Hi,

Just wondering how does the “popular files” page is generated as I thought my template would show up there, but it is not.

Thanks !

G

It seems to me that your file needs to have 12+ sales, not entirely sure though

Yeah I posted this question a couple of weeks ago and Jeffrey didn’t know the answer but development never spoke up….so I don’t know.

We prefer to keep a lid on the exact workings of the popular files page to reduce the chance of anyone trying to game the system for a bit of extra exposure.

Apologies for being a little bit iron curtain on the topic but we think it’s important for the buyers’ experience.

Yup, it’s 100% automated. fueled by magic.

The less we go near the page the better :)

I don’t think you’d need 12+ sales, because there are themes on there having just 10 sales.. Maybe it’s determined by the star ratings?
