Why does tweaking the search have to seem so complicated and need such a laborious procedure for having better filtering? All that needs to be done is to add a secondary filtering option for date uploaded, like so:

\\

So if you sort by “ratings” or “sales” you can also narrow the search down by time frame of upload.

It’s not really rocket science – it’s a simple yet effective and fair solution .. just use date filtering like YouTube / Behance / Dribbble and similar sites. That one drop down will be a game changer for the entire marketplace – essentially every search result or category can be sorted by time frame of upload to give a ‘mini popular sales or ratings’ result. This will really help buyers find not only top sellers but new content that is selling well or rated high.

I would really like to see a more detailed search filter where I could decide what I want to show.

Something like this right? It would make sense to add this, and one would think Envato would’ve thought about it by now.. but for some reason after 8 years they won’t – probably something to do with disturbing the current ‘Envato Ecosystem’

For now it’s easier to find ‘new stuff’ and ‘popular’ items but with 5 million items – there’s a huge chunk in the middle which is harder to find with the current filters.

If Envato wants to be a serious player and follow in the footsteps of Google, Adobe, Behance, Dribbble etc.. they should LEARN from them and add proper date orientated filters like all of these sites use – it’s just common sense.

And because Envato hasn’t added this filter we get threads like this over and over again, because people just can’t find stuff easily, and it’s only going to get worse as the marketplaces continue to grow – so it’s inevitable to add this feature so might as well do it now – time to face reality.

Almost ready to upload my first item to GR :) can anyone tell me on average how long the review takes on GR – I see stuff moves pretty fast on the new items so want to time it right.

Thanks!

I posted this in a similar thread, which might be helpful..


Well since the glorious invention of Flat Design, now anyone can design a website with basic knowledge of PhotoShop.

You will need..

  • A Grid layout to work with… google Bootstrap or 960 PSD grids
  • iPhone and Mac related mock ups
  • A pack of free resource vector icons (make sure they’re allowed for commercial purposes)
  • Placeholder imagery featuring other digital artists work (make sure you have permission)
  • Muted grays and pastel colour palette
  • Helvetica Fonts, or anything that was ever used on Apple iOS
  • Design with responsive in mind so when designing your theme, pretend your desktop monitor is a very large iPhone screen

  • And remember with Flat Design, keep it minimal, keep it simple, don’t fuss about body copy (no one reads that stuff anymore – it’s all about the icons and images these days), and big chunky buttons is always better.

    Good luck :)

    Yeh I get the name, but why is it a sub-domain of Envato… Sites like ThemeForest, GraphicRiver etc are their own domain and became well known on the web not necessarily because they’re part of Envato, but the content they offer.

    What is clear though is Envato is trying to merge it’s brand name across all it’s marketplaces, like with the removal of the site switcher… I think what they’re trying to do is follow in the footsteps of Google, Adobe etc where everything falls under the umbrella of “Envato”.

    It’s a good idea in the long term, but I still think they should focus more on each marketplace and making them better, they’re all in serious need of a revamp.

    All these name changes and additions relating to the Envato brand don’t really do any improvements for each marketplace or the community, they’re more superficial for the Envato brand.

    I won’t be surprised if all marketplace eventually become a sub-domain of Envato.. like themes.envato.com

    The name “Envato Studio” is cool but the sub domain studio.envato.com doesn’t seem like a logical choice plus it’s flipped around so its tricky to get the URL right first time without a Google search.. What’s next theme.envato audio.envato photo.envato ? :|
