I used a few themes and many plugins from Elements, but found that a lot of the stuff that is also listed in Theme-forest is not updated with the latest versions
Example here is a theme https://themeforest.net/item/precise-a-modern-minimalistic-shop-theme/20271127
This theme is updated to work with the latest version of WordPress
This same theme is listed in Elements and is updated until Wordpress version 4.8
I am paying a yearly fee of $557 Australian and would expect that i can download the same updated versions.
It will make the subscription kind of useless If i you can not get the updated version and need to purchase an additional license to get updates.
Look forward to your feedback Envato
