Very useful thread. so, how do you implement the purchase code check in the notifiers? None of the links above have a check for the same…
For now I’m using the Pippin script as a fast and easy solution.
(BTW, probably I’ve not I yet thanked you for creating that )
I’ve thought about inserting an auto updater but the purchase code matter blocked me.
After 8 months as author I had no problems.
Of course having an unified Envato updating system would be great!
Is there meanwhile a good solution concerning this topic?
I have purchased so many Wordpress themes from Themeforest as well as Wordpress plugins from Codecanyon, so that it is really not possible due to lack of time, to check at these sites permanently, whether there is a plugin’s or theme’s update
@colorit It is up to the plugin/theme developers to include an updater, so the best thing you can do is try and encourage authors without updates to include one
Can I upload the xml file (keeping the version numbers) directly to codecanyon, together with the others files for a new new item, instead of keeping the xml file on my web server? Is there a way to do that?
Check this out (only for themes though): https://github.com/bitfade/themeforest-themes-update
Made possible by http://themeforest.net/user/pixelentity (bitfade)
Must. Necro. This.
sorry for reviving this thread – but am I right that this STILL is not solved by Envato?
I have recently discovered a few real gems on Themeforest/Codecanyon, but apart from some who include an update function into their themes (like Kriesi.at) the best you get is an email from themeforest when the plugin is updated, then you can manually download it and update it (with the usual hassle, deactivating, deleting, uploading via WordPress, losing settings, overwriting via FTP, messing up things… )
Is there a working 3rd party solution in the meantime to really AUTO-update plugins from this marketplace?
thanks a bunch! Martin
