It’s probably a change in the main page template so it makes it easier to do responsive so everything can be stacked – just a guess. Envato really need to either listen to their UI/UX professionals on staff, or indeed get some UI/UX people on staff.
Yes, I Through same once I saw this. But c’mon it could be done in a lot more beautiful and elegant way.

Absolutely it could, that’s kind of my point also :)

Are these changes even tested properly?

I think it’s obvious with the spelling mistakes and tags that shouldn’t be there that it wasn’t.

I’m really wondering if this has something to do with any traffic down trend on the marketplace:

CodeCanyon

ThemeForest

I believe it does, trend is identical on both marketplaces

that is amazingly disturbing.

The new pop out modal window for tags is far less usable than a list. it seems that changes are made just to look different rather than any actual usability improvements.
It is very doubtful that any usability study is done with new search other than “it looks cool”. Envato was suppose to make website responsive and this here is a huge step backwards, since any popup to select anything will look bad on small screen. The only way to make search on small screens is to have it as off-canvas panel and not to use popups anywhere.

Absolutely. The current responsive home page is a complete disaster and needs a complete overhaul using people experienced in UI and UX. I hate to see the results of responsive inner pages if this is the solution for the home page. Really not good enough for a small 20 page site never mind a company earning millions with such a large user base.

Change your theme to twenty Fifteen, delete the other old install of the theme, then upload the theme and activate. Obviously it goes without saying that you may want to back up your install first – just in case.

There are several very clean, simple and usable themes with WooCommerce available here – here’s a link using the search for woocommerce + clean:

Up until a week ago things were pretty much on target for us and then a massive drop. Weekend was the worse ever for us, today we have zero sales.
