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
- Author had a Free File of the Month
- Grew a moustache for the Envato Movember competition
- Sold between 10 000 and 50 000 dollars
- Exclusive Author
- Beta Tester
- Microlancer Beta Tester
- Bought between 50 and 99 items
- Referred between 1 and 9 users
- Has been a member for 1-2 years
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?
