Probably. Not sure though.

If only there was a search engine or something… that would be so useful!

Oh wait! Here you go!

Jokes aside… you really need to start using google to look for these kind of thing… There are thousands of websites on web design obviously, you just need to start looking for them. You can even find websites about websites on web design.

A soft-rejection means that your item still has problems, so obviously you need to fix them before you can start selling it. Reviewers are not there to teach you how to code a theme correctly, they are there just to tell you if it is ready or not.

A good idea would be to take a full day and check your item for things that you might have missed (not only the ones that the reviewer mentioned) and only then resubmit.

Another is to just submit it several times and use the time between reviews to work on a new item!

I really don’t see where the big issue is…

Don’t get why you changed it in the first place just to display less information?

Guys your themes are awesome. Congratulations! In regards your topic, what sense for high-skilled (as you’re looking for) web-developer to share with you his profit? For design only? But there are tons of awesome designs in PSD category. No need to be genius designer to make well-looking theme, unlike well-written theme. He can share a small percent with PSD-author or be inspired browsing PSD-designs. Seriously, if he able to do everything then what sense for him?

Hey, thanks!

I don’t agree with you so much on that regard… I think it is actually harder to come up with a unique and beautiful design than writing good code. We are not looking for a “genius developer”, just a good one. We think we can design concepts that are more unique than the ones that are found on the PSD category, which is very important for sales.

Anyway, we are open to consider any kind of deal, so please feel free to contact us with whatever proposal you think is fair if you are interested :)

We are a team of two: a designer and a developer (myself). We have two themes for sale here and are very close to reaching the elite status already! So our experience here has been very good. Right now we are about to finish our third theme.

This experience tells us that the most important thing to make a theme that sells well is a good design. However, designs must be implemented and we have found that this process takes more time than the design phase.

This is why we are looking for a Web/WordPress developer (that is: CSS, HTML, WordPress (PHP), Javascript) who should be able to take a PSD design and create a WordPress theme from scratch. He should:

  • Be experienced on WordPress theme development and guidelines.
  • Be familiarised with ThemeForest’s submission requirements.
  • Have a good CSS knowledge, that is writing clean code for responsive layouts following the best practices.
  • Have a good Javascript and jQuery knowledge. That is writing clean, modularised, reusable code, know how to write a jQuery plugin, follow Javascript’s best practices.
  • Have a good WordPress and PHP knowledge. That is being familiarised with WordPress’s API, know how to write a WordPress plugin, be familiarised with at least one framework for developing the theme’s backend.

We think the best option is to pay a percentage of the sales to the developer, so that’s the model we are going to choose. However, if you have a different proposal, then by all means let us know!

Also, if you are experienced on CSS, HTML and Javascript but not WordPress, please also contact us, maybe we can work something out!

If you are interested please contact me at sebastian@explora.com.uy and include the following:

  • Previous work you have done.
  • What percentage of the sales would you like to perceive.
  • Would you be willing to also provide support for the theme? In that case, what additional percentage of the sales would you like to perceive?
  • If you have a themeforest portfolio, please mention it!
  • If you have any other deal ideas please mention them as well

Regards,
Sebastian

Please, anyone else?

Just left you some feedback. I’m not a designer but still I think the suggestions I left may help you!

I think your design still needs a lot of work but keep up the hard work and you’ll get accepted eventually. Good luck!

Sebastian

That’s true, but how theme with 3 ratings of 5 stars can be higher of theme with 35 ratings with 5 stars? Thanks :)

+1

If one theme has 5.00 average rating and 6 ratings and another has 5.00 average rating and 3 ratings, the former should be listed first, shouldn’t it?

Thanks for reporting this issue! We’ve now deployed a fix for it, so that the rating stars displayed in search results should match those displayed on the item pages. If you see any other strange behaviour in relation to ratings on the new faceted search, feel free to let me know! :)

Looks great. Thanks for the quick response!
