Submission Tip: Don’t Use Short PHP Tags (TF)  

by posted in Submission Tips
Jun 27

Howdy talented authors! In this ongoing quest for more transparency, here I am, again, with more juicy tidbits about the reviewing process. More specifically, I’d like to address some issues that seem to be tripping up a lot of authors. In the interest of brevity, I won’t go too much into the issues themselves since they’re a single search away.

This time we look at short PHP tags.

This is more a language issue than a WordPress issue. Refrain from using PHP short tags in your code. Support for these isn’t universal, and it’s better to take the safe way and start using the longer, universally compatible long form.

Chime in at the comments if you have any questions and thanks for reading!

Nerd Radio—who used to be called RIARadio—are great guys that Envato recently partnered with. They’re all about improving the community through open discussion.

They recently spent a week at Flash and the City. They spent their time producing an amazing series of live podcasts, including interviews with Flash developers, Adobe evangelists, book writers, and the organizer of Flash in the City.

If you have any interest in Flash, this is something you need to check out! You can find all of the episodes here.

Happy listening!

This is the desktop of Rakita Marko (Pichwise), a VideoHive author. (Click the image above for a larger screenshot.) He has a nicely branded Windows desktop—a welcome change from all the Mac desktops and workspaces we seem to publish.

What I love most is that he uses his desktop to track the number of paws he receives from his sales on ThemeForest. That would keep him motivated!

Abraham Lincoln once said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” Do you apply that same principle to your computer? What regular computer maintenance do you do—hardware or software?

AudioJungle is very pleased to have launched a brand new category today called TRAX!

The difference between TRAX and the rest of the AudioJungle library is that TRAX is NOT royalty-free music which means that it cannot be used in any kind of project.
