Congrats on being accepted, however I have given up.
I authored a wordpress theme that I and my developer buddies thought was pretty good. But it was rejected.
At the time I thought ok I guess I’m just not up to snuff. But then I purchased one of the most expensive wordpress themes here- .
Immediately after viewing the PSD I was like, are you serious. Then after viewing the code I was totally miffed. How could I be totally rejected and this thing CHOCK FULL of spelling errors, bad design, and bad code have been accepted.
I based a project on this purchase and I am now losing all sorts of money with the corrections I have to make. So its a crap shoot. That is all.
You might need to elaborate a little as to what exactly you are asking. It sounds like you are asking us to use our time to generate content for your website.
Which is fine, what are your hourly pay rates?
Totally awesome, thanks guys. I actually had more space in the header but changed all spacing to be the same at the suggestion of someone else. I agree with pretty much everything you guys have said and will give another go at this design later today. Thanks so much for all the help.
@dotsona Thanks for the mockup, I actually had that background color in a different theme. The reviewer said my colors werent working so I changed it.
I think I have a good idea of of the direction I am going in next. Thanks so much to all that helper.
you could post up a link to what youre talking about and maybe we can helps.
I think moving the searchbar somewhere else would make a positive difference.
Additionally something about the overall color , that includes the colors in the images used in the mainpage. Can you find some images that have similar colors as the theme.Hope this was useful.
Yes very helpful, thank you. I was not sure about the colors in the images as well, I just used some images from past projects but I do see how it conflicts with the design. I do seem to have a problem with the colors I use in my designs, no one likes them.
Perhaps I should have come up with a catchy title instead of asking for help. Im really looking for some input here, not a pat on the back.
Would appreciate people who have been approved by kailoon weighing in (or kailoon himself). Mainly because I see some themes on Themeforest that are approved and I think, “no way did kailoon approve that.”. If other approved designers have any thoughts I would be glad to hear them. Seems strange no one has commented yet. The forum is usually so helpful.
They are pretty quick with rejections, not sure about accepted applications. Since you are obviously a successful designer can you look at my next submission? I have taken rejection on 2 other themes and really cant handle another.
I just stopped developing non portfolio templates since portfolio templates are the only things that get approved…
oh also, I have read this article already: http://blog.themeforest.net/tutorials/common-mistakes-in-web-design/
Ok so I have submitted a few themes and they are all rejected. I was thinking maybe it was because I didnt have the radial gradient highlight on the logo that you see on almost EVERY theme here. Then because of the reviewers comment I thought it was because the themes were not for blogs or portfolios like most themes here.
So here I present a design I think falls into the Themeforest mold…
Your input is greatly appreciated because I really cant afford to spend anymore time on stuff that is just flat out rejected.
