Same thing happened to me. I did not receive any notice; and, I have a problem with this expiration system. It is not costing envato any time or money to keep a deposit active. In fact, they have the money even before it’s spent – therefore they are making interest off it. If you don’t spend it in a given amount of time they take it? (I bet this is hidden somewhere in the fine print, but I find this really shady and disappointing)

I only lost $19 but I’ve been a customer since 2009 and have purchased numerous templates; I teach graphic design and am the webmaster for a teachers union. I have always directed my students and marketing agents with the union to graphic river and themeforest. If they don’t refund my $19 this practise will stop.

I just dropped $2000 on a union desktop and another $750 on adobe cs 6 – when we need to buy something we simply buy it. I was logging on to buy something else, only to discover I had forfeited my deposit 3 weeks ago. This is simply unacceptable – yes it’s only $19 but if this is how we’re treated as customers. Then I (and everyone I know) will no longer be a customer.

There are numerous style sheets – how do I attach them all?

Anyone with any ideas? Did I put this thread in the wrong area?

I was talking about this once before but I don’t think I was very clear (sorry). I am working on a site which I would like to be as WYSIWYG as possible (I may not be the editor down the road).

Here’s a page of the site: http://www.martialartstournaments.ca/union/healthandsafety.html When I edit it in Kompozer it looks like: http://www.martialartstournaments.ca/union/site%20kompozer.jpg When I edit it in Dreamweaver it looks like: http://www.martialartstournaments.ca/union/site%20dreamweaver.jpg

How can I get Dreamweaver to look closer to the ‘real deal’? Closer to Kompozer? The other person who may be editing the site uses Dreamweaver and she doesn’t want to switch.

PS I bought the template from Themeforest and the author was no help.

Also, Whomever wishes to edit the site after I’m gone may add and remove whole sections of the site so wordpress may not be the solution. Anyhow, I’ve had some people email me all wanting to build a CMS website – All I want is it to look decent in Dreamweaver. At present it looks like this:

I also tried Microsoft Web Expression 4 – no dice

Exactly. When on design mode everything is askew. Even when I load the CSS background don’t show up ; nothing is in the right spot. But I can change something and upload it and it looks fine. It’s just all screwey on dreamweaver. If the secretary wants to edit the site she can not code. So I just want it to look the same in dreamweaver as it does online.

Hi,

Well the full details of my requirements is that I want the website to look WYSIWYG on dreamweaver. That’s it.

Hi all,

I’ve purchased a few templates from Themeforest and one of them I use for our small district union website. Now, I may not be the one editing this site forever and ever; so I need it to look WYSIWYG on dreamweaver in case someone who can not code has to update it.

I e-mailed the original author and he in unavailable for freelance work.

I thought that prehaps it’s a tweak in the CSS files but I’m not sure how to do it myself. So if anyone could help and provide a cost that would be great. I’ve piggybacked the site on another site of mine until I can go live with it in October.

suggestions?

Thanks! Doug

Oh ya… and WYSWYG – I can code, don’t get me wrong. But being able to load up a template in a version of Dreamweaver and to see the site the same way it would look on both firefox and Explorer – AND being able to simply click and edit though a GUI would be great!!

I just went to the search field and typed in some key words – these had a “No results for….”

- plumber - welder - electrician - carpenter - HVAC - Truck Driver (independent) - construction - contractor - gas fitter

... on and on.

Wordpress would not be needed. Skill Trades people would have someone else setup their website (they don’t have time to play around with a template) and then it would simply sit as their online ‘searchable’ presence in that particular area

Well I came to Themeforest to see if there were a bunch of them (like monster template) then I could simply choose one. So, I never even thought about it ;-)

I typed “electrician” into the search field and there seems to be a bunch of people searching for electrician, carpenter, artisians templates. I was thinking there is an untapped market here. Let’s say a “luthier” – lots of guys are making musical instruments – electricians (lots of guys run thier own home business) – plumbers, stained glass worker, car painters …..

But off the top of my head, a nice slider at the top with a spot for a colourful logo above – square buttons (nothing fancy). A great contact form – maybe 5 sub pages…. these types of sites are basically online business cards for these people – they don’t want to be changing them around. Maybe a combo of one and two columns…
