Hi All,

I’ve got a small arrow icon next to my menu items, looks perfect in Chrome, but aligned too high vertically in IE8 . Anyone got any idea what I need to change to re-align it? I’ve modified the arrow css padding/margin, but no joy.

The menu’s here: http://www.mytrialdomain.com/2013/

The css in question is:

.navigation-wrapper .sf-sub-indicator { float: none; margin-right: 0; margin-left: 7px; width: 8px; height: 8px; display: inline-block; text-indent: -9999px; background: url(http://www.mytrialdomain.com/2013/wp-content/themes/bluediamond/images/d-arrow.png) center no-repeat; }

Any help appreciated!

Cheers,

Dan

Could explain why so many people get their themes rejected without a logical explanation as to why it was rejected. Especially since I have seen some themes that are very “simple” in their designs. Also, why reject anyone who wants to make a little money on their work? We’re only selling them for $15 at the most, not $2,500 like template monster.

Because, as a regular buyer, I don’t want to wade through thousand’s of shit themes to find a decent one. If anything, there should be LESS approvals on themeforest.

Not that I don’t agree with you Dan, but have you actually tried to test-drive the theme in IE8 before purchasing?

Now I’m not saying that it’s just your fault – if someone says his product does X and Y, Envato should make sure it’s true. And yes, in a perfect world, you wouldn’t need to worry about statements being true.
But we don’t live in such a world, so a simple check on your side will make sure nothing like what you said happens :)

No I didn’t, but do I now need to test all of the theme’s I’m thinking of purchasing against every single different browser/version/variation?

This is a wholly unrealistic expectation to have of buyers, when these checks have supposedly been carried out already as part of the approvals process.

+1 to all of that.

I’d also add, a LOT of themes I’ve purchased recently claim to support some of the older browsers (ie8). However, if you actually purchase them and start to try and use the theme, you quickly discover there are a huge number of problems with older browsers.

Where is the QA?

Can we get an official response on this, it’s such an irritant every time I use the site. Judging by the comments here, I’m not the only one that would like to see this ‘feature’ removed.

It can’t be a huge change?

I think your design just gave me a headache.

Incredible.

It’s the blind leading the blind.

Can you design me SOMETHING ?

Yeah sure, £1,000. This is based on the solid principle that SOMETHING takes SOME TIME to design and develop.

I’ll make a prediction right now, neither party will end up happy.

Starting from scratch is a blank piece of paper, an empty canvas.

A photoshop design isn’t starting from scratch. Coding that design up won’t improve it.

This is a million miles away from the standard required to get approval on Themeforest. Spend a lot of time browsing the best selling themes to get an understanding of what’s required.
