1.) Music on your landing page. Sorry but this is such a BAD practice. I know it is just part of the landing page header video and it has nothing to do with theme itself, but I would give you at least soft rejection just for that. It is super annoying.

2.) Scrolling is VERY slow (using mouse wheel)

Other than that, it is very nice. Maybe just not unique enough?

You can try to open that template in something like Notepad++ (if you are on Windows). Just google for a free HTML editor for your OS, there are plenty od them. If you tried to open it in Dreamweaver because of its WYSIWYG mode, then unfortunately, 99% of templates here are too complex to be editable this way. You need to get your hands dirty with the code.

index.html can be opened in any text editor. Doesn’t matter if it’s Dreamweaver or Windows Notepad.

But to give you any hint if it is better to go with HTML template or WordPress theme, it really depends on your skills. You’ve said you have some basic HTML knowledge, but there is probably nothing more basic like opening the index.html file:) I assume that it was some very specific file issue. Anyway, going with WordPress theme can save you a lot of time. You should definitely try a free theme from wordpress.org first and if you will like the WordPress, just buy something more premium here.

Maybe if this generous budget is a 5 digit number in dollars, you will be able to find a psycho who can do it, but I REALLY REALLY doubt it. If you don’t want to make a 100% copy of CashCrate design (or don’t have design already), it will take two weeks just to create a decent design. Not saying that most of good designer are poor coders and vice versa…

1.) Please, use a different portrait image. Photos of this guy are used in almost every theme, it is getting really ridiculous.

2.) You should spend a few minutes to find some free stock images to portfolio section. It will make your demo look much better.

Other than that, it’s nice.

Lubos,

I have downloaded the Kingsize template using both “All Files & Documentation” and “Installable Wordpress file only”. Both always brings up the same error “The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini”

Thanks

Then you will have to get in touch with your hosting provider as mentioned by @codeex.

Probably the most generic design I’ve seen in a while. Ask yourself why woud anybody buy this if he can choose from plenty of multipurpose themes which are already on ThemeForest and most of them look much better.

I guess it can be improved, but you should put MUCH more effort into it. For example logo. I know it is just for demonstration purposes and nobody will buy your theme because of it, but your logo looks like you’ve spent exactly ten seconds on it. Another example of laziness is services section. Why each of those services has the same icon? Again, it is clear for most buyers that this can be edited and they can choose an icon for each service, but it just shows how litle effort you put into the demo to make it stand out. Of course, those are not reasons why you are rejected, but if you can’t handle such small details right, you have no chance to compete against top sellers.

If you are going to create a multipurpose theme (which is a very bad decision for most of new authors) you need to make it better than everyone else. This is most saturated category here on ThemeForest. Nobody is interested in another cheap Avada clone.

1.) Notepad ++ (if you are on Windows)

2.) You will have to move all your content manually, that means you will have to have a significant knowledge of HTML to do so (if your current page is just a static HTML and you really bought a template not a theme). There is really no easier way to do it, unfortunately. The only shortcut is to pay someone to do it, but you already tried that…

Or you can buy a WordPress theme. You don’t have to be a coder to work with that, just google some beginner tutorials and you will be able to move your content by yourself. I mean, it is easier to spend few days learning WordPress than few months learning HTML, right?

Don’t know under what terms you worked with that “freelancer” but using services like studio.envato.com is much safer.

Cool layout but poor execution. Some icons look pixelated. You just lack an attention to details. If you are doing PSD, everything must be pixel perfect. Try to take a look at latest top PSD designs and compare the overall pixel perfection to your design.
