@INDUSTRYKIDZ There is a topic somewhere (possibly locked) that mentions all the updates authors and buyers have requested. I suggested they create a roadmap of them all to see what’s being considered, what’s being worked on etc.

Really we should just create a Trello board with all these, and people can join in and add cards in the appropriate headers.

It’s a shame because there are so many talented people here who are more than willing to pitch in a few hours to make the marketplaces better.

I’m not bashing Envato or anything, so don’t get me wrong, I would just love to see some more updates and not so many trival ones (like the change of the upload button, or the progress bars).

Don’t see that error at all, and I’m on iPhone 4S iOS 6.1.2

It’s slow as hell, then I see some numbers (black text on white background) and then it loads the navigation dropdown, with image background and 2 Percent Barber Shop logo.

I’d say it takes around 12 seconds to even begin loading the site, then an extra 4-5 seconds. This is on a 62mb down connection too, so nothing to do with my internet.

Hope this helps

Never going to happen, ever. I’ve personally seen this pop up in the forums a dozen times, and nothing ever comes from it. +1’ing it won’t help, requesting staff reply won’t help.

The only solution would be to include a link in your products download to a URL on your site, which the user would enter their email and license key and if not already on the system it will add them to a mailing list. That way you can target users who have bought a particular item.

So I’ve updated my item and created a banner.

Now, I’ve got an angry customer posting in my comments, and then when I reply, they are flagging it as inappropriate so it doesn’t display. Every damn comment.

Surely they shouldn’t be able to report an authors comments on their own item?

The issue is that this item used to rely on a free API, but now costs, and due to it being a jQuery item, if a buyer uses their own key on a site, their key can be stolen simple as.
Hello phpdude, I had the same issues back in 2012 with my Search Engine which was based on Bing’s free API service. After 4/5 months they migrated their API service to Azure and they limited the free API to 5,000 queries/month. So the best option is to notice your visitors that the script is based on an API, but it costs to get a key. Good luck with the sales ;-).

That sounds like a good plan, cheers buddy :)

if your concern is about someone stealing the key then why don’t you put a video preview instead of just deleting it?

The live preview is not the issue, I already run it through a PHP proxy so it doesn’t reveal any code.

Thanks for your reply KBRmedia. I think that’s probably the best way forward.

Howdy,

Hope this doesn’t break any rules (btw, we really need an authors forum), but one of my items now requires a paid-for API key, and considering it’s jQuery item it would mean the key would be visible and can be stolen, so as a result I’m going to have to withdraw the item from the marketplace.

My question is that, is it possible to keep the item up still, but disable purchasing of it. That way I can put a message as the description to say what has happened, rather than purchasers trying to find it, but a) can’t remember who built it so can’t get in touch with me, and b) posts in the forum. I’ve seen it a few times, and it’s happened to me once where all reference to the item has been removed so it was like it was never there. It’s annoying and frustrating.

TL;DR I will have to remove an item from CodeCanyon, but don’t want it to completely vanish. Is it possible to keep it up, but unable to purchase and hidden from searches/API/profile etc.
