Whoa, so much analysis on the changes on the front page :)

Not all people use this homepage to see the new items.

For instance, to check daily the new items, personally I go to Themeforest -> All Items because from there I can see also the ratings, the sales and I can click easily the preview button without going through the items details page.

True, but removing those visible category links still reduces exposure. What is most valuable to selling is visibility. If buyers can’t see your thumb, they won’t click on it – they’re most likely to click on something they can see that catches their eye. The more buyers have to click to find your item, the less chance of a sale. Might seem trivial but with 1000’s of buyers clicking and purchasing daily it adds up.

Search for “church” sort by “sales” and here is what you have: http://themeforest.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&order_by=sales&term=church&page=1

Only 8 of the themes have church theme functionality (sermons) . I suppose this is the case for most of the niche categories. If sorting by sales is often used, then the search obviously doesn’t bring quality results.

It’s not search by sales, it’s search by tags. These are really really important in the search system and all items that appear for church have a “church” tag.

We don’t need to remove “new items” section. We just need proper “space” handling. IMHO the old version of the home page was far better considering “space usage”.

I totally agree with you! The spacing was a lot better on the old version of the home page.

@justinfrench is it too hard to put categories links back and make a test so we can see if our sales get better? Is to too hard to hear from us and take our comments into account?
Sorry if I wasn’t clear in previous replies, but yes, we will (at least for now) chang it back to visible links instead of a drop-down. I don’t know exactly when, but soon!

Hi Justin,

I’m curious if you guys are gonna bring those buttons back or decided to leave it as it is.

Thanks,

Bogdan

We’ll still bring them back for sure, it’s just been hard to get to it with a lot of stuff happening around the birthday and a lot of new stuff shipping, sorry for the delay!

New page classes broke my previous GreaseMonkey (script applies alternating bg colors to sections for easier readability). Here’s the update:
