Don’t you tell your clients that you are using a theme? If you do, what does it matter if they can see the theme author and price as they are already aware of the situation?

You are completely correct in that in most cases sliders are completely pointless. However, fancy sliders in themes and templates sell and ultimately us authors are here to make money. As FlatKing said, in most cases sliders are an option feature that can be excluded or removed without any effect on the rest of the theme or template.

Do you have a pet hate? If so what is it?

I really hate it when people say ” I could care less” I can understand if English is not their first language, but if it is, to not fully recognize that they are saying that the COULD care less means that they in fact they actually care.

;-) Anyway i COULDN’T care less if you are offended by my poor grammar and punctuation but i had to get that of my chest, I’ve heard it being said so many times in the office today!
This just about sums it up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om7O0MFkmpw

The category in your case would be “WordPress Themes”. The message you received is politely saying your design is not yet good enough aesthetically to be accepted. In regards to design there are no written minimum requirements that I can point you towards as good design can be very subjective.

The best you can do is look at other items in the same category and honestly compare your themes overall design quality, spend some time improving the item and then resubmit.

why do you need to know everytime you have a sale, that would drive me nuts…
Being notified when you make a sale isn’t a problem. The problem is when you stop hearing the notification sound because your items have stop selling.

“One-page” would not make sense as a category as it describes the layout of the item rather than the intended use (which is what the existing categories do). It would make more sense to add it to the item info beside the existing layout description (responsive, fluid, fixed). However, if this was added it should be possible to mark an item as having both a one-page and multi-page layout as they are not mutually exclusive.

Custom post types should be packaged as plugins instead of as a part of the theme. The new submission requirements deal with this issue specifically.

This:
(function($) {
“use strict”;

//Author Code
})(jQuery);

...is the same as this:

jQuery( document ).ready( function( $ ) {
"use strict";

//Author Code
)};

It sounds like you are using the long form of the document ready function and then trying to wrap it in the shorthand form of the document ready function. You need to use one or the other.

The code provided by OriginalEXE and Tommus are the same and are exactly what you need. They meet the theme requirements.

From my understanding you can use the Site Origin page builder plugin with your themes sold on ThemeForest as the license only stipulates that you can’t bundle it (hardcode it) into the theme.

If you make your theme compatible with the plugin with custom CSS styles and either inform buyers that it is compatible or even use the TGM activation plugin to recommend buyers install it you should be fine. This paragraph from their website seems to support this:

That said, I’d suggest just encouraging your users to install Page Builder from the WordPress plugin repo. This will ensure they stay up to date with the latest version of Page Builder. It’s an actively developed plugin with almost weekly updates and bug fixes

Looking at the item’s description the author is justifying it as a separate item because, despite the designs being identical, the old item (with WooCommerce support) is for commercial sites and the new version (without WooCommerce support) is for corporate sites and the two items will have different development paths going forward.

I don’t know how legitimate of a claim that is as to me there should be very little difference between a theme without WooCommerce support and a theme with WooCommerce support but the plugin not activated.

I’m pretty sure I read a rule somewhere that said two items in the same category (HTML, WordPress, Joomla, etc) could not share the same design and if they did they should be sold as one item.
