HTML is the DOM (essentially). The difference is virtually all browsers parse JS, which may modify it, and search crawlers (historically) do not parse JS — so they wouldn’t see JS changes to the DOM. Some do now (Google) but not identically to the way a browser does because they’re not scanning visually.

Simple rule: don’t deliver content via AJAX if you want it SEO accessible.

I’d use picturefill instead.

Nice work @cac003! I see someone else drafted you while I was enjoying the weekend. If anybody wants to draft players I haven’t feel free. I’m more focused on web / interaction design so that’s primarily what I’m looking for, but talent is talent.

Still two invites left if more people are interested.

Manage expectations. If you haven’t built those features before, expect that it will be difficult to learn. It’s not easy to do everything yourself but not impossible.

Answering the original question (which ecommerce platform is growing?), the answer is Magento. In the last year it’s taken grown 6% from 20% to 26% of eCommerce sites in the Alexa top million.

WordPress eCommerce isn’t even significant enough to have its own slice.

I think this value should be visible and also authors could be classified by that value! buyers could reach great designers even if they’ve a few items…

Envato wants authors to produce items like fire hose. Just blasting out huge amounts at passable quality. It’s no surprise most authors have very low sales ratios.

Envato has no emphasis on authors producing just a few well-maintained items, and monetizing that kind of effort. It’s backwards because “super products” are very likely the majority of their revenue and a huge missed opportunity for recurring revenue.

@ gracestudio — That’s exactly my point. Elegant Themes is a subscription model. They do get paid for keeping their themes updated. It sounds like that is something you’re willing to pay for, it’s just a matter of Envato providing those tools (or authors charging for updates independently).

Many buyers are not designers or studios, but business owners with some DIY spirit. It’s not an incentive for authors to have visibility when they produce new themes to them. The business buyer has already chosen and likely won’t be switching themes, so keeping that relationship a win/win for both sides requires paid updates.

It feels stupid even having to argue for this. Paid upgrades and subscriptions are standard pricing models for commercial software (operating systems, video games, office apps, etc).

You cannot place an inner shadow on an image because it falls behind the content layer, but above the background layer. You can however wrap the image in a div and set the img zindex to -1 then the shadow will overlay the image.

Or simply wrap the image in a div and use pseudo content to generate a box absolutely positioned over the image and matched to its width height. You cannot do this directly on an image because images cannot have pseudo content.

Both those fixes are pretty simple to implement.

Apparently you can’t say “snake pit” on the forums :) Although snakes are a deadly threat in Australia.

@ P4tient — I’m curious about this “can’t control the quality of his work” comment. Tell me more.
