Show things like, “People who viewed this, also viewed this item” This is what other sites do, why can’t Envato think out the box more. There’s so much potential to make an amazing marketplace.
One of the best pieces of advice I’ve read in this entire thread. I still don’t see why we can’t have what you just suggested whilst keeping the new menu introduced.
We looked at the analytics and found that while existing signed-in members frequently use the site switcher and the footer to navigate between the marketplaces, only a tiny number of new visitors use them (and they were more likely to use the footer links, which are more visible).
Some of you are redesigning yet another dropdown menu. Others have suggested fading out all menu items and keeping only the active menu in full opacity. Why ? The issue is one of branding and bringing the marketplaces closer. The menu items need to be visible in plain sight. This is what the research conducted shows.
Others have said we need a shopping cart and this change makes no sense without. On the contrary, to me it seems we’re headed exactly there. They appear to have started with enforcing the Envato brand (new logo ), SSO ( single sign-on), a new hub site and now the current step is brand consolidation across the board.
There have been many updates recently but these specific updates seem connected and IMO lead to a shopping cart, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Give it time.

As others have stated, the UI of your app is lacking. Try and use a popular UI toolkit. The likelihood of the user knowing how to customize it is greater.
The tour preview could do with a filter i.e. allow filtering based on the country/city/check-in and check-out date/rating etc. If your export supports popular email marketing service providers, then name these. if not work on that too.
Do you have a back end to tie this all up together ? Nobody wants to fiddle with code so make sure you got a backend to this where the user can upload and organize/categorize their images, view bookings and so forth.
Lastly, keep working on your item, it will eventually get accepted if you improve it.

^ See how much bad karma this menu has, the community is turning against each other, me and VF were buddies and now we angry.. now look at Creative and familychoice.. change it back Envato We need a redesign that unites all, not segregates everyone. Peace!
haha Envato don’t listen! Divide and conquer! You can have your cake and eat it too ( just kidding, lets hug )
Lucky you, you’re one of the beneficiaries of the menu highlighting less popular areas of the site. Others (as mentioned in this thread) are noticing a drop in sales, which reinforces my suggestion that it’s not working for everyone.
Actually, I am not convinced that this is what is really happening. Items sold on each marketplace aren’t somehow mutually exclusive but complement one another. If someone wants a theme, they will get a theme. They aren’t going to find their theme on audiojungle or videohive. But here’s what is interesting, if a buyer wants a theme and discovers the marketplace also offers audio assets, they are likely to get both or come back later for the audio asset OR recommend it to a friend that needs one. That’s because someone wanting a theme could also want an audio/video file, a logo from graphic river, a plugin from codecanyon and vice versa.
Just because themeforest has a lot more traffic does not mean they won’t benefit from this. This is not the best analogy but all this reminds me of an irrigation canal where water flows from the source to the areas being irrigated. The current header tightly connects the marketplaces and now water will flow into every opening, gap, chink, crack, hole it can find. Give it time
Don’t mean to rub it in but the debate on whether this has a negative impact on sales after 2 days is premature.
Can’t wait for the Christmas bundle banner to show up
Great to be in the christmas bundle surely
Some “in the field” feedback for you! I was showing a client PhotoDune on her computer, browsing for some pics to buy. I got a “oh do these guys do website themes as well?” from her.
lol that’s just a very clever way to collect feedback. Seems like the headers are doing what they were originally designed to do. We now have a user wanting photos that is likely to come back to buy a theme as well. Don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch but in my book, this sums up to effective exposure.
