just an idea !
I think all WP themes and plugins on the market should have a standard way of telling the user an update is available. This includes standalone plugins along with plugins that have been bundled with themes under an extended license.
This should be required when submitting an item.
This will help with any future theme security issues and help buyers keep their bundled plugins up to date.
I’m not necessarily talking about automatic updates, as that’s quite difficult to implement (and an entirely different beast under wp network mode). Just a notice saying “there’s a new version of XYZ available, click here for update instructions”.
If anyone else thinks this is a good idea maybe we can compile a list of current ways authors show update notices (along with automatic updates- but keeping that part optional – focus on the notification).
If we can then build a couple of “standard” ways to do this then that’ll help all authors.
Let me know any thoughts!
Well since this change was introduced my analytics conversion rate has increased so +1 thanks
Also I like screenshots, it’s nice to highlight good/unique features in the screenshots rather than hiding them in a live demo somewhere. Regulars will hit the live preview button on the search results page anyway,
Another note: theme preview visits have dropped quite a bit in analytics, but sales have increased. Interesting! Weird?
Looks nice, is this built with PhoneGap?Also yes, this particular contest is for Buyers:
We want you to create a tool or app to benefit Envato Market buyers.
Great implementation though – be sure to submit it to Envato Extras so people can start finding it
I keep seeing this screen, even after I’ve approved the application. Isn’t it supposed to skip that screen the next time a user tries to log in?
With Google OAuth you have to set
approval_prompt to false. This stops the prompt every time. However if you don’t prompt you do not get a refresh token, if the user approves via a prompt you get a refresh token. The Envato API might have something similar.
edit: I just checked the build.envato.com OAuth login sequence (because that one doesn’t prompt for approval) and there is no approval_prompt parameter, they have a special scope and realm param which probably handles no prompt specially.
