Regarding Recommendations, as long as it doesn’t rely on sales number at any point, that’s safe.
...as buyers interact with an item, by viewing it, purchasing it or rating it highly, we accumulate these interactions into a level of measured excitement that tracks changes over time.
Make sure your system datetime is correct
Good news! Any chance to get a reply on #MBS-420-23760? 2 weeks and counting.
Whoops! Sorry about this!
It looks like we replied 9 days ago, although there was a problem forwarding this to the proper department.
I’ve assigned the ticket to myself and will be replying real soon- Christian
Hi Christian, thanks for quick reply. After 2 weeks I got a reply addressing the issue, but not entirely. I replied back to you. Would be great if we can get this done soon.

How about give us the option to use the site over https? As an author, I don’t mind getting the browser warning sometimes if the whole content isn’t loaded using https. I much rather have that warning instead of my cookies flying as plain text, and anybody can grab them.
dtbaker saidAs you might know, there’s an ongoing search experiment with insane sorting.
June 1st was the first day in almost 5 years where we didn’t make a single sale.
+1Could you please tell us more?
Notice this in the generated HTML code of any search page:
<meta content="100" name="WT.sales_boost_test" />
In my tests, the lower the content value, the crazy the sorting is. Sometimes is pretty stable, and some others changes. Specially when not logged in.
@dtbaker Thanks for the screenshots and explanations. Happens the same to me, but with other numbers
I think this behavior change is pretty weird. The only thing I can think of is this:
.- Search being updated and retrieving crazy sorting sometimes
.- Customers opening a lot Items pages looking for what they want (so your visits count are still the same) .- Customers end up buying something else
Would be great to know what other Items/pages they opened, per each conversion and session. Like have a list of the visited per each converting session, within a certain time frame. But that’s something only Envato staff can do.
Can you think of anything else?
