That issue was in Firefox 32.0.2
As for the secondary nav, I would remove that. A navigation like that would make more sense on a “one-pager” type of site, but I am a firm believer in “less is more”.Definitely add some rollover effects to the thumbnail images, might want to look into the Essential Grid plugin from ThemePunch for inspiration, comes bundled with some nice effects.
Thank you again for pointing that out I’m fixing it now.
I prefer a more minimal approach to design as well, I’ll try out a few things and see what I come up with.
I added them already, you can check it out if you like.
It’s a clean looking theme, I think you just have some cleanup to do. I noticed a few things that if you changed up would knock it out of the park.
Add some rollover animations to your photo thumbnails to let the user know that it is indeed “clickable”. Also, the secondary menu on the homepage seemed weird, didn’t really understand what was happening there at first, but now knowing what it is, it seems excessive.
I agree with the others, ditch the devices and go with some full-with stock photography and make the sections a little more interesting, the home page lacks depth.
You might wanna fix this too on your homepage – http://cl.ly/image/1j0m2R3O2j0U
Lastly, the footer is a little bland, should add some stylistic features, right now it looks like an afterthought.Interested to see what the outcome is! Good luck.
Thank you so much for the detailed comment.
It’s funny you should say that I have updated the demo since it was rejected and actually removed the rollovers that I had in place, you’ve got me thinking I should add them back. Would the secondary menu make more sense if the links were more relevant?
I can’t believe I didn’t notice how overboard I had gone with the mockups, I will definitely be changing those soon as I can, if you couldn’t tell this was my first time working with mockups, I just thought they were cool
Thank you for pointing that out, which browser was that happening on? and version as well if you can.
Good news about the footer is that I have already changed it on my local development site, just haven’t uploaded the new version to the demo site yet.
Your feedback is seriously really appreciated, if you noticed anything else please let me know.
And thank you very much, I’m eagerly awaiting it’s eventual approval.
Yeahh I may have run a little wild with the mockups, may have to tone those down haha.
Thank you guys for the feedback, I realize now I was blinded by the pursuit of making it as functional as possible, and forgot to focus on the basic design.
I’m making the necessary changes now and as suggested focusing a lot more on typography.
Hey Themeforest community, I am not new here and have previously had an item approved for sale on this marketplace. After it’s relative success I decided to go to work on a much more comprehensive theme, one that would hopefully see more sales.
After 7 months of working on it I finally submitted it, after about 24 hours it was rejected without any explicitly stated reason as to why other than that it didn’t meet the minimum design requirements.
I have gone through the requirements over and over again and learned the hard way which mistakes to not make with my first theme, and I can not find any specific thing that is wrong with the theme I just attempted to submit.
While waiting for a response from Themeforest support with hopefully more information I thought I would post in the forums to see if there is something I am missing.
Thank you in advance, the working demo can be found here: http://camyno.themefyre.com
@SamBerson Thanks for the response, I was definitely skeptical about it kind of figured that would be the case, good luck with future endeavors though!
@pixelgrade That makes perfect sense, the best way to advertise your product is to let it speak for itself I suppose, thank you for the response.
I’m considering making a small “ad campaign” for the theme I’m currently working on to hopefully boost sales, and I’m curious about what other authors have experienced when paying for their own advertising for their themes where the advertisements link directly to the Themeforest product page. Does it work? Is it worth the investment? How many purchases actually result from clicks?
You will need to submit the theme you are working on to WPML for them to test out, it says they will create an account for you after you do so: “We will create a free WPML.org account for you, so that you can download the recent versions of WPML and test the fixes you have made in your code.”
I haven’t done it myself so I don’t know how exactly everything works but I am planning on submitting my next theme to get it approved by WPML.
Hope that helps.
The demo as well as a minor update will be available shortly, I was experiencing issues with my hosting service and had to recreate the demo.
I was looking over the framework, everything looks very well done and I love the name you chose, it’s very fitting. It’s clear how much time has been put into developing the framework. Good luck with everything!
I saw your video review and article about attaining Power Elite status, congratulations! Must be a great feeling, I hope to attain it as well someday, successful and hardworking people like yourself are an inspiration.
I’m just getting started with Envato (finally after just over 3 years of preparation) and it is thrilling to me to see others doing so well, I’m honored to finally be an author here and be apart of such a large community.
Congratulations and awesome work with the portfolio, keep it up!
