For managing code files etc as a team, git is the way to go. To get started easily, get a “micro” github.com account, ($7/month), and add each other to a new project.
If you’re talking about actually collaboratively editing code together remotely, it gets a bit more complicated. You could use a remote tmux session over SSH, and use a command line editor like vim or emacs (assuming your server is running some linux variant)
I think the comments used to default to the last page when opening up, but now it is going to the first page. I’m not sure we want to display the oldest comments first, especially if an item is a couple years old.
Could you change the “landing page” to the latest comment page upon clicking on the item comments link on the item profile page instead of being on page 1 please?
- After this implementation I don’t understand why you changed that oldest comment (first page) is presented first now. I don’t like that at all, and also authors who update they products (themeforest for example) probably will not like it too. I think that Newest comment by default should be presented as a first one.
Yup. Good spot. Will fix that.
- First of all “enter terms of search” option is cool, but why we need to first enter something to be able to filter it to “all comments” or “buyers & author only”. What if I want to see all buyer comments… Buyers will probably look for that first when checking some item comments.
- Only when you enter something you get ability to sort it by “newest” “oldest”. That Newest/Oldest sorting option should be by always presented.
More good feedback. Will look at what’s involved changing it to work that way.
I just made some quick fixes to address the obvious bugs people have pointed out
- Comments with complaints that had been upheld were hidden before. After the search update, they were being shown. Fixed that so they’re hidden again
- Sort order was reversed so that newest was shown first. Fixed that so it’s back to the oldest first sorting
There is still an issue with very recent fully deleted comments showing up in search results. Note that this is “deleted” comments, which are different to ones that have an upheld complaint (they are handled fine).
By “recent” I mean comments deleted in the last few hours since I ran a full search engine reindex
I’ll work on fixing that one too tomorrow.
Great piece of hardware if you’re on a computer all day
phpbits saidMy heavy use apps: 1Password, Dropbox, Chrome, iTerm, Little Snitch, Monosnap, Moom, Pixelmator, Pocket, Private Internet Access, ReadKit, Sequel Pro, Skype, Textual, Things, Tweetbot, VMware Fusion
I’ll appreciate any app or software recommendation
Oh, and Minecraft
And on the command line: homebrew, vim, tmux, git
A bunch of Envato devs have started using Boxen, and swear by it for managing the various tools and libraries we need. I’ve been meaning to try it out, but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
I’m not sure if it’s because of my internet connection here or the badges doesn’t have retina version.. i would love to see my paw clearly
No retina icons sorry. Makes me sad on my MBP too
Did the comment display order change to show the newest at the top of the page, like a blog?
Not sure what’s going on there. It’s not intentional. Will get that looked at.
Also, the search should be weighted toward newer comments. For example, maybe a feature didn’t exist 2 years ago, but has since been added. I’d hate for a customer to search for “feature A” and find a comment that says “no, that is not a feature”, when in the meantime it has been made part of the product.
Relevance scoring on comments is probably something that we’ll be tweaking in the near future. Once we see some patterns in what people are looking for, and how they’re using search, we’ll be in a better place to incorporate that kind of fine tuning.
I think maybe we need better comment curation abilities now that we have search. Perhaps something like being able to mark comments as excluded from search (by the author) – comments that are no longer relevant to the current version of the item (whether regarding features or solutions) should be excluded from results, or this could just cause greater customer confusion.
Agreed. Item support is something we’re thinking about how to do better.
For comments search though, we’ve kept it simple and minimal initially to get the first version working, and launched for everyone to use.
Just checked back and noticed deleted comments are still showing – this is a pretty big deal… anything you can do until the search itself is fixed????
I can manually purge individual comments from the search engine for now
Can you post links to them (or send URLs to firstname.lastname@example.org if you don’t want to publicize them here). If it’s only a handful, I can remove them manually.
Comments search is very good idea.
But, removed comments are also displayed. So, it’s very bad for authors…
Deleted comments are now visible, and no option to flag them. Please fix asap.
Yup. Deletions aren’t getting picked up and removed from the index properly. Working on a fix for that now. That’s a bug, and it’s our bad sorry
In the interim, I’ve kicked off a full reindex of the search data, so it will be synced properly up for the moment.
Hi, I just signed up to answer some guy’s question on character encoding. I uploaded an avatar, but it doesn’t show in the forum. When I went to check the address of the image, I got this response:http://3.envato-static.com/files2/buckets/7/72973007/gush_80.png <Error> <Code>AccessDenied</Code> <Message>Access Denied</Message> <RequestId>CCF494210C33EB87</RequestId> <HostId>a7O2o8FF0Otum0DJ0zfNkXvx8c68qP63anJ6nCtc3K3D+9fOcb+3A326TVnN1BNM</HostId> </Error>
Yup, sounds like it hadn’t finished being pushed properly to S3 (we store all the user avatars there). Once it gets processed it’s ok though.
