no seriously, why?
i buy a car i expect it to work. i buy a bike i expect it to work. i buy a lamp i expect it to work etc. Why is that I have to blow away $32 on a template that doesn’t work!
Ask the author for support
Yeah that be great IF THE AUTHOR DID PROVIDE SUPPORT
so what now? Envato doesn’t provide support they say go to the author and the author doesn’t want to but Envato says since the author is only ignoring posts it doesn’t exactly mean its NOT WORKING !
What’s wrong with this picture?
Hmm, I think every template here works or it wouldn’t be get approved. But you are right, if the author doesn’t offer support on how to install his theme it’s a bad thing especially for the buyer. Maybe he doesn’t answer because of the holidays?
What do you mean by saying, that template doesn’t work? Which template have you bought? By the way – it’s Christmas time, so don’t expect any support in these days…
Envato cannot solve ALL problems because they for one did not develop the theme so therefore it would be easier for the Envato staff to redirect you to the author who has developed the theme and knows the bugs.
Also my advice is to calm down, it is christmas so the author may be off for a certain period of time which is expected you should expect from many authors in the community – they are human beings not robots.
There is no need to shout at the whole community, if you’re prepared to talk to us rather then shout maybe we can assist you with your problem.
it won’t get accepted if it doesn’t work
Well tis the season of holidays and festivities and the like so maybe he’s busy with family or something.
And I’m sure if you post the question here i’m sure we could help you out or at least try. That’s why we’re here!
It’d be more useful if you could provide more constructive insight as to what exactly your problem is rather than randomly ranting. Keep in mind there are a lot of authors on the forums here who help people all the time, and in this group is most likely not the one that’s ignoring you. If you’d like help from one of these great authors after the holidays here, I’d suggest improving your tone and be more specific.
I’m guessing since the site price is in the 30’s you bought a wordpress theme. Have you worked with this CMS before? Do you know how to install wordpress on your server properly so it works before uploading a custom theme?
yes its a wordpress templates. its the atlantica dark wp theme. several issues i am having:
some links are black which means they are “invisible” not sure how to change that and why it is that way.
a lot of the stuff i seen on the page (preview) doesn’t show up in the template even with the full range of “dummy content” imported.
pictures and screenshots are never included since it isnt allowed. You have to replace the placeholders yourself.
