Just a heads up here since no one posted for some time. Here is what our soft rejection contained:

wp_footer needs to be immediately before the end of the body tag. http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_footer

All your styles and scripts must be enqueued in functions.php during the wp_enqueue_script action. http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_enqueue_script

Enqueue the main stylesheet (style.css) during the wp_enqueue_script action:

/**
 * Enqueue main stylesheet.
 */
function mytheme_style() {
  wp_enqueue_style( 'mytheme-style', get_bloginfo( 'stylesheet_url' ), array(), '20130312' );
}
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'mytheme_style' );

Cheers to everyone and good luck wp-theming!

I might not get it. How about themes that use Revolution Slider ? They all contain a zip file with this plugin so the buyer can install it and get the functionality from the demo, isn’t it ?(without the need to separately purchase the plugin) Is this against the rules even if the author bought the slider with extended license and got written permission from the plugin author that is ok to do this ?

That is perfectly okay because it is default rule in ThemeForest, Extended License + Author Permission.

The issue on this thread is different, the Premium GPL Plugins are from outside Envato Marketplace (from two different companies) and there are no written permission from plugins authors. You can read the detail here, http://coenjacobs.me/en/dont-buy-bundled-premium-plugins/

Oh I see. Thanks alot for clarification :)

I have issues with the way this was handled. These two themes were both themes which I had purchased because of their style and functionality. They were at one point approved by themeforest and then removed without any notification to the developer nor the MANY people who had purchased the theme with the intent of receiving ongoing updates through the Themeforest network as is a feature customers expect when buying a theme. This is extremely poor business practice on behalf of Themeforest. If you don’t like a theme after you have approved it, other steps should be made to ensure that those customers who spent money to purchase a theme are protected.

First, notification, is an absolute MUST.

Second, a change in policy should affect future themes and older themes should be grandfathered into a policy.

It is bad business practice to do this to both your customers and developers.

I’m no longer impressed with the concept I had once thought so highly of from Themeforest.

Apologies for any inconvenience. We can’t continue to sell a theme with an issue like this, so we remove it temporarily while contacting the author to fix the issue, and then once fixed the theme will be available for sale again.

Assuming the theme author fixes the issue, you’ll continue to get the updates etc. that you were hoping for.

That’s why we wait until the final version is released before implementing any new feature.

I also received a similar email today. Piracy will never go away, even if you throw thousand of bucks to the so called companies that are sending these emails.

Since it’s already past Thursday in Australia, where are the price changes ? Where’s notes announcement ? Another postpone I guess ?
Nope, no delay! Vahid said in his post – that he would have an update from the team on our status with the changes. We’re in the final stages of preparation and there will be a public update on Monday AU time. :)

That’s good news :) Thanks for update :)

One of the reasons html templates don’t sell so good is exactly this small price difference. Let’s be honest, compared to a full options wordpress theme such as udesign, html templates are just worthless.

Plenty of buyers LIKE manually customizing their own site. They’re buyers who are comfortable with HTML and feel more in control of their site than having to rely on a backend to create everything exactly the way they want it. They’re also people who don’t plan on updating their site that often, and therefore using a CMS doesn’t appeal to them.

We’re all here because of the success of FlashDen. And FlashDen’s pricing always has been and still is higher than TF and CC. So if FlashDen can flourish with higher prices, I don’t understand why TF and CC can’t either.
well said man.

I was pointing out at the complexity of html templates compared to wordpress themes and not their usefulness. Obviously there are still lots of clients who prefer / need html templates and they are a very important part of themeforest, but my opinion is that the difference between html and wordpress should be higher than it is now in terms of price.

I don’t think that prices for other categories should be raised now. Last time when these were raised(for html templates), wordpress prices weren’t taken into consideration and now we have many html templates priced at $20 which is very close to the wordpress prices of $35. One of the reasons html templates don’t sell so good is exactly this small price difference. Let’s be honest, compared to a full options wordpress theme such as udesign, html templates are just worthless.

Blame Envato for not raising the wordpress theme prices back then when they did it for html templates. Now it will be a bad move and will make the html templates sell even less.
