I like it overall but don’t necessarily agree with the ordering.

On smaller resolutions you have to scroll down to see the last items in the dropdown.

Taking this into account i think the sensible solution would be to put the more important things up in the list.

I hope most people agree with me that the new Marketing category and especially it’s Email Templates subcategory has always been a big chunk of the total sales made on themeforest and as a result is pretty important yet even so it is placed so low in the dropdown that I had problems spotting it out the first time after the change was made.

And the fact that it is preceded by the Blogging category which barely has files or the xcart subcategory of eCommerce which is empty at the moment makes no sense to me.

What I want to propose is to either move Marketing up ( right under WordPress if you ask me or at the very least change places with Blogging) and/or trim down some of the subcategories being shown that are not doing some well.

What is your opinion, does anyone agree?

Congratulations Bluz, very nice template, can’t wait to check out your BluzPanel :D
Thanks bitpub. But you can check it out only in the Wordpress version :P this file is the HTML version.

Dam for some reason I clicked on your featured file and thought it was the free file. I now see the free file and it’s cool as well :). I think I’ll see the panel soon though as I have a new project one of your WP files should fit just nice :D

Again, congratulations, well deserved!

Big companies main concern is to get their websites working in any environment (operating system, browser, javascript on/off etc ) not necessary to make the websites validate.

I have seen an presentation made by a yahoo front end designer and one of the ideas was progressive enhancement ( offering content and functionality depending on the users browser capability) and the second was the fact that they still support as low as Internet Explorer 4 ! and hacks are required to do this..

So rest assured that even if they don’t validate, those sites work in any browser. I find that better then saying that a website is valid but it doesn’t work in Internet Explorer 6…

Add my dislike to the border also – it adds nothing so why add it?

+1 Agreed.

What bugs me the most is the preview image resize.

For graphicriver items which have very long item previews it makes sense but for themeforest where the size is fixed it does not.

I usually try to keep to myself and respect the changes made but with this one I keep going back to my item previews and have the feeling they look horrible the way they are scaled down. The text is hard to read as well. I’m really afraid that it will hurt sales.

I hope this change is reverted or at least we get an official response on the matter

... I personally don’t like it.

With the item preview being scaled down because of the border, the item preview doesn’t look crisp anymore therefore having a negative affect on the presentation.

I also don’t see the point of it being there. Or if it must be there why can’t it be added without resizing the image?

I’m a little disappointed with the mouse mainly because it is too small for my hand. Precision isn’t the best possible as well but I think it is enough for what I need.

Sounds like mine… so although it looks good, I think I’ll pass this kit too…

Please DO post more feedback after some coding/Photoshop work. I’m looking to buy one too, but that’s not the feedback I was hoping for :)

Thanks!

Ok, I’m done coding for the day. My final assessment of the Logitech wireless Combo MK520 is that it is good overall and for 60 euros is a great deal. I like the way the keyboard buttons feel to the touch. The mouse is still a little small but its precision is acceptable.

I just bought an Logitech wireless Combo MK520 and am pretty happy with the kit.
How good is the mouse? I have a Logitech wireless kit (forgot the name, have it back in my hometown), but the mouse is CRAP ! (keyboard isn’t very nice either)

It is not the best out there but for 60 euro’s I don’t think you can get something much better.

I’m happy with the keyboard buttons – quality materials and they don’t have that annoying sound when pressed that very cheap ones have. I haven’t coded with it yet, I’ll have an long coding session tomorrow and write with some feedback.
