I also think the font is too big on the menu, and maybe you should try a different font. Also, you should change the colors a bit, i think there is too much gray on the design… The footer and blog post need improvements too..

Thanks for the feedback. I’m working on adding more color. I do like the idea of using only one color plus black/gray. I see many PSD templates that do this, but maybe the difference is that they are using color photos and only one color on text/design elements.

Can you specify what part of the blog posts that aren’t working for you?

Update the content area . Check the other psd template popular item. Your content area is not good.

Thanks for the feedback. Can you specify which page’s content area needs improved?

Thanks themelux. I wanted the navigation to have an extra line of text available – does the font size just need to be smaller in your opinion? Thanks for your feedback, btw.

Does anyone else have feedback on what should be improved?

The PSD template linked above has been rejected with the ‘canned message’ of:
The overall quality of your submission does not meet our aesthetic and technical requirements and will need to be improved before being resubmitted. Unfortunately we’re not able to provide more specific feedback for your submission at this time. Please consider taking some time to familiarise yourself with our current library and quality levels of popular items before resubmitting.

I’m looking for specific feedback on what I should improve. My first thoughts are adding color, texture and detail – but should there be further changes beyond that? Please help!

Thanks, Stephen

Thanks Bebel,

So you would do the PHP includes while creating the website, but then when finished, turn it back into all static pages?

It seems strange that ThemeForest wouldn’t want the HTML site templates to use includes – but maybe the purpose really for developers to use them as a starting point and to add all their dynamic aspects on top of the HTML template.

I’m working on my first HTML Site Template for themeforest and wondered what the most common approach is on themeforest for doing include files in straight HTML site templates.

I’ve seen a few thread where PHP includes are suggested – but not sure if that is allowed or the best solution. How open ended is the HTML site templating in this regard?

What does everyone recommend? SSI includes (<!-#include file=”footer.html” ->), PHP includes (<?php include(“footer.php”); ?>) or just static content everywhere?

Thanks, Steve

Does anyone else have some feedback for me? Either critiquing my PSD files or about whether it would get accepted as an HTML template instead.

Does anyone else have some feedback for me? I’ve read in other item discussions that the PSD templates category is harder to get accepted in. Anyone who is familiar with the Site Template (HTML templates) category – do you think this current design will get accepted as a Site Template instead – provided I take the time to code it?

Thanks for any help.

Stephen

I’ve tried searching the Wiki but didn’t find anything on this question. I’m wondering if there are a set of requirements of ‘Site Templates’. Something like, ‘there must be at least one subpage coded’ or ‘slideshows must be functional’, etc.

Are there guidelines or requirements out there or should we try to be consistent with the current site templates for sale?

Thanks for any help you can give!
