My parents got it 2nd hand for my birthday in 1988, it was already pretty old by then. I think it was a cast off from Dad’s work.
I taught myself programming on it using a the 2 programming books in the school library, and reading source code of the GW BASIC games that the person who owned it before had left on there.
Hi, For our account login the current system is very simple.Which is not very strong secure.If there any way to add 2 step verification system as like google so that when we will login then envato will send a verification code to our cell to be proceed to login in marketplace account. I think its very important nowadays and it will be very helpful. What you think guys? Thanks
We do have 2-factor authentication at the moment, but it’s still in beta testing, and only turned on for internal staff. Hopefully it will be rolled out to the larger marketplace community soon.
Firstly, thank you for working at marketplace functionality. Just 2 questions (maybe asked, sorry if so):
1) Search through the item’s comments, will it be?2) Is there a search statistic for each marketplace? E.g. top 50 search terms for last month. This information will be really helpful to power the market
1) very, very soon
2) yes, we have that internally, but it’s more complicated to release that information. The worry would be that every single new item is stuffed with the top 50 search terms as tags if we did that, making search worse overall.
To add to alaja’s questions, 3) Can you integrate the search data with our analytics page? It would be very useful to see what people have searched within in the marketplaces to find my items. I would take the top 5-10 searched words/phrases and use them in my Google Adwords campaign.
3) That sounds interesting and useful. We’ll discuss that more in the team as an idea to look at.
I tried several times but keep getting the same error:
No results were found for your search.What gives? Or is it just me.
There was a bug with searching by item ID sorry.
I’ve fixed it up and deployed a code change for it yesterday. Let me know if you’ve have problems with it still
These images are nice but I bet Envato work space is more friendly than Apple
Funny you should mention that, because there was a blog post published last night about it: Take a (Photo) Tour of Envato’s Melbourne Headquarters. There’s even a shot of me couch coding in there
Not quite an Apple flying saucer, but it’s nice enough
I hope Apple has a monorail, or flying cars, or jetpacks, or something to get around. Would be a big task having to go to the other side of the building to talk to someone.
Since yesterday I got mails that clients can not sign up in my support forum which is using the envato api to confirm the purchase. I just tried a simple call from my web server and it does not return the json. 1.var_dump(file_get_contents("http://marketplace.envato.com/api/edge/USERNAME/API-KEY/verify-purchase:550e8400-e29b-41d4-a716-446655440000.json"));2.$url ="http://marketplace.envato.com/api/edge/USERNAME/API-KEY/verify-purchase:550e8400-e29b-41d4-a716-446655440000.json"; $ch = curl_init($url); curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,true); $json_res = curl_exec($ch); var_dump($json_res);
Of course I replaced username, api key and purchase code. When I put the json url in my browser, I can see it, but not working when I make a php call from my web server. Does anybody have the same issue?Thanks, Rafael
What IP are you connecting from? I’ll check the firewall blacklist to make sure it hasn’t been blocked. That happens sometimes if there is a lot of traffic coming from one IP.
Gomah saidHi Gomah – what do you mean by that?
Well, no more numeric searches?
On themeforest.net you can still do something like that: http://themeforest.net/search?term=2918523Not anymore on graphicriver. :/
Thanks again for pointing that out. I’ve just deployed a code change to fix that. It should be working now if you enter a search term that matches an item numeric ID
Is the search algorithm a secret? Can you share it with us?
Hello. I am curious as to what kind of searching algorithm does the marketplace’s new search engine implements?
We’re just using the built in functionality in elasticsearch. The exact details of how we’re using it to do relevance boosting, and constructing the queries isn’t secret, we just haven’t made it public
For the moment though, we’re mindful of getting it right first. After that, we need to find the balance between helping authors understand search, and not making it prone to gaming and nasty SEO tricks that hurt buyers and authors alike.
