SergeyFrolovich, your attempt at succeeding the easy way just got you, and your product, a really bad reputation.

I would rather invest some time in creating a product that actually works.
Good luck.

Hey, let’s not go that way. :)
From what I can see that plugin is pretty complex and I’m sure a lot of work was put into it. A few presentation problems can’t deny that.

n-media asked a question and I believe he got the answer.

About the referral link: we are really sending thousands of visitors to TF, so I don’t think that there is need in such violent measures. We have corrected the things you noticed, and if there is something left to correct – feel free to write us, and we will correct it;

The amount of visitors you send to TF is irrelevant; deception is deception.

You can at least explicitly state that the themes were not created with your plugin. How about something like “These themes have not been created with Divine Elemente” right under the heading “Themes”?

If your plugin is capable of converting PSDs to themes of similar quality then you could say, “These themes have not been created with Divine Elemente, but our plugin is capable of producing similar results.”

N-media, concerning your questions.

There is no precise answer to your question.

Crozer, Divine Elemente is at early development stage yet, and we have just started adding the necessary functionality for professional premium themes, which are sold here at Themeforest.

wickedpixel, thank you for your support, because our small team is working on the plugin day in and day out, and in my opinion, OrganicBeeMedia, it is unfair to write such things about us

But thanks to your support, we will be improving the product making it more and more quality, and we will be glad to listen to specific suggestions concerning Divine Elemente.

There are already thousands of loyal users. I think, now you can use Divine Elemente as framework for fast theme prototyping for TF and later add significant additions manually.

Looking into the future:

Why not leave all the coding / standard code support (tested & secure) to the products like Divine Elemente in the future? Like it happened to content management systems – the one WordPress functionality is used as a platform by millions of websites.

We will be glad to help creating a WordPress theme for designers and illustrators, because if we look around, then we will be able to find themes at TF which are similar with dozens of other themes:

- this can give more variety to TF’s marketplace for theme buyers and also more freedom for designers / illustrators which can also make money on TF and embody the most interesting ideas without being distracted by routine.

Please watch for the updates, we are always glad to listen to your suggestions.

its unfair to suggest that developers that put hundreds of hours working on themes in real development was done by automation….. which is what you are currently doing… its a complete insult to say you can create an automation product that can code in with the detail and quality of a developer… ALSO can you please link us to the articles that tech crunch, smashing mag, themedigtial, and daily blog tips wrote about your plugin? or at least provide who from those companies actually wrote those comments, right now all your trying to do is mislead people about your product.

Did anyone watch the full video for this on their homepage? I think if you’re going to take the time to learn that plugin and use it, your time would be better spent learning how to make an actual WordPress theme.

ThemeBlvd, yes, you’re right. You can always learn and spend some time on manual creation of a theme. The key phrase is “spend time”, because if you want to create the theme next time, you need to make many things from the beginning, even if you use your best practices to speed up the process.

Ideally, we see how we can automate about 80% of the routine, and now only 10% is done. But as you can see, even providing the customers with this early version, we still have many clients, the ones who don’t want to code / waste their time.

Concerning the true professionals here on TF. Currently the product was not marketed as for work with Themeforest, and it’s not time to talk about its compatibility, but we will gladly listen to all your suggestions.

The main direction of the development is simplifying the work with the product for beginners and later creating the separate product for professionals, which will ideally ease the work and that means giving more money to those who works day in and day out without rest and trying to create quality product, despite big competition, eyes cloudy with sleep and the unfed dog.

We are acquainted with that and we see how we can improve this. So, subscribe to our newsletter in order to see how development is going on.

I think the issues and questions have been addressed fairly well. I’m going to lock this down so it doesn’t turn into a flame war :)
