    I only buy WP from Theme Forest and Woo Themes. All themes from these two sites look very professional.

    Themeforest and Code Canyon suck, and the both of you PAID hacks know it! Their policy CLEARLY states that developers are NOT required to provide support and are NOT required to even respond to requests for support.

    I was looking for themes recently, and a Google search returned a Themeforest link for a theme, and I clicked on it, not realizing I would end up in the Themeforest black hole. And wouldn’t you know it: some poor sap who had bought a theme from some wanna-be developer poser, was literally begging for assistance for a major problem he was experiencing with the piece of crap theme he bought, and the clown who glued the thing together didn’t even reply to him! The dude had left at least 5 requests for assistance over a 7-day period–with NO replyyyyyyy.

    Stay AWAY from anything dealing with Themeforest. That includes Code Canyon too. If you buy from them, you WILL regret it.

  • I have often noticed that when you generate huge commission above 40 $ aprox, they often void your sell with some reason like reversal or product or fake sale generation notice because of system error. So there arises some doubts some time.
