We’ll have a frontpage builder which will let you define several blocks with custom titles, item number of rows, category and type.
Let’s suppose that you want a block to show in 3 rows the Most Popular WordPress Themes from your marketplace. That will be really easy to setup.
Also, shortcodes (like the total number of items, authors, smallest price, etc.) will be available for use. Featured items, latest additions, become an author, the latest news and Featured Author blocks will be on the frontpage. Plus all the footer blocks with customizable links.
Here is a snapshot of the frontpage:
Here is the state when the mouse is over a theme thumbnail. We’ve made it functional and added the See details icon + Demo, Add to Wishlist and Add to Cart icons.
Let us know what you think. We’ve tried to use the industry’s standards, in terms of thumbnails sizes, user interface and how the things were done until now, in order to keep the same habits and conventions – so that your authors will migrate to your marketplace easily and customers will be able to easily use the script.
