Such a sad thing. Obviously a great comedian, but I always liked his dramatic roles best. This is probably my favorite:

Nice visual update :)

One thing I’ve never understood..

Use in a free end product (more than one end user allowed)

Why does this option exist? Basically the way this is written, I can create a free WordPress theme, purchase an extended license for any plugin on CodeCanyon, and then distribute my custom theme along with the CodeCanyon product for free to the entire world.

Long time somehow disconnected, now i think i’m having a huge déjá vu, VF & DS discussing about homepage exposure. :)

I’m just wondering why we can’t get more exposure for FlashDen? It’s not even listed in the main menu anymore! :D

Seeing the new layout for the first time tonight. Like I said before, the new big search is awesome!

Maybe it’s just my monitor, but the small contrast between sections makes the content hard to take in. Here’s a GreaseMonkey script that makes the page’s sections much more easier on the eye (at least for me).

// ==UserScript==
// @name        envato
// @namespace   envato
// @include     http://codecanyon.net/*
// @include     http://themeforest.net/*
// @version     1
// @grant       none
// ==/UserScript==

jQuery(document).ready(function() {

    jQuery('<style />').html(

        '.cj {background-color: #333}' + 
        '.cj h2 {color: #FFF}' + 
        '.cj p {color: #CCC}' + 
        '.cj img {border: 1px solid white}' + 
        '.marketing-ad {border: 1px solid #DDD}' + 
        '.home-section__announcement {margin-bottom: 25px}'

    ).appendTo(jQuery('head'));

    // Move New Items to top, and apply contrast colors to alternating sections
    var whites = jQuery('.page-section--white');
    whites.eq(1).addClass('cj').insertAfter(jQuery('#content').children('div').children('div').eq(0)).find('h2').text('New Stuff');
    whites.eq(whites.length - 2).addClass('cj');

    // Alternative titles
    jQuery('.page-section--grey').eq(0).find('h2').text('Staff Picks');
    jQuery('.page-section--grey').eq(1).find('h2').text('Free Stuff');
    jQuery('#followed-items').addClass('cj').find('h2').text('Authors you Follow');

    // Featured Author section has lots of dead space, show 6 items instead of 3
    var featuredAuthor = jQuery('.home-section__item-grid--featured');
    featuredAuthor.children('li').clone().appendTo(featuredAuthor);

});

In general i don’t like the new homepage and I have also a big problem, the “Just For You” section is full of animals, to be precise i have 47 animals :) ( cats, dogs and horses ) from photodune and 3 items from other markeplaces. I follow various authors from codecanyon, themeforest, graphicriver, photodune, audiojungle and seems that if a photodune author that i follow publish 50 photo of animals the result is a zoo in the homepage, this is clearly not what i want in that section.

This is a great observation. Currently, if you follow any author who uploads in bulk, your “Just for You” section suddenly isn’t that great. This section should behave like the “New Items” section instead, where only one new item from the author is shown within a certain time range.

Fun to see the homepage changing. The huge search looks fantastic! :)

Some feedback:

- “New” might be better written as “Recently Added”.

- Consider separating the sections by alternating light/dark backgrounds and the sections will pop much better.

- Reconsider the placement of the features (almost all other sections deserve more exposure than “Staff Picks”).

Additional suggestions for tightening things up:

  • Combine the “Featured Items” and “Featured Author” into one row.

  • Combine “Just for You” and “Free Files” into one row (with just a single free file from the currently selected marketplace, files from other marketplaces are probably wasted real-estate).

  • Rethink the bottom 3 banner ads. For example, “Most Wanted” campaigns are only relevant to authors—but the homepage should be tailored for customers. I’d consider changing these boxes into “Featured File”, “Featured Author” and “Free File” (and leave them at the bottom of the page of course)

My favorite part is the “Risks and Challenges” lol

It might not be that good. It’s my first potato salad.

^ Here’s how I’d interpret this:

You can only upload the product to a single domain, then you can redirect to this domain however you choose, from wherever you choose.

P.S. BestUserNameEver is certainly in the HOF of usernames here! :D
