Just updated from 7 to 10, it took about 40 minutes – bare in mind I installed it onto a regular hard drive, not an ssd, so I’m guessing it could be faster. Everything works like a charm, audio interface drivers working great, all of my Reaper projects loading properly, plugin licenses still valid, all files, folders and apps intact, even my desktop shortcuts and such. Didn’t expect this process to be so seamless and foolproof. So far, so good.
How can we tel if our files are “responsive layout” ready? I looked at a bunch and the ‘Enable Responsive Layout’ mark was checked yes.
It becomes best visible if you use 2 columns or more and then resize your webbrowser. The second column should move below the first column and so on. Also if you use a image in your item description it should resize to the actual window size instead of being croped.While i see some benfits for this, i still don’t understand why we do not have a html block that will be showed troughout our items/portfolio. We would have to change most of the things then only in ONE PLACE instead of editing hundreds of items.
adammonroe said+1 Well stated. Given that most of our clients here (at least for me according to the invoices) are small companies / businesses and I’m sure they’d be using desktops and laptops to do any browsing and buying, so it sounds like a pointless exercise. I think Envato knows this, but adding responsive layout can only improve their google search rank, and there will be at least some buyers using mobile devices, so why not?
Google pimp-slapped everyone who had non-dynamic pages a few months back, maybe has something to do with it. Internet 2.0, 3.0 (or whatever version we are in) is trying to force everyone into dynamic layouts, so content looks “good” across all devices. Funny thing is, depending on what you are selling, smartphone users might never buy anything from you in a million years. I know this is the case with my personal website. This is the future of the internet, as long as everyone is still pooping their pants over smartphones. Personally, I just don’t think mobile users are the ones spending money online, because using a smartphone to do more than check e-mail or use Facebook is kind of a pain in the butt, no matter how optimized developers try to make it, navigating a small screen that you have to imprecisely touch is just an inherently bad experience.
Ahh, exactly my case. He he he
On my test installation Windows 10 crashed my audio interface. Need to continue?
While i see the need for responsive layouts in 2015 and the future, i feel with Lumen Media here. From time to time Envato decides to make changes on the layout, which might be a good thing and for sure was only meant to improve the marketplaces. BUT, everytime we have to go trough all our items and update everything manually, this happened now so many times, i can’t even remember was it 5 or 6 times in the past few years.
We authors ask since a long time to include a html block that will be displayed item-wide trough our portfolio. That would be such a huge time safer for exatly this tasks. But we never get that option and are forced to update hundreds of descriptions and addons even if they would be the same troughout our portfolios.
Please, please support those Authors who take their time to have the items look nice and tidy by adding thumbnails, custom search features and so on and do not force us to just write a basic short description like many here. This is not what customers want to see and i guess the authors with the “good” looking item pages helped Envato a lot by gaining new customers in the past.Thanks
