Hey guys and girls,

I just found this on 9gag and I wanted to share, knowing that will not be the only one having a good after-work chuckle about it :)

Disclaimer: It’s just fun! :)

I don’t know if the rule still stands, but in general if your item is approved in a “lower value” category it’s automatically accepted (near enough, assuming it meets standards) in the higher category. For example, if you get a PSD approved it used to be that you would then have a 99% chance of that being accepted as a HTML theme, as well as a WP/Joomla/eCommerce template etc.

Not sure about the lower value point but PSD is most likely to get accepted as WP, and WP most likely to get accepted as HTML. If an HTML is great it does have great chances for WP.

Looking at Kiev, it might not be unique enough so I don’t think anybody could guarantee the approval in that case, maybe you will receive a soft rejection with the chance to improve it. But give it a shot if WP conversion is something you are comfortable doing :)

All the best and good luck!

You’re welcome!

Indeed, definitely check the item comments – sales are not as important tho since flawless, wonderful themes are released regularly and only build their sales over time. So when looking at sales, look at sales compared to release date instead of just overall sales.

All the best and good luck with your project!

Hi, maybe rephrasing your question would lead to more answers, as I’m not sure what you mean by “is themeforest allowed to do that” – do you maybe mean whether or not you are allowed to do it on themeforest?

Hi!

Not 100% sure what you mean by the difference between the sorting features but I will try to explain:

Searching for “Beauty” for example will give you results of themes categorized, tagged etc. Beauty, in the order of most relevant according to your search to least relevant.

Sales refers to the number of sales, but it might happen that the item at the top is a generic theme not really in that niche, but still can be used for that, so the keyword might appear somewhere in the item details page. Some items appear on the top of the Sales sorting for a lot of keywords, even tho they are just a generic theme, so that’s a good strategy to get more sales but it doesn’t necessarily fulfil a buyer’s needs of a niche theme.

Rating sorts by rating, but I assume it’s the same principle as above.

So for choosing a theme that really has a lot going on niche-wise over a wunderkind type of theme that can potentially become anything, but only if you invest to push it into that niche, I would recommend going for Best Match, then looking at sales and rating (comments!) yourself.

But recommending a theme that has a lot of sales and good ratings (again, comments are important!) oftentimes means they have great support and are easily adaptable, but more time would need to be invested comparing to choosing a “branded”, smaller theme.

For small to maybe medium businesses a branded niche theme often has a lot more value, since wunderkind themes have to be able to do anything the customers want. They are loaded with features and can potentially be overwhelming for the buyer OR overwhelming for the middle-man who then has to strip features out since the end-client won’t need them. This has to be considered as well.

Let me know if that helped!

Mel
