OMG. Featured Item Icons in Item’s Details now changed to new ones as well….

Slowly but surely creeping in..

“Since the feedback was so positive, let’s go ahead and roll out phase two where our new beloved ‘icons’ replace every other visual asset in the marketplaces!”

I am not 100% sure but i think this is ok.

I believe some authors openly admit using one account with exclusive author opt-in, and then another account where they sell their item non-exclusive.

I think as long as you keep it non-malicious, like you said, you should be allowed. My apologies if i am wrong!

Will you keep bumping until this thread is locked like it was a lot of times before? I don’t have nothing against you, but don’t you already know that this is not permitted?
Well, in the past, I have overbumping my own threads (yep, my fault). But now on I have done It once in 2 days to keep it up to date. So I guess it’s not considered it as spamming or self promotion or anything. Anyway I haven’t violate any forum rules: http://themeforest.net/community/community_guidelines . If you are not personally interested in this thread, should you just skip it? There is lot of collaboration threads in the forums and they are permitted.

Trying to skip it but your ‘bump’ keeps putting it in front of my eyes. And yes, even if not against the guidelines, it definitely feels like self-promotion – and i don’t think it makes anyone want to partner with you.

At least try to be subtle and write some text like “no one interested? I can offer an interesting commission split” or something, rather than just bumping the bump out of your own thread..

You need to bring a few more features / visual uniqueness to the table. Right now you are using the default bootstrap styles with just the submit button styled.

Also, your button needs some padding left and right and i would suggest a different font.

Work on your vertical rhythm – the elements are not flowing properly vertically, you need consistent padding / margin top-bottom throughout the template.

I am not interested in working in partnership but i thought i’d give you a few tips, having been in the same situation a while ago..

Good luck!

No worries!

Let me know if you find a server-side angularJS solution that takes user-input values and stores them in Sass variables, then compiles in CSS in real time. That would be oh so kick-ass. :)

IF I export “custom CSS”, it would be a lot of manual jQuery work, not something I will be able to reuse from one template to another. If only there was a way, to bind data from angular directly to SASS files, and then compile the whole SASS file to a CSS file on the fly .. ( does something like this exists? ..lol )

I was thinking of exactly that right after my last post. That would be awesome – having an interface to collect variables data and then make the Sass files compile in CSS with the user-selected variables..

It has to be possible though!

This looks a bit like what we’re talking about, with LESS though – http://pikock.github.io/bootstrap-magic/app/index.html#!/editor

Not allowed to post links to items here, but there is a plugin on codecanyon called “skin switcher” by PixelDima that is really neat. It doesn’t save the changes out of the box (it’s meant to be used for preview items) but i am sure this can be implemented.. There is also a WP theme by CosmoThemes called Fast Forward that has an angular live customiser.. pretty cool!
But I am guessing, there is no way to get clean HTML out of these customization? I am guessing it would be hard specially with angular js and how it pollutes the html.

I guess you could produce an “export custom CSS” out of the options selected, a bit like the HTML e-mail template builders you can find in the Marketing category of TF.

I don’t necessarily agree that angularJS pollutes the HTML, if used properly. Sure it adds a ng-app and a couple of other ng-stuff, but i think it does a great job at allowing you to place most the logic / functionality somewhere else.
