Of course … this how you writen when creating a widget:
if ( isset( $before_title ) ) { echo $before_title; }
It’s bad practice to create useless DOM.

^ this. Though I get the feeling OP is referring to a theme with a built in widget or similar that unfortunately isn’t doing this check.

Though these should be hidden by your theme, you can use the :empty CSS selector to display: none the empty tags.

@collis, could you please answer me one question?

If you’re sending out invoices on our behalf, and insist that we are the direct sellers, how is it that you’re able to collect and pay VAT on our behalf? Don’t the two points clearly contradict each other in terms of who is the actual seller?

Do you think 10 years from now it will be the same case with Material and Flat design too?

Yes :)

Signed up to be an Envato Express Service Provider, never heard back about it, seriously, @lukemeehan could you look into that please? “First dibs” was announced months ago and I’m still unable to offer install services for my buyers.

Use the native WordPress option API for this rather than external frameworks: http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Customization_API

Whaaattt!! :O
People have a lot of money to waste!! :O
If its really that easy, well, Imma make some big cash B)

You’re talking about a well designed card game with great illustrations and a humorous edge, tie into that a “web famous” cartoonist who’s part of the project, and very reasonable prices for getting your hands on the card game and this is simply a great product, I think the terms “waste” & “easy” is a bit of an interesting choice here.

Hey Vibe!

Just reading through your comment now, but since I opened this thread, please let me be the first to say, I have no ill-will towards you at all, I merely think it was bad form for Envato to “re-blog” this.

Hope this thread didn’t come as a shock to you mate :)

EDIT: Your comment makes total sense, thanks for taking the time to visit this thread, as I said above I hope you hadn’t thought some of the tension in this thread was aimed at you.

Personally I’m just frustrated that Envato “re-blogged” this since it includes opinions that are detrimental to the marketplace for newer or lower selling authors, as I said in another comment, this is 100% fine for personal blogs, but when Envato have put this on their own blog, it makes it seem like an Envato opinion & guide, and that’s not great.

The tone of this post really does portray non ‘mega’ authors as amateur hacks trying to make a quick buck. It’s really disappointing to see Envato promoting this kind of opinion.

Hit the nail on the head there mate, that’s exactly what annoyed me about the opinions of the post, perfectly fine for a personal blog, but to be reposted on the Envato blog is insane.
