Agreed. It’s horrible for me on a mac. Changing the default scrollbar behavior in such a way is a big no-no in my book, but it’s so popular for some reason. I just can’t grasp why people like to add useless sh*t to their themes.

+1, leave scroll bars well and truly alone

Hey guys :)

Whenever I’ve done HTML templates in the past, I’ve just run the images folder through a heavy blur script in photoshop, this has always been accepted by the reviewers.

Another author here (sorry, I forget) uses the crystallise filter in Photoshop for the same thing, which looks a bit more elegant than a blur :)

vuzzu,

Nothing is hidden on purpose, it’s clearly a bug which both Travis and Christian have jumped in to assure that it’s being looked into.

I think it’s not right when TF/Envato interferes with non TF content.

But it is Envato Content, they’re attaching $200 worth of freebies directly to a purchase made on Envato. If I were to release a theme that said ”$200 Free Themes Extra!” on the item page, there would be uproar, just because they have gamed the system and done it externally doesn’t mean it’s not exactly the same thing, bundling.

You could abandon using an iFrame altogether, and just let wordPress grab that for you from a simple URL (use esc_url to sanitize)

Link for anyone confused: [link removed]

I don’t feel that offering $200 worth of premium themes for free with a $43 ThemeForest purchase is either “clever” or “fair”, it’s just a boring bundling technique used to undercut others on the marketplace.

As I and others have said, I really hope this isn’t allowed in the end, or TF just got a whole lot worse.

(Sidenote, I understand that plugin bundling is a similar concept, but those are atleast usually connected to the theme being sold, other themes have no business being part of a theme sale)

It is allowed since those themes are not selling on TF so what they will gonna do with them sell or give for free or for $43 is on their own.

I don’t think this is allowed, as this is adding incentive to a TF purchase, which is essentially gaming this system of sales (TF) and creating an unfair playing field.

I have roughly 10 – 20 themes that are not on TF that I could give away for free with any verified TF purchase, but I don’t because that’s not creating a fair and level playing field.

Flagged for staff reply.

Collect up your full CSS string and sanitise with: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_kses

Also, use native functions for adding custom CSS: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_add_inline_style
