I have several products that I pay a yearly developer license for. In my opinion, the Visual Composer author is losing money by not offering a renewable developer license for $100 to $150/year. Well worth it for his product.

I am currently using the User Synch plugin from WPMU to synchronize user accounts between several sites. However, it has a number of limitations and the author only checks in every month or two…

I have several web sites by the same client and they need numerous employees to access various sites. So I am using the plugin to synch accounts from their main site to all of the “slave” sites. The problem is, it synchs ALL of the accounts, not just a subset of accounts.

I need the ability to specify WHICH accounts or roles get synched between sites specific sites. More importantly, I need “two-way” synch so that if a user on a slave site changes their password on that site, it propagates back to the master site and then to other slave sites. And it needs to synch all user meta-data.

I’m not looking for a one-off custom job, this is just a suggestion in case an author is looking for something and may also find this useful.

To add my 2c from my recent experience on the Envato marketplace. The prices on the market are incredible cheap for their “real” market value. Paying a license fee each time is not only viable but more inline with the authors sustainability.

To be honest I have not often come across a developer or reseller license. I couldn’t justify a license which is 10x the price and used 50+ times. I’d way prefer getting the 1x minus Envato fee for each use.

Anyway use it don’t use it.

The lack of such an option means more dollars being spend OUTSIDE of Envato.

Developers should be allowed to “opt-in” to such a plan if they choose.

And I agree with WebSmacker, if you are high volume, the “one license at a time” model is cost prohibitive.

A little over half my income is from online royalties. Sadly, Envato pays among the lowest commissions in the industry, so the majority of my royalties come from other sites. But it can be done.

I have purchased an amazing plugin from Codecanyon called “Visual Composer” that I have used on my personal web site.

However, the lack of a “developer license” to allow me unlimited use on client web sites has prevented me from purchasing it for clients. So, sadly, I have purchased another similar product (though not as good) elsewhere which does have a developer license option.

I think Envato is doing their developers and buyers a disservice by not supporting a developer license option for plugins and themes.

For most things, I would agree, but this one isn’t going anywhere soon. It’s still growing.

I am looking for a Wordpress Plugin that imports all images for a specific hashtag into either the Wordpress media gallery, a custom post-type, or (preferably) a designated NextGen gallery.

This could be used by any web site that deals with events. They could have people tweet photos of the event with a designated hashtag (ie: #mycoolevent) and have those images automatically imported into their web site.

I’m not looking for a consultant to create this plugin for me personally. I’m just offering this as a suggestion for a product that could be used by most web sites as an easy way to gather images from twitter. And if it were a product here, I’d buy it several times for several web sites.

It’s an election year here in the U.S. and the AE templates here are a year or older. Looking for fresh templates, if you’re looking for ideas on what project to do next.

This is a bunting:

I need an animated cloth bunting with an alpha channel.

Just a single animated bunting at 1080p 30fps at 30 seconds, or any shorter length if it loops.

It would be great if it “flowed” down from above into it’s normal resting position and then “subtly” animated in the wind.

Looking to purchase it here, as I have credits.

Thanks!

When you are trying to stand out from everyone else, you don’t want the same imagery that your competition is using. You don’t have to make it specific to a country or region, but being creative is about thinking OUTSIDE of the box, not saying “it’s too hard” and following the rest of the sheep.
