Open the xml file in chrome. Or save-as. The fancy layout with + – is part of firefox.

Did both paypal and skrill options cause an error?

It might be best to contact support with any error messages: https://support.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

There is a difference between “Open Source” and “Free and Open Source”.

Open Source means that the source code is “open” and that it can be modified by the end user. As opposed to “Closed Source” such as Microsoft Windows or Photoshop (where the source code is not available, and it’s not possible to change the code).

All software on CodeCanyon should be “Open Source” in that the buyer has free access to modify the underlying code and there is no encrypted/obfuscated code.

More can be read about FOSS software here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_and_open-source_software

Also, CodeCanyon and ThemeForest have a great GPL license option for authors. This is explained here: http://codecanyon.net/licenses/faq#100-gpl-a

Maybe try to provide a small sample of the file so someone can see what format the current data is in (CSV, GPX, etc..) and what fields are available (lat, lng, address, etc..).

You might be able to find a plugin that does something like “store locations” on a map. Click here to see some examples from the marketplace. Depending on the way “store locations” are managed through WordPress (custom post type?) you might then be able to use an existing WordPress import script to import your data.

This might “just work” out of the box, or if you find something close I’m sure you could get someone to help with small modifications / initial setup.

Some plugins might even show the closes store (water source) based on your current GPS coordinates from the phone. That would be cool :)

Check out the services offered here: http://studio.envato.com/explore/wordpress-plug-ins you might be able to find someone to assist with any modifications (or even creating your own plugin from scratch if there is budget for it).

Good luck, and be sure to post back here with some screenshots of the end result when it’s done.

Hey I noticed this nice red banner that displays for <= IE7 on the marketplaces:

\\

Should this notice be changed to display for IE8 users as well, since majority of new items here would not be compatible?

(also, new author dashboard announcement box?)

Of interest how will you know what version of the API a plugin uses? Do you have a method for searching the code of all uploaded items to determine this?

Looks like they’re going off the item description/tags. Anything that doesn’t have facebook 2.0 api in it will be notified/soft disabled. Or they could have some super cool ninja way of examining item code/content in bulk.

Hey there,

Anybody else using AWS CloudFront on their website?

I just enabled it for a WordPress blog and a custom PHP script all hosted on a single domain. I had to use Route 53 as I wanted to point my apex domain record (ie: mysite.com without the www.) to CloudFront.

So far it seems to work ok. It has instantly cached all static content for me and I can see in the server logs that no static content requests are getting through.

All dynamic content seems to be working ok so far, even all ajax requests and other POST data in the custom PHP script.

Now I can concentrate on optimising some of the slower portions of this WordPress install.

Tomorrow I’ll try to figure out if it’s possible to make CloudFront cache everything if the user isn’t logged into WordPress (or has anything in a shopping cart). Hopefully there’s some feature in CloudFront that can check cookies to decide which requests to send through to my server.

Anybody else had experience with this (and WordPress)? Any problems I should look out for?

Cheers,
dtbaker

The reviewer will still need a way to test the item. They cannot purchase your item to get a code to test it.

You’ll need to provide a way for the reviewer to test the item (fake code?) . The reviewer will have the final say.
