Why not using Super/Total cache instead ? with page cache enabled and mod_rewrite, there won’t be any php/mysql involved at all since it would be exactly like serving a static html page.

I would suggest deleting the previous zips first, then update the new ones after having added a version prefix to the filename (like theme.v3.4.zip).

It happened to us in the past that uploading a new zip with the same name of the one still existing on envato server didn’t overwrite the old version.

if “how to not ask for support” was in the dictionary, that post would be included as example.

ps. the ip address is still in the image, you may want to remove it.

Just out of interest, the graph above, is that the amount of activity on your forums by month, or amount of new posts by month? :)
yep, new posts.

without dedicated staff we won’t have time to do anything else but support whole day and, even with 4 people working on it, our queue sometimes gets above 100 which is insane.

My suggestion would be to start looking for somebody as soon as possible because it takes time to find the right person and supports request can double or triple in just a couple of months.

To find good support staff isn’t easy at all, that’s something we’re struggling with on a regular basis because the amount of support posts in our forum keep increasing:

We tried posting here in forum, in free wp related job boards and lately we even bought paid job ads on stackoverflow and authenticjobs. We were lucky the first time (when posting here) and got a very talented young dev which is now part of of our team but, besides that, we tried a lot of people without success.

Currently we have 1 fulltime, 1 parttime and testing other 2 for parttime position but still searching for new candidates.

When we have a position open, we include in the submission form a mandatory WordPress test which needs to be completed to consider the candidate, after that we pick one or two of the most promising submissions and offer them a paid 2 weeks trial.

After the trial is over, we decide what to do.

Just found out that item totals/sales shown in

http://themeforest.net/user/[username]/active_items

ignore sale reversals. Most authors don’t need those values but since we use them to easily compute partner payments, thought to share in case others are doing the same thing.

Just found this thread. Very nice! Thank pixelentity a lot! Just 1 small question, do you update from Envato Updater Class regularly? I see the repo on Github is 1 year old, while Envato’s is 9 months old.
there was only a single change to the api class and it was 10 months ago: https://github.com/envato/envato-wordpress-toolkit-library/commit/2f2f74087c96bf6d5a7ef8d9a6de3cde3b668693

I’ve always wondered about a way around network installs and theme updates. Do you think a similar method will work for updating CodeCanyon plugins on a network install as well? Does this work on network and single install? So many questions! I’ll try to dig through the code tomorrow.
The plugin works on both single and networked installs, we use “pre_set_site_transient_update_themes” hook, i didn’t check but i suppose wp updates plugins in the same way so it should be possible to do adapt the code with minimal changes.

Hey,

i just read your post, no problems with the fork, we released that code for every author to use it ;)

However, the problem with theme bundled class approach is that it won’t work with a network install, to solve the above we created a plugin instead:

https://github.com/bitfade/themeforest-themes-update

Once installed, it will update any TF theme via Envato API.
