I think you’re just looking for basic iFrame functionality here?
index.php must always be the standard blog archive template, do not use it for anything else, use a custom page template instead
The message relates to the output pages, run your URL though the validator
Had it loads of times. Once from a top author too – I had not used the theme yet
I’ve deleted a few themes along the way, but if any of my buyers ever contact me I just send the files straight over Sometimes authors just want to stop selling the theme, but haven’t necessarily stopped supporting or at least providing it.
@OP: have you contacted the author?
So you don’t support the user till he provides the second/third/forth/... purchase code? Doesn’t this make them unhappy or feeling we are accusing them?
Quoting licensing terms and explaining that you can see multiple URLs with the theme (I sometimes list these also) means that the buyer knows what you’re asking is for professional reasons only.
Whilst I have certainly had a few cold responses to this, 9/10 buyers completely understand and will respond accordingly
Remember that we’re here to sell a product, our support is offered for free (though I agree is definitely required) so we shouldn’t feel scared of our buyers, rather just keep them supported and informed on their own requirements of buying and using our themes
Here’s the canned response I use for situations like this, it’s always been well received:
I see multiple separate URLs on your account using this theme,
Please note that ThemeForest licensing, and certainly our support terms require that you make 1 purchase per URL the site is installed on:http://themeforest.net/licenses/regular
If you would like continued support, please reply with 1 purchase code per URL, I will validate the purchase codes for you and then provide support ASAP. Please not we cannot continue until this is provided.
Hope that helps!
