Here’s the thing: you’re trying to charge for a unit but you don’t sell in that unit. That’s not only over complicated to implement technically, but it’s hella confusing for the customer.
Think of a similar situation like buying cereal. You buy cereal by the box. Maybe it’s 12 ounces and it costs $4. The price per pound is about $5.33 but that’s just supplemental info. It’s not the price and you never pay by the pound because you can’t rip apart boxes in the grocery store.
You should treat price per square meter as an attribute. It’s just supplemental info for the customer. It has no bearing on the transaction quantity.
What are the “levels” of documentation rating?
I’ve only ever seen “Well Documented” and it seems everyone has that. So doesn’t that make the info null because nobody is special?
You won’t be able to screen URLs. Users will just type xyzhttp://google.com or google[dot]com to get around a half-hearted screening mechanism.
The core problem is authors need the ability to police the comments because it is their support channel. Envato is growing too fast to manage user requests. We’ve all experienced this. They want transparency between buyers and authors though, which is a good thing.
Splitting comments and support requests makes sense because it prevents the wrong information from being publicly available.
Moreover authors should have the option to disable support or comments (if they wish). Neither of these is required of them. Better yet, authors could link directly to their self-hosted forum (instead of suffering through comments) to prioritize their support efforts.
TLDR : If Envato won’t modernize its tools, then it needs to let us disable them and use our own.
I’ve reported comments that post raw code (or link to it). Ideally “Item Comments” would be split into two sections as @pebas described.
I’ll add one thing. Authors should then be allowed to shift a comment from “Comments” to “Support” without assistance from Envato if the buyer mis-placed it.
AND they should be able to flag a non-buyer’s comment as “support related” which hides it publicly (as in: no presence in stream), and informs the non-buyer of this action.
I’ve been eyeing the Humanscale Float desk. The video shows it in action: http://www.humanscale.com/products/product_detail.cfm?group=float
The base price is around $1300. I think that’s reasonable considering the cardiovascular health benefits (none of which any chair has — even a $900 Herman Miller). I like to change position frequently so flexibility is more valuable to me than cost.I think it kills the alternatives, which are mentioned at the bottom of this review: http://www.core77.com/blog/furniture_design/standing_desk_shootout_humanscale_float_table_20334.asp
Great job Orman, you’ve set a great example for others to learn from. Congratulations on the big milestone!
WordPress is a platform. Magento is a platform. WordPress themes and Magento themes are not interchangeable.
All Magento themes on ThemeForest are for Magento Community edition, which is free and open-source. You need to install this on your server just like you would need to install WordPress.
- If author is logged in
- View any user profile
- See if, which, when, and how many items of mine they have purchased
The API should return the same info just as easily. It’s incomprehensible that authors have no right to know who their customers are, but Envato does.
I’ve recently tested these.
Zurb’s Reveal http://www.zurb.com/playground/reveal-modal-plugin Which is part of Foundation also: http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/reveal.php
Colorbox http://www.jacklmoore.com/colorbox Which needs a rewrite, but ultimately fit my needs better.
Just noticed it too, was going to post a bug here.
