@John, have you got a presentation regarding Envato’s mantra of “It’s in the pipeline” on your joining or should one of us introduce you to it?
Has this change in policy been announced somewhere?
It’s just last couple of days that outages are occurring frequently
Complete list of tags required for submitting a theme to WordPress directory can be found at http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/about/
Some of the errors, warnings etc. can be ignored because the Theme Check plugin is outdated and as well as some of rules don’t apply to themes which you are not going to upload to WordPress themes directory e.g. the tags in style.css.
Just sent you a message with features requests for OptionTree. As I couldn’t send you attachment using the contact form on your profile page so following is the screenshot regarding the 2nd feature request:
Right now it is possible to have mean heading in the left sidebar for the Slider Options or even have slider options just below the Slider Visibility option but it will be more logical if we could have the proposed feature i.e. to show/hide additional options based on a choice made.
If you can wait until version 2.0 I’ve added defaults in most of the option types. The new version is coming soon, I’ve been working on nothing but OT for some time now and everything is finally coming together. A stable version should be available in the WP directory within two weeks time. A release candidate is looking like early to mid next week. If you really need to get it working with the 1.0 branch I would look at the permissions of those files first to see if you can read and execute them. Is the manual import textarea adding the default values or are both import options not working?
Great news that OT is getting an update. Thank you
there should be a wordpress theme marketplace with elite authors ( even without elite badge ) but who care about their themes. not many themes, but high quality, and support. and who gets complaints gets banned from it. i would love that and i hate the amount of crappy themes they accept. i looked at one today and i did not believe my eyes what a piece of crap it was.
Why would Envato do so? I will give you a fine example of a theme by an Elite author which hits the weekly top sellers page every week and that theme, according to your opinion, is a slap on the face of quality standards and while none of your themes is hitting the weekly top sellers page (I admit that your themes are of highest quality from designing point of view).
So just beautiful looking themes don’t guarantee lots of sales. I believe there are many factors for a theme to sell well and some of them include usefulness, luck etc. Envato would prefer a crappy theme (just saying) selling like a hot cake than a beautiful theme not bringning any sales.
