Thank you for detailed adivces!

More spacing betwen section of the website. More padding to elements.

Just a little test. Change .featured-zone-shadows -> Remove height .feat_one_fourth { margin-bottom:20px; margin-top:20px;} #before-content-content {padding:40px;}

This is just to have an idee of what spacing could do to not make the site look cluttered.

Are you talking about latest screenshot or about original version?

Thanks for precious advices!

I’m trying to fix issues.

Effectively contrast in nav is poor.. I think part of problem is photoshop aliases. When I put nav on html I will see if color is too much light.. Probably I will put a darker grey.

Thanks!

Thanks all for feedback!

libertux I’m very happy for your positive comment! This give me more energy to improve theme and to try to be accepted in themeforest! If you like my work I think there is someone else who could buy this theme.

BenSheppard thank you for advices!

It’s all really squashed together
I think this type of layout need to be full of informations. I used 20px of space everywhere. Obviously our theme isn’t based on this logic -> http://demo.gavick.com/wordpress/meetgavernwp/
Our next theme will be based on that logic (I like so much your theme!)

Spacing issues
Probably I understood where you see issue, but can you give me some example of space issue? So I can solve them!

Your dropdown comes down too slow (petty one but it’s annoying)
You are right. I can speedup! Obviously there is an option in our framework, so I only need to login in demo wp and set better values in menù options.

Your footer looks off
This comment needs explanation. Do you think the footer is too much dark? Probably I could add a bg pattern and make it more clear (not dark grey..)

I really don’t think the nav suits the theme
For nav I think to add a GFont and arrange better logo, icons and search (as I wrote in my second post). Probably we need a better idea for submenus.

PS = Can anyone reply to my second post (my ideas for improvement)? Thanks!

No advices = Perfect Project ?

I do not think :)

Last night I dreamed of some possible improvements (reject is forcing my mind to work at night :| )

STRUCTURAL IMPROVEMENTS

  • to remove top wrapper (logo and social icons)
  • to make menu on 100% band on the top adding logo (small) before HOME button
  • to remove box around slider and to add a 100% background photo with slides animated over (all slides png24 with transparent bg)
  • to add horizontal scorrling to featured posts
  • (I’m not sure about these improvements because some parts of layout would be boxed and some parts would be 100%.. Will be hard to mix without miss professionalism.. )

    FUNCTIONAL IMPROVEMENTS

  • to add small plus (”+”) button on top-right of screen to open a hidden panel on the top (it will appear as toggle box). This panel will contain Social Icons, maybe search field and probably an announcement or slogan. This panel can be closed from the same “plus”.
  • to arrange the slide’s parts (img1, img2, html title, html text) in more eccentric mode
  • to add a plus button on bottom-right (footer). This will close/open footer wrapper with a slide amination
  • to add absolute info boxes near important parts of layout to emphasize the concept. These would be similar to the boxes in wordpress admin (when you install latest version)
  • to add a “to the top” icon when user scoll down (fade effect)
  • AESTHETIC IMPROVEMENTS

    • to add a particular GFont for menu
    • to add a particular GFont for headers tags and some title
    • to add css3 animation for many rollovers (social icon could zoom in, the icons under slider could incline to right (45°), all could move to right, all shortcodes could be improved by css3 animation)

    Please write us what you think about these improvements.

    Thanks!

    Hi guys,

    we submitted our first theme on themeforest and received the famous rejection for “genericness”. This issue is hard to solve..

    Here their feedback:
    Overall, this is a very solid effort. I’m seeing a few issues that will need to be rectified but before that you need a bigger issue first — genericness.

    Try to make your theme’s design more unique and less simplistic. A unique design is a key factor for approval.

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

    We reached a point of saturation already. At this point, we’re only looking for unique variations of this kind of layout. [header, slider, teaser, footer]

    I stronged important sentences.. I admit our structure is a bit viewed, but we pointed on cleaning. Probably we miss some important feature as responsive, gfonts and multiple styles, but I think our theme is salable and our framework is easy and handy to use.

    Demo: http://demo.x-theme.com/moderncare/

    I hope you can wrote good and constructive advices to improve this theme. We won’t begin from 0.. :(

    Thanks
