Author’s Guide On
LayerSlider Leaving Envato Market
This guide is for theme authors mostly focusing on licensing. If you haven’t done it already, read the general announcement here.
LayerSlider is leaving Envato. Your purchased licenses remain in full effect with their original terms. We continue to offer LayerSlider as an in-stock item. We have no plans to change what you’ve used to. The “new” license terms are based on Envato’s, plus the few conditions we already had. We don’t want to change how the bundled version of LayerSlider behaves or how it’s promoted in themes. The only change should be the place where you can purchase LayerSlider licenses. This is our goal.
But don’t just take our word for it. We’ve created a new Legal page, where all our legal documents can be found. We do encourage you to review those documents if you’re planning to purchase a new LayerSlider license.
Dead Links Ahead
LayerSlider will be removed from CodeCanyon, so its URL will result in dead links. You’ve probably used that URL multiple times. Maybe linked LayerSlider on your ThemeForest Item page or the demo site of your theme.
We advise to update those links with the following URL:
Marketing Resources & Outdated Information
We figured that if you update links, you might want to update any outdated information as well. We’ve seen many themes out there spelling and using the LayerSlider name incorrectly, or provide an outdated price point among other things. That’s why we’ve launched a new page dealing with how to display LayerSlider branding in your products. We’re also offering downloadable assets like banner or logo images, so you can easily use them without the need to replicate something similar.
Register Your Themes
This isn’t really related to leaving Envato, but it’s important. For quite some time now we’re requiring theme authors to register their themes on the following URL: kreaturamedia.com/in-stock/
While we cannot obligate you doing so, you absolutely should register your theme if you haven’t done it already. The reasons are described on the linked page. The main one is to whitelist your work in automatic DMCA takedown services. Since these services are operated by 3rd parties who aren’t familiar with any relation we have, this is unfortunately necessary to make sure your work is secured. We haven’t utilized such services in the past, but this is coming to a change due to the spreading of pirated copies.
