Flagged for self promotion. Not allowed — see forum rules.
Fast + cheap = buy a theme. There is nothing faster or cheaper. You will not be able to hire a developer or designer with those requirements.
That’s a useful idea. These are the type of things Envato should be doing (and discussing openly).
Just another UX misfire. Onto the pile it goes!
Hi John, congrats on the new position. You’re in for plenty of competing opinions, demands, and stirred emotions. It’s been too long but I’m really pleased to see an Envato dev taking an active role on the forums.
I’ve expressed my (mounting) share of criticism over the lack of user-facing improvements on the marketplaces over the last 18 months, while changes that are made seem increasingly out of touch with requests repeatedly made by authors and buyers. There are many livelihoods at stake here and the frustration from Envato’s limited disclosure is more palpable than I can remember.
For what it’s worth, I hope you can help the team nail it and turn perceptions around.
Not necessarily, but Magento is a muchnmorecomplexmsystem than your landing page. You’ll have your work cut out for you. Choosing a theme that is easily customizable will help you get moving faster (hint hint).
I don’t use the FAQs for these reasons:
1. No search 2. No grouping 3. No re-ordering 4. Ugly typography
Agreed, Envato can’t be trusted to improve this. You’re better off making a simple HTML page of FAQs yourself and doing it right (that’s what I did).
It wouldn’t be a Magento setting unless you’ve specified for media to be stored on an alternative server. Even then Magento still writes files to the same location, you’re just expected to sync.
It could also be file ownership permissions. This really varies server to server so it’s best to contact your host for guidance. They’ll know how you environment is configured.
Your server permissions for the /media folder are incorrect and preventing the file from being written to disk. Contact your hosting company for assistance.
