure.

100% GPL themes would have 0 protection here. Even with split license, envato doesn’t enforce any “my house my rules” policy against copycats.

We, as many, also include custom made jquery plugin that are sold as separate commercial items and a 100% GPL theme would extend the license to the bundled plugin code.

I’m not sure the plugin can work. it maybe good to import some basic data like post,menu, categories,page and it can’t import custom data base on site features. I use wordpress import to import sample data xml from wordpress site and a large bugs happens
I also hate xml file also. I strongly recommend use php file to install data. for example use php array. Easy to use and update later also!
Just take a look at wordpress importer plugin code because, If you choose to do the same thing by yourself, there are high chances you’ll end rewriting most of that stuff. You can’t just add post, there are a lot of other things you need to take into account (like url rewriting in content, for instance). It’s far easier to just use/extend what’s already done and works quite well than reinventing the wheel.

Almost all authors offering “one click demo install” feature (including us) use the wordpress importer plugin. You cannot do this by sql, it would be too low level to be reliable.

Basically you include the export.xml file from your preview in the theme, then use the importer plugin to load the data. However, some stuff will not be imported (for instance widgets configuration) and requires custom code is if you want the buyer to get an exact copy of the preview site.

1. Go through your entire portfolio’s scripts and delete every occurrence of $.browser, otherwise you’ll have broken themes..
just took a look at current alpha of 3.6 and jquery-migrate is included by default. This means $.browser would fire a warning in console:

JQMIGRATE: jQuery.browser is deprecated

but code won’t break.

Nice page :) Totall bundle price look like 537$ If Photodune photos large size :) May be you change formula .

Yeah, as you realised, we are working from a total value of $537, also assuming the $5 resolution for Photodune images. So yep the math is solid.

DOK

Oh and you should change the title to “Mobile Bundle” :) And if i may ask can you include the number of sales just below the earnings? :)
done
