For god’s sake.
I’m on the envato sites every day and have purchased a lot of themes. I have NEVER clicked the ‘buy now’ button in the header bar.
First thing I do when I click live preview? CLOSE THE HEADER FRAME . Normally? TOO SLOW , NOW I HAVE TO CLOSE THE AUTHOR ’S VERSION OF THE FRAME .
Such a waste of time. I KNOW WHERE I CAN BUY THE THEME .
Please. Launch live previews without the frame.
At least it should allow respnsive themes to work.
I am in favor. The header does mess up with the tiny functionalities which can cost you a customer.
I don’t replace the frame, as I consider it useless. I always close the live preview frame and I consider my buyers do the same. If they came as far as seeing the item live, then they might already know where to buy it from.
+1, hate the frame too. What is the reason if preview always opens in a new tab? Or please, add at least another button or a setting in account to disable that frame.
Actually, i concur. I wonder what the stats are for the “Buy now” button, though.
+1 for removing it. It’s more annoying than helpful.
The preview frame serves a good purpose. When people visit the preview by clicking on a link from outside the marketplaces, it tells them where they can buy the item.
But showing this frame when someone visits the preview from inside the marketplaces has never made any sense.
The simple fix is to add a url param. JS example below. I’m sure it’s just as simple in Rails.
if(document.URL.search(“frommarketplace=true”) !== -1) addTheFrame();
