Great job Orman, you’ve set a great example for others to learn from. Congratulations on the big milestone!
WordPress is a platform. Magento is a platform. WordPress themes and Magento themes are not interchangeable.
All Magento themes on ThemeForest are for Magento Community edition, which is free and open-source. You need to install this on your server just like you would need to install WordPress.
- If author is logged in
- View any user profile
- See if, which, when, and how many items of mine they have purchased
The API should return the same info just as easily. It’s incomprehensible that authors have no right to know who their customers are, but Envato does.
I’ve recently tested these.
Zurb’s Reveal http://www.zurb.com/playground/reveal-modal-plugin Which is part of Foundation also: http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/reveal.php
Colorbox http://www.jacklmoore.com/colorbox Which needs a rewrite, but ultimately fit my needs better.
Just noticed it too, was going to post a bug here.
SCSS + Compass. The only way to write CSS in 2011 and beyond. Yes 2011.
I think this illustrates that “Top Authors” should be ranked by sales revenue and not sales count.
I think total sales are not a factor. I experienced this as an author with a category leader (for years) that was never featured.
However, sales growth does seem to factor in. Items that are selling a lot very fast have a habit of being selected as a featured item. It makes sense that ThemeForest wants even more eyes on them.
This leads me to believe there is a newness criteria as well. Older items (regardless of achievement) seem ineligible for being featured.
Envato should create a http://uservoice.com account, so they can track (and we can suggest/vote) on needs/ideas for the marketplaces in a consistent and organized manner. Obviously the years worth of nagging forum threads have not had the desired impact.
Even the free version would be perfectly usable.
You can see Magento’s account for an example here: http://magento.uservoice.com/forums/24441-magento-ecommerce-platform
