A request to themeforest and to all sellers:

I buy a lot of themes and it is really annoying, to have no possibility of getting informed about when an author offers an update of his theme, so that I can download it.

I’Ve subscribed to RSS feed of themeforest and of some authors, but often the authors leave only a comment in comment section, that they have updated their theme and I get not notice of that :-(

I don’t have the time to make “testing downloads” again, whether my bought themes are updated now.

Often the author announced in comment section, that he has made an update and send for approval. But I have downloaded it 5 days long – and nothing has been updated :-( This is very time wasting and annoying.

Is or will be there any work-around, that I get a reliable notification, when a (bought) theme is updated?

Perhaps a notification function in my “download” menu here at themeforest would be nice, for example a button “updated” right next to the download option :-D

Thanks.

and how do you cope with it? Visiting permanently your bought themes here, whether there’s an update?

@colorit I totally agree that something has to be done about this – it is after all really necessary.

May I suggest that TF start a update account at twitter or something as a stop gap and when there is an update reviewed and made live they simply twitter it to everyone? That would at least get the message out to those that wish to know and really wouldn’t take anything to get going – heck if authors are interested I would setup an account and twitter to everyone – but it would be dependent on authors emailing me.

Just an idea – but TF needs to get something official in place.

I don’t like follow twitter – time wasting, if you have to follow many persons (privately).

But I heavily use RSS -feeds with my Outlook.

So couldn’t there be an RSS -Channel for updated themes?

And who at themeforest cares about it? Is there any “feature suggestion address”?
