Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you know that the item was re-enabled and we’ve got a proper response now.

@Envato : I believe that when things like this occurs, the proper/best way is to first contact the author before disabling an item that was approved ( and has a lot of updates approved ). As you know, we are humans and we can interact with each other :) in order to minimize the impact on both sales and frustration level.

Best regards, Stefan

Hi guys, What’s hapening here ?? Our theme Kallyas for wordpress that was released earlier this year was just soft disabled. The email we have received states that the theme is not compatible with the new requirements ??

@envato Guys, could you please clarify as we’re expecting this action after 6 months or so. Also, please send email to authors before disabling an item and give a week at least to correct the things. Isn’t that possible?

Hey envato.

It’s time to update your guidelines. A lot of answers were given on this thread. Do you want us to go over all these pages to figure out what can we and what we cannot do? For example: how about theme specific widget? Can we put within theme? I almost sure you already answered that question, but i don’t have time to go over 39 pages. So, it’s time to clean up this mess.

Hi guys, First of all i want….

From my understanding on the subject, I believe that the purpose of these changes aren’t to make it so when a user change to a different theme (even another one of yours) to still keep everything looking/working as it was. As that would make zero sense and be completely impractical/impossible to do. The idea is that when they change themes, their website content doesn’t instantly look broken.

I.e User uses Theme A and in their posts inserts multiple Theme A shortcodes, when the user changes to Theme B, the posts with shortcodes would instantly have “[shortcode xxx]” code visitible and look broken, but now because they have a plugin that handles the shortcodes activated, the shortcode still gets executed and doesn’t look completely broken. It is then up the user to update the shortcodes to the shortcodes of their new theme.

I don’t see [brackets] being a valid reason for such big change. First of all, the themes that will share the same plugin, probably will have the execution of the unused shortcodes disabled and still show brackets. Second, because when user switches a theme, he will not leave the previous plugin activated anyway, and after deactivation, we have our precious brackets back.

Hey, what was the reason for the soft-disable? We’re curious.

Hi,

One of our clients spotted some missing alt tags on several page builder elements and probably contacted envato about this. Envato re-enabled our theme and we should soon release a new update that will resolve this problem.

Best regards, Stefan
