We have been purchasing themes from Envato Market for some years up to date. We never had an issue until now, that we see that premium plugins as Slider Revolution and Bakery, which are included in specific themes, are not being updated on time.
We had some security breachs because of this and we are almost sure that Rev Slider is the cause because that plugin is a mess in terms of security. My concern is that devs won’t even send you the latest version of those plugins or make a regular ETA update! I know there is an extended support cost for dealing with technical issues, but what about SECURITY issues? If we purchase a theme, we expect the dev keeps it updated, specially with the premium plugins, which as far as I understand: that is developer’s responsability.
Envato should say after purchase: “if your theme doesn’t get the updates and that brings security problems, that is not our problem, be warned!”
I hope Envato takes this seriously and impose more strict policies to devs in order to keep their themes updated. Thanks in advance.
