Little white lie perhaps? Aren’t refunds given only for themes that do not perform as advertised? And in this case wouldn’t you have gotten a message from the reviewer or a soft-disable for your item? Sorry if I’m being naive here!

Hey boys and girls, have you seen this? http://versionpress.net/

I personally haven’t found a simple solution to WP version control until now, but from this project’s description I think this might be it!

Disclaimer: I have absolutely no connection with this project, I just thought it is cool and I would like to see it funded.

Girlscancode, your story is inspiring. However it’s one thing to design a nice website and it’s another to design for themeforest where only the best have chances, at least so they say.

Yes, I was talking about designing a website for ThemeForest. I have no skills in traditional art and yet my ThemeForest portfolio is appreciated :)

This prejudice kept me away from design matters longer that it should have. I begun to learn to code exactly because I thought I couldn’t do design because I can’t draw worth a damn. Now with 13 years of experience I can tell you for certain that you don’t have to be good at conventional arts to design a good website.

@ whomever “doesn’t like the speech”: I must admit that he doesn’t have the best presentation or delivery, but you have to look at the bigger picture. What he’s saying is, if you want to succeed it requires hard work. You have to be willing to work harder than the next guy. You have to be willing to sacrifice other things in order to reach your goal.

Of course, but personally I am a fan of “smart work” more than I am of “hard work”. For example: how much does it take you to respond to client emails? 5 hours per day? How much do you charge per hour on regular web design? $50? According to the “hard work” theory I would have to sleep 5 hours less to be able to respond to those client emails. According to the “smart work” theory I need to search for someone to answer those emails for me at $10 per hour. See my point?

I am not saying that sometimes hard work isn’t required, but in my experience smart work is proving to be more rewarding.

I don’t like the speech either. He’s right, you’re not going to die if you feel a little pain, but as far as sleep goes I actually want my health much more than I want my success.

Was planning Spain. Any recommendation were to Spain?

We’ve been to Mallorca, it’s beautiful! Try Sa Calobra and the Valldemossa Village

i mean if i could slightly modify template and submit here on themeforest,

If it was this easy a lot more people would become WP authors. I’m afraid that, if you do this, it won’t get accepted

I somehow never get good sales while I’m on the first page (graphic river or themeforest, doesn’t matter). But afterwards sales pick up! Longest I went was 3 days, first day my item was off the front page the sales started booming :))
