Dear Envato, The Facebook Themes Category only lists Flash Projects, and since its a generic category it should include both Flash,and Flash Builder projects alike.

Its only fair that us Flex Devs have the same fair chance as everyone else on here, but the categories don’t work in such a way to allow having both listed at the same time.

So i came up with these solutions.

Solution 1

Adding both to a dropdown would be a workaround.

If this fix isn’t possible

The Solution 2

http://activeden.net/searches?term=Facebook+Template&type=files

Using a search string like such, would allow the listing of both types.

If these two solutions would not be possible, then it simply looks like Flash Builder FB themes are being hidden on purpose.

I would love to hear some feedback.

From a business perspective, it only makes perfect sense.

Flex or Flash… it’s all the same to the end-user. All they see is a Flash Facebook page so there is really no reason Flex shouldn’t be included in the Facebook category.

BTW hasn’t this been brought up before a while back? Was there even an explanation then as to why?

I agree!!! To be honest, it really seems like it was done on purpose.

Kinda Like Steve Jobs shunned Adobe Flash from the iPhone. Flex seems be shunned from the Facebook Themes menu item.

The explanation was that Flex is a separate category from Flash but even then, its as simple as adding a new link to the Menu.

I really can’t seem to figure out why that would be so difficult and have yet to get an explanation on that.

Thats why I opened this thread.

See the problem is , all the exposure for the Facebook Themes comes from the Top Menu Item, and ever since that was added to the menu, our sales have dropped 90% because it only lists Flash projects.

All we want is a fair chance, and unfortunately it doesn’t look like were going to get one.

Unfair marketplace practices are not very good for business.

The Solution #2 should be easy to implement but will not show the order by date. Anyway I don’t think any staff here will take time to do even slight changes. Looks like non of the staff have reason to care about Flash marketplace ;)

Adding a <li>Flash</li> <li>Flex</li> to the menu is so simple, it takes less energy than breathing!!!

Whats crazy about what you said is that they cared enough to add the Facebook Themes menu item , but didn’t care enough to make it include all the Facebook Themes.

Hey Codempire, Your Solution #1 is good … All AD will have to do is create a facebook category under Flex.

I sincerely hope that AD will do this.
