@stmcan did you mean the screen option on the menu page? that didn’t work.

Don’t you see these options when you click the screen options http://cl.ly/image/1l0w3i3m420K/Image%202014-04-03%20at%205.11.33%20AM.png on Appearance > Menus

If adding those classes manually not resolves, you’ll need to contact the author.

Hi,

- Click the “screen options” button at top of the page - Activate “CSS Classes” - And add current_page_item and current-menu-item by leaving a space between them

I’m not sure which theme is it, but with this way you can add those selectors by manually.

Hope that helps.

Hi guys, What’s hapening here ?? Our theme Kallyas for wordpress that was released earlier this year was just soft disabled. The email we have received states that the theme is not compatible with the new requirements ??

@envato Guys, could you please clarify as we’re expecting this action after 6 months or so. Also, please send email to authors before disabling an item and give a week at least to correct the things. Isn’t that possible?

I got 2 errors when wp_config is enable, mostly TGM plugin activation..
Strict Standards: Declaration of TGM_Bulk_Installer_Skin::before() should be compatible with WP_Upgrader_Skin::before() in E:\xampp\htdocs\COLAB\Square\WordPress\wp-content\themes\square\includes\tgm\class-tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 1893

Strict Standards: Declaration of TGM_Bulk_Installer_Skin::after() should be compatible with WP_Upgrader_Skin::after() in E:\xampp\htdocs\COLAB\Square\WordPress\wp-content\themes\square\includes\tgm\class-tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 1893

Noticed that! Here is the fix http://pastebin.com/9SuttT69

added $title value to the following functions

function before($title = '') { function after($title = '') {

$300 for TimeMachine to sit in your home.

$5/pm for BackBlaze to backup unlimited data from anywhere in the world.

You know what to do! :P

Hi, Sounds promising! Is it fast enough? BTW, I’m currently using SugarSync and Time Capsule together. I have two computers and sync is a real headache on mac’s.

You didn’t understand my question. Let’s say I’m just starting and I’m creating a plugin for the first theme. But the second theme is a real estate theme. And real estate themes have their own features and shortcodes, different than the first theme(that doesn’t need the real estate features). And maybe the real estate theme uses the pricing tables in a different way than the first theme. What’s to be done then? I’m talking about shortcodes here. Since we’re not plugin developers, we can’t create an extremely complex plugin to cover, for example, all the portfolio possibilities, we only create what we need for a specific theme. When a new portfolio theme comes in the discussion, we re-review what we have in the current plugin and discover we need some new features / functions / etc. So in the end we basically need a new plugin for each theme, which is extremely bad and very hard to maintain.

Ultimately I’d suggest that you have one plugin for each major “kind” of functionality. Create a plugin that handles all of the features needed by your real estate themes; create a plugin that handles all of the portfolio features. When you do that, you can use the plugin in one theme or in 15 themes. You can also mix and match them.

If you’re able to create those features in a theme, it’s really not hard to move them into a plugin. The code is identical, only the location is different.

It is not possible for all themes. In my case i have to create another product showcase plugin for my each theme because there are some options just for the theme and it is related with the design.

Hi Guys,

I have few questions and points about the new standards;

1) I am quitly changing, editing my framework and shortcodes when developing a new theme. So, after the new rules i have to include a couple of plugins for each theme. They will be named like; a shortcode pack for theme x, a shortcode pack for theme y, a shortcode pack for theme z and they will be useless for any other theme in the market. And also my all “average wp user” buyers will confuse while installing / updating the themes since they bought them to have a website like the demo they saw without much effort.

2) I have no problem to improve the quality of my themes but to make them compatible with those new standards (shortcodes to plugins) is not “maintenance” it is “coding from scratch”. It is not possible to make it in 8 weeks or in a year, even if possible how i am going to survive without releasing new themes during the update time. So, guys please do not force the existing themes for the new standards it might be destructive for authors who has themes more than 4-5 multipurpose, “all in one” alike themes.

3) I cannot imagine how many support request that i will need to answer when i do that. Three times more support time maybe more. We can’t handle it even i hire new support staffs.

4) What if a theme lets add buttons, layouts, etc. as an HTML code directly via a button on the editor. http://rttheme17.demo-rt.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/editor-buttons.png

5) What if a theme has an embedded template builder that uses some of theme’s shortcodes to build layouts? http://rttheme17.demo-rt.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Template-Builder-1.png When a user opts out to not installing the shortcode plugin, most of the template builder functions won’t work, so i will need to duplicate some functions. A code trash!

I am cool with the improving codes and overall quality but if you guys force the existing themes, whatever time period do you offer, i will delete my older themes and will keep just 3-4 of them that sells still enough. And it is not fair for my tens of thousands buyers who trusted me to keep the themes up to date. I am even updating some of my themes that is not selling two copies in a month. I hope you get the point.

To summarize, the new rules will going to punish old authors and buyers. This is not going to kill trust of the marketplace but it will hurt very badly.

Let’s hope the best for us all.
