Unfortunately, I don’t think there will be an update soon…. Most probably the effects must be measured first by Envato with analitycs and data tools during a month at least, before being able to tell if this influences sales negatively or not.
I think all WP themes and plugins on the market should have a standard way of telling the user an update is available.
I also think so, I think this should be unified, standard for everybody…..
I think that every item on Envato Market should contain an automatic field named “version number” (like it has the “last updated” field). Then, this version number should be readable from Envato API and maybe the API should also have a method to read if an update is available or not….
I agree and that’s why I adapted a small PHP script to do this. It’s very easy to integrate in any plugin or theme.
I’m interested. Can you please give us some details about how it works? From where it reads the version number? I have clicked the getbutterfly link from github but it goes to a 404 page.
greenline saidThey said already working on it.
They have said that they are working to link back the live previews for the items which are themes, but the same is needed for codecanyon items too, or for other TF itmes, not only for themes: http://themeforest.net/forums/message/go_to/1291636
Because it’s already a week since the preview image does not point to live previews and there is still no change….could you please at least make the “Live Preview” button more visible?
I’m also using Sublime Text. Some time ago I used Eclipse (for more complicated projects) or Notepad++ (for simpler ones) but after seeing a thread here a couple of months ago, I have tried Sublime Text and since then, I’m using it. It’s a good choice, fast, stable, not memory consuming, tons of options, preferences or/and themes, code completions, cross-platform, extendable with plugins, lot of tutorials available, rename variables with ease, easily search/jump to anything, distraction-free mode and a lot of other great features.
Brackets on the other side…I have also tried Brackets. It’s not stable, a lot of sudden crashes. It does not support files with other encoding than UTF8. Live previews not always working…It has too many issues, it’s under development, I don’t think it’s very stable yet.
