I guess that I am sort of wanting to vent but also warn others. I have now had three plugins that I bought on Envato / CodeCanyon disappear from the site. In each case, I reviewed the plugin’s features, asked any needed pre-sales questions, and read the reviews. All seemed fine. I then bought the plugin, which includes support, and started using each one on a client site.
I am sick of this happening. It’s a lousy feeling when you start using a plugin and your users become accustomed to its functionality only to find it has completely vanished when you need support or go looking for an update. I’m not really sure what the hell is going on over there or if the problem is specific to plugins related to Gravity Forms, but I would recommend that anyone reading this steer clear of that place. It’s a real shame since each of the three plugins I bought there were pretty darn good before Envato / plugin authors turned into the Phantom of the Opera. Not cool. Beware!
