I just don’t get you guys, we need a filtering system, search alone isn’t that helpful, for example if i want to find a theme do you really think that my only parameter will be for example one page?

No… i have to define whole range of things to narrow my options, and since this is nearly impossible, the biggest number of customer in my opinion just goes to most popular or new items, most sales etc. goes trough maybe 5 pages of items and done…

Maybe this is totally off topic but we are screaming for this option for ages now. I mean i would understand if you had like 5 devs and they would implement one feature by one…

ah sorry, just venting out a bit… keep up to good work.

Cheers

Thanks Anps, I feel your pain too – having tried to find rather specific things on the marketplace, I can say it isn’t… “optimal” :)

We ARE working on it though, so expect some changes in this area, and keep the ideas flowing! There are a few things which need to happen first before we can start providing this functionality, but that work is well under way:


There is a very similar change going in in the next day or two to move attribute browsing from sphinx to elasticsearch. The fix will be deployed at the same time as that change goes in.

whatever is going on is not working for me at least… longest period without sales. almost 10 days from the last one. i’m here since august 2012, with 280 sales and more than 150 items. since december 2012 i never sold less then 10 items per month, and during the last months i increased up to 15-25 per month. now 2 sales in 14 days. obviously something is wrong here…

When last weekend there is something happened in search terms. Like everything turned back. This monday and tuesday i got 19 sales in a row. Like 3 months ago. I checked search feature, then i saw it has featured like 3 months ago.

Then everything is fine for you, but i got 1-2 sales in a week day. I am a newcomer too.

I only make files for hobby. But there is some people here living by envatosalary.

Best regards.

Burak.

Sales are above normal for me but most of my traffic comes from Google and doesn’t rely on the internal search as much. I can see how the internal search can really affect photodune, videohive and audiojungle though.

The Devs seem to be working hard to tweak it just right and I’m sure they’ll get there. I appreciate they are communicating and accepting blame for stuff that was broken or not right, and then stepping up to fix what’s broken. Thanks guys!

While Envato developers are improving the search system, feel free to use the search and filtering system on Marketopia. :)

@WebSmacker – A user is clearly asking for a filtering system, and there is an API application that he can use. In one single line, I said while Envato developers are improving the search system, you can use that application. And it was our only forum post in the last 7 days. Is it how you define spamming?
