I get a lot of questions from buyers on what exactly is the Envato WordPress Toolkit plugin for, why do I need it? I’m sure other authors get the same thing, it would be awesome if you guys (Envato) could put together a short instructional screencast on what it does and how to use it.

If not maybe when I get some free time I’ll put one together.

Great idea!

I’d be happy to put something together for this. I’ll let you know once I’ve done something and you can let me know if you think it’ll answer all your buyers’ questions :)

Thanks for the suggestion!

Hey mate! It’s on my to-do list, but I haven’t had a chance to get to it quite yet. Will do soon, unless you beat me to it :)

There’s an alternate theme update plugin using the envato-api class

https://github.com/bitfade/themeforest-themes-update

couple of screenshots and a video in the description.

Roger that, haven’t had any free time between working on a new theme, support and daily theme updates ;)

That’s pretty dope, but the Envato WP Toolkit plugin is required.

A video would be great!

Regarding the new theme submission requirements – Plugins are now not allowed to be bundled with themes. Is this plugin an exception to that rule?

Any source for that? I thought that what Envato wanted is that we move all the functionality to plugins…
