I’m also interested in knowing how this can be accomplished.

We’re currently running a campaign which leads straight to the TF item page and the URL in the ad is created with the Google Analytics URL builder tool.

It works fine and we can see data on traffic coming from this campaign but when the user first lands on our site and then clicks a link to TF to buy the product we don’t have the information we need when he makes a purchase.

I think we have something you might like, check out our magazine theme called Particle

here’s the demo

There’s also another one by IndustrialThemes called Steam which you should checkout as well

Yes. And while you’re at it, give yourself a five star rating. You deserve it! :)

You’re making me blush in front of all these people!

The only problem I’m having with this is how do I test these updating functions? I’m trying to implement the Pixelentity themes updater in to our themes, but I can’t test it, because I haven’t purchased any of my themes myself ( I also can’t do that because envato won’t let me ).

Do I have to sign in to another account, purchase my own theme and then test the API key from that account? Is that the only way?

Same problem, solved it with the user agent fix.

One of the things I love is when I’m browsing the internet and stumble upon a page using one of our themes.

It’s awesome finding it by accident, of all the themes available in the world they chose ours, it sort of makes the world seem a little bit smaller.

I recently discovered, when clicking on a Hacker News link, that the official blog page for Pebble, the smart watch that was funded through Kickstarter, is using one of our themes.

I was like, no way! It’s a great feeling seeing it used in the wild :)

Have you ever stumbled on a webpage using your theme?

relics from the colonial age still going strong (was intentional and still is). maps were made to show the “importance” of the “civilized” world upon the rest of the “savage/primitive” world. Note that Africa is “huge” comparing with Europe

The Lambert projection makes it easy to navigate, you can create flight plans/shipping route by drawing a straight line on it and easily know your direction and you don’t need worry that you’ll end up in the middle of nowhere.

Maps were made to be accurate when sailing back in the day not to show how small Europe is compared to Africa, that’s just silly.

You can add a custom google search engine that only searches your site, that is the simplest way to do it.

We built our own system from the ground up, it took me a few days but I just love being able to have full control.

It has purchase verification, markdown support with a live preview while you type, email notifications, you can subscribe to topics and more.

It’s weird because 5 mins ago we were just talking about if someone would like to use our system.
