I just skimmed through the blog post and one of the items on the list said to update a current template and post it in your description. I thought about asking this a while back but thought I would wait and let the site age a bit before asking. Can we updates themes with somewhat big changes and release it as a ver. 2 etc.? This has been done for quite some time on Flashden and has proven successful for many. People ask for requests to themes but I’m not going to make changes to a current template without being able to re-release it.
That’s what I did! I made the older version simple and added many advanced option on my second, which made more sales.
Well, I think if it’s significantly updated nothing can stop you.
Thanks for the comments and ne-design I had no idea that someone had already done it, very nice. Jeffrey if you would comment on this simply for clarification…thanks!
Yes guys, version 2’s are allowed but it needs to be enough of a change to consider it a completely different theme.
Look at it this way, it needs to be different enough that buyers of your first theme would want to buy the second one (this is not a rule, this is just an easier way to put it in perspective).
If you upload a version 2 that has nothing more than a different font color and a changed banner, that will probably get rejected. But lets say your first upload was static, and this new version contains jquery, new sub-pages, new layout options, etc.
I’ll let Jeffrey comment some more.
