I think your first design can be an Avatar Icon and Homepage Image!
Welcome to TF and nice designs. Try this thread for some good ideas on what people want designed:
Also Massix has expressed interest in finding a fullscreen gallery theme.
Kontent, I assume you have a Site Template in queue? Don’t worry about a little time in the queue. Sales this week were slow anyways because of many factors including that big WP bundle. So it actually might have saved you some sales if you do get accepted.
PS. Be kind to the gatekeepers
In Safari on the mac, the website is pretty much un-viewable. Everything is pushed to the right out off the page.
As a newer author, but not new to the marketplaces, I can offer some hope. ThemeForest IS trying to do something about the copycats and often lack of originality. It’s obvious if you check the Item Discussions, the most common rejection for high quality themes is lack of uniqueness. ThemeForest is trying to address this problem as best as possible.
Check out this recent thread from a week ago for a great example: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/need-advice-to-improve-this-theme/32721
This thread had too much doom and gloom. Had to send some positive energy
I just looked over and here is some quick feedback:
1) Over too bland and boring, TF keep increasing the standards and requiring more depth and style. I recommend at minimum tossing in a background image/color even if it’s just a gradient. 2) The menu is the cleanest part, but when I scroll the page the margin changes. Make the margin on the top constant. When I scroll down, the menu margin goes down in size before the menu starts to move. 3) The Jupiter font choice doesn’t match. I’d suggest just sticking with a sans-serif font like the rest, maybe just a lighter one. You can try a serif font but choose one that doesn’t look so out of place. 4) The regular links need some color or underline. In the Latest Blog Posts for example, I only could tell they were links by rolling over them on accident. 5) Make the feature slider taller, currently the side menu is overbearing compared to the slider.
That should get you started. Good luck!
Where do you buy the 27” Apple LED display from? And how much does it cost? Thanks
$999 for the 27” in the US. It’s one of the best displays at 2560-by-1440 resolution. I recommend it as you can see in my desk post earlier in the thread. Find it here: http://www.apple.com/displays/
I agree, it’s a great design.
The most common response for these rejections is that PSD templates are very hard to get accepted and often sell poorly. You have a great design, convert it to an HTML template and you should have no problems getting that accepted.
Minor issue: Footer could use some design work. Also, the | shouldn’t be pink.
I think it looks great and unique. I think part of the busyness comes from the advertisements. It definitely shows good examples of where advertising can go, but maybe just a little busy on one page.
Note: In safari the search button has a line-break. It’s below the search type box.
