You have a good product at hand, don’t give up! Keep adjusting stuff until you get it approved. I think this was a mistake since your product looks good enough to me.

Pure white doesn’t have good contrast with the dark backgrounds from the header and footer. If you’re going to use white, then you’ll have to use lighter background colors on the header and footer.

It’s OK having a light background, but pure white seems a bit extreme. I would use #f7f7f7 instead of pure white. Looks light and doesn’t burn your eyes.

Make the font size 14px instead of 16px, and it will be a much more pleasant design.

Themes should not be underpriced just because monster themes are priced as they are. Item pricing is barely fair as it is, so it makes absolutely no sense to reduce the price just to account for the new monster themes.

Clever marketing? C’mon you gotta be kidding me. This is a good marketing move, I’ll give you that. A Marketing Masterpiece. But it is clever in the sense of screwing up the other themes because they can’t compete with 3 themes in 1 + 5 premium plugins + 50 homepages.

This is not competition, its smashing the little ones. I think monster themes should be categorized as bundles, separate from normal themes, and also priced a bit higher due to all of the stuff included in them. Also, if it’s such a big theme it could also be sold on its own website and create a business around it.

Picture this scenario: You have 10 cars for sale, out of those you got consumer level cars from normal brands, then you have 1 Bugatti for the same price as the others. The rest is left to your imagination…

Long story short, this is unsustainable competition.

How can you expect a new author to be motivated to start on the marketplace: “Ok, so if I want to sell my theme to sell I gotta…. Nah I’ll just do freelance or get a job.”

If this does not stop, the marketplace will end up like the app stores, where 2% of the developers take 98% of the profits. To envato this makes absolutely no difference, yet to authors it is devastating, specially those working hard to make a living selling items on the marketplaces.

Instalaste el Zip que descargaste de ThemeForest. Ese no es el Zip que tienes que instalar.

Extrae los contenidos del Zip y dentro encontrarĂ¡s el Zip del theme que tienes que instalar.
