Hey Guys,

Looking to get some feedback on the demo site of a WordPress Magazine theme I have just launched: http://tinyurl.com/q38w6wh

Specifically: - Do you prefer the horizontal menu or do you the hamburger menu at desktop resolutions? - Do you like the views counter? - Do you like the posts tiles sliding in as you scroll?

These are all theme options, but just wanting to see what other people like/think so I can improve the demo site.

...and if anyone has a nice gravatar feel free topost a nice comment on a post? :P

Cheers, Heath

Yeah same here it’s been 5-6 days….any one got longer than 1 week or lucky enough get approved less than 5 days? We need a clarification from Staff here, is it true only Kailoon and Ivor work for all categories submission (heard from an author in other thread)? I can’t believe if that’s true. I can’t imagine how their work load. does not make any sense with how many new items submitted each day.

I’ve only had Ivor or Kailoon – everytime Ivor reviews it he reviews old files.

If there are only the two resources, that would be disgraceful considering the revenue ThemeForest makes.

It has taken me over a month. Compounded by the review team reviewing old files multiple times. I haven’t had a review all week. The 2 reviews before that were of old files. All in all it’s been over 2 weeks since I have had the latest files actually reviewed. I’m at the point of forgetting ThemeForest and selling on wordpress.com and my own site.

Try to add message to reviewer when you upload file and explain the problem in few words and tell what is exact name of new uploaded and updated file that you are sending.

Yes, each time I submitted I left comments/communication, explaining the situation and the new file names. I even tried emailing the reviewer out of desperation – no response.

Yes, that is what I was doing to begin with when the problem first started. There must have been a problem with the files overwriting So to avoid the problem and have some way of indicating what the updated files are I started giving them version numbers.

I’m so frustrated. Soft rejected again for files that no longer exist – hasn’t existed for weeks. 5th time this has happened. I change the main file and theme file names each time and files have been uploaded via ftp. Then it takes another 2-3 days for it to be reviewed again and I just have to cross my fingers that they review the right files.

I tried support but all they responded with was explanation of the difference between soft rejections and hard rejections and closed the ticket.

I’ve noticed when it happens, my daily upload, lists 2 instances of the submission.

I find this whole process so unprofessional. I don’t know where to go from here. I imagine the only thing to do now is delete the submission all together and resubmit, maybe even create a new account as well?

Thanks guys. I had appended the main files and the theme files with a version number. I have submitted again and changed the file names completely and added to the notes for the reviewer. Hopefully he uses the right files.

Thanks FlatKing. The ticket ID is: #JUR-918-48704

My frustration is exacerbated by having it happen twice in a row, after I left specific notes for the reviewer. I know it helps no one, but when you’ve heavily invested time and energy into something…

I’m so frustrated I’m at boiling point. I submitted a theme that had been soft rejected on Sunday. It took over 2 days for it to be reviewed. When it was reviewed the reviewer seemed to have reviewed files that were 2 iterations old and soft rejected me for 2 files that don’t exist anymore/functionality that no longer exists. I double checked the files I uploaded and made certain I had not made a mistake. I then appended the files with a “v01” and communicated it to the reviewer to make sure there could be no possible confusion. I then had to wait another 3 days for the theme to be reviewed again, and now I have been rejected for the same bloody errors. What am I supposed to do now?

Notes from the reviewer: 1. Fix http://envato.d.pr/mRpx/nsVd8vfG

How am I supposed to fix these errors when breadcrumbs.php no longer exists, nor does line 152 in class-Upbootwp_Walker_Nav_Menu.php

...and Themeforest support doesn’t respond with anything other than an automated email.

Confused, frustrated, angry.
