So many themes here on ThemeForest and you stop to something that is not even optimized for a such website type. Not talking that they does not include the functionality for this.

Use a theme that is designed for this. Or if you can’t find it, or if you have the code and need just a design, use a theme that is optimized, pages loads fast and does not include every script found on internet.

For example use YSlow to check the source and performance: http://yslow.org/

Your site may have a lot of users connected at one time and the performnce is very important. Cheers. ;)

Agreed. It’s horrible for me on a mac. Changing the default scrollbar behavior in such a way is a big no-no in my book, but it’s so popular for some reason. I just can’t grasp why people like to add useless sh*t to their themes.
+1, leave scroll bars well and truly alone

Uhh! Who’s here the new power elite? Congrats. ;D

Sorry for Off-topic. I always said it and will say: “Don’t override the default behavior”. When I see others using this, first thing I say is to remove it. The website becomes useless, in some browsers.

Two questions:
1. A site with cooking recipes is eligible? (If is to say, it’s like a “Cooking School”).
2. Can we create themes that will fit in similar categories? For example a theme that can be used for: Music Schools, Dance Schools, Drama School or Art Schools.

Regards.

Or we could have a system like Google has, to suggest similar items only if you rate an item which you have used (at least for me on my phone and tablet, this always works :) I immediately go rating the item)

That’s why so many 1star ratings are there. People rate extensions only to see other, and they don’t care if it’s 1 star or 5. :sarcasm:

When I answer the support emails, I have the following text as a signature:
If you like the level of support and my work, please don’t forget to rate it.
I appreciate this. Thank you.

I don’t force the user to rate the item, I just add a reminder. But too many users ask me where they can rate me, because on the item page it’s not possible. Next I provide the instructions.

Btw, what I want to say, even with this message on each email, I get 3 ratings only after 15-20 sales.

Also, even the customers that trust me and know my work, had a good experience with one of my themes purchased before, they don’t rate imediatelly. They first install it, test it, play a few days with it and only then they rate it.

IMO, the best option to prevent these fake ratings, is to make ratings visible only after a week or so. And also Envato should improve the system to check for user IP adress, email, paypal/skrill email, etc.

You won’t find eCommerce platform that runs fst on a shared hosting server. It just does not exists. In your case, I think you are using a theme that is not optimized for speed.

You can try DigitalOcean(pay pe hour), play with it and see the difference. When I switched from a shared hosting to a VPS I had no words to say what I feel. You have nothing to loss, just a few cents. https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing/

If you are trying to run your site on a shared host, then it’s normal to be slow. Try to install it on a vps + nginx + a caching plugin and you’ll see the difference.

This and this can help you.
