I would recommand you not to stick with one of these frameworks. After all, you want to sell a theme, not a child theme I also don’t think that your theme will be accepted for sale on TF if it is built on Genesis, WooFramework, etc.
They will give you a good reset, an extremely solid CSS /JS base. This is the most important for you. Afterwards, it will be extremely easy to build your theme following your exact needs.
All the best !
Thank you for the fast answer ! I have tried the suggested solution and it does not work I will try to set up a test environment to try different combinations !
Hi everybody, I am a new WordPress developer on ThemeForest and so far i enjoy it very much ! People know what they are looking for and have very high standarts, which pushes all developers and designers to always provide the best.
I have uploaded my very first theme a few days ago : Aleph and i am experiencing a major bug.
I use the haschange plugin by Ben Alman for the ajax part of the website.
And the demo absolutely does not work in IE8 while it does with IE9 .
The error i get says that the [href=*] attribute is not recognized. As i am not a windows/IE expert, i am completely out of ideas on how to fix this.
Any help would be extremely appreciated !
Thanks a lot !
I pretty much agree with the previous comments.
First of all, the features are very very basic as of what we can see today on the market.
You have to get a unique design and this means, beside the main idea, some basic consistence in color palette, typography, visual hierarchy, whitespace, etc.
I would suggest you to forget about this template, and start a new one from scratch. Take a white paper and a pencil, spend some time browsing available themes and look up at dribbble, focus on a specific idea, and finally use a good framework (Skeleton, Bootstrap, HTML5 Reset).
I hope this should do it. If you are a new wordpress developer/designer, you should be very patient as i think it takes a minimum of 1-2 years of practice to really understand the market tendancies and requirements.
Good luck !
Just wondering : should it be a plugin or a page template or can it be in any other way ?
good luck to everyone !
Thanks a lot mates !
6 or 8 rejections for some of you, i didn’t think it was possible !
@ SplitV : I think this is what the reviewer means by unique. I had not realised the actual design could give this impression ! Thank you for the tip, I now have a better view of where i might head.
@ CyberShot : thank you for the encouragements !
@ bfintal : thank you for all the points, i will go through them carefully ! I really appreciate it !
All in all, what does good Typography mean ? Is it a matter of color, of space, of size ? For sure it is a mix of all of these, but i can’t manage to see what’s wrong, maybe because i have seen the template thousands of time.
Also, what about spacing ? Do you recommend much spacing ? In my opinion the visual hierarchy comes with elements not too close from each other.
I got rejected today for my submission of a WordPress theme for the second time, and i must say i am starting to be depressed because i have left my job two month ago to work as a freelancer.
I know many of you might have passed through this when you first started, and your feedback would be really appreciated at this moment.
I have searched through the forum, and i realized it was always the same “abstract” rejection reasons that were given.
For my second submission, i have taken in account all the details the reviewer had noted (i had asked for a follow-up the first time). I am now out of inspiration.
Now i am completely lost and afraid lose my submission privilege if it is rejected for the third time.
Here’s a link to the live demo, please tell me what you think about the design, what makes it not unique ?http://www.lesfeuillesmortes.com/
I am always hooked to the new additions to see the tendancies and i often realise that some templates feature much less options than mine, with even lower quality design (in my opinion) and get approved.
What do you think ?
