I have used the Renergy theme, for my website, which I donwloaded from Envato ELements.
Sadly the Author, Ninetheme has removed his item from Envato Elements https://themeforest.net/user/ninetheme
I assume this author is quite straightforward and client-friendly, so that he does not lure people into downloading his theme on Elements, and forcing them afterwards to pay 76$ to receive updates.
I am now trapped, as I am using the theme, but I do not want to be tricked into paying half the yearly Envato Elements fee, just to receive theme updates to get my site to stay secure.
I would not have used this theme, when I knew beforehand that I had to pay 76$
It is this R-Energy Theme : https://themeforest.net/item/renergy-solar-and-renewable-energy-wordpress-theme/25465601
I kindly asked the Ninetheme author to send me a link with the update… I think this is fair-play after all, as he first gets a small Elements-fee, but he can’t corner the Elements-downloaders into this more expensive fee.
Do you have any suggestions how I can deal with this ?
