I dont want to hijack this thread, but here is suggestion for developers ( not designers ) who are thinking about buying mac. Install UBUNTU, which is now almost same as OSX, but you can run it on any hardware. So the costs are same as win PC, but you gain advantages of OSX. As a former mac user i can highly recommend this

While i 100% agree with Linux being awesome, i’d recommend everybody who’s about to make the switch, and especially if you come from OSX, to check out elementary OS. It’s basically an Ubuntu derivate with a more OSX’ish look and feel and it’s lightning fast on top of that.

Sorry for derailing the thread.

That’s like every second theme from about a year ago. Searching for “masonry” should give you a lot of results.

I wouldn’t see a particular reason for it. The iPhone 6 plus display is good, but nothing special. There are displays out there with better resolution / ppi and if you didn’t use 300% so far i don’t see how the iPhone 6 plus could change that.

Yes, the announcement was like two weeks ago. They changed the 2$ surcharge to 1$ and keep 100% of that, so you will never again get additional money from direct buy. You can read the announcement on the blog.

Some people probably did, but envato changed their fee structure last month.

Before the fee for direct purchase was 2$ from which you got 50%-70%, now it’s only 1$ of which envato keeps 100%.

Edit: Here is the announcement: http://marketblog.envato.com/news/balanced-envato-market/

It is actually not that hard.

A lot of themes come with a demo content file included. All you have to do is import that demo content file and voila, your website will look exactly as the demos, now its just a matter of editing the demo content to include your texts, images and so on and to delete the stuff you do not need.

Also most themes have great documentation to help you out.

And then there are always places like http://studio.envato.com/ where you can hire somebody for very reasonable prices to do the work for you.

So can someone clarify for me?

Wordpress releases constant updates that affect security, stability, etc. A theme needs to stay current with those updates to fully function.

So are you saying that WordPress is so horrible, that no version of it is ever fully secure or stable? As I stated above … I have a hand coded static website that has chugged along just fine for over 7 years now. There have been zero stability enhancements, zero security changes, and zero changes to the code, whatsoever. And yet I’ve conducted business with it just fine, with hundreds of thousands of monthly users.

So ill ask again. Why can’t you install wordpress, import a theme, and leave it running indefinitely without any problems? I dont get why you’re “losing money” from clients. But that’s a different topic. What is it about WordPress that dictates you can’t download it, install it, and simply leave it running?

Why is my site doing just fine?

I think it depends a lot on the kind of page you have.

Obviously in a perfect world always running the newest version is the best. That being said, there is a huge difference between for example an ecommerce page and a personal portfolio page.

I’d have no problem whatsoever running my personal portfolio on WordPress 3.8 for the next 2 years, with a store however, where for example payments are involved it is highly recommended to stay up to date

So, does this mean authors are now effectively 20% slower on reaching the next author fee status?
