According to the plugin, the update was successful, but when I checked the homepage, it was blank. The WP Dashboard then told me it was broken and Default theme had been activated.

Have you managed to fix this in the meantime Chung? I’ve had a similar problem updating themes manually. However, managed to get the site back up and running by deleting the WordPress Jetpack plugin from the server.

To do/try this you have to connect via FTP and delete the */plugins/jetpack folder or do it via the plugins menu in the WP admin panel.

Nothing guaranteed though and try at own risk. Make sure to back up your files before deleting if you decide to give it a shot.

Feature request – Can we make the API specific to the theme?

The problem is when building a client site and enabling this plugin, it gives them access to my entire Envato library. It’d be great if the Envato account holder could hide available themes instead of loading every one purchased.

@chainbreakr You are doing it wrong. The client should be entering his username and own Secret API key. They should not be using yours. That way they only have access to their purchases.

He’s probably buying his client themes with his own account, not setting on up for each(like you prob should be)

This is a really cumbersome approach and no reason I should have to create an Envato account for every WP project I do that uses a theme from here.

It clearly says in the license agreement: 2.You are licensed to use the Item to create one single End Product for yourself or for one client (a “single application”), and the End Product can be distributed for Free.

Secondly, it also makes it difficult having 50+ client accounts when a support request is made. This is MUCH better managed if I can keep all purchases under my account. The reality is that if I’m setting up/building a child theme based on a theme here for a client, it’s a client that already struggles enough to get through basic WP editing and is paying me to handle everything from updates to site management to sorting support issues.

Yes it makes it easier for you, not for your clients if you ever go MIA or they decide not to use you’re services.

I guess after the 100s of themes I’ve purchased for clients I’ve never needed to asked for support so its not really an issue for management.

Either way, you can use the API to just update 1, its not that difficult to code. (Also the dev behind this no longer works for envato)

You have a valid point for creating a new account for each client. It’s certainly the minority of other designers/developers doing such (at least that I’ve come across) but will start doing this.

My API abilities are weak, hence the reason I even mentioned it in here. :)

Does anyone know where to find directions for how to use the backup that is created by the envato toolkit.

I tried extracting it into my public_html folder, and now my site is just a blank white page. The back end still works fine. I have no idea how to fix this.

Thanks

Hi everyone!

Tell me guys and girls, how can I limit visibility and access to only one theme in Envato WordPress Toolkit? Now after configuration this plugin with my API key on sample wordpress site, I see all of my purchased theme, but I want to see only one, which I choose or specify somewhere?

How can I do this?

Sorry for my english, I hope you understand me. p.s. Merry Christmas and greetings from Poland!
