Btw asking again, is there any changes made on item comment as pointed in original post? Is this thread just made to point the location change of upload button?
Yeah, now links posted by customers are styled with bold and bigger font size.
It was the first thing I checked for… personally I was convinced that it will not happen – I mean the url obscure, Envato doesn’t benefit from that – so they can’t even understand why it should be implemented.
This time, just expected permalinks and such things on comments. The reason is we can add few different buyer comment’s link on FAQ so that anyone with deep requests can be helped with multiple answers (for same question). TF and CC authors can understand this. Btw we have permalinks for forum posts, don’t know why?
Maybe putting links in comments is fixed/enhanced now?
edit: dooooh, didn’t see there was page 7 lol
1. I agree with most comments about the upload box – not really that needed.
2. There was a comment about a mobile dashboard – it would be nice to be able to access the latest comments (and post a reply) through the API , so we can integrate them in our mobile apps?
3. Small offtopic suggestion – move the sign out button or at least ask for confirmation on click. Most of the time I don’t refresh the dashboard, but click on my name / balance button, sometimes I miss
I hope this is just the first of many improvements that will come. A lot of good suggestions has been made throughout the comments in this thread.
Personally this doesn’t really make any difference for me. When I have an item ready for upload I will find the Upload feature I don’t think that it need to be placed at the very top of the Author Dashboard. This space could be used for better things.
This might be off topic, but I have three things that I really which that Envato would prioritize soon. I know this is only targeted towards Themeforest and Codecanyon, but we have been discussing this back and forth for more than 12 months in the forum, and we still don’t have a clear vision if anything has happened in reference to these topics.
- Automatic Update feature for WordPress themes (Themeforest) and WordPress plugins (Codecanyon).
I’m aware of that several authors have their own systems in place that serves updates, but the official answer from Envato is still that we are not allowed to deliver automatic updates to our customers.
We almost daily have customers asking us why we can’t deliver automatic updates. Why do they have to install plugins or themes by FTP or disabling, deleting and reuploading? We are in 2012 not 2001.
- Choose license per item uploaded
We have to can only opt-in for Extended License on all our items not individual items. It would be a great improvement if we could choose Regular or Extended License per item. It would give greater flexibility to how you want to offer your items to customers.
- Developer License
Almost every week we have customers asking for Developer Licenses for WordPress plugins. Or they ask for discount when purchasing multiple licenses.
Also the Extended License pricing on Codecanyon (specially WordPress plugins) is absurdly priced. It is only 5 x the item price. Look at a WordPress theme on Themeforest and its 50 x the price.
This means if you want to purchase a theme for your WordPress Multisite network you will pay around $2,000-$2500 for a theme, which I think is fair as you can run hundreds or thousands of sites from a WP MS installation.
However if you purchase some of the most popular WordPress plugins ($15 – $25 per plugin) you only pay $75-$125 for a plugin and then you can use it throughout your entire WordPress Multisite network, which could potentially be hundreds or thousands of websites.
We love the Envato Marketplace and we hope that Envato will continue to be the market leader in this field. We need someone to take action on the above and get some official answers.
12 months of waiting is enough!
BTW noticed that the colours across the marketplace are tweaked a bit. That, I like
for TF it’s already possible using API , no luck for CC though
I got an answer from support just a few days ago that we are not allowed to do it with Codecanyon (WordPress plugins).
That is great news that this is possible now on Themeforest for WordPress themes. Then there might be light at the end of the tunnel!
