@mastergreed-I understand, again thanks for your input and reassurance.

@kailoon-You have a job to do and you do it well, no need to apologize :)

@Jeffrey-Thanks for your advice and input, I will have a look at experimenting with the font sizes etc, as I said I am still developing the theme so suggestions like this are highly welcome.

I just want to note, this isnt my first web site I have designed, just one of my first wordpress themes (besides my personal site), I am more of a coder and backend guy. Which is why I appreciate even more all of your input and help, thanks to all for helping me improve :)

Best Wishes and Happy Halloween!

Drew

@Master Greed,

Thanks for your honesty :)

@Simnor-Thanks for the kind welcome and sound advice, its nice to hear from you again. Regarding the validation, I agree, I always try and strive to make my html templates valid, but I am still relatively new with wordpress and found some validation to be a real pain. Point taken.

To be honest, it just isnt my best work and I dont think its practical. I am working on a new theme now, instead of starting a new thread, perhaps I could give you all the link and see if this one is any better?

I am just finishing coding the css so the links and such are not functional: http://creatingdrew.com/Themes/SimplySimple/

Is this design an improvement?

Thanks for all your reviews and honesty :)

Regards,

Drew

Edit-Just to note, I havent swapped the png “check marks” out in IE 6 yet but I am aware of it :)

I own both, but only touch my PC when I need to test my design and code in IE. Mac + Coda + Abode Master Suite = Pure Joy. :)

Drew

@Shadow- Couldnt you just insert the rows and cols and leave them blank and then style with css :)

Or will this not validate under strict?

Hi Guys,

I am kind of embarrassed to say, I recently uploaded my first wordpress theme for themeforest and unfortunately it was rejected (it happens I guess :) )

Anyway, I know the design isnt mind blowing to say the very least, but I did put a lot of work into the back end and scripting of the theme. It was rejected for not being aesthetically pleasing enough. So my question to you, do you think the design is worth salvaging or is it just not practical for what themeforest is looking for in a wordpress theme? If not, what would you change? Just looking for opinions so I can improve. I have plenty of designs lined up so I am trying not to let the rejection discourage me :)

here is the url: http://premiumthemes.net84.net/wordpress/

Best wishes,

Drew

Hi All,

I just have a quick question. I recently got the written consent to use a font for a theme I am in the process of making. When I upload the file, in the notes to the reviewer section, do I need to include the actual written permission (ie copy and paste what they said or send in an attachment)? Or is it enough to tell you I have their written permission. I am more than happy to prove it, I just didn’t see an area to attach a note or something of the like to prove that the fonts ok for me to use.

Much thanks and best wishes.

Drew

Im with postream, I just submitted my first theme and I would have loved it if their was a live preview of your theme description before your submitted it. Sure you can go back later, but it would be a huge help to see how it looks before you submit it, I didnt even know what tags are allowed to be used.

I also really like the .psd idea that Steve had, that would just be awesome.
