hi – in everyone’s tests, what’s the Fastest cache plugin: w3 Total Cache vs WP Super Cache? (esp. on avada theme)

I like using gtmetrix.com for speed tests, google is ok too.

thanks!

hi – I’ve searched but haven’t found a wp plugin to do comment show/hide like this:

http://jeffwalker.com/blog/

does anyone have anything like this? It’s a good feature (and would likely be a high-selling plugin), to be able to a) toggle show/hide wp comments on a blog post and b) display # of comments like on that site.

its’ the part in grey bar under video that shows # of comments and when you click on it, opens up comment area, like accordian

why would any legitimate buyer need more than 50 downloads? I’d limit it to 5 myself; and auto-reset with updates, for those assets (like TF themes, or codecanyon updates, or wp plugins).

you buy it, you download it to your hard drive, you’re done. only pirates would want unlimited/ridiculous access levels. personally i’ve never downloaded anything of 1000+ purchases, more than a few times (and that’s just for updates).

agree that should be in the tos/contract if it’s not, makes sense

it’s smart to have download limits; legitimate buyers at most would need 20 downloads in 2-3 years. i’ve bought over 1,000+ things here and never had any issues

Talking as a buyer here, I don’t think i bought as much the last 6 months as I used to do…

What I am seeing is that the variety in the last 6 months ( in general, there are some exceptions ) is not realy there. All designs are flat have a parallax background , animations and come in different colors. Looks like all the reviewers like is those mass appeal cookie cutter themes and more unique ones get rejected.

Themeforest used to be a site where i got a lot of new ideas and either bought the template to use or bought the template to show my support for the author but lately its all the same

+1 this; also it seems a lot more mediocre/so-so stuff across marketplaces is being approved than was the case 2 years ago; I’d recommend dramatically increasing quality standards to get Quality vs quantity… “more so-so stuff from newbie authors” does not a compelling marketplace make. I’m busy and don’t want to search through hundreds of items to find 1-2 gems.

The challenge for established authors too (esp. VH) is with so many new people submitting content, exposure is lower for top-quality content since it’s lost in a sea of daily new submissions. I used to buy a ton of top-quality AE templates on VH, but not much recently since top authors understandably not as motivated to put dozens of hours of work into a masterpiece that drops off page-1 listing the next day.

In earlier years, they’d get 3-4 days of first-page exposure. As submissions increase, their exposure/sales decline since their top quality projects quickly get lost in a flood of new daily submissions by so-so authors. I’d vote ‘increase quality standards a lot’ to attract back top buyers like myself (and motivate top authors to return). hope that helps…

thx to felt_tips years ago for tip re SSD, I bought one for main o/s (samsung) and it’s a huge productivity booster; faster w7 boot, program launches and more. likely good idea re more ssds for cache/project files, smart idea.

i did read somewhere that multiple reads/writes to SSDs shorten their lifespan, so my main o/s, on SSD, I seldom write to, using usb external drive for project assets and internal ide for cache

Just like you can report comments there should be a “report rating” button that dumps the rating into a queue and an envato staff member looks them over and decides if the rating is legit or not.
