Like Smartik said, you can’t do that with PHP alone. You need an external library with such capabilities, an example is ffmpeg.
That is enormous. Congratulations!
This happened to me also and was really annoying at that time. Indeed it makes sense to show only the last one to prevent spam. Soft disable won’t work as the original publish date will remain. The quicker you move on, the better.
I can’t help but feel that things are taken too far when I read comments about people needing to be fired, that Envato needs to hire ‘proper’ designers and that our next change will be a switch to Comic Sans.
I believe whoever said that tried to help you guys. When you have such high design standards on Themeforest and other marketplaces people expect the same in return, instead you came out with this horrible change. Sadly it seems that you have completely forgot what happened in recent previous design changes with the triple/quadruple cluttered headers and such.
Our primary motivation for the change was to brighten our background colour from the murky grey and make our website a more welcoming place.
I fail to understand how is white more welcoming than the other color if it’s not properly implemented, or how is white more welcoming than a light gray? I feel like these changes are made for the sake of change.
Our secondary motivation was to increase the size of our font to make content more readable. These days a 16 pixel body font size is in no way too large for a website with a contemporary design, and for good reason: it makes reading easier.
If readability was so important then you could have chosen a smoked white background with large font. I can’t believe you guys decided to push out this change in its current form.
The new change is clearly a big issue as everyone complains so it should be addressed accordingly.
