Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a new tool I created recently that may help you update your portfolio with the YouTube Content ID attributes, and more.
Introducing the Item Updater, a Chrome extension that let's you systematically set and update the attribute values across any number of your Envato Market items, easily and automatically.
The Item Updater will also optionally use the provided attribute values and apply them as defaults on the item upload page if you choose.
It's free to install and use from the Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/item-updater-for-envato-m/aphjbcgcmimimmdmmbokaedjmabgdpoj
Quick tips for adding YouTube Content ID attributes and HTML snippet
For adding the Content ID details to your items you would enter something like this:
YouTube Content ID Registered
YouTube Content ID Administered By
Note: The "
" after the snippet text will put a blank line between the snippet and the rest of your description for nicer spacing.
One other thing to look out for, if you have older items that haven't had the "Vocals" attribute set yet, the item edit form will not validate and will be unable to submit the update for those items. To ensure the Item Updater works here, simply do the following:
- Add the Vocals attribute name to the list, and enter N/A as it's corresponding value.
- Make sure the "Overwrite Existing Attribute Values" setting is unchecked/disabled.
This means it will select the "No Vocals" checkbox for any items where the Vocals attribute is missing/unset, while items that already have existing Vocals attribute values (e.g. Lead Vocals, Vocal Samples, etc) will remain unchanged.
Hope you find this helpful as I have! Please let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues. Enjoy :)
