Thanks guys :D But the topic isn’t about my sale, it’s about Envato statements that aren’t showing but license was purchased.

You’re right Adam, sorry for the OT.

I expect that the devs figured the difference in price was self-explanatory, but if you are suggesting a change to the Envato statements, would you like me to move this over to Site Feedback where it will be more likely to be considered?

Is it possible to determine who has purchased an extended license?
I don’t think so…
That’s too bad…I was wondering about the possibility of offering more hands-on support to buyers who purchased extended licenses.

If they were to email you via your contact form you would be able to tell which license they purchased – but otherwise the information is not available for buyer privacy.

The other thing would be to look into the API – but I’m sure if it’s possible to look up that info the buyer would still have to initiate/approve it with their API key.

Are you using a custom menu walker? Also, make sure your Cufon is targeting the innermost element – most likely the anchor element (as opposed to the li

I think that’s a very good idea. I think it also helps to “remind” buyers that they need to buy multiple licenses if they will be using a product on multiple sites. Unfortunately I think I too many buyers just go through the process without ever realizing that their purchase does not entitle them to unlimited usage.

I also wanted to point out that there may be a “Multi Use” license in the works ( see http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/authors-yet-another-license-q/37970?page=1#357804 )

Would you like me to move this to Site Feedback, where is is more likely to be considered by the staff I believe? I know it is relevant to All Marketplaces so I’ll leave this up to you, pezflash.

UPDATE :

I figured out a solution to this issue. It’s a bit involved, but if anyone is interested let me know and I’ll try to do a writeup when I get a chance :)

What about image width/height attributes? Probably won’t be XHTML valid, but it solves your peoblem.

I appreciate the suggestion :) Unfortunately, like I said in the OP, using img attributes to size the image (a) changes aspect ratios and (b) doesn’t help situations like images in Nivo Slider (which is what I am trying to use the images for). Thanks though!

Well, for anyone who’s interested, I tracked down the code that constrains the image resizing (disallows upscaling).

//From function image_resize_dimensions() line 345-346 of wp-includes/media.php
$new_w = min($dest_w, $orig_w);
$new_h = min($dest_h, $orig_h);

If we were to make this change the limitation would be removed:

$new_w = $dest_w; //min($dest_w, $orig_w);
$new_h = $dest_h; //min($dest_h, $orig_h);

Unfortunately, there is no appropriate action or filter hook to make this adjustment from a theme or plugin. I guess until WP offers this as an option there is no great solution here. I might try using a similar filter to the one mentioned by OrganicBee to generate the appropriate size if necessary.

You could possibly use Jquery to do it so it doesnt distort the image http://plugins.jquery.com/plugin-tags/image-resize

also for a wordpress reference http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/3.1/wp-includes/post-thumbnail-template.php theres a filter on line 70 that may do what you want in a “hack”

EDIT : and line 62

Thanks for the info. I may have to end up going with a jQuery solution as a last resort.

The filter on line 70 might help, but I’m hoping to find a way to generate the larger image in the first place (on media upload) rather than adjusting things when it’s ready to output.

Gonna start digging through the media upload code now :)

@glossycat, totally understand where you’re coming from and I agree with you as far as those situations go – so no worries. Just didn’t want to give mkessler the wrong idea about this place :)

Has anyone come across a way of scaling up / “upsizing” WordPress Post Thumbnails? My understanding is that, by default, WordPress will only generate the registered image sizes for an image upload if the original image is larger than the registered image size.

That is, if you upload a 600×400 image, and you have a registered image size that is 800×600 named “full-size”, the full-size image will not be generated – and therefore when you retrieve the image at full-size, expecting an 800×600, you get a 600×400 instead.

I’ve been thinking about this, and while I think upscaling is a bad idea from a graphical point of view (quality deterioration), I think from a user’s perspective this would be helpful (many users don’t want to deal with image resizing – they just want it to “work”).

I know timthumb can handle upscaling, but I want to use WP’s built in functionality for a variety of reasons. I also know I could scale the images via img tag sizes or CSS , but that (a) changes aspect ratios and (b) doesn’t help situations like images in Nivo Slider.

Anyway, if anyone has come across a clever way to enable WP thumbnail upscaling I’d love to know!

Thanks!

Chris
