Hi @Bedros I believe this is till the case: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821860-Using-Watermarked-Assets-in-Previews but happy to be corrected.

This https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/203269510-What-Assets-Can-I-Use-In-My-Items-#assets-watermarked-assets is also quite useful in regards to photos of celebrities and so on.

Yes you may use a watermarked PhotoDune preview image in your marketplace file preview provided you credit the photographer/author with a linkback from your item description. You may not use/redistribute the preview images in your main file(s).

Opt 1: In your download page click download & select ‘installable WordPress File Only’ & use this (if you can’t see this then it is not a WP theme).

Opt 2: Are you sure you have the WP theme and NOT a HTML file?

Opt 3: Are you using your own hosting and domain NOT WordPress.com

Opt 4: Unzip the theme folder and use ftp to install it

Good Luck

Its actually not bad at all.

Logo looks pixellated

Generally spacing could be better to let it breath more

That custom menu not having something to the right is really annoying

the typography is not bad but its very same – same and quite a lot of bold text i.e. it would be good to differentiate different type elements and styles more (don’t go crazy here as it will probably do more harm than good if it gets really extravagant).

the sidebar is nice (maybe add some padding to the widgets to space them more), but is very close to the main page which makes it difficult to read. Either increase the side margin OR alter the background or box it in to clearly define sidebar from page copy

Generally pretty good.

Some of the typography could do with breathing bit more and definitely lose the copyrighted logos like Coca-Cola and so on.

I’ve seen most of that message before esp. about the minimalism and the similarities.

If I’m honest when I looked at the demo I thought i was another file we saw on here not long ago. Its not a bad concept but its such a crowded category that you have got to find something which sets it apart.

See http://rhythm.bestlooker.pro/mp-index.html and http://e-bootstrap.com/html/nation/landing.html to name a few. They are all quite similar

If it is a hard reject then you need to make considerable changes which owuld include the design. Share the demo link here and people will give you advice

“Unfortunately, your submission is too similar to existing item(s) in our marketplace. Your upload must be a unique concept not based on any existing marketplace item.”

It is very similar to a lot of files here. Definitely your biggest issue

Link? That’s a hard reject so normally more than just validation issues
