Hi Chris, and thanks once again for your message.

So, any item which has a LIVE PREVIEW DEMO will link 590×300 image to the LIVE PREVIEW DEMO, right?

When we will see this in action?

I still don’t understand why screenshots became priority over a live demo link.. screenshots are just complimentary to the live demo. The only case where screenshots should be priority is for PSD’s and graphics.. but why did it have to affect items like themes too, and in most cases theme authors aren’t even uploading screenshots. Envato should rather focus on creating specific functionality for the various types of items for better UX and to maximize conversions.

We only need the old functionality back, In My Humble Opinion :)

I 100% agree, but I’m assuming that since they haven’t reverted it back yet, they are wanting to explore other options. Instead of repeatedly stating the same thing over and over, I thought I’d offer up another idea that achieves a similar end result ;-)

Best,

Chris

Hi Chris, before you post, I’ve flagged my response. :)

Of course it would be great if the WHOLE 590×300 PREVIEW IMAGE will be at a MOUSE HOVER state when the cursor is over it.
Old Functionality Back with an additional fantastic make-up like we see on item thumbnails.

Sorry for misunderstanding :)

Wish you the best.

We are still having issues from time to time.

Mobile “luxury” comes with its security disadvantages. “Desktop” is still the number one.

Let’s poll :) http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=55951e62e4b003bdb765b58c

Anyone?

Hi friends ; I already used my vote whether I think we don’t need to vote for the obvious. :)

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.

And not just any customer, but one that obviously knows what he is talking about.

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.
