Wow, looks awesome! Can’t wait to give it a test. I gave up after the last app tried was constantly crashing. Hopefully this runs as good as it looks Thanks!
Finally got around to testing the release candidate today. I wish they had a general board in their forums so I could just say THANK YOU WooThemes! Finally moving the ‘Proceed to Checkout’ button to the bottom of the page is hands down my favorite change. I know there are some themes that have altered the page to do this already, but I think it should be a staple. There is no point in having an order summary on this page if customers proceed to checkout before even seeing it. I have so many happy clients right now
Congrats! I hope it’s the first of many milestones
That is weird…. maybe it is just taking a little while to add them all. I think all the new site changes released this week are keeping them pretty busy
On a more related side-note, not a big fan of all the new lines on the statement page. It’s a waste of space and much harder for me to browse through and see what items are selling more or less. It’s just plastered with ‘Author Fee’ everywhere. Couldn’t we just make that a sub-note or something in the same row as the sale price?
Definitely a good point Epeo! I don’t consider myself a very dumb person, but I am quite a bit lost here after following this discussion the last couple days. I would love to see Envato succeed in becoming a larger business, it was been great to work with so far, but I can’t help but feel like their team is at times just as lost as we are.
Changing your business model is not something that is generally done quickly and with literally a couple days notice to the people who make this entire website possible. If all you want to be is a platform, then there needs to be a LOT more freedom given to the authors, and quite frankly there needs to be a better platform as discussed in so many previous threads.
A lot is missing from this site that makes it a truly good platform, and these small roll outs aren’t helping because now we feel like we’re in limbo.
I don’t even understand the point of statements unless you are going to start depositing money directly to our bank accounts with each one like other marketplaces do. Many are talking about filing it with their accountants, but why when you are still only receiving one deposit to your account a month? As far as I am concerned, Envato is a company I WORK FOR because they set the rules, they set how much I get paid, and they are the ones issuing me the money each month…. if that’s going to change, please do it all at once so I won’t have so many questions I start blabbering on and on in the forums
What kind of drawbacks did you address? I use WordPress multisite a lot, especially in my own personal use, but for clients as well with multiple locations for their store. I’d definitely be interested in hearing your insights as I can think of a couple drawbacks myself that I’ve had to “hack” my way around.
@WPWiseOwl I am not trying to be dramatic, just simply venting my frustration. I am obviously a big fan of WooCommerce, it is certainly better than other WordPress options IMO, but some of their changes are a big ridiculous at times. In version 2.1 they decided to rename many hooks, filters, and functions, simply to reduce the length of the name. As a developer that is incredibly frustrating because if you don’t get all of them, something will break. It just seems like a waste of time. If you’re going to improve something, I am all for upgrading, but making things not backwards compatible is an unnecessary hassle. I can’t say my heart doesn’t sink every time they come out with a new version and I wonder how much time I will need to devote to changes rather than upgrades.
Good stuff here, definitely cool to recognize a lot of these names on here. Guess I never realized that moderators were volunteers. What a generous way to give back, thank you
I love these stories! Montreal is a fun city, but admittedly I haven’t met a whole lot of nice people there on my visits. So nice to ‘meet’ such a nice person not just in Montreal but in this awesome community! It’s inspiring and makes me feel grateful to be counted among this group of extraordinary talent.
