I have touch enabled Lenovo Yoga Pro 2, and Windows 8.1 is the best choice considering use of touch interface with mouse and keyboard all in the same time. So far Ubuntu fails far behind Windows in term of touch use.
My submission for Best Marketing Newsletter Plugin or Code
WordPress plugin – Smart AJAX Subscribe Integration Addon: http://codecanyon.net/item/smart-ajax-subscribe-integration-addon/7422887
Having bought a script a few days ago and then had an issue, I went seeking support to find that the author is no longer providing support.
Why is the item still for sale if this is the case? At the VERY least it should be made abundantly clear in the product description (i.e. BIG print or a large warning button) that this is the case so buyers are aware before parting with their cash especially as CC won’t give refundsI am now stuck with a $12 script which doesn’t work – CC get their money, author gets his money and I lose out. Hardly the way to treat customers….
Authors are not required to provide support. For each item you have requirements (WordPress versions, or some other software versions) and you can decide based on that. But, support is not the same as making the item work, so each author must be responsible for fixing the item bugs. Envato needs to make the distinction between support and bugs fixing. Also, old items need to be re-reviewed from time to time to make sure it is all OK with them.
I have noticed this too, and some notifications about comments I never received via email (most are OK), and it was not sent to spam.
Authors are talking about ratings for a long time, and it took 3-4 years for Envato to add reviews system, and who knows how long it will take to improve it and add some sort of control for reviews. I wouldn’t hold my breath, just take the reviews as they are. If you have good items, you will mostly get good reviews, don’t let one or two bad reviews discourage you, we all have at least few bad ratings for no good reason.
This can’t be done via API. There are Envato Wrapper PHP libraries that can do this, but they are parsing RSS feed or items pages directly to get the data API doesn’t return.
I had one reversal 3 weeks after the purchase. I think it can happen after a whole month. I have 1 or 2 reversals every month, and it is nothing unusal.
I always try to put as much as I can in documentation: system requirements, libraries need, basic description, information on all features, installation instructions, explanations for features. In case the plugin/library is for further development or has features that can be coded I include developers guide with documentation for functions, classes, examples.
Including only basic data is not enough, especially when your item is library that can be used for further development.
