  1. Remove today’s date from the top left, I don’t think its relevant as its not a news site and people usually know the date.
  2. Reduce the size of the social icons in the header, they are rather large
  3. Increase the padding in post white areas, the image padding is ok, but the text needs more breathing room
  4. Increase padding on the button for Read more, it needs a little more on the top and bottom and another 25px on left/right
  5. Give read more a rollover background colour
  6. Change the font colour for the main text so its a little lighter than the title
  7. The grey bottom I think is distracting from the content, this is secondary information I’d be inclined to reduce icon size, drop it back to white background and make the icons + text the same grey as the background was.
  8. On the post page, same as above + move the author box out and keep it white, so it sits below the main content and below the page shares
  9. Share icons could also do with a bit of jazzing up
  10. I’d probably drop the font size in the footer down a little and reduce the social icons by at least 50%
I hope that helps :)

Thanks so much for the in depth critique! Ill give it another shot.

Thanks. I knew about those 3. Though, I don’t think thats the reason for rejection seeing that all of the accepted Ghost themes have at least these errors, with some having as many as 20 errors.

I’m just looking for some feedback on this theme. I received my 2nd rejection tonight after a redesign. The reviewer stated that the theme doesn’t meet minimum quality requirements for the category it was submitted to and that I should look at other themes in the category. Thanks for any advice.

Just received my 2nd rejection. The reviewer said that it didn’t meet the minimum quality requirements. Anyone care to take a look and critique?

Just re-submitted my theme after a reject. The reviewer gave some advice(vague), and I refined the design. We’ll see. I’m just hoping to get it approved in under 10 tries :D.

What is the difference in a hard and soft reject here?

Just my uploaded my first theme ever. It’s exciting. It will likely be rejected but still I’m just happy to have reached the goal of submitting.

Well its a bit of a workaround. The actual post needs to have the image/iframe as the first thing within the post content and then on the index.hbs, insert..

{{content words=”0”}}

It works for now. I’ve asked the creator of Ghost about featured images and there is no official way so this is the closest we’ll get until someone finds a better way.

Thats actually a pretty sweet workaround. I had sufficed to simply using {{content}} rather than {{excerpt}} but thats great the excerpt can be limited so easily. Thanks for the tip!

Everyones themes look great btw. Congrats!

@meanthemes – Im curious as to how you are getting post images to display in an archive type layout. I thought this wasn’t possible with Ghost yet?

Thank you a million times SyamilMJ. All that hard work and releasing under GPL should earn you some kinda shiny badge of awesomeness. :)
