Hi All,

Later this week you’ll see a new optional attachment type for Wordpress Themes labeled WordPress Theme. The new attachment is intended for just the theme, so no doco, PSDs etc just the files required to install your theme.

So what’s this attachment for you might ask? Well the devs are currently working on a few updates to the Marketplace API and a WordPress plugin that will notify users via their WordPress dashboard when updates are available for their installed theme, users will also be able to 1 click update/install their themes directly from ThemeForest (they’ll just need their license key to authenticate the purchase).

For the new WordPress Theme only attachment all you need to do is ensure that your style.css is populated with theme name, author, version(version number being very important) e.g.

/*
Theme Name: Another Awesome Theme
Theme URI: http://themeforest.net/item/awesome/1
Author: envato
Version: 1.0
*/

more details can be found on codex.wordpress.org

We’ll keep you posted, but feel free to start uploading the Wordpress Theme only attachment once it goes live later this week.

This is really great news! Purchasers are really going to appreciate being notified of updates (and it’s one less thing for authors to worry about too)!
