As ThemeForest has literally turned into a power-house marketplace in this last year, more and more designers are making template designing their full-time jobs. With this surge in popularity, ThemeForest is going through some changes. Beginning tomorrow, we’ll be hosting a monthly community chat to discuss these changes/enhancements/etc.
This is your chance to sound off on any complaints, ideas for improvements, irritations; and at the very least, you’ll have a chance to chat with your forum buddies on a more personal level.
I assure you that all voices will be considered and passed on to the Envato directors for review. The first chat will begin tomorrow, September 23rd at 5:00 (US Central Time). Please refer here to determine the correct time in your city.
At 5:00 PM (US Central Time), join the chat!

Do you have to pay taxes on earnings you make online?
I’ll make this short and sweet: YES! If you live in the United States, you owe taxes on any money you make, whether it be online, offline, or in some alternate universe that the IRS has an ability to track (and they will be able to track it, I promise).
Ensuring that all your files are safe and secure is a must for any web designer. This article assesses a variety of different online services that have proven to be the most affordable and popular over the years.
First, Envato released their beta version of the API, aptly named Edge. Now, we have a stable and fantastic API to work with that is super powerful and super simple. The latest version (at the time of writing) is release v1. In part one of this two part series, we will look at how to access every single public set from the Envato API and learn how to display it with php.
In this tutorial, we’ll be using JQuery to take a horizontally scrolling website and add a parallax scrolling background effect reminiscent of old-school 2D platform games like Sonic the Hedgehog.
For those of you who haven’t yet checked it out in the newsletter or forums, we’ve leaked a couple of screenshots of the redesigned forums – check out the screenshots below!
As you all know, the Envato marketplaces are going through an extensive redesign which we’ll be launching by the end of this month.
Besides giving the sites a bit of a facelift, we’ve done our best to take on board as much of your feedback as possible, and added many new features in order to make the marketplaces even better!
I wanted to give everyone a ‘sneak peek’ of what you can expect, so here’s a couple of screenshots based on our new and improved Forums.
We hope you like them, and we wanted to say a special ‘thank you’ to everyone who’s supported us and given us great feedback over the years!
We’re all working hard to add the finishing touches, but you can expect the grand unveiling by the end of the month. Stay tuned!
