Authors are loosing home exposure because of this, some words from staff would be appropriate.

I don’t know if you noticed but on Creattica when you submit a WordPress theme it automatically gets categorized under “Freebies”. The last few themes we have submitted have consequently received negative comments (facebook) from users who expected the theme to be free only to find out its costs $45 or so. This is a big taboo for a legitimate company these days. So my questions are WP themes only accessible under the “freebies” menu? and why don’t Creattica change this?

It has been requested many times in the past. I hope Envato could give someday a solution for this, as this is a very common practise lately, mostly on TF. But don’t think is something with priority on his schedule. Not sure.
yeah, we’re not holding breath.

right now the most viable solution to split earnings is to use payoneer card-to-card transfer: immediate and free (5k per month limit).

However, one author still get all the money first and then manually transfers partner share so team mates really need to trust each other before anything else.

those assets are stored to amazon s3 cdn, meanings each user is loading them from different servers according to geo location.

most likely it’s a temporary routing issue between user isp and a particular server.

Yep closing PHP tag is generally not used, especially on class files.
that’s not the only case, it could also happen with BOM headers: some editors just hide them so one won’t notice until buyers start chasing you armed with forks.

We just had a very nasty issue in a recent theme: some buyers complained about “Headers already sent” warning upon theme activation which caused massive boos like getting blank pages, being unable to login or create new pages and so on.

The issue was caused by a single extra (damn) newline char placed after a closing ”?>” in one of the theme classes file but the real question for us was “how the f**k this didn’t happen with any of the multiple wp installations running on different servers/platforms where we had tested theme ?”

So today, after a bit of research, we figure out that when php outbut_buffering option is enabled, you most likely never get a “Headers already sent” warning. We had it enabled in all our php installations like any other buyer not experiencing the issue.

Our friendly advice would be to turn that option off for your testing machine, i don’t know if theme/plugin installation is part of the review process but if it’s the case, reviewers should also disable output buffering.

Elite money is not free money. It requires 24/7 work
it looks like somebody missed last “Elites” magazine “Grow your own money tree” article ….

Wow, does this really resolve all cases? That’d be cool :)
    add_filter('the_content', 'shortcode_empty_paragraph_fix');
    function shortcode_empty_paragraph_fix($content)
    {   
        $array = array (
            '<p>[' => '[', 
            ']</p>' => ']', 
            ']<br />' => ']'
        );

        $content = strtr($content, $array);

        return $content;
    }

yes but still there’s a major issue: it gets applied to all shortcodes, including those defined in 3rd party plugins (which is bad).

just spent some time on this, and replaced the above with some regexps:

It basically works the same way but only on your blocklevel shortcodes defined in the array (“col” in the example)
