A big request for the developers. I just put up my first file, and I had a customer purchase it thinking it’s a WordPress Template. Don’t you think it would be a great idea to have a sidebar text that says in what category it resides? For example, Site Template , WordPress Theme, etc, etc, etc?

I think there would be less confusions.

It says it at the top, above the item name.

Then why do customers buy the item, and then say ” I believed it was WordPress? ”... it means it needs to be more visible :)

people make mistakes, it was one person not 100… now if everyone that bought your theme thought it was WordPress then there’d be a problem

Buyers can believe what they want. No one is deceiving them though so it’s just ignorance.

I have 5 WordPress themes and 5 matching HTML themes in my porfolio, and I’ve had this only happen maybe 5-6 times ever where the buyer purchased an HTML template expecting it be a WP theme for whatever reason.

You’d think the price would give it away? What new HTML theme is $30+ and what new WordPress theme is less than $25?

I had a buyer that purchased my WordPress plug-in and asked me to help him “make it work with Opera 10”. Now your buyer is way too intelligent ;)

The fact is still the same, buyers get confused. It would be nice to have the category where the item was uploaded in, shown in the sidebar , for example Site Templates | HTML CSS or… WordPress | 3.2
