Seriously saying, our new releases are being postponed to January as we clearly know December does not bring much sales (it’s the case for us since last 2 years of our humble experience here). May be it’s different for other authors, we don’t know.

So, as far as we could say, it’s best time to take a break, spend a great time with your family & friends, let’s rock on the festival time :)

Guys, seriously saying..this new white BG is not looking good. As Themeforest is not a photography site, excessive white will cause eye strain if viewed continuously…...ooooops….Come on guys…it’s pain for eyes here.

Hi guys, I just want to share some happiness with you.

Today I was simply exploring ‘Creative / Portfolio / Photography’ category here, and it seems like nowadays there comes a lot of great new designs approved on themeforest with innovative layout and effective minimalism.

Many new concept portfolios are being introduced, new style of navigation menus are being invented, typography is becoming more minimal and simple (of course, the credit goes to Montserrat font). And, there are many great templates with fresh design and unique look & feel.

Congrats to all authors trying to bring these new design trends on themeforest – you guys really deserve a big applause :)

The main point of this discussion is that if your theme has 23 distinct views, (that’s styling, not layout) it’s a bundle, not a true theme, and if it takes 50+ demos to showcase your theme

That’s it. Perfectly said, Tom :)

These are not just multiple demos, they are indeed “more themes in one pack”. Different home views are different variations built on the same layout. That is the point here.
I don’t think that there is an item with more themes in one pack. But there are a lot of themes which have a great ability to make totally different layouts and I can say that this ability is equal to the packing more themes in one package.

No. There are some themes / templates that has more themes / templates in it’s pack. We are not calling out the names, but these exist on the marketplace and these collect good money. We personally never like these ‘so called Multi Purpose’ themes. They are destroying the marketplace’s logic (also, another reason why sales are low these days, some ‘mega bundle’ kind of themes may be dominating most of the sales). Envato should take some measures to prevent bundling of many themes within a single item.

Authors can create a single template / theme with a particular style of layout and some additional home page (landing page) variants based on the same layout and design style – We believe this is perfectly allowed here. Anything extra will be ‘too much’.

Hi there,

Your template is good one and we can sense all the great efforts behind this :) Still you can bring something more, just to add that ‘Thumbs Up’ touch.

As far as we could (humbly) say:

1. Just bring an accent / highlight color than making everything Black & White. Buyers will look for a good color that please them.

2. Just try to add something unique between your page sections, something like a subtle parallax with promotional texts, or some kind of useful content but with a unique look and feel suitable to your layout.

3. Throw some more ideas on creating your selection of home variants. Make it stand out from the common templates (and you will get it find accepted)

IMHO, soft-rejection means the template is Okay in the eyes of reviewers, they are expecting something more from this item. That’s all.

All the very best :)
