Hey guys, thanks for the feedback! You are both leaders in the Joomla-marketplace here, so I will take your comments to heart.

For now, I decided to not waste any more time tweaking the template for ThemeForest. Coco is now up for sale on my own site JoomlaDirect

I need to take a breather before getting back into the ThemeForest game. Not giving up! :evilgrin:

Great design. TF is crazy for not approving this one. I’m in a similar boat right now. I feel the reviewers really should provide more specifics on why they reject items. It would save everyone a lot of time.

I just got the dreaded rejection email from my latest submission. Can you help me figure out what to fix?

“Your file does not provide the necessary design quality to compete in the marketplace at this time. It requires improvements in term of design, visual hierarchy, typography, layout and aesthetic quality but most importantly how the design is executed.”

I’m thinking that the layout of the demo is what killed it? Is that the trick to getting approved? Having an awesome looking demo home page? I’ve gotten nothing but good feedback from the Joomla community, so this one’s is a mind-boggler. The last template I submitted a few months ago was also rejected twice so I ended up giving it away for free on my site. It’s had over 5k downloads so far. I just can’t manage to get my stuff approved on TF

Please take a look at my demo. Your input on the design or layout is welcome.

Thanks!

Thanks celavey. I’m not seeing any PM options on your profile. I’m ok if you want to reply in the comments here.

Hi, I’m new to ThemeForest. Just had my first Joomla template rejected.

http://demo.joomladirect.com/kotoba

Can anyone help me find examples of the reviewers comments:

2. There are a few inconsistent spacing issues throughout the design.

3. Overall template’s typography needs additional refinements and improvements before it will be ready for sale.

I would hate to spend time changing parts that don’t need changing. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance for replying

I just had my first template rejection. I’m looking for some advice from other authors who can help interpret the reviewer’s boilerplate message.

Here’s the rejection message:

We’re sorry, your item Kotoba – Premium Elegant Joomla Template has not been approved for sale on ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:

1. Your file has some well done design concepts, however it does not meet the current and very stringent quality guidelines and we can not accept your file at this time. You will need to make some additional improvements in overall aesthetics and aspects such as typography, graphics and spacing.

2. There are a few inconsistent spacing issues throughout the design.

3. Overall template’s typography needs additional refinements and improvements before it will be ready for sale.

4. Even with the current design, a significant increase in the polish of the various aspects of the template may just swing the decision in your favor.

Based on #4, my impression is that he doesn’t think the theme is horrible, but it could use some attention in certain areas. I just wish he could’ve given some examples. I would hate to waste time changing parts that he felt were fine.

In particular, can anyone point out an example of #2 and #3 • “a few inconsistent spacing issues throughout the design.” • “Overall template’s typography needs additional refinements and improvements”

I appreciate your feedback on these two items specifically.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to help me out!
