I think the main reason of this problem is the trend which is going from one website theme towards multiple website themes in a single product.
Authors who are working on bigger products and increasing the overall value of the theme, they’re getting better sales in comparison to single website themes.
This trend has changed since the last year. Out of all the popular designs on themeforest most of them are following this same strategy.
So I guess it’s best to follow the trend because as the time’s passing by buyers are looking for more value in return to their investments.
I’ve seen this implemented to some of the PSD templates and it actually looks better than the old style. But this approach is only usable if you’ve smaller number of images in the product.
And if you’ve more than 100 preview images or even more. Then this functionality fails I believe.
My friend this is looking very beautiful for the html category I think this can easily get approved in my opinion.
And if I try hard to give you somethings which have room of improvement then the over all design colors can be considered somewhat dull and that is because of weak images specially in the splash/slider area.
Just to give you more insight your product belongs to hosting category and there isn’t too many designs in that category so they can’t point out any issues.
So in my opinion it’s good to go.
If you’ve any question please ask me, well done and all the best!
This one is certainly better than the previous one.
But if I were you I’d have made all those new things you talking about before uploading it for review.
A big product has better chances of approval then a smaller one.
Because smaller products offer less to the customer.
For the design stand point I’m still not convinced with just white text on the images. It’s not readable enough, more the posts are not very interesting visually.
If I were you I’d have added a solid somewhat transparent background behind text then introduce some cool looking icons to increase it beauty.
There are only very few pages in the design and those also don’t have enough content in them. For example About page, although it’s about page but doesn’t represents anything like a about page should. Rather it shows services.
On blog read page, the comments and posting comment section can be improved.
Minimalism doesn’t mean, almost nothing in the design.
Minimalism means everything in the design but visually minimal.
I don’t want you to go and have a feeling of rejection because trust me never feels good.
All the best once again!
I don’t understand what your design represents.
It’s very confusing after looking at it.
Typography is extremely weak.
Less design in the entire theme.
The same design can be improved if you’ll spend enough time increasing the beauty of each section in it.
Make something that can actually benefit a customer in real life.
Sorry if I sound rude anywhere, all the best and keep trying!
First of all it’s very sad to hear that.
I’ve few suggestions for you.
Try replacing the typeface to a Sans serif typeface.
Try introducing a clear space after and within each blog post. increase more white space with in content.
Try making the blog right column stand out more, may be trying adding a grey background behind it.
Try using contrast colors. Colors right now are not good enough.
Try increasing the style of blog posts. Add some creative twists in it.
Try giving more definition in the header area.
The bottom of the page where you’ve big instagram section, that’s actually making it look like a little cheap.
Try increasing iconography.
All the best!
The moment it launched I was like wow and then I was like what’s written, and I’ve perfect eye side.
Try a different typeface that’s more basic and easily readable.
Try increase body text.
Try adding a darker background behind text to make it pop more.
Try using bolder font for the headings.
Try adding something more to it. Package wise it offers very few things.
Try adding more home versions.
All the best and its good idea I must say!
One suggestion, never use images which have been seen in many other designs already.
The code looks fine but as far as design is concerned doesn’t offer anything unique which I can’t buy on themeforest.
This pretty basic question can actually make a lot of sense when you designing products.
Other than that I think you got all what it takes to be a good author.
All the best with your work and keep trying!
Images are bad quality, squeezed.
Less definition in the design.
Ask yourself these questions.
What does it offers to the customers that isn’t already there in themeforest.
What unique it has in it that will distinguish it from all the other designs.
What value will it bring to the customer and their business.
What first impression it will leave on the customers and their customers.
All the best and keep trying!
