Since release of bulk upload I was getting same bug report over and over again. Finally working with forum members realized that some Linux servers were using case sensitive file names I guess it was affecting 10%-20% of all installations. Finally it is fixed in Wallpaper Script version 1.2.3 which can be downloaded from script page. Thank you all forum users for pointing this and helping to fix.
Other big bug fix is UTF-8 category names and URL. Especially for Russian characters it was generating wrong category links which were resulting as 404 pages.

Theme business for free content management systems like wordpress, joomla, drupal, magento is another profitable business idea to look at. We looked at other success stories on themeforest and woothemes, this is another succeed internet business that earns more than 2 million $ per year.

Difficult part is to deal with client requests and address theme related problems while explaining other related issues and custom development needs.

This version of script fixes 2 bugs related to some hosting providers.
- Removed all short tags as it was reported some web hosts do not allow to switch it on by changing php.ini. So all php hort tags like <?= and <? replaced with <?php echo tags. This issue is pointed out thanks to Dudeist
- Bulk upload required ParseCsv.php helper to be loaded manually in some servers. Added loading this helper to script. Thanks to dn3 for solving this issue.
These 2 problems fixed in new version of script 1.2.1 which can be downloaded from wallpaper script page.
