How do I get a live preview for my Site Template?

http://themeforest.net/item/rock-star-site-template/37420

I included a “live_preview.zip” file.

Not sure what I did wrong here.

Do I need to host it on my own server and then send Support an email or what?

Thnx all. Flash_Cart

Currently ThemeForest doesn’t host the live previews. The reason you include the files for the live preview is so that when/if ThemeForest does host them, the files for all items already approved will be uploaded already.

If you would like to have a live preview currently, visit your item page while logged in and click the edit tab near the top. In the first section there is a field to input a link to a live preview that you are hosting.

Hope this helps. :-)

So, how do you “obfuscate” the HTML /CSS code like it says in the “Site Template Upload” instructions.

In the upload page there’s a section called “demo url”. Put your url in there, assuming you have it hosted somewhere.
