I am working on a new project where I am using code that is only PHP 5.3+ compatible.
5.3 is available since November 2009, but I wonder if there are many servers still running on 5.2.
I searched the envato docs and guidelines, but it doesn’t specify anything related to this issue. And on the plugin page we can only specify WordPress version compatibility, not PHP version.
WordPress itself only needs 5.2.4+, apparently.
Do you think it’s safe to program for 5.3+? What’s your experience?
Hi DigitalBuilder! Welcome to the forums!
This has been a well debated topic, almost every week someone starts a thread with a similar suggestions.Check out some of them:
And an official thread by envato staff:http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/new-features-the-starting-point-for-ratings/95607
Hopefully they will hear us out
I think filtering search by date (first release and last update) is very important for a buyer…
First release +1
Last update, nope.
Why? Well last update doesn’t always mean an item is abandoned, it could just mean the item is now currently stable. I find that the update rate of all my items slows down from release, as initial bugs are discovered, fixed, new features etc. It gets to a point where I would consider the item stable, and from then the updates become major releases, once every two months depending on the item, once every 4 months.I’d hate to think people were missing my items because of mistaking freshness of update, against stability of item.
I agree with TommusRhodus. If ‘sort by last update’ was available, it would only make authors make small insignificant updates all the time just to be on top of the list.
I agree also with cooledition idea: sort items by most sales with a date range makes sense. But I guess in the end they would be similar results anyway.
Luxemburg is not bad located, but something like Prague would be more central to everyone in Europe no? Not to mention cheaper than Luxemburg
Would love a European meetup !
Envato is missing the Developer license…
Congratulations! Well deserved!
