I voiced my oppinion in a seperate thread. I’m very unsatisfied with the new feature. It’s completely senseless. I am a 4 year member with 100+ purchases on Envato over time.

As a customer I believe getting to the Live-preview is 100x as important as to go and see the screenshots. Perhaps on your other markets it would make more sense to link to screenshots (graphicriver), but for themes it’s very important that I can go test out the preview, see if there are issues, what functionality the theme has etc. Stuff that I can’t do in a screenshotgallery.

Anyways. Now is see the preview image is completely unclickable. Your “Share” buttons are not 100% aligned. There is either 1-2px space missing in the bottom border or top border depending if viewed from Chrome/firefox.

I don’t see the point of the share buttons taking up 1/3 of the space under the preview image. I understand ‘promoting envato’ and all. But I believe are better ways the implement some social sharing tools than right in the center of the page. Statistically, how often do these even get used? 1 in a 1000 visitors? Other than the author and friends of the author?

Anyways, would like to see the Live-preview link getting back in the preview image as before. I think this is of relevant importance for the THEMEforest market.

Without customers, any marketplace in the planet would be totally useless.
Fellow Envato Staff, please listen to your customers.

LIVE PREVIEW hovers are working on any place, other than your own portfolio pages. When you hover one of your items on your own portfolio page, you will not see it ; but if you hover any item thumbnail on category pages you will see this functionality.

I don’t know if this difference was built on purpose but it would be better to be consistent.

Just letting you know fellow author friends; extended sales are popular on HTML Admin Templates ;)
I dont think so, why should I buy extended license if Im using it for one domain? I agree tht thr are higher chances for admin templates but thr should be few not much

Hi friends, I agree that I made a mistake by using the word “popular”, but as you said chances are higher by their nature. :)

Hi everyone, we’re reviewing the data and reconsidering all the various options on the table as well as all the feedback we’ve received here and we’ll come back to you soon with a decision about next steps. Watch this space. Chris.

Hi Chris, thanks for all your responses, I really appreciate it.

With all my respect, what is the purpose of leaving the 590×300 image blank?
It would be impossible to get more conversions and “clicks” unless the 590×300 previewImage linked directly to the DEMOs.

And one more very important aspect of this..:
Now many of our customers are forced to scroll down, to see the button which launches the LIVE DEMO. Because at least 50% of the customers have monitors with low resolutions, so when they open an item, what they see first is only a part of the previewImage. This is what they see “aboveTheFold” when they land on an item’s page by default. And that’s also one of the reasons that previewImage MUST BE CLICKABLE, because otherwise we are FORCING them to scroll down to see the LIVE PREVIEW button.

One easy click is always better when it comes to userExperience, than scrolling down and searching for a button.

People ask me more often about things they are obviously in the demo. Do they not find it anymore?

Same here.

I think there is some sort of issue actually with the systems (though I’ve not seen an official announcement).

Developers said earlier today that there was an issue with the caching system (related to preview image linking to screenshots). In the last 15 minutes I couldn’t access Envato marketplace from my internet connection but also from other (phone) data different connections. I’ve also seen some threads in the forums related to people complaining about errors with the checkout process in the last hour.

I would say…let’s be patient :)

+1 , we’ve seen similar situations before (except the screenshots ;) )
