Hello Support ,
I was going through the Author terms and was not able to clearly understand the above statement as given in the Subject of this thread …
There are very good tutorials and code out on the internet written by some of the most creative minds and are open for free Use / GPL …
My Question is what is the Line of division between making a theme based on a tutorial OR taking some inspiration from a XYZ tutorial and modifying it to customize and fit seamlessly into a given theme and using it as a small part of a theme like for example a code block with a given or multiple functions
I would be really thankful if you can advice me more clearly on the above subject , so that i am on a right track and well within the author rules while i code my First Theme for Submission at Themeforest in the near future…
Thanks for the prompt reply Dear …. Was going through the submission guidelines and i have few small questions.. Would be really thankful if you can help
Q1 : I am Sure I am Allowed to use the Open source code repository from github for plugins like Knob , Parallax , Animate etc etc .. but still just wanted to confirm It… ???
Q 2 : Do not submit works based on tutorials.? Can u pls make it more clearer …. I presume this means that i cannot use a tutorial AS IT IS ( which is obvious ).... But i hope i can certainly use it by customizing it to my theme requirements like different markup tree and different CSS rules but may be same/modified jquery code / php code Please help me understand this rule/guideline more clearly ???
Thanks a lot …
Hello Support Team ,
First of all congratulations for such a great work you people are doing . I am a ENVATO member for last 2 years and come here on and Off just for keeping in touch with latest and best products based on Wordpress …. But now i am planning to start selling my own wordpress themes here.
I am from India and my account at ENVATO is in name of Ameh and that is a form of Individual tax payer in India , Individuals are taxed a bit differently from firms , so my question was that can i keep this same account here and if my themes sell ( hoping that your review team approves my themes ) can i get the payments into a Firm Account named Web4Apps , or do i have to create a new account with web4Apps name here at Themeforest , or can i link it to Ameh or can i change Ameh to Web4Apps … Pls suggest the correct and appropriate Option ????
I am Sorry if i may have picked up a wrong Topic name …. Hoping for a clear reply from ENVATO support team.
Thanks once again…..
I think SkyUx is correct , no point in complaining that is a negative approach….. there are many factors that may be in the minds of Review team at themeforest …. So instead of complaining … best would be to try and fulfill the requirements of review team members….
Thanks and Best of Luck…
Seems Good … Besides Here are some of my Observations :::
Search Icon Alignment
Available to Downlaod text can be a link.
Add some Effects to buttons on Home page.
masonry correct ,,, Must give a height to the outer wrapper .. I mean when click on showcase the content next to masonry block popsup …
Blog section on home page can be a carousel instead of stack items.
Main menu Css shows all dropdowns when pape reloaded ,,, must correct via jQuery.
Provide some Document borders as text is crossing document width on resize.
Clearly define your footer area..seems too flat.
Can add some hover effects on blog post images …
Best of luck friend for future…
Hard luck friend …. It seems you may have some submission guidelines issues… please refer to them before resubmitting….
Dear Friend , by no means i want to depress you…. but it seems your theme has no defined purpose … and has no Solution oriented design.. no home page , no interactivity and no use as to who will use this theme and for what purpose ….. Its only a blog page …. Nothing more …Make it look like a purposeful website theme….
Best of Luck for future…. Thanks
Here are my Suggestions::—
Make Skills area more Visible and Dynamic(like animated bars)
You can make past Employments section as Timeline based(added feature optional)
Font Contrasts need Improvement on the Contact Page(Almost unreadable)
Add hover effect on the Portfolio page (seems too simlpe)
Best of Luck for Future….
Have Patience Dear and be Positive,.....
Best of Luck for your theme…
