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.

Hi everyone!

Support frequently gets refund requests from WordPress theme buyers who believe that the theme which they have purchased is broken because they get a “Broken Theme/Stylesheet Missing WordPress” error when uploading or activating the theme on their WordPress installation.

These errors generally occur because the theme has been installed incorrectly.

Our moderator & support extraordinaire Drew (CreatingDrew) has created a really helpful screencast & article which clearly & simply explains how to solve this problem if you’re having problems.

You can find the full article & screencast here: http://wiki.envato.com/buying/support-buying/solving-broken-theme-issues/

Share the news with your buyers if you’re an author! :-)

I can’t find this video anymore. I have linked the buyers for years to that video but now it’s gone. Could anyone please point me to its location ?

Nothing lasts forever. ActiveDen was a fantastic place to make money, many people did and later we all know what happened; for all those who thinks TF will bring them infinite money-time, be ready for surprises. Nothing new, anyway, happens to almost anything on life. Where money is, there always be crowds, once the money ends, crowd will move to other place. More files, even not top notch, means more money to Envato. Nothing wrong with it.

If they did this just for the money, then they just cut the branch under their own feet – selling wordpress themes is still a big cash cow and with themeforest oversaturated and authors pulling away, there is no other Envato marketplace to go to sell them, so they are the ones who are losing most.

And if you need to bring users from outside to sell themes here, what’s the point of ThemeForest then?

This.

It will be very interesting to learn why the quality bar was lowered in the first place. Was it Envato felt that it discouraged new authors with the high standards and they were thinking that with no “new blood” the marketplaces will die ? Or they just went for quantity over quality trying to get more cash ?
