I don’t want to imagine the review queue in January…
It’s not the best to upload now but if everyone will wait until January, items will be visible probably for an hour on the homepage.
I am also disappointed. The new direction is good but somehow this layout doesn’t seem very professional. I’ve seen soooooo many good admin templates here and around the web. They could find a better one easily. Or at least they should’ve create a design contest and offer free WordPress T-shirts, etc. I’m sure a lot of WP lover would create a better design for free.
This happened me recently as well with Empire. I submitted a ticket and it solved the issue.
I don’t like it either. It’s the right path but something is not OK with it. Plus I have to restyle half of my theme option CSS in ALL my themes.
ZoomIt: this option is already there..
Let’s see two examples to understand my problem better.
Example #1: User installs a new WP plugin, e.g.: Google maps shortcode, which outputs the div of the map and some scripts after that to start the map. When I call this page (where the google map shortcode is placed) the scripts won’t (always) work.
Example #2: User installs a ToolTip plugin. But this plugin won’t print any scripts after the shortcode, instead it prints its own script in the head and executes it when the document is ready, e.g.: $(‘a.icon’).toolTip(); This script also won’t work because first I need the content elements from the AJAX call, I can apply the function after that only. Of course if I put it into success callback, it works. But should the user put every new JS function into this callback function? How should I handle this well?
Extra info which may help: I use jQuery.load() function and I only get the #content div from the loaded pages, not the whole page.
Idea as possible solution #1 (not tested yet): get script tags from AJAX loaded content and eval() them?
So, Envato, here’s the list what the marketplace needs:
- Raise standards a little bit to filter those cloned and same looking themes
- Better homepage layout to showcase new items
- Better review/approval timing, max 30 items/week or let’s say 30 items/5 days (if there are so many quality items), so every author gets his/her 15 minutes of fame
An official response would be great from Envato about this. But NOT the copy-paste one, please. We need concrete things like “A new homepage is coming, expect it in January 3, 2014” OR “We don’t want to replace design, maybe 2 years later when the pipeline is clear”. At least we’d know what to expect.
