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.

  1. 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…

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