SecondLine saidReview team had been busy with recent security updates related to prettyPhoto XSS issue.
No disrespect/anger whatsoever, but I see some kind of irregularities in the reviewing process..
On June 27 – 16 items were reviewed Between June 28th and July 1st, 20 items were reviewed.Looks like it dropped significantly or am I totally missing something here? What’s Envato’s “optimal” release rate for WP themes for instance? 5-10 items per day or way less?
Ivor posted this, and I agree with him. Please be patient. Vulerabilities like these affect hundreds if not thousands of files. The queue is probably filllllleeeeed with updates regarding this and other products, and the review team must go through each to ensure the issue is fixed and no other quality or code issues are there.
Also, I will please ask you to keep things centralized in the original thread regarding this issue, so staff can keep their eyes on the entire conversation and give updates when needed.
Cheers guys. I’m locking this one down!
This is bothering me so intensely I literally want to go out and hit a face with a book!
How do you set the Business Category title in this image to say Web Designer / Web Developer.
I seen a few authors from the marketplaces have Facebook pages and they’ve managed to set this, but I’ve searched high and low for the Web Designer / Web Developer category and I can’t find it!
Can anyone give me a hand?
So, taking all factors into consideration, we’ve decided to:
- Keep the new screenshot lightbox
- Make the main image link to screenshots by default unless there is a live preview – in which case it will go to the live preview (or do nothing if no screenshots or live preview)
- Add an overlay on hover on the main image which provides a cue to users to show that a) the main image is clickable and b) what will happen when they click
I must know what beers your drink and where you guys live! This is awesome news and it’s a great, great UX idea!
And don’t thank us! Thank you for listening to us!!!!
I don’t usually leave replies to these types of threads, but I’m gonna make an exception, because I really think you’re trying something different, and I love how it feels!
First, my opinion is as an author, not a moderator, not a reviewer, or a member of the Envato Staff. My opinion on this Theme does not guarantee it will be approved. It’s just my experience as an author.
- Use a bigger font for text
- No, really, use a bigger font for paragraphs, they look really small.
- Increase visibility for quotes, Status Post headings. The contrast between them, and the font-weight is making my eyes hurt. Try a bolder font for the “This is a status post format
- Increase animation speed, 250ms , 350ms max. At the moment it looks slow
- Increase font size on the latest tweets, also, a darker color or maybe an extra font-weight to increase contrast and visibility
- The social icons need some space between them, maybe the icons a bit smaller
- The footer is sooooo thin you can barely see it
- The menu at the top lags when it opens, have you optimized your CSS / JS ?
Also, this is strictly my opinion, but adding a menu between the top logo decoration and the all posts button, using the serif font, centered nicely would look awesome! At the moment, your usage of white space is actually beautiful, but at the top there is a tone of wasted space and an extra action needed for desktops and laptops, clicking the hamburger. Replace the hamburger on desktops and laptops with a default menu, right under the decoration of the logo. Would look gorgeous!
My 2 cents!
Good luck with it, it’s actually real pretty!
I’m definitely sure I’ve seen somewhere in the forums or on Tuts+ a link to a great tutorial explaining how to convert a PSD to a HTML. If someone can help me with a link, I don’t find the tutorial anymore. Other links to good tutorials on this topic will be much appreciated too
The live preview green hover would still make users want to click the main image, for the simple purpose that the system has worked like this for the past 6 years. It’s simpler to just leave it as it was.
Meanwhile, the poll @greenline created is speaking volumes.
Even if so few people have voted, 91% still want the old system back.
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.
@Chris, with all due respect, here’s my question for you, and it’s not intended to offend you or anyone from the staff or devs, because I truly love you guys and I love what this community stands for.
If all range of authors, including a level 12 author, and all range of buyers including 500 + item buyers, request respectfully that you just add the anchor to the live preview back to the main image, why are you telling us there are other options on the table?
We, the community, want the old functionality back, not with a lightbox on the image, not without a link on the image, just click the image, and it takes you to the live preview. We don’t want other options on the image.
Edit all the buttons under the image, add the lightbox there, we don’t mind, just leave the image and the live preview buttons as they were.
We’ve been asking and waiting for this to be resolved for more than 10 days now, and each day we get a short answer, and then no one else replies. Some of us make a living off the marketplaces, and we want sales to stay constant. How can that happen when changes like these are done without polls, without proper buyer notifications, and completely against any user interface online.
We love Envato, we want Envato to grow, but for Envato to grow it MUST listen and apply the requests of the community and it absolutely must abide by the standards that everyone know! The marketplaces are not a website from CSS Awwwards, and having a crazy website with a completely different UI/UX from the entire web will not help authors, buyers, or sales. It will do the exact opposite!
Last but not least, when a community of 5.000.000 + strong members gets a new feature without at least beta testing it and using polls on at least 20% of it, I consider it to be a catastrophic decision. Things like this are dealbreakers for buyers, which in turn, hurt our sales. That saying if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, should be the bible of Envato when it comes to new features being developed that completely change the functionality of features that brought Envato to this size in the first place.
So, our / my question is tell us, in how many ways must we beg / ask / request / tell / shout / scream / that we need the old functionality brought back, and does it seriously have to take 10+ days to add a live preview link to an image?
