Couple of things I have noticed (said about some earlier).

1) Photodune is tag based, but there is no tag list, so we can only do a search for tags, but all the other sites are category based. Would be nice to be able to get a list of tags.

2) If you pull the description from an item, it doesn’t include the image links the author has added (looks like removes html) so the description can be non-existant.

Would be nice to either include the image links, or even better, have a description field which is only used for the api / meta description tag. It will make it far easier to display information about a product.

Hey Guys!

does anyone know of a woo / opencart plugin which lets a customer get a quote for a product.

The product has lots of options e.g.color and extra “fittings”, the idea is they can go to the product and “build” the product, they are then given a quote for that “product”. It’s basically a product builder/

There are no fancy requirements of seeing how each part looks, an example site is http://bit.ly/1RuwRXA

I had a look at fancy product designer and it’s way too complex for my needs, and doesn’t include custom pricing for each “extra.

Any help would be appreciated

I just read ALL 13 pages of this thread, every single comment. And what I get from this is: this new API is a real PITA. :D

It seems it at the first glance but it depends on what you want to do, the api does what it says it does but it’s very limited in what we want it to do.

Is anyone able to get the categories from Photodune, every other site works fine, with PD I only get 2 categories both called misc… are the categories on PD called something else in the api?

PhotoDune isn’t a category based site – instead it’s all based on tags, which is kinda annoying as you definitely wouldn’t want to try and find a way of calling in every single tag for a site like PD!

You may be best using the search functionality of the new API, if that’s possible, but off the top of my head, I think that may be your best option…

Cheers, that explains it, doesn’t say nothing in the API about this (or a way to get the tags), are you aware of a way to get a list of tags?

Also, when you select categories from a site e.g. Themeforest, it spits out all the categories (as it should). it would be nice to only get top level categories.

Trying to get an image via the api but can’t get it too work, as it’s in a 3 layer part e.g.

previews > thumbnail_preview > small_url

My code is:
echo '<img src="',$json_data['matches'][$i]['small_url'],'" alt="',$json_data['matches'][$i]['name'],'" />';
but also tried:
echo '<img src="',$json_data['matches'][$i]['previews'][$i]['thumbnail_preview'][$i]['thumbnail_url'],'" alt="',$json_data['matches'][$i]['name'],'" />';

I am probably missing something simple, I am able to get the data out that’s in a first “layer” e.g. the ID, the Name etc just need to be able to get the image url.

Any pointers will be appreciated.

I have a couple of issues with this.

Could someone please clarify how or what Envato are going to do about it.

1. A buyer pays for an item which is 12 months old and purchases the additional support which basically gives them 12 months support…

Well I feel the money coming in does not cover the cost of supporting the item any more and I decide to remove the item and this user still has paid for the support…

What happens then, is the item not allowed to be removed?

Opt out of the support for the item… Envato are never going to be able to make it work in every scenario but it is a step in the right direction.

You will have to support them for the time left on their “contract” but you don’t have to provide any item updates, the support pack only gets them access to the support e.g. ask questions on that item.

@enabled that’s ging to be abused pretty hard.

1. Buy theme

2. Get support, get everything up and running.

3. Write a 1-star review with a refund request.

4. PROFIT!!!

yup, buyers will abuse it as they know it will be simple to get a refund, with the current system it’s far easier as Envato can’t / won’t be bullied into a refund like an author will.

Authors keep asking for a way to refund and it will never happen, there are too many hurdles that need to be jumped before a refund can be made, which an author would never be able to do.
