452 sales so far, a great month!
Yes! Now put on the T-Shirt, and pour ice water on your head
The list includes all themes that mention either Slider Revolution or Showbiz Pro in their item descriptions, even those that are already using patched versions of the plugin. We’re doing this so we cover a range of scenarios such as a buyer purchasing a now-updated theme back when it was still using a vulnerable version.Hope that makes sense
This doesn’t make sense when the theme was released after Feb 2014 and has never had a vulnerable version of Revslider anywhere near it though? Seriously, I have multiple themes on the list that shouldn’t be anywhere near either list since they were released well after the patch!
My theme does not run in /wp-admin/widgets.php so how the error occurred here?
Likely your theme or a required plugin of your theme is enqueueing either JS or CSS in wp-admin that is affecting the widget areas.
Did the reviewer give you any browser or OS details to match their video?
I must admit, over times I’ve skirted both sides of the fence when it comes to these big “multipurpose” themes, but this is starting to get a bit silly now.
50+ demos for a theme is simply unsustainable, never mind the 6+ bundled premium plugins, Envato really do need to start stepping in on issues like this.
If Envato are making moves toward sustainability (read: support changes) then sustainability needs to be the name of the game across all areas, and a market where buyers are starting to expect to see 10+ demos per theme (I’ve already been asked why I don’t do this by buyers) is simply unsustainable.
Great stuff as always Sam, also, nice one Iman
If you can’t built a WordPress theme from scratch, you shouldn’t be selling WordPress themes, seriously, what happens when you need to debug it?
Spend some time learning to develop WordPress themes properly, carefully choose your frameworks, and develop a product that is your own.
Grabbing a starter theme, slapping a page builder in and updating the CSS would work for a site you’re making just for yourself, but it’s likely to be very problematic if you start selling it.
@natman, could you please remove all of my themes from the affected list, any that were potentially affected have been updated, and you’ve listed plenty of my themes that were released well past the 4.2 security update that fixed this flaw.
I know you’ve scraped that theme list for speed, but I can count at least 5 of my themes in that list that should be nowhere near it.
EDIT: Sorry, that list is useless I’ll admit one of my themes was affected by this, and it’s not even in that list, then you’ve added multiple of my themes that are not affected, and they are in this list?! Can’t wait for all the support tickets from my confused buyers…
Fact of the matter is that the theme met the marketplace standards, and yet was rejected three times by a reviewer who clearly was not capable of making the right call…
100% wrong, as the interview stated it took the review team manager to look at the theme and “see it’s potential” before it was accepted.
As has been shown 1000’s of times before, the first thing viewed when reviewing a theme is the design quality, if this doesn’t meet standards then the theme is rejected.
BTW, the reviewers do a great job, it would be a good idea to be a little more respectful to people who are seemingly massively overworked and doing the best job humanly possible.
