Hey everyone, I’ve just pushed an update (v1.0.2) to improve the description modifying abilities.

There are now 4 ways to update an item description:

  1. Using the “Prepend Description” attribute name, you can add text or HTML to the beginning of the item description.
  2. Using the “Append Description” attribute name, you can add text or HTML to the end of the item description.
  3. Using the “Remove Description” attribute name, you can remove text or HTML from anywhere within the item description (will only remove the first occurrence it finds).
  4. Using the “Replace Description” attribute name, you can remove text or HTML from anywhere within the item description and replace it with new specified text or HTML (will only replace the first occurrence it finds).  When entering the attribute value, simply insert the text “[REPLACEWITH]” in between the text you’d like to remove, and the new text you’d like to replace it with.  For example, “Text to replace[REPLACEWITH]New text”.

More info and tips have been added to the help page within the extension.

To make sure you’re on the latest version just go to your manage extensions page in Chrome and click the button in the top right “Update extensions now”.

Hey, sounds very interesting, especially for update new attributes! Is it also possible to add some default text in the description field, but not erase what has already been written? That is, can you add content to the beginning or end of the description? Thanks!

Yes, for updating the Item Description, there are two special attribute names that can be used. By entering either “Prepend Description” or “Append Description” as the attribute name, you can add text or HTML to the beginning or end of the item description, respectively.

If the given text is already found anywhere within the description, it considers the description to be “validated”, to prevent double-adding the text.

Note you can also use ”\n” within the attribute value text to designate any line breaks.

There’s some more info around this on the “Help” page within the extension.

If you have any other questions or suggestions let me know :)

Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a new tool I created recently to help authors update our portfolios with new attribute information (such as the recently added footage and music attributes), but I thought it might generally come in handy for all authors in one way or another.

Introducing the Item Updater, a Chrome extension that let’s you systematically set and update the attribute values across any number of your Envato Market items, easily and automatically.

The Item Updater will also optionally use the provided attribute values and apply them as defaults on the item upload page if you choose. This can save loads of time and effort in particular when submitting a large batch of files with similar attributes.

It’s free to install and use from the Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/item-updater-for-envato-m/aphjbcgcmimimmdmmbokaedjmabgdpoj

Hope you find this helpful as I have!  Please let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues.  Enjoy :)

Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a new tool I created recently that may help you update your portfolio with the YouTube Content ID attributes, and more.

Quick tips for adding YouTube Content ID attributes and HTML snippet

For adding the Content ID details to your items you would enter something like this:

Attribute Names

Prepend Description
YouTube Content ID Registered
YouTube Content ID Administered By

Attribute Values

<a href="https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/204484680"><img src="http://audiojungle.sm.s3.amazonaws.com/images/ContentID.png" /></a>\n\n
Yes
AdRev

Note: The ”\n\n” after the snippet text will put a blank line between the snippet and the rest of your description for nicer spacing.

Vocals Validation

One other thing to look out for, if you have older items that haven’t had the “Vocals” attribute set yet, the item edit form will not validate and will be unable to submit the update for those items. To ensure the Item Updater works here, simply do the following:

  1. Add the Vocals attribute name to the list, and enter N/A as it’s corresponding value.
  2. Make sure the “Overwrite Existing Attribute Values” setting is unchecked/disabled.

This means it will select the “No Vocals” checkbox for any items where the Vocals attribute is missing/unset, while items that already have existing Vocals attribute values (e.g. Lead Vocals, Vocal Samples, etc) will remain unchanged.

Hope you find this helpful as I have!  Please let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues.  Enjoy :)

Hey Everyone!

Just letting you all know PreviewPal has been optimized to work with the new Add to Cart button feature on the results page.

To make more room for the add to cart button, the “download preview” button has been moved to the new thumbnail hover bar, similar to the new “live preview” button on ThemeForest and CodeCanyon:

As some folks have requested, using PreviewPal will now also add a volume control slider to the AudioJungle item page player:

Enjoy!

Hey everyone, just wanted to share the latest update!

While the primary purpose is still enhanced accessibility and naming of preview file downloads, version 1.5 now has some new tweaks and experimental features, including an audio waveform player for both the AudioJungle list view and item pages!

As always it’s available for free on the Chrome Web Store, so let me know how it works for you, and enjoy :)

I’d like to nominate this beautiful new AE trailer by OrpheusFX along with some truly magical music by Mat Steiner. That is you singing on it right Mat? ;)

Hey Themers!

I’ve got an idea/need for a particular microniche theme to throw into the mix:

The Niche: Education / E-Learning

The Microniche: Webinars

This would be a site to host and market educational webinar videos, maybe with a nice landing home page / call-to-action for registration, bio page about the presenter, and pay-to-access private content. Maybe you would be able to pay for access to a single webinar, or pay to access the entire site. Some of the course-management and e-learning themes out there could work, but I feel are a bit too big/complex for these purposes.

Just an idea!

Hey everyone!

You may have noticed recently that the preview file naming had gone back to the generic “preview” naming. This was due to a recent Chrome browser update that introduced some cross-domain precautions that was incompatible with the Amazon S3 media file URLs.

I just wanted to let everyone know I have fixed this issue with the extension, so automatic preview file naming is working again 100%, across all marketplaces! It’s available for free on the Chrome Web Store.

Downloaded preview files be automatically named [market] _ [author] _ [title] _ [id] by default so you won’t lose track of the files, and you can further customize this in the extension options page, including:

  • [marketplace] – The full marketplace name (e.g. “AudioJungle”, “ThemeForest”)
  • [market] – The abbreviated marketplace name (e.g. “AJ”, “TF”, “VH”)
  • [author] – The author of the item
  • [title] – The title of the item
  • [id] – The unique ID number of the item
  • [maincat] – The main category of the item (e.g. “Music”, “StockFootage”)
  • [category] – The full category of the item (e.g. “Music-Corporate-Motivational”)

Happy browsing!
