^ Eight days ago they said that will bring those buttons back but will take some time because of “envato birthday and a lot of new stuff shipping”. Please allow me to be a bit sarcastic, bringing those buttons back is not like building space ships and shouldn’t take that long!

We all know, exposure and visibility are everything! Right now seems that only Envato staff doesn’t know it. I will repeat what a fellow author said in a previous post: one-click is better that two-clicks and visible is better that hidden.

@justinfrench is it too hard to put categories links back and make a test so we can see if our sales get better? Is to too hard to hear from us and take our comments into account?
Sorry if I wasn’t clear in previous replies, but yes, we will (at least for now) chang it back to visible links instead of a drop-down. I don’t know exactly when, but soon!

Hi Justin,

I’m curious if you guys are gonna bring those buttons back or decided to leave it as it is.

Thanks,

Bogdan

I just wanted to add to the “home page paranoia” that since the begining of August sales are very good a lot better then in July and I haven’t released anything new….
Maybe is just paranoia or maybe you are one of those who gets benefits from the new huge search box. I don’t know which are the words most often used by buyers but if you type in “Multi-purpose responsive theme” or “Responsive theme” your last theme appears on the first page in the search results. Maybe this is why you have good sales compared to last month.
I also have really good sales this week.. Maybe you just have to configure your description page better? With keywords, tags, etc..

+1 I already started to do that yesterday. Now will see how it goes :)

Hi Justin,

Will be amazing if you could also move the entire section (new items) above the featured section. Not sure if you guys are willing to do that, at least think about it, please :)

Bogdan

So if pre-price increase I bought 5 items per month at $20 each = $100, at new pricing I’ll just buy 4 items per month at $25 each = $100, just one less author gets paid. I’m a top buyer here, I won’t spend more overall just because of arbitrary price hikes, I’ll just buy FEWER Items, to stay within fixed monthly budget.

To be honest I don’t get it, I thought that people buy themes according to their needs. For example if someone needs to develop 5 websites in a month for his clients then he will normally buy 5 themes. And, if now you pay 4 dollars extra, then will be 20 dollars a month for 5 themes, doesn’t seem a fortune if we keep in mind all advantages. Let’s be honest, for a freelancer/small agency is way more profitable to buy a template than to develop a website from scratch.

So, if you have 5 clients in a month and need 5 themes why to buy only 4? Is more profitable for you to develop from scrath the 5th website? Isn’t better to pay 3-4 dollars extra? With this small price increases authors will be motivated and will keep produce awesome products.

Don’t get me wrong, I totally understand your point of view, we are all unhappy when we have to spend more money for a product. But I also think that we, TF authors, need to be able make a decent life by selling our items here. For example in the HTML category, I think prices have remained the same over the last 3-4 years.

I think that huge search box is a brilliant idea, but only if works properly. Right now people complains because sales dropped and you (envato) claims that:


We’ve carefully reviewed the analytics data and things are looking really good overall. In particular, we’ve seen an increase in the number of searches started from the home page — there’s a strong link between searches and conversions, so this is a great development for both buyers and authors.

So, as @dedalx said in a previous post, I think is easy to understand that only a small group of authors will benefit from this change.

I shouldn’t complain, to be honest my sales haven’t been affected so far, but still, I don’t want trafic to rely mainly on that search engine as long is not giving equal chances to everyone. As far as I know people are complaining for ages here on forums regarding search engine.


One of the biggest areas of concern raised here is that we’ve hidden the new item category links behind a drop-down box (as well as pushing that entire section further down the page). Overall, we’ve seen no change in the number of “new items” being clicked on from the home page. However, we don’t have any measurement in place to understand if the drop-down box changed behaviour, so we’ll look at some new designs for that section and get the missing metrics in place.

Also I don’t understand why it’s not possible to make those small changes that people have suggested: to place “new items” section above the “featured” section and to replace that “drop-down box” with “category links”. This way you will show people that you care…

Regards,

Bogdan
