Waaaaaaay too much animation dude. A little more subtlety needed.

This insanity has to stop soon. Page builders and a few different header variants (Slider, Static Image etc..) I can live with, but I think it’s really unfair to have these ‘300 themes in one’ priced the same as ‘standard’ WP themes. Like has been mentioned, how can we compete here?? The buyers are going to go for more bang for their buck, and it further devalues many authors on here, who don’t want to create these monster themes!!

I had a comment, and 5 star review from a buyer recently which I think nailed it -

“Very beautiful, well designed theme with good support. Not a whole lot of features, but what it does it does very well”.

I don’t want to have to design & build these monster themes thank you very much, I want to carry on taking my time to create great designs, with enough theme options to make a buyer happy enough.

Let’s not be having this conversation again in 6 months time Envato, hey?

cheers

Have to second that on the preview images?! Remember you’re selling this preview to folks worldwide. Having an attack helicopter hovering over a war-zone is just really odd?!? Something a little more subtle dude!

Quite a few dated elements throughout. Again, colour scheme needs improvement.

Hi mesunil2010,

Sorry to be the guy with the wake up call, but it’s just not as good as you think it is :(

It’s far from a Premium product, and you need to look again at the overall aesthetic. White space, alignment, colour choices, general flow of the page, it all seems a little disjointed, and a cut & paste job.

I’m not being a douche, just a realist here.

Good luck!!

It might be what you felt looking at theme, but there are more facts.

White Space, alignment , color ever thing can be changed. Its just a demo page created using theme builder , its not whole theme. Each block can be designed has unique design. I am not saying my theme is best, but it has the things needed to be premium . I am just saying that themeforest should give detailed reason for rejection. That’s all, no hard feelings. :)

You have to bear in mind that the reviewer will look at the preview you have, just as a buyer would, so it really needs to look as tight as possible. You have to present it in its initial form as well as you can.

And, yes, I agree the reviewers replies can be a little vague sometimes, but they have so much to review they can’t be holding your hand all the way through the process.

Many thanks

I have used, or at least dabbled with the many theme option frameworks available, and I can say without question that Redux Framework is the best one currently available.

It’s ease of customisation, learning curve, documentation, ease of use for the end-user, support, feature set etc… are above and beyond any other framework I’ve come across.

cheers

Hi folks,

Have tried attempting to update my WP versions (ie to 3.9) in the item details, but it’s not been reflected on the front-end currently?

thanks
