To echo custom rules inside a style block of header is not a bad practice and also has absolutely zero impact on performances/load times while to write an external css file with custom values requires an additional server request which is far more costly in terms of resources.

I also was wondering what’s with the 35$ price tags on some new themes? Couple of them are surely worth more – and with “new” pricing policy I thought that 30$-35$ price is for simple themes like vcard etc. not for e.g magazine themes.

- $25-30 – Mobile or simple, single page themes
- $35-40 – Standard themes
- $45-50 – Themes with advanced functionality
- $55-60 – Themes incorporating eCommerce or compatibility with BuddyPress

- $45-50 – Themes with advanced functionality

Really? as i can see, some themes from the top authors is just quite simple, and still priced at $45 or $50. so what is the point ? Unique design, standard esthetics , elite author’s theme , or what???

Just my opinion, and some authors too (i think so)

Yep, I see it happening a lot, small themes with relatively basic features being priced much higher then the above breakdown would suggest, just because the author is well known. They anticipate high sales, and so price things higher to cash in on that. This is not necessarily a bad thing for other authors, in fact it’s a bad thing for the popular author because it can lead to buyers avoiding the file. Anyway, this kind of pricing phenomenon has always existed, so is not a new thing since the price increases.

I would like to reiterate that we absolutely and genuinely care about the experience you all have with the Marketplaces – we too want them to be the best they can be and we’re working to deliver that – it’s in our best interests as well!
Jordan, pretty much all authors are just “mad” about the current rating system and you’ve been told that for years. It makes no difference for Envato because, as somebody else already pointed out, if a buyer skip a theme rated 3-4, he’ll probably buy another one rated 5. But it’s a huge problem for each individual author.

The worst thing that can happen after working months on an item is not getting poor sales, it’s getting a one star rating early which will destroy item reputation and most likely kills its sales. Do you know what it means to hold your breath until you reach 3 ratings and you can finally your new item stars ? We do and i can assure it’s not nice. Even after that, until you get a decent amount of ratings, you’re still each buyer b..ch to avoid the damn 1 star rating but, now matter how much you work your a.s for free, it can still happen.

We asked and asked and asked again to change this madness but in vain. We keep being told Envato listen to us, if that’s true then do something about it because nice words and generic promises have no effect on (most) of us anymore.

Should be tested to see what wp_upload_dir() exactly returns on a sub blog.
it returns sub blog correct values (blogs.dir), that i can assure.

Yes, is what I do in my function I guess… because when you get the image url in a sub blog, the url returned is passed through rewrite rules, so it needs to be modified to point to the real sub blog uploads folder on server, otherwise scripts like timthumb fail.
I was suggesting to use something like
$ud = wp_upload_dir();
$file = str_replace($ud["baseurl"],$ud["basedir"],$url);
didn’t test at all but wp_upload_dir() would always provide right values whether multisite is enabled or not.

not sure if i got the problem but wouldn’t be simpler to just strip upload url from image and prepend upload dir to obtain file path ?
