That’s a good solution and we’ll defo give it a try. Only thing i’m concerned about is when you have a lot of (new) images in a single page: having to resize them all at once could hit memory limit with some hosting providers.

If that happens, you could be left with broken (resized) images which won’t be generated again due to caching.

Altough the above is a minor issue may i suggest a little change ? use image_resize with a temp filename and then rename it on the next line. This way, if image_resize crashes (memory limit), the image will be created again on next page reload.

So a CJ points out, this just results in Authors opting out, Envato losing money, no marketplace cross-polination. Boo

The best solution would be to allow authors to choose their own extended license prices on a file by file basis (with a minimum). This way if an author wants to allow 5x price they can do so. But if a CC author with a top selling component thinks an extended license for their item is worth 100x the price, let them make that decision.

This essentially does three things:

- CC author gets compensated to what they see fit
- CC author can set the price high enough to prevent over-saturation of their product on other marketplaces
- CC component now has an extended license option as opposed to nothing at all

Then don’t allow same-marketplace reselling and now the program works for everyone :)

On a side note, I’m pretty sure at one point in the past CC evaluated extented license sales, realized that sales were low and decided to lower the prices. But times have changed and demand for non-Flash components has now skyrocketed.

Yep CJ, nice suggestion, that would defo be a nice, all inclusive and flexible solution! Bring it on.

This is what I’d like to see, it would make much more sense. For my item, I’d like to include a theme, but the cost of an extended license just makes it not worthwhile.

However, if a theme author wanted to use, for example, my WordPress plugin, they pay $90 and I then get $45 however many of them they sell, they sell 3000 WordPress themes at an average of £35 making them $52,500 – I still only get $45.

This is why I don’t have the extended license available.

We agree with this, and is also the reason why we do not offer the extended license option on our CC items, despite getting regular inquiries from buyers interested in extended licenses.

5x for a CC item which can be inserted into another item in the marketplaces is madness. Authors wishing to go this route (use a CC item in their TF themes) should be paying a premium for this convenience, but instead they are getting it so cheap its illogical for the CC author to opt-in and allow the marketplaces to become saturated with his/her item via other author’s themes, while at the same time not get any premium payoff for his troubles.

So a CJ points out, this just results in Authors opting out, Envato losing money, no marketplace cross-polination. Boo

Fix it…it only makes sense to do so. In fact the extra income Envato would get from this would pay for their lawyer’s fees many times over.

We had a customer yesterday asking a few questions about our latest file to find out if it was the right on for him. Almost all of his requested features were not part of the file and we clearly told him so. Later we even talked about customising the theme for him but in the end we didn’t agree on price and he decided to leave it.

Today we get an email saying that he went ahead and bought the theme and likes it but rated it 4 stars because of those missing features!

For me this makes no sense. If a file is bug free, works like it says in the description and has great support, then why a 4 star rating only? Especially when the lack of desired features was known about before they decided to purchase?? Flawed reasoning IMO

If it makes a significant improvement, you should submit this as a patch to WP core.

as i said, there are reason for that – for example, the php file checks

if ( $current_blog->archived == '1' || $current_blog->spam == '1' || $current_blog->deleted == '1' ) {
        status_header( 404 );
        die( '404 — File not found.' );
}

the above wouldn’t be possible without using ms-files.php. However, such feature is not needed when the network is only used for theme preview, hence the quick hack.
