since there’s the new and really needed new Notification function – great thx envato – I’ve built a small autoimage fo your items where you’re able to let your customers know about the new function
you just have to use an image tag with a src containing the ItemId (found in the URL of your item) to include in your item description
i.e. for the item “AJAX Contact Form” with the ID 50846 you have to link to http://envato.homac.at/a2gn50846.jpg and you’ll get
– the used thumbnail will always be the current one
the syntax is
http://envato.homac.at/a2gn[#itemId].jpgwhere [#itemId] is the ID of your item
the width for the use of the image in the forum is not really ideal, but it fits exact in the item details block
don’t know if it’s usefull for some authors
currently the images won’t be cached, but if there are some authors using this img I’ll cache them and refresh it maybe once a day
let me know if you like to use it or if you have any other suggestions
Oh, I like that, thats quite cool. what language did you make this in PHP? and how long did it take. I’ve wanted to do dynamic based images before but just never got how they quite work.
a hint for the ratings would be a nice thing too, you’re right
aaranmcguire saidyes, it’s PHP and took an hour approx. (incl. the graphic sources, because initially I was intented to make the graphics for my items each per hand)

@themac Just sent you a email (via your profile page)..
This is very handy mac! I’ll use it!
Schöne Grüße nach Wien!
just updated the dynamic graphics to fit the current lookalike and added the rating infos
example of the new dynamic image with itemid 154703
the colors fit the item descriptions, just take a look into one of my items to see it in live-actionusage (just use yout itemid instead of 154703
<img src="http://envato.homac.at/a2gn154703.jpg" alt="" />
Great idea themac, thanks.
I know, the new light version of the marketplace is, let’s say kind of ugly
But I’ve updated the a2gn graphics to fit into the new environment
AND the generated graphics will be cached, so if there any API troubles, the image won’t be touched and will be still avail
the images will be generated on first call or item udate
