590×300 image will open liveDemos as we used to.

I’m sorry, but I think it won’t (unfortunately)....

The post was very clear: the preview image will not do anything. The buttons under the preview image will show live demo or the screenshots:


we’ve decided to make the following changes:
  • The lightbox screenshot preview link has been removed from the main image
  • A screenshot preview is available by clicking on the screenshot button, using the new lightbox
  • A live preview is available by clicking on the live preview button

So there’s (and will be) no way to get back to the old functionality when the user clicks the main image (590×300) and opens the live demo?

I’ve just discovered Sia :) An Australian singer, songwriter and music video director. I became addicted. “Elastic heart” and “Chandelier” became my favorites. What an addictive accent and voice!

328,112,974 views on youtube….I’m afraid I’m responsible for half of them :D

You do realize that the post was initially written 8 months ago, don’t you? :)

True and sad, but:

1. When the Envato competitors mostly sell kits, bundles and mega-bundles (with 30%, 40%, 50% off) it’s difficult to not do the same. Otherwise you loose customers.

2. When an agency or an individual will build a website from scratch for a coffee shop, for a restaurant, for anything else, it will be always easier to buy a theme with all-included which costs 58% – than to buy a niche theme with 58$ then a couple of required plugins with 200$.

3. In my opinion, themes should customize the look&feel, while plugins should cover the functionality. I think that was the purpose from the beginning.

4. On the other hand, it’s in human nature to try to get more with less money.

5. Multi-purpose monster themes definitely need to have a bigger price.

6. There are some people who think that like on Flash glorious days, you need to buy a single website template which does everything and you can build the website based on it.

7. I think (but that is my personal opinion) that the licenses are not fully understood here and there are many people who buy those huge themes because they customize each of them in different ways and use the same template license for more domains/customers.

Unfortunately, I don’t think there will be an update soon…. Most probably the effects must be measured first by Envato with analitycs and data tools during a month at least, before being able to tell if this influences sales negatively or not.

I think all WP themes and plugins on the market should have a standard way of telling the user an update is available.

I also think so, I think this should be unified, standard for everybody…..

I think that every item on Envato Market should contain an automatic field named “version number” (like it has the “last updated” field). Then, this version number should be readable from Envato API and maybe the API should also have a method to read if an update is available or not….


I agree and that’s why I adapted a small PHP script to do this. It’s very easy to integrate in any plugin or theme.

I’m interested. Can you please give us some details about how it works? From where it reads the version number? I have clicked the getbutterfly link from github but it goes to a 404 page.

Up!
They said already working on it.

They have said that they are working to link back the live previews for the items which are themes, but the same is needed for codecanyon items too, or for other TF itmes, not only for themes: http://themeforest.net/forums/message/go_to/1291636

Because it’s already a week since the preview image does not point to live previews and there is still no change….could you please at least make the “Live Preview” button more visible?
