With all due respect the reviewer message is a hard reject so its generic, and the simple fact is that just because your HTML got through does not mean it will automatically make it as WP.

As you said your HMTL version is form a few years ago and again with respect your WP design looks that way.

You don’t see ,any if any VCard WP themes because there is not enough to them to warrant the costs involved and they are hard to place in the market.

That aside as Charlie4282 said it could easily be something to do with the backend of your theme also?

Did it meet all the WP requirements being set out? http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/update-wordpress-theme-submission-requirements/103347,

It can’t be validated?

You will need to develop the design and functions etc quite a lot to make it through in WP

We actually got asked if there was something like this. It is a great idea and I am amazed it has not happened before.

I do agree with some of what you said – there are probably too many steps. I would suggest cutting it to “The download process” and the “upload process” (as in from login to dashboard up until activating theme) and just have 2 slides to cover this.

Otherwise users may get confused jumping between their site and yours. If you are making a full run through video then maybe have shorter version for each on these two steps attached to the relevant slides too.

That said I can completely understand that you may think it should have click per slide edits! Cool project, post a link when it is finished.

Post again when it is updated – maybe think about the font choice a little as they seem a bit harsh but its getting there

Sadly it is still out there: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_explorer.asp

You will find there are worryingly people who are just not aware of upgrading, too inexperienced and certain work/office environments that account for a fair amount of this

P.s. MOD this is an OLD thread and maybe worth locking up

Altohugh I think it is a good idea ultimately it would not necessarily be the best move – there are already buyers who fir the wrong/right reasons believe that envato is biased towards authors. Any move to single them out like that would cause issues. You would have to have one in reverse so where only buyers can post and then you have the question of those who are already (or who would become an author/buy a file) to fall into both categories

EDIT: UBL’s idea if its off enavto and set up independently then that is definitely a lot safer

How is that inspiration? For example

yours: http://www.amirelwakkad.com/templates/lust/page_aboutme_1.html
Kickstart: http://mnkythemes.com/kickstart/our-team/

yours (testimonials section): http://www.amirelwakkad.com/templates/lust/page_aboutus_2.html
Enfold (testimonials at the bottom): http://www.kriesi.at/themes/enfold/

yours: http://www.amirelwakkad.com/templates/lust/
kickstart: http://mnkythemes.com/kickstart/three-columns/
Fine the icons are in a different place but big deal that effect does not exist on any other theme

I can go on but there is no point. You can make whatever changes you want but to me at least without a blank start you will never get through and if you do then you will end up with a DCMA against you straight away.

you can claim all you like about ‘inspiration’ but that to me is clear ripping and all it does is degrade the effort made by existing authors who come up with the stuff originally and adds insult to those newer authors trying to make it on to the marketplace by going to the genuine effort of creating original design.

@macrunner it seems like you are missing the points raised by other authors here and by KingDog as envato staff?

Contact the author directly? I think it’s useless. In these last hours, the author is receiving thousands of emails. Can not answer at all.
If you are not even prepared to try and contact the author (especially as they are the only people who can answer your questions without the need for “telepathic abilities”) ; then of course you will have a “lack of information”, which to an apparently greater degree will be self inflicted.

That is shameful! You can’t just pick the best bits form other peoples’ file and chuck them together. It does not even look like you made an effort to change any of it!

There is nothing to “Add before submitting” you need to drop this and stop insulting other authors by ripping their work

@cevatkerim that is simply not true. If a buyer finds a genuine bug in a theme by ANY author or can prove it does not work as advertised they will give them a refund.

If an author provides support it is voluntary and yes of course it is good customer service but that does not change the fact it is out of their generosity.

@welovestories, at the end of the day while I appreciate it can be frustrating not to get help the bottom line remains we buy themes “as is” and support is not required making it something that should be treated as a bonus feature of an author not something that it is fair to rate them upon.

For what it is worth I do take a slightly different attitude to those “guaranteeing” support as a sales pitch then failing to deliver.

Thats actually a good point – we have been having issues with this and what does/does not need to be listed. Interested to hear what the staff have to say about files on here as according to the rules we read it is not just about where it is hosted but where the user is and also in this case where the marketplace is.

Either way we will send you what we use as a “generic” (to be slightly adapted per case) content for the page but it would be good to hear what others are doing to comply also
