Are there affiliate links on the purchase buttons? I didn’t see any ref= params. It would help if someone from outside the marketplaces found your site and became a member here. You should post thus on hacker news and reddit and watch how many referrals you get.
Yeah, I notice the purchase buttons have an affiliate link, cha ching! Noticed it yesterday.
actually that option was added to decrease confusions.
I was thinking the same thing too but you can see how inadvertently this causes confusion and problems of other kinds. Buyers download just the Installable Wordpress file only and then they open up a support ticket because there’s no docs, no demo data, no direction, etc…I’m almost inclined to add links to online docs directly within wp-admin to avoid this. I know some authors already do this.
Just wondering if other authors are experiencing the same issue I’m having. Recently I’ve been having buyers tell me that my themes don’t come with sample data file, docs, etc…I’ve checked and I am indeed including these in the theme package download.
Since this was never an issue before I looked into how they’re downloading the theme and I now notice that in addition to the “All files & documentation” option there is now a new option, “Installable Wordpress file only”.
So, I’m finding that some buyers are using the “Installable Wordpress file only” option instead of “All files & documentation” and this has resulted in an increase in support questions I’m handling because buyers don’t see the docs or demo data they need to get started.
Is this a new and recent update? Maybe it’s old and I’m just noticing it now but I’m more convinced that it’s new because of the same questions coming in at about the same time.
Perhaps it’s just me but when is giving buyers the option to download just the installable theme file which includes no docs, demo data, etc…a good thing?
The design itself is great! Really it is but I do understand what the reviewer means by confusing (although I don’t agree with the rest of his comments).
Add a welcome heading above the home blogroll briefly introducing the theme, what users are in for etc…I didn’t know what I was looking at when I first came to the home page. I thought it was a gallery portfolio theme.
Consider adding page to page transitions. This is a clean design and for me just cutting to the posts was kind of a downer for me. Just “spruce” it up a bit and I am certain this will be approved
I think they have demo sites of their own where they install the themes to test. I know for widgets testing they use the Monster plugin. Not sure if the actual site content comes from a plugin as well or if it’s set up on their end manually.
Thanks! I’ve started using this as of this last theme I’m submitting and it’s a big help
Yes, I used the Theme Unit Test plugin but I just saw that it also comes with demo data https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/demo/theme-unit-test-data.xml is that what they’re using? Will give it a shot thanks
Regarding Wordpress theme submissions, is there a plugin that reviewers use to generate, markup and html tags and formatting?
The reason I ask is that I’ve recently submitted a theme that’s been soft rejected and the reviewer points out some single post layout issues http://envato.d.pr/jECU/5g7XSXbB
Looks like something auto-generated for testing and development purposes. Any other others or reviewers out there that can help a little light on this so I can see how they get this formatting issue which I can’t replicate because it works fine on my side.
