i’m talking about themes and plugins including their d@mn custom scripts in all wordpress admin pages.

95% of item support request i’m forced to answer each day falls into this category and i just grew sick of explaining buyers the same thing over and over again.

i don’t care about free or external stuff but there are 4 digits sales plugins/themes sold here which have no problems breaking other people work.

such behavior should never be tolerated on envato marketplaces

rant end.

Well Fabio, I’m with you. Many themes/plugins have been soft disabled to fix bugs or incompatibilties. If you’re sure that in any theme/plugin something has been developed without taking care of the standards and the good practices you should contact support and explain the issue.

Most of the times these issues are caused by a wrong inclusion of the js files, without using the right functions to register/deregister the scripts. For sure new WP themes must adhere to these standards otherwise they get rejected, but can be that old themes (4digits) haven’t been updated to match the new requirements.

Cheers.

Additionally, I’m not a guru like you, but at least I try to do my best to deliver working products and to respect the standards and everybody here should think in this way.

Then, I’m testing some WORLD famous plugins in these days and I’m wondering if they’ve been developed at least with the debug mode set to true… it’s incredible the number of warnings I get in each admin screen… I had to turn it to false because it was impossible to work in that way.

thx Nicola, i didn’t know it was a requirement now

it’s just so frustrating when a buyer contacts you or leave angry “it doesn’t work” comment in your item page just because somebody else didn’t follow some basic rules

countless hours spent in giving support and, still, you may get a bad rating because one can’t fix other people mistakes.

Well, it’s surprising that it wasn’t a requirement before… I mean, without making anything complex, it’s enough to load jquery without registering it properly and deregistering the one loaded by default to break any plugin…

why was this moved here ? wp plugins are sold on CC so the argument is not related to TF only and since when discussions involving review policies belongs to site feedback ?

also, moving a thread from all marketplaces to a barely read forum without giving a motivation sounds quite harsh.

Fabio, the most effective thing you can do is to report to support the files that you think need specific fixes.

As I said in these days reviewers check a lot better for compatibility issues and best practices the themes that go on sale, so the risk of themes that break plugins is close to 0.

Of course old themes may still have some problems, but we can’t pretend the reviewers to back check all the themes on sale.

Help them reporting the ones that need to be updated, I’m sure authors will be happy to upgrade their work for better ;)
