The new pop out modal window for tags is far less usable than a list. it seems that changes are made just to look different rather than any actual usability improvements.
It is very doubtful that any usability study is done with new search other than “it looks cool”. Envato was suppose to make website responsive and this here is a huge step backwards, since any popup to select anything will look bad on small screen. The only way to make search on small screens is to have it as off-canvas panel and not to use popups anywhere.
@StephenCronin: This information is not entirely accurate.
Problem with add_query_arg() function is only in one case, if you use this function without setting the URL. If the URL in this function is not set, it will use URL from $_SERVER global and that is potentially what is dangerous. If the function sets URL on it’s own, than there is no problem. I use this function in some of my plugins, and in all cases I provide URL to this function (third argument) so it is not getting URL from $_SERVER global and it is not vulnerable.
Example from my plugin:
$url = add_query_arg('w', $week->week, get_year_link($week->year));
This is safe way, since the third argument is properly generated and safe URL. If I were to have:
$url = add_query_arg('w', $week->week);
That would be vulnerable use of this function.
So, if you start disabling plugins that use this function without deeper understanding how the function is used, you will create chaos among authors and buyers, and if you disable plugin that should not be disabled it would be very bad thing. My suggestion is that if you contact authors of the plugins you suspect have a problem, and discuss this first and leave some time to the authors to fix this.
All current top selling slider plugins on CodeCanyon are bloated and over complicated. I am currently building new theme framework and themes around it, and I wanted to add slider as integral part of the framework. But, after some research I decided not to use any of the existing plugins, but to choose a basic jQuery slider plugin that is mobile/touch oriented, lightweight and easy to configure and than to add basic control to add slider control into framework. I decided to use Swiper slider and end result is looking and working great. Yes, there are no advanced animations and parallax effects, no complex slide builder, but for majority of users normal slider that is fast, responsive and easy to use is better solution.
I like it. Admin is very user friendly, but it would need some improvement: select few images to make the new gallery, more intuitive add new folder/gallery. Even without that, it is very easy to use. As for the presentation, both layouts look good, clean and work great on all devices.
If I was reviewer, I would approve it, this looks better than many existing Gallery plugins on CodeCanyon.
Hi everyone! I am a beginner author and 4 days ago I uploaded my first item and it’s still “Queued for Review” so how long does it take to Envato Market approve my design? Is that 4 days normal to wait or something is wrong? What should I do?
I am CodeCanyon author for more than 2 years now, and some of my items were approved 2-3 hours after I have submitted them, but some items took more than 5 days. There is no way to predict this, and it depends on day you submitted the item (very few items are reviewed over the weekend), number of items waiting to be reviewed, complexity of the item, reviewer…
Just be patient, all items eventually get reviewed, not all get approved.
It is not responsive, it looks generic, and there is nothing to stand out considering that there are too many menu plugins already on CodeCanyon.
If the code is no longer valid, than the purchase is no longer valid and it could be refunded or it could be disabled due to fraud. My advice is not to send anything to that user, and you can ask Envato for more details about the reasons why the code is invalid.
Whenever Internal error happens, server should log the reason for that in the error log. You need to check server error logs to find out what is causing that. If there are no errors in the log, it means that server is not configured properly and it is not logging such critical errors, and it should be.
