a quick glance at the api shows there is no way to get all purchases from a user, the only purchase methods are verify a purchase and download a purchase, Envato would need to expand the API before we can do something like this (I have been contemplating something similar as I have a lot of purchases I wanted to track).

Limit Login Attempts does this, you can set it by time, by IP and by cookie, it also lists the attempts that they have blocked, on my personal site it has blocked 159 attempts and the most common username attempts were:

admin

wpadmin

root

administrator

The plugin hasn’t been updated in ages but still works fine (running on 4.2.2), it was installed by my webhost and by all looks it have saved my site a few times.

It’s not as clear as that, you can get a refund from Paypal for any goods, there are 2 options:

1) Tell Paypal your account was hacked and they will refund any payments made from your account

2) Tell your credit card provider that your card was stolen and they will initiate a chargeback for the transactions.

1 isn’t that common as Paypal will check the logs to see which IP etc did the transaction

2 is the most common as the card company go above Paypal and Paypal can’t do anything about it so they just remove the money from the accounts affected.

Unfortunately there are people out there who will order items, claim their card was stolen and then get their cash back, it’s common on eBay for large purchases (phones etc). There is nothing anyone can do about it, fraudsters will keep getting away with it so don’t worry about a reversal, it’s a part of selling online unfortunately.

No you can create a coming soon with dreamweaver and WP

1) create the coming soon page on index.html

2) Create the WP site as normal and access as domain.com/index.php

It will depend on your host if this works but I have used it numerous times to build a coming soon site

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.
