Sorry, I’m not clear. Please can you give me specific instructions as to how to reduce the space ie where do I find the screen.css ? I wasn’t able to see it in the editor.

Also do you have any ideas why might site is slow? Is this because of the theme??


Looking at the about page I don’t particularly see anything wrong? You have paragraghs that have spacing between them which is set in the screen.css at 1em padding top and bottom line 34 – if you want to reduce the gap then simply alter the amount of padding or don’t wrap all your text in separate p tags, just wrap all of it once and use a break tag.

Personally I think the spacing works well for definition and easy ready – I will say your site is incredibly slow though.

Unfortunately I’m not at liberty to provide support for this theme – you should contact the author directly via the method outlined for their support (if offered) with the product purchased, or by following the link provided by the staff member above – however searching your theme directory you should find the style sheet and edit – a search in google for basic html editing should also help you out. As for your site, could be many things, your content (images if not optimized prior to uploading), plugins (too many slow things down) or just low cost hosting, you kinda get what you pay for with hosting so if you are with hostgator / go daddy etc then that may well be your issue.

I hope that helps get you started.

@marketopia – although your efforts should be commended it really isn’t the correct answer to have to direct someone off the marketplaces for any reason, not the least just so that they can find files to actually buy!

It’s ridiculous to even think that, it’s a total embarrassment that buyers are here complaining and we still have useless search in place and it seems to be getting worse not better.

@tips4design – May I take this opportunity to apologize that you had to come here to state what others are also saying – I truly hope your experience becomes better quickly and I appreciate you hanging in there – nothing us authors can do unfortunately and we’re here voicing the same concerns!

I am lost as to what you guys are talking about, i cant find a single ad on microlancer. Any chance someone can post a link or screenshot… ..?

or any portfolio page, or do a search for something – all on the bottom of each page.

You should take a look at the Marketing > Landing Pages category – here’s a link:

So… what’s going on with the portfolio’s? What is active items vs public portfolio, and when are things going to get fixed? Now it’s weekend in Australia so I guess we’ll see zero action for a few days now also.

Is no one held accountable for these things? I’ve worked at companies where if you did something like this you wouldn’t go home until it’s fixed, and that’s not because of management telling you, it’s that the people maintaining and creating the stuff care enough about their users to make sure things are back to normal asap.

Sorry, the official line from Envato is home page exposure doesn’t increase sales whatsoever. You’re drunk :)

It’s the same problem, and you posted on a thread that’s nothing about the issue, hence I offered you the ability to add to that thread also .

Regardless to whichever marketplace you’re on, they are all currently the same as what is in that thread I pointed you to, and yes, it shouldn’t be like that at all, but you’re not the only one who’s customers scan their profiles that are currently messed up.

BTW – just clicking ‘forums’ at the top of the screen shows all marketplace forums ;)

It came up at around the same time the new changes were rolled out, people are also complaining here about an earning page not working which also might not have to do with these changes, and this is a staff thread accessible on all marketplaces where reporting a bug might be more likely be read by staff. so that’s why I post in this thread.

And the Site Feedback is not the same throughout the marketplaces, see for example the videohive page: http://videohive.net/forums/topic/site-feedback/36

Afaik, there is no way to get to TF exclusive forums when you are on another marketplace, if you click on forums you only see the forums of that particular marketplace (even when they might be called the same).

My bad – was under the impression it would show you – I even tried clicking all marketplaces and it doesn’t appear there – I guess that’s just a list of threads set for all marketplaces, not threads in all marketplaces (that’s just confusing!) :)

So much broke with all the things!

EDIT: now I see the search box issue above. Seriously guys it’s really crazy that a change to fonts in a header breaks everything….

not really helpful that thread :D, especially since it is only accessible on tf and not on all marketplaces. thing is, people who look at my portfolio see a strange order of my items, and that should be fixed asap.
