Just a thought I had today while browsing around. It would be great if, especially on the homepage, there were category icons (or just text) so we know what a design is before we click it.

For example, when I’m browsing the homepage thumbnails, I don’t know if what I’m seeing is a Wordpress theme, an HTML template or a PSD file without clicking through to the item’s page.

Just an idea!

No we don’t. We will miss all the fun then.

btw. someone could land on a category page that wasn’t at first interesting for him, but then maybe consider spending some cash on some cool files found there.

Maybe, but it’s also just as frustrating when you see a great design and hope it’s a Wordpress theme when it ends up just being a PSD . Not that PSDs are bad, but it’d be nice to know beforehand :)

I agree. At least for PSD items, I think it should be made a little clearer that the item is just the design. I can imagine quite a few people will buy an item on impulse thinking it’s a coded design. (In fact, I almost done it a couple of times).

We designer could actually do something to tell the visitors if the theme is HTML , PSD or any other categories. I see some people actually have a text or icon on their thumbnail to tell what it is. Collis’s Real Estate is a really good example.

I think I should start making my thumbnail to make it easier for the visitors!

I agree with the OP as well. Perhaps when the larger image shows on hover, there could be a small text somewhere if it is a psd/wordpress/html etc.

I agree, that would add another extra portion of usability to this site :)
