What is really needed now, and what is a realistic request/expectation at this point, is that the other categories get the same treatment as the WP category. Admin templates and site templates are suffering from the same ancient pricing points as the WP category was. There has been no bump in these categories for a loooong time but standards have gone up incredibly.

I would suggest that site templates range in price from $18-$25, while admin templates range from $25-$35. Given the work with goes into these items, this is pretty reasonable.

I honestly see all of these themes the same in past few weeks. Not a lot of WOW factor coming out lately – Responsive themes are great, but not much other than the typical 960 grid look – predictable menu in the header – jquery slider of some sort – then your typical 3 call out boxes-or four underneath – then some more typical stuff – then the same looking footer that everyone has…..where are theatre themes? Irish pub themes, racing themes, Nightclub themes – are these too hard to design? As a designer I listen to the buyers. And again I don’t see a problem with the increase… I’m just more picky now….and as a designer – I’m not feeling a lot of the product coming out – Just my feelings.

They are not hard to design. The only reason you don’t see these kind of themes is because you wont get 3000 sales with those themes. Just because your clients want such themes doesn’t mean there is a big market for them here. Even if many clients did want such themes, they wouldn’t want them to look alike. These kind of custom themes are not big sellers, so the investment of an author’s time is not going to pay off, its as simple as that.

Additionally , the higher the bar goes regarding features and difficulty of approval, then the more time needs to be invested by the author, and hence the less willing they are to take a risk on a custom design/themed item. Also as long as generic themes are getting 100+ sales / week, which they have been doing for a long time now, the new stuff will stay generic, this is a simple obvious fact.

Hi dudes,

That’s our responsive lightbox item, and like the rest of our stuff on CC, it will never be available with an extended licence while those ridiculous prices (5x) for extended licences remain on CC. That is a no brainer, even if the terms of the extended licences have recently changed.

We’re using payoneer card-to-card transfer service to split our envato income, which worked great (so far) and it’s absolutely free.

However, today we’re getting the following error:

This payment cannot be processed because it exceeds the monthly limit for card to card transfers. The monthly limit is $5000.00.

Point is, this is the first transfer of the month (1k) for us so there’s must be something wrong. Anybody else experiencing this issue ?

Well.. how is this working? How can he use the old licence if the script is not available in that format? I mean.. the old licence was the one that existed in the past. Now the file exists under another licence. How can someone target a file licence that is not existent anymore?
Regular license for envato buyers would still apply if item gets deleted or uploaded somewhere else with different terms.

2 – This should be handled independently by plugins. I believe trust WP made similar decision about this.
wp stores thumbs info into attachment metadata: when the attachment is deleted, related thumbs get cleared too. Anyway, the above requires messing with the db which is overkill in this case.

A good compromise, imho, would be to create a dedicated subfolder into wp upload dir (to avoid permission issues), this way one could delete all generated thumbs and developers may even provide a dedicated option for that in the theme admin page.

For additional safety, you may want to consider comparing original attachment/cached thumb mtimes and regenerate when original image is newer.

I think WP also trusted that user servers can handle more than a handful of GD resizing as even them did not apply this check as far as I know.
yeah, they do not. But we found ourselves in cases where buyer had such “unfriendly” hosting setup that he couldn’t even upload image bigger than a certain size without hitting the memory limit (= broken thumb).

Thanks for the update, we’re going to use your script for sure in our next theme and provide more feedback.
