Not sure about the selling plan, its a tough one. In one hand if you sell it per percent of sales, if the item does not sell then you get no money out of it as the fixed price will assure you a certain amount but if the item sell a lot, it is worth the percentage…

If it was me, I would go for the percentage as it is a win win position for both side and won’t scare people to pay a certain amount to first start…

Anyway, keep up the good work mate. Nice one with your latest, good luck with sales.
For a % of sales no one would use it… how would you decide how much incisive is such component for the success of a theme?

I just think the back-end is as much important as the look and feel of a theme, it could be a huge selling point for a client who is looking for a simple way to maintained and create new pages…

Let say the component cost $500, not sure many people will go for it as you don’t know how much money the theme will make. As if it is a certain % of the sale and your theme is selling for $500, you will at least make some money out of it.

After that only you know how much important a back-end is for a theme, and up to you to include or not a such nice feature :)

You could do like Carrington Build and taking a piece of the cake for each sales, like that TF won’t be your only source of income :D

Hi Di,

I went through the same problem and still are but closer to the solution, in fact what need to be done is to give a slug name to the rewrite argument and to say it is not built in:
$args = array(
         'labels' => $labels,
           'public' => true,
           'show_ui' => true,
    '_builtin' => false, // It's a custom post type, not built in!
           'capability_type' => 'post',
           'hierarchical' => false,
           'rewrite' => array("slug" => "?apartments=","with_front'=>false"), // Permalinks format
           'query_var' => true,
           'show_in_nav_menus'=> false,
           'menu_position' => 5,
           'supports' => array('title','editor', 'excerpt', 'custom-fields', 'discussion', 'comments', 'author')
        );
so the piece you have to add is:
     '_builtin' => false,
     'rewrite' => array("slug" => "apartments","with_front'=>false"), 
the only problem I have is that doesn’t work without ”?” berore and ”=” after the slug name:
     'rewrite' => array("slug" => "?apartments=","with_front'=>false"), 

It may help you to find the right way.

If anybody else got the right way, let us know.

Use other font the titles and menu and every where you used this font. line up the titles in the middle section (“About”“Feature” and etc..) Besides that .. I pretty much like the theme.

Hi r0nka,

I’ll definitely change that font, more people noticed it more I gonna think it is odd. Thanks the line up for those title, didn’t notice they wasn’t properly align with the left margin ;)

Glad you like it, let’s hope it will be accepted.

Cheers mate

You can always try to identify how elements are arranged in the top themes and go from there. There is a certain trend in how to do that but also a couple of best practices. Good luck with it.

While I look at the top themes and most common themes I can see that is always the same corporate design/layout that came out everytime, my design is kind of unusual, might be a part of that the reviewer said it will not stand out, I don’t know I think I will give up on this theme or may be try a last time with your advices and see.

Thanks a lot mate, I appreciate your help.

What I mean by element are the areas surrounded by white space, like a text area. For a front page ish presentation I would go with a cleaner presentation of those elements following a grid maybe.

Like 3 text boxes side by side or some other way of aligning the elements more even annd keep a contextual consistency too with the frontpage of the CMS .

I hope this makes sense.

Make sense, thanks for you help, I’ll work on that.

I think the white part with the yellow font needs more work. It doesn’t stand well with the header area which looks much better. Maybe give the white paper some details or texture or something. Don’t use that weak yellow for the links. It fades into the white. Clean up the elements a bit with a stronger grid maybe. Reduce line height in the featured area. Other than that I don’t think it is bad. Better than a lot of other themes on Themeforest. The problem may be due to lack of clean elements and a bit of inconsistency with the choice of colors and typography.

Hi UI20 ,

I’m glad to hear that, thanks. I completely agreed with the typography choice maybe to thick and not clean. For the yellow color it is just one in the 17 other colors you can choose from, but I’ll maybe work on the white part and makes it not 100% white and add some noise too. Good catch for the line height in the slider ;)

One question, What do you mean by lack of element? You think is to simple, to flat?

Thanks
