Just to be clear, you don’t HAVE to use this, do you?

I completely agree with the majority of concerns expressed by other authors, especially by Parallelus and sevenspark.
I wish you guys re-consider your decision to make it mandatory, at least not for a while. If I had a choice I would not implement this right now. We want to make sure that the benefits clearly outnumber the potential issues.
  • You DO NOT have to use the plugin or the library if you don’t wish to. Using them is NOT mandatory
  • The only thing that has become mandatory is to upload a “theme only” version of your theme when submitting a new theme to ThemeForest even though right now the field is marked optional:
    Click here to view full size
It is not mandatory for buyers to install the plugin/library but authors have no control over who uses the plugin so they can’t control how their theme is being updated.
A lot of authors include their own internal way of using the theme for update notifications, how would that work now with this plugin?
IMHO , you should give the authors the option to choose whether or not the “theme only” version of their theme will be uploaded.

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 ?

I have the same problem. How to solve it?

I read this thread and got confused with the whole mandatory thing. I found out the what was what after reading the succeeding pages.

As with the others I have a few issues regarding it when it comes to edits being wiped, etc… although I think this has potential.

Just to share I do theme updates this way:

  1. User see’s an admin notification that there is an update to the theme if they’re currently using it. I have an XML file online that contains the latest theme version and gets checked by the theme every 15 minutes.
  2. Buyers just re-download it again and install the new version. But since it’s a new version it gets installed in a different folder to prevent file overwriting. e.g. themename_v1.0 and themename_v1.1. All the previous theme configurations get carried over to the new installed version, and they can just switch to the old version if something goes wrong.

Oh and I encountered a fatal error when I tried to implement the library. The Envato_Protected_API class gets redefined and throws an error. The cause would be is that I had the Toolkit plugin installed and I also implemented the library. A fix would be editing line 12 of class-envato-protected-api.php to:

if (!class_exists('Envato_Protected_API')) include_once( 'class-envato-protected-api.php' );

EDIT : sorry got confused, I removed some stuff I said because I thought you’ll need to use both the plugin and library. lol. I just realized those are 2 different things.

I have that problem too. I’ve tried below:
  • theme.zip->theme directory (named like theme)->theme files
  • theme.zip->theme files
For both cases I got the error. What could be wrong?
