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!
I never said anything about at one time… they were submitted over the course of one year. If you have any actual advice I’d really appreciate it.
Thanks for the reply, so basically adding additional fonts and maybe changing font sizes or line heights may do the trick?
I’ve submitted a few themes (3 to be exact) all of which were rejected, every time I start over it seems that their quality improves greatly and I learn more and more about delivering unique design. However im growing slightly frustrated after receiving the same reason for rejection every time and am hoping for some specific tips on areas that I need to improve.
I have a feeling that I simply need to add more fonts or just improve the general layout but are there any specific features im leaving out that I need to include?
Any advice is really appreciated, thanks in advance.
