erwin_schro saidI never saw ads this weeks , Yes Maybe
Agree. it seems like a new marketplace in town with only couple of potential buyers looking around. I don’t see any Joomla templates ads from Envato anywhere. (inform me if there is please…) so what the most part of 30-50% fee is for if not for advertising our items in CMS category?
I am not glad when i look to any items of joomla or drupal themes , It makes me sad when i see a designer release new theme on themeforest but he never got good feedback , I am sure and i guarantee you , If you release new theme on this sections , You NEVER get good sales or nice feedback . 4 trending items on the 5 last page of CMS themes
Not matter how was your quality , Do you think in 2 last page , There should not be 2 good themes to get more than 20 sales? It destroyed authors volition.
It goes worse and worse , It is not hard to predict future , Just look at average popular theme sales , They are alike PSD themes.
I am not here to advertisement my products , Because me and maybe most of joomla developers can migrate to any other systems like HTML or WP , But most of them are really relax with joomla designing , And we want to live it up .
I am sure joomla or drupal buyers are not decrease , Of course i can remember my old themes that even though they was really weak than of my new products , But they sold more than , CMS buyers are not decrease and theme design and code quality are the best now . But anyone tell me what going on the themeforest?
Of course maybe themeforest themes have not good sells this days ( Your know why ! ) but cms themes almost died from 4-5 month ago.
But why? I can guess easily , Themeforest advertises Wordpress themes and HTML template more and more , They are almost everywhere . They forgot others maybe
Maybe it’s time to make alive CMS themes again , But not from us , It’s Envato time.Envato Most Wanted not help any more.
I am waiting for any answer of envato staff .
Thanks all @authors i am totally agree with :
Designing well is very hard. Coding well is very hard.
the hardest one is the one that you can’t do
All of us know design , we know coding, if it was not we don’t make themes , we can make difference between themes .So when we see a theme , We can analyze that .But i think different between coder and designer not related to heart
It is depends on your personality and your guard of course Most of us have powerful guard so remember your last time you open PS .
...but every attempt to get some design done by a coder lead to funny moments.
I learn everything on web with struggle , So i don’t know why i don’t like to struggle with PS . sometime my brain guard told me , No! Don’t try more ,It is waste of time but i can feel last night seconds that i waste 4 hours of my time to create select box with child icons that have no export
I love designing more than coding but the hardest work for me is use my art sense , I can imagine that , All of us can . But i can’t draw it on paper .
The most wrong things i read in topic :
I just want to ask a question who says coding is easy. If you get Avada design, do you think you can make it Top 1 theme as it is now?
We don’t like to have somethings like example But do you think that everything that sold a lot it is great? , What is sale reasons? I think just be in good time and good position and of course good ADS . I don’t deny overall design and coding of this theme ,But think to sale THE MOST SELLER phone , a plastic border with unrelated color can sold million times if “it was accepted by older overheated loyal”
It was my question that why most of us searching for good designer to design psd themes and it was my problem always
I am really easy with code worlds , If anyone told me you should try to learn working with new cms , new programming language and creating themes with new platform that i never experienced that i will touch it But i never like to open my photoshop I think most of us have this problem or maybe exactly opposite.
What is your comment , This is coders problem that they never can touch art or maybe they runaway ? What is your suggestion to have both ? This is success way , I think!
