It’s nice to see that Envato is providing tools to authors to make theme development easier and quicker but these tools/plugins need constant updates in order to work with latest versions of WordPress so sometimes author get into a locked down position which is not good. For example OptionTree hasn’t been upgraded to work with WordPress 3.3.1 and if you see the “Compatibility” section for OptionTree plugin then 50% of the people are having trouble installing it with WordPress 3.3.1.

I never saw the Compatibility section as accurate, for any plugin.

I’m developing a theme right now on OptionTree and WP 3 .3.1 with no issues at all. I suggest trying it for yourself. Furthermore, I saw no mentions of any compatibility issues in the corresponding forum here http://wordpress.org/tags/option-tree?forum_id=10

I’d think if there were real issues, people would’ve flooded that forum with complains already.

Finally! This is great!

I have few questions, though:

1. What about child themes? I plan to release variations of my themes (color styles) as child themes, but the automatic updates will only cover the parent theme. Do you plan to make it child theme friendly? Or am I forced to include separate styles into parent theme and just provide an option in theme options to change the stylesheet?

2. What about illegal use of files? Does the plugin check if the theme is already installed somewhere else?

I have been using OptionTree myself for last 1 year and never faced any compatibility issues but it surely hasn’t been officially tested with WordPress 3.3.1 so can scare new authors willing to use OptionTree.

I tried to update my theme and got this error:

Optional WordPress Theme Your ZIP must contain a single folder at the top level, which will correspond directly with your users' /theme/YOUR_THEME_NAME/ folder. No folder was found at the top level, only files.

The ZIP contains only one folder, with the theme in it.

Any tips ?

For end users, all that’s required to get started is an Envato Marketplace username & API key, and to have purchased one of the many WordPress themes found on ThemeForest.net.

You really have hopes that users are going to accomplish this task succesfully? Really? Users which upload whole .zip and wonder why stylesheet is missing?

3. To establish an Envato Marketplace API connection navigate to the `Envato Toolkit` page and insert your Marketplace username and secret API key in the designated input fields.

Nothing shows up, page is broken (WP 3.3.1)

This plugin and PHP library are a work in progress, so we are really glad to see people take them for a spin and report issues. Derek and I will look at these problems but it would really help us if with your reports the following points can also be included:

  • which theme on the marketplace did you have trouble with?
  • did you receive errors while testing the Plugin or the Library?
  • if using the library, please describe how you were doing it so we can replicate your scenario
  • if using the plugin, were you installing a new theme or upgrading an installed theme?
  • and obviously what errors you got

Thanks everyone
