Thanks, although it’s just a test at this point… full announcement over here, locking this thread so the conversation is in one place.

The first improvement is better!

I’m curious… Better how? Better for who? Better for what outcome?

Does that mean the free file will disappear?

Good question! For these tests, the free files shifted down the page as a full row showing the free files from all eight sites:

Hi folks, just a quick note that we’ve wrapped-up the first test and we’re now running a second test which emphasises featured items on the signed-in and signed-out versions of the VideoHive homepage.

It’s an ABC test, so there’s the existing (control) version and two variations. The first variation shows more featured items in a full row across the page. The second shows bigger featured items with embedded video players.

We also took this opportunity to add some missing links to the existing featured files archive. We’re linking from the home page and “All Items” menu on all eight sites, as well as in these VideoHive homepage tests.

Just like the last experiment: These are not final designs. There’s no shortage of great ideas for the home page, and we’d like to see quite a few of them make it into the next version. These tests help us prioritize our efforts and better understand the impact of each idea.

For those that are curious, here’s two screenshots:

I’ve found a bug. On the GR home page it is displaying a PD featured file of the week (called “beautiful girl in fairy forest”).

Thanks. I’m told it was an error by the Magical Featured Item Fairies, which was quickly corrected.

Just a small detail: the spinning loader icon is still your old logo :)

Thanks, added to the list :)

Are previews broken on items too? Especially on the main page of each marketplace. Also looks like editing a post is broken too. It only shows the textbox with no layout.

Could you post a screenshot of both of these (along with the browser/os, etc).

Great improvement! Thank you. What about logged in users? Is this only for new visitors?
If the test goes well, it’s highly likely we’d apply this to the signed-in home page too, but that’ll require a lot more fiddling with the signed-in layout (which is two-column at the top), so we excluded it from this initial test.
