Marketplace Item Previews – We Moved the Big Buttons

 15   Tweet

Note: This post hasn't been updated in over 2 years.

Collis has been feeding the devs with steroids this month! We’ve updated the appearance and location of the preview buttons on our item pages.

This is a great improvement:

  • The buttons are out of the way, allowing customers can see the whole image preview.
  • Potentially, it allows for a lot more preview types.

What do you think?

We’re not finished yet! This is the first update in a sequence of item page optimizations we have planned.

    I like the new layout, much cleaner! Although it did look very borked until I cleared my browser cache.

  • Lucas

    Yep, i think it’s a good update.

  • onedesign

    Yah! Nice action

  • Much better, Took a bit of getting use to mind! I think it make’s the preview images look much bigger even though there not. 😀

  • VF

    What a milestone move! 😀

    Yes, this is the way to go. Switching the live/screenshot buttons was not a good idea, glad that you did give up on that.

    I think all envato marketplace sites have serious usability issues, for example – user buys a HTML theme and thinks it’s WordPress. This has to be stated clearly.

    Homepage, item pages – all those can be improved. For example, why item page has these large icons for file types included in the package? Is there a need for this? It uses a lot of the sidebar space and is redundant because there is already a list of files included…

    Great change, I love it! Shane was right on the money though, you’ve definitely gotta clear your cache before it looks right. 😉

  • great … keep up your work!! 😀

  • So much better! Now I don’t have to design around them when making screens. Thanks Devs!

    Nice update, though I wish that blank space on the sides of the buttons were used better.

  • I like the old design, that keep the page balance.
