If I recall, you can open a new buyer account and buy your item, and then run a competition to basically give away the details for that account, thereby giving your item in a contest, but also purchasing the item from Envato correctly.
Don’t quote me on this though, check with Envato
Damn, Notch got paid! Good for him I guess. $2.5bn is absolutely insane though, “Mojang made $100m profit last year”
No no no, this should not be allowed. Any theme should work independently. That means that the only requirement for a theme is to have native blog function and everything else may be done just after the plugin activation.
Thanks for the insight Smartik
I already have all my extra functionality in plugins, I was thinking more along the lines of themes that share nav_menu_walker classes etc. it would be great if they all pulled those from the plugin, but I can work around this.
Anyway, thanks everyone, it seems like framework in a plugin is a good idea then, just need to ensure the blog element of the theme works fine without the plugin, no problem
One thing to consider is that you’d probably have to make sure the theme worked fine-ish without the plugin activated.
This is the one and only issue about it being a plugin really, I mean tbh what I’d probably do is just have a modal pop-up if they’re on the site without the plugin sending them to the TGMPA page, but I wonder if the reviewers would have a problem with this? Hmmm.
So I’m updating my theme framework, and thinking of moving it out to a plugin, require with TGMPA and everything should be good.
The idea behind this being that I can easily update my framework then across all themes with just 1 plugin update if anything crops up.
The other alternative is a baked in framework, that can update independently, I’ve seen a few authors do this, but I’ll be honest, I have no idea how to handle this.
Any opinions on either?
@tommusrhodus Does this mean you have received your PayPal payment today? I have the old PayPal interface and my primary currency is USD (so updated interface and currency are not the problem in my case). Still, no payment for me today, not even the “Your Request for Withdrawal has been Processed (i.e. we sent you money!)” email from Envato.
It’s still the 15th for another 13 hours, don’t worry, it will be coming, I have roughly 50% of my withdrawals processed so far, the others are still queued.
Paypal have updated it’s user interface, with a frustrating new feature.
If you don’t have your account set-up with a USD currency section, you’ll see that your payment has come in (in $) but your balance is still reading zero.
Click the “paypal balance” title, then click “manage currencies” add in USD to your list.
Surprise! Your money is now showing.
What a horrible UX this is!
I’ve marked this for staff reply, as far as I know you have to include a local copy, but if I can just link my buyers to online docs, well then that’s going to save me a lot of time when it comes to documentation updates!
