Thanks so much for all your feedback. I really do appreciate it.

@manuelvega – Thanks for the positive comments. It probably is just too generic.

@Jaynesh – You’re exactly right. I am feeling like it’s a bunch of time wasted, but it will provide a great framework and that was my main goal since I already have a separate framework for one-page design.

@Jaheravy – Thanks for the links. I think I’ve included most of these concepts into the theme already, but I’m going to revamp it and make it a bit less generic.

@mafloral – I agree that there are a ton of themes that look the same here. I thought I had differentiated this one by making it even cleaner but I might have taken it a step too far.

Thanks again.
Is your theme accepted now or what?

Unfortunately not. I’ve been busy with theme support and clients so I haven’t had time to take another stab at the design.

My theme was rejected on the grounds of lacking uniqueness.

I think that the review process is necessary, but it would have been more helpful if there were more specifics. I know there are a lot of great reviewers, but sometimes the responses seem way too generic.

I would really appreciate any feedback or constructive criticism anyone has to offer. Do you think it’s far too similar to other themes? Is it lacking features? Needs more graphics? And if so what areas need the most improvement (header, slider, carousel, footer, etc.)?

http://themeluxe.com/themes/canvas/ Reviewers response:
Your template does not provide a unique enough design with the necessary design quality, features and options to compete in the marketplace at this time. As higher quality templates become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.

You might consider improving your design with more unique features and graphics in order for it to stand out among other marketplace items. However, a unique design will be a key factor for approval.

I know it’s frustrating to be rejected citing uniqueness but recently, we’ve gotten a large number of template with the same overall features and presentation and we have to draw the line somewhere.

However, we do accept themes with similar structure but in condition it provides better quality in terms of aesthetic or features.

Hi,

It definitely wasn’t my intention to mislead you into thinking that the portfolio items were video ready. I didn’t post them in the demo and I’m pretty sure it was discussed several times in the comments.

Like I told you in the support ticket, we’d probably have these additions done in under two weeks. The updated version is already in the Theme Forest queue and waiting for approval. Galleries, videos, and other post formats are now available for blog posts and portfolio items.

(Assuming you don’t get the refund) new notes were added to the documentation on usage as well as updated demo content. Feel free to drop me a line again in the support forum if you have any trouble. :)

Great theme. Really like the style.

I agree with jayc on the portfolio items. The transition is a bit jumpy. Also agree with Ragzor, that scrollTo or scrollTop for the navigation would really help.

Looks like there’s a border or some line underneath the right nav arrow of the slider.

I like the font choice a lot, but I think the logo font clashes with it a bit.

The content boxes (web design, graphic design, etc.) – I would probably throw in a media query to make them 100% width on smaller devices.

Overall great template.
