I’m talking about the upload process. Why do we have to upload a whole separate ZIP with a “live preview” if ThemeForest redirects to our own domain anyway?

This is for some point in the future when/if Theme Forest hosts the live preview files.

I would imagine they would do that if it’s possible. :-)

Ugh. Sorry for the rant, but here it goes. What’s the use of advertising “HTML obfuscation and encryption and yada yada yada” if you don’t even have it?

And it’s such a pain to rename the stupid file names to 1.html, 2.html and then all the freakin’ links inside the pages that direct to another page in the theme.

On top of that, they probably will never implement the self-hosted themes anyway.

/rant

Much love,

Phoenix :)

I’ve seen some people protecting their previews with a right click javascript kinda thing. Some of them are very useful. I hope someday someone comes up with a code protection system type thing :)

Can’t wait to see all these thousands of files being hosted by TF. Good luck TF!

So do we still need to change the pages to 1.html, 2.html, etc?

For the .zip live preview? Did you read that you were supposed to do that somewhere? I wouldn’t worry about it until TF starts doing something with them.

Directly from the instructions for site templates:

Your live preview template is a working HTML /CSS/JS example of the file. It should be a ZIP file containing:

All files necessary to preview the template including images, javascript and HTML . HTML files should be named in order that you wish them presented – E.g. 1.html, 2.html, 3.html etc.
