One problem I have found, for WordPress > Software Version , 4.1 should be the first one, then 4.0 and so on, but now 4.0 is the first and 4.1 is 3 options lower.

I would say you should stay clear as much as you can from the versions of PHP that are not supported by WordPress. You should try and make it work with the official PHP version that WordPress supports (that is 5.2.4 right now). It will save you a great deal of headaches as there are quite a few hosting services out there that go for the minimum requirements (maybe thinking about stability, etc). It sucks but this is the way things are.

I would go with Linode for the business part (more expensive but more reliable) and with DO for the experiments or not so mission critical stuff.

Hey jmbrox,

You can easily upload multiple images in a Gallery or a Project and you can find more about it here http://bit.ly/1xO3mdR

Anyway – as @codeex mentioned – this is a general forum and you may better reach us through the comments section or directly through our HelpDesk.

Cheers, – George

Looking at those numbers I can’t help but wonder what are you doing with 1000 for hosting? Maybe if that is for a whole year or maybe more. Also CDN for 500? You get 1 TB of cdn traffic for $70 at maxcdn.

Anyway what others here are trying to say with those smilies is that themes here are dirt cheap and it is weird you should mention the cost of the theme.

On second thought, you should check our portfolio :) Shameless advertising :)

Hey guys and sorry for not taking an answer to this topic – as we were not noticed about its existence,

ROSA was down due to an internal script that we used in the past which replaces the license of a free-to-use PHP function. Unfortunately, in no time, the author of the function didn’t hesitate to reach Envato with a DMCA and most of our themes were disabled in a matter of hours.

Happily – the author understood the situation and admitted he should notice us first. He reached Envato and after a couple of days the themes were back. More details here.

However – currently we do not have any plans to move the themes to another marketplace. Though we’re having other items available in other places, due to the exclusivity status from here.

Cheers and sorry for this thing happen,
George

from http://www.digitalgoodsstore.com/blog/how-digital-goods-store-is-going-to-combat-vatmoss#update

this seems interesting, and directly related to how envato marketplace works: (it should answer the question “who is the seller”, and the answer should be “envato”)

quote:

Dear Stephen

Thank you for your e-mail to the VAT 2015 mailbox regarding the impact on Digital Goods Store Ltd.

Internet portals, gateways and marketplaces are presumed to be making the supply to the consumer unless the supplier is explicitly indicated as such in both the contractual arrangements and in any documentation issued to the customer.

However the portal cannot explicitly indicate the supplier as such if:
1. It authorises the charge to the customer – this includes the portal deciding that the customer’s account, credit or debit card or other means of payment can be charged as payment for the service OR 2. It authorises the delivery of the service – this includes sending approval to the supplier to commence delivery, delivering the product itself or instructing a third party to deliver OR 3. It sets the general terms and conditions of the sale with which the customer has to agree before the sale can take place, which includes the terms and conditions set by the portal for use of its site by the customer. If any one of these conditions apply you are treated as making the supply to the customer. Therefore, from the description you have provided, it sounds as if these provisions apply as you initiate the payment flow and the delivery to the customer. Yours sincerely Desmond Farndell CTA Senior Policy Adviser VAT Supply Team/ Indirect Tax Directorate/HMRC/100 Parliament St/London/SW1A 2BQ

This is one very sane response and Envato should take note that sane answers can be formulated and issued into the wild. Nothing apocalyptic will happen.

You just don’t do this sort of flip testing for this sort of stuff. This is not design A/B testing. It seems to me Envato has been playing poker latelly. Many bluff moves like support, VAT, direct sellers, now cart. You are making us nervous as you are incresingly less predictable, if not down right unpredictable.
