Thanks for the reply. How exactly do they “work” with email clients?
There are a lot of limitations when creating a HTML email template. Forgot about DIV ’s and CSS2 in separate files. You need go back to table-based layout, inline CSS , tags like “font” and other garbage. This is how we code about 8 years ago, and imagine that you need to do this today!
I think because email templates are much harder to code properly. It is not as simple as code the usual HTML /CSS page. The reason is the email templates need to work in the lot of email clients, and they are not so smart as browsers.
I think the main problem is that you not put anything unique or interesting in your design. It is too ordinary and as you say “standard”.I know few templates that has very cool and beautiful design, like that: http://themeforest.net/item/barista-html-theme/full_screen_preview/1587780
it accepted as a HTML template, but not accepted as WP because there are a tens of the themes with the same concept and functionality. So, start with the creative idea and you will have a much higher chances even without the design of highest quality.
i can code. First, we do a HTML version – about 2 weeks, then WP – also about 2 weeks. I have few items here on TF in partnership with other designer – 2 HTML and 2 WP, and two items in my own portfolio.
Do not worry if it will be rejected, we will improve it and try again and again, that is how it works I’m also interested in the long-term partnership.
Waiting for your answer.
The text is hard to read. maybe with another font color o another font-family. Looks nice! I think the problem is the font.
Thank you very much. I agree with you, in some places there is not enough contrast. But i think to make color darker would be enough (i like the font).
my template is rejected for third time now. This time the inspector gives to me the same message as before:
This is indeed an interesting concept and it has potential but the inner pages still need improvements. Also there’s a few font size inconsistencies in the paragraphs. The blog & portfolio pages are not looking any better.
What i’m need to do with the inner pages and where is the problems with the font size ? I’m already tired to change this template, you know, this is a lot of work and time.
Any other recommendations. I need you feedback!
The first question answer is correct – upload files via ftp to your server.
To change content of html pages – you need to edit the code. HTML page – is the same as usual text file, but contanin also html tags.
To see the page code – right click on page in browser – view source. You can edit this code in any text editor, just open, for example index.html in a text editor.
It you new to HTML – it would not be very easy, but possible.
This is because something like page timeout/expired. Try to input all description and upload files as fast as you can.
I get this message when if not submit page in about 10 minutes.
Thank you very much, Devon
i really like you ideas about focus and social icons. But not sure i understand about menu colors.
