Many buyers expect wordpress themes, but buy HTML templates. This causes unhappy buyers and low ratings for authors. I think TF needs extra explanation field for HTML templates. I made one :P

Haha, a person who can read and spell wordpress should be able to figure out that the theme they are buying isn’t wordpress. :P If they knew what wordpress is, they would certainly look for the word “wordpress” when they’re buying I suppose. :D

All HTML templates should have a disclaimer pop up before viewing the demo if not the item page even saying ” I agree that I understand this is a HTML file and WILL NOT work on Wordpress should I decide to purchase it”.

This is stupid, although I am guilty of purchasing a plugin from CC thinking that it was for wordpress, I don’t think there is a need for this, people should read before they buy anything.
