If it is wordpress surely something should be done if it is wordpress, it’ll basically be useless after an update or 2. Envato’s refund policy seems to be you download, no refund. Hopefully common sense prevails for a theme with no support or updates. Given he has taken so long (I assume) to install, he hasn’t actually used the theme before now.

I’d be all over your new theme thread if , when you openly admit the theme was bad, you leave the customers high and dry with no support.

Gotta laugh at the authors clambering to get their theme of the list for fear of it affecting sales and not worrying about their customers who maybe don’t update often and would be unware of any issues , if it were not for the full list, that they are affected. They’d be the kind of authors I’d avoid.

It seems envato were more than a bit slow off the mark with this to say the least. Then the fact if the plugins are bundled the theme creator is responsible just adds even more confusion and delay to the issue.

If you have a good host, they will fix issues like this for you, I have been hacked before, a reason why I far prefer html, and hostgator cleaned it up without me even being aware I had been hacked. When a site is making you money you don’t need the hassle of constantly having to update. If you host other sites on the same hosting plan the hackers have full access to those as well so make sure you check all your sites.

I did get 2 emails from envato the other day but given this was fixed months ago I’d say alot of people are gonna be having issues. Hackers send out bots to seek sites with the vunerable version installed.

Longer term themes either come with no plugins or a licence for supplied plugins so they are made aware of any issues far faster. Wordpress is easier to use than html for most people but it comes with a price.

For buyers there should be a tiered discount, I don’t see anything there that is useful for buyers, a vast majority will deposit prepaid, I’d say your play on lowering fees without prepaid is any affiliates will lose out as the last time I looked any commission was based on pre deposited funds only, that’s correct right ?

Also for buyers who have bought say over 250-300 items should get a periodical 25% one off voucher so they can stock up and save money. This would create a burst of revenue for both envato and authors, it’s basic marketing. Envato has never really been on the ball for marketing, this only helps envato not many others.

Ok I’m no html expert however I have seen examples , lets say there is a photo of someone holding a tablet or laptop they have made the screen a placeholder. I have managed to get a video showing so I’d looking to use different images and create cool placeholders within photos. How is this done. I realize if I had a similar photograph I’d use photoshop to remove the original screen image so effectively the screen area is transparent, how do I position a placeholder to fit exactly.

I realize most will not post a step by step, I understand, but if someone could point me in the right direction to learning this it’d be appreciated. Having a creative mind I see many opportunities for this and I’d like to toy around with it.

Ok I’ll use a photo to clarify. Lets say I buy this photo and use it on my website http://photodune.net/item/girl-holding-laptop-with-network-contacts/5646876?WT.ac=solid_search_thumb&WT.seg_1=solid_search_thumb&WT.z_author=dolgachov

How would I create a placeholder for where the existing screen content is e.g swap out the mind map type content and use that area as a placeholder for a video etc.

Thanks in advance for any help. I’d point to a theme or 2 but don’t want to look like I am favoring a particular theme.

I doubt they are, most places make a point of mentioning forthcoming black friday deals. I’d say it would be too late for them to do it now, marketing is usually done ahead of time with these events and people have a look through etc to see what deals they want.

I think Creattive meant you cannot use the after effects trial for commercial use you can use the template for commercial use. Most come with a guide,if not open the project in after effects,there will compositions for each placeholder,text etc.They are easy to edit even for a complete newbie.

If you’re stuck just message the author for guidance they will be happy to guide you.

Lol I mentioned all this over a year ago in another thread where people wanted feedback from buyers. I could not agree more with the OP,I do exactly what he does.

I really hope projects like this show up.
