I didn’t mean actually providing a link to the buyer to search. The link I meant would just be to some simple instructions – like a blog post or something that explains these basic searching tips. The method of searching is just a matter of understanding basics concepts of searching Google. And Google actually seems to cache Theme Forest pages several times a day.

Sure, no I understand. Just say’n…

The main problem with your own forum is the manual user verification.

I gotta think that devs have plans to improve the item discussion boards a bit sometime in the future, yeah? Even with something as simple as built-in search, seems it would change everything.

A forum structure for each item would definitley be great, thats true, but lets face it: thats a huge modification to the current structure, and even if Envato Devs would start immediatly it would probably last months to get the job done.

Maybe they could outsource the forums with something like http://vanillaforums.com/. It could be a closed forum, and the only way to access it would be through Themeforest once you’ve bought the item.

I’m not really familiar with hosted forums providers, but since Envato would be a huge customer I’m sure the provider could make an effort to provide a few authentication features. Then again, I can understand not wanting to give away control of an important part of your business.

perhaps you could extend the API , so we can check wheither the user is logged in and purchased one of our items.

E.g. those fb widgets you see everywhere of fan pages, they check wheither you’re already a fan or not
