Althought, rejection reason was not clear, i think border between the navigation lines could be the real culprit. Well, i’ve resubmitted the file, after fixing this issue. See what happens.

Thanks very much all of you for your suggestions :)

Hey,

Recently my theme was soft-rejected for a number of reasons. Rectifying of which was straight forward, except one issue. Reviewer has mentioned this as an issue: http://envato.d.pr/1fphq/3kk24SUT

I think, it may be regarded as a design limitation of the theme as it only occurs when PARENT links exceeds the available space for the menu. And each theme, having horizontal navigation, will have a max-width limit after which navigation will wrap and start a second line. Similar, thing happens in default WordPress themes (e.g TwentyThirteen) as can be seen here: http://d.pr/i/CKVT/4P6KkB0T

In this case user can overcome this issue by categorizing links in drop down menus. Or secondary links may be shown on some other menu location.

Whats your thoughts in this regard?

I recommended you using Envato Logos for theme demos : http://graphicriver.net/forums/thread/envato-logos/36526

Thanks for the link. I think using envato logos is acceptable but i’m not sure about using other ‘real company’ logos. As some people are using them, I just want to understand envato’s policy on that.

Hey,

My theme was soft-rejected today, one of the reason mentioned was that i was using real company logos (as a placeholder) in clients page. I’ve no issue with this policy, but i’m confused, because i’ve seen some theme demos on themeforest, using real company logos. For example: http://bit.ly/1CQWxI2

What’s the real policy?

Although new layout was looking good on its own, and was covering the limitations of first layout but the issue was, there was sudden change in visual hierarchy when a user approaches project detail page from homepage. For example:

From this: http://ovari.mstrends.com/

To This: https://www.dropbox.com/s/73hjaidw3bxznuc/new.png?dl=0

And this may not be very good from UX perspective. Keeping in view this flaw, i’ve revised the project’s page design once more.

Here are the screenshots of new design. Now whats your take. Which design should i follow.

Is it better to forgo old layout variations and adopt new layout?

Thanks very much for your input Charlie. Much appreciated.

I’m somewhat in between now. As according to another friend of mine, as NEW layout doesn’t follow the visual hierarchy of the rest of the site, the old one is better.

Any more opinions?

Hey,

First of all happy new year to all of you. :)

I’m here to seek some advice on design of some specific portion of the site. I’ve started working on WP version of an already approved HTML template here. It is almost complete, excluding project single page, as i was not fully satisfied with it. Therefore, I’ve made some adjustments to design for WP version.

Previously, i had 3 layout of portfolio gallery images, as can be seen here:

1: http://ovari.mstrends.com/portfolio-single.php?format=image-stack 2: http://ovari.mstrends.com/portfolio-single.php?format=image-slider 3: http://ovari.mstrends.com/portfolio-single.php?format=image-gallery

Now, although from features point of view, providing decent amount of options to customers is good but this layout of single project page has a few limitations.

1: The width of media (555px) used in single project page, seems a bit narrow, specially when there is a trend of using bigger images in portfolio single page.

2: If we use a single image (having height less than project desc, at the right), or any embedded media (audio, video), the layout seems a bit unbalanced. For example:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/55ofhu84tiu7b8p/old.png?dl=0

Keeping in view these limitations i’ve drafted a new design of single project page, which overcomes above mentioned points. It can be seen here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/73hjaidw3bxznuc/new.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/o5ieiqvk0u7gvb3/new-1.png?dl=0

Now, what you people think, as a designer, as a customer, which proposal is best. Any advice would be appreciated.
