I’m also interested and your mail didn’t work for me too. Maybe you can contact me through my profile page?

Thanks.

At least $58 for themes incorporating ecommerce. I too didn’t know I had to open a ticket to get it adjusted when I updated my theme to be compatible with WooCommerce (and I mentioned it in the notes to reviewers section, I thought reviewers would do all the necessary procedure).

That would make calculation for author fee difficult for them, so I guess that’s why it’s not implemented. If you want to sell non-exclusive items, the only way to do that right now is to register another non-exclusive account here. After all, the author fees for non-exclusive authors is always fixed regardless of sales amount.

... if an author have bad sales on item, he can still try to sell it somewhere else and try to cover cost.

I guess you can just remove the item from this marketplace and sell it elsewhere. For support or other purposes, you can still verify your buyers through their purchase code I think, although I’m not 100% sure.

Hi Matt, I think my HTML template (also available as WordPress theme) can suit your needs with some further customization (to make the large video tile) which I can provide if you’re not sure how to do it.

Thanks.

Hi, I’m just wondering what kind of features or design are you looking for in the template? Maybe some examples if you have?

This theme by Ruben came into my mind when I saw that. Have you checked it out? It was quite popular for some time when it was released.

Otherwise you could have bought the theme you showed, you do realize it’s a demo from another company which sells WordPress themes right?

Thanks! This looks really neat. I wonder how did you learn to customize the media uploader? It almost has no documentation although the rest of WordPress codes / files are quite well documented.

I think it looks much better than many of the hard rejected themes here but the theme feels ‘empty’. Probably it’s because of the way you organized it, it feels as though there is nothing much unless I use the dropdown menu to navigate around (even so, some other pages are nothing but a few large images + some text).

Perhaps it’s better to make it look more like conventional themes but have another page / section showing this concept. The 2-column footer widget looks weird too, I think you should make it at least 3-4 columns. Good luck!

Yes, you can use MIT licensed scripts in your item. Here’s a list of open source licenses which you can use, although they do have some minor differences among different licenses.

The logo is horrible, to be honest. The hero image text should also be aligned centre vertically but the bigger issue lies with legibility. That orange is not really legible when used on that background image and the hover state of the navigation menu items are even more illegible.

The shadow upon hovering the items under ‘About Us’ also looks bad. It would be better without it or use very subtle shadow if you want. The same applies to all shadow effects on hover.

The arrows for Portfolio items are not vertically aligned in the middle too, aside from the badly-stretched images (you should crop them to proper aspect ratio). The portfolio items are quite ‘useless’ without links or lightbox pop-up.

Overall I think it’s a mediocre design with plenty of issues.
