I found almost all my posts were inserted some HTML code like advertisement. Anyone has been met the same issue? It looks my wordpress or hosting is hacked.

Is there any way to strengthen the wordpress site security?

I have a HTML template was soft-rejected, and the WP version was directly rejected, then I’ve already submitted WP version to another marketplace, can I still submit the HTML modified version to Themeforest once more?

Thanks!

You should try a few more times :) I got approved after my 5th or 6th soft reject, and I ended up really improving my theme based on having to fix it each time to be better. Atleast it wasn’t a hard reject that many face.

Thanks for your encouragement!

Don’t dispair, our latest template went through a few rounds of soft-rejects too. Most rounds were actually things that were there since the first submission and the reviewer only mentioned a few. So we had to keep going back and forth to get it live, but we did in the end.

Have a bit more patience, I know it can be frustrating, but consider this: Just as we make our own mistakes that we get rejected for, reviewers are humans too and can overlook things, or be too zealous. This is really not a bad template, definitely not one to give up on.

From where I stand, better spacing within each post box would be ideal, on all sides. Titles are too close to the excerpt text, which messes the visual hierarchy a bit.

On post pages, the blockquote could use some better styling and fonts. Looks a bit out of place. Also consider that on higher resolutions (basically any desktop these days), your paragraph lines are pretty long and that creates readability issues. You could try a 50px on .post_content and getting it to 30px on mobile combined with a max-width: 750px (or close) on .post_excerpt, #author_vcard, #comments & #respond. That might do the trick. Give it a try and see how you like it.

And I must say I’m not a big fan of the background photo, don’t really see its purpose in a template that’s already image-heavy. It steals away the shine of the post images. But this can be a very subjective opinion so don’t take my word for it.

Good luck in getting it live!

Alex

PS: Don’t move onto WP if you can’t get the HTML approved. The review standards are even higher there.

Thank you so much for your careful checked. You help me a lot! :)

I have been posted the information here before http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/need-suggestions-for-a-softrejected-template/144255 I’m not sure how about I give up HTML version and continue to develop WP version, will WP version also rejected? Because of the not perfect design?

The latest reviewer’s message is

“The template still requires some additional work. Minimal designs are ok, but must be pixel perfect for approval on ThemeForest. Make sure that all text is sized appropriately and fit well within a logical hierarchy. All spacing and alignment should be perfect and the flow of the page should not be interrupted.”

Maybe my ability limited, I’m going to give up a soft-rejected template :( Because after 5 times resubmissions, I still can’t fix the issues and I do not realize that how to make the space pixels to be perfect, no screenshot, so it’s hard to know where I should improve. Is the HTML more difficult to get approval than Wordpress in design part?

The same, i have an item that is not approved for the third month) Itwas redesigned twice. But now i know what should i fix and i will try to reupload it for 20 or may be 25 time))

my item is – http://alethemes.com/html/clenci/

I admire your patience, bro! :D :D

I would have the body copy font changed to something else with lower x-height.

Animations on menu is a bit rough.

I don’t like animation for the images – too much.

Work on your typography at About section and visual hierarchy at Elements section.

Overall – nice template, I like the Montserrat font choice and details!

Thanks, I will think about your suggestions seriously

even in those pages text “wonders” is too tight

why do we need pipes menu on large screens when we already have horizontal menu?

PS. i am also beginner here so don’t take me in wrong way…i am just trying to help you with what i know/see.

Thanks for your suggestion. I will think about it.

For pipes menu, actually user can change it to the other content.
