Here’s my 4 hour cms http://tf.dtbaker.com.au/simple_cms_editor/ hopefully re-do it so it’s more like cushy (ie: define editable regions with a class, admin backend to setup sites and ftp details, a single install to manage multiple websites)

So good! I was just implementing my own license manager.

Product activation is done via emailing me through my contact page. The php script reads the item purchase page from the link that is sent along with the email. This generates a license bound to the host name they are running the script from. If the script is used on a different host name, the license doesn’t match so a message is displayed and I’m notified via email.

Won’t stop the hardcore coder, but a good deterrent.

If envato were to implement some api, even a very limited one, that allowed a script to interact with license data that would be AMAZING :)

my 2c

Curious to what Code Canyon would set the price at?

maybe between $15 and $25 ?

found it really doesn’t matter regarding price. if it’s expensive, you get less sales. if it’s cheap, you get heaps of sales.

averages out the same.

one idea is to submit a version 1, then request a price rise a few weeks laster with a version 2 that contains more features, etc..

You’ll just have to get them to re-submit their enquiry.

Suggest you continue working on your next theme.

Come back in a few weeks with some fresh design ideas after working on another theme.

(it’s always a good idea to have 2 or 3 themes going at once incase one gets rejected)

Maybe try changing:

<div style="position: relative; ">
<span class="price_cat">$20.00</span>
</div>

to

<div style="position: absolute; z-index: 999; ">
<span class="price_cat">$20.00</span>
</div>

and changing the .price_cat css to:

background: url(images/pricebg.png) 100% 50%;
color: white;
height: 40px;
letter-spacing: 1px;
line-height: 36px;
padding-left: 10px;
padding-right: 10px;
position: absolute;
text-transform: uppercase;
top: 15px;
margin-left:150px;

adjust margin-left to suit?

eh just my 2c.

Unfortunately a blur() ajax request won’t work in a browser crash / power outage.

If the script is in auto save mode, maybe it can detect when a user has entered their email again for a second time, and then prompt them to load their previous form data.

All saved remotely in serialized flat files on the server.

Here is an example of the “save for later” form code:

Interesting, an “auto form saver” feature.

Few challenges there.

If the browser crashes half way through completing a form, and the end user comes back to complete the form again, might be hard to work out which end user that form data belonged to.

You’ll want to ensure a half completed form is shown back to the correct end user :) cookies and sessions may work, but not ideal especially if the browser crashes.

Maybe i’ll match it on ipaddress/browser user agent, with the option to link an auto-saved form to a member id if the site has an existing member system.

Sorry, rambling to myself there. I’ll come visit this thread again when I go to finish up the script.
