i wonder if using PHP Frameworks like Zend Framework will be a good idea for scripts sold here? or will “normal” PHP work better?
this was the msg
“This template has a nice concept going but doesn’t provide the unique aesthetics we are looking for in the PSD category. You might consider coding this and submitting it to the HTML Templates category as it doesn’t have quite as rigorous aesthetic requirements. You might also consider taking a look at some of our most popular items to get an idea for what we’re looking for or ideas to help improve your template.”
i felt that if it cannot get into the PSD maybe it means theres something i can improve, thought i wanted to get some ideas here
i updated the design abit. added a more modern look which does away with serif headers
i have continued to have the old style oh serif headers alittle bigger fonts also. but added the “modern” look option. i dunno if by doing this makes it more messy … but i thought it shld be too much harm to have 1 more option.
this is my 1st template here, do i have much chance? the 1st time i submitted this, it was rejected because some CSS does not validate and i need a help file, dunno if theres anything else.
@twincircuits – i probably try to have other css for patterns if possible.
@joelvardy – i’ll fix those things u mentioned.
abt the typo styles, i dunno if i done too much or will it be useful. but nvm good practice anyways.
i wonder if its an advantage to use a CSS framework like blueprint CSS or 960gs? i guess what i mainly use is the grid system only. so some say including the whole framework is a waste of resources. do buyers use such frameworks? i guess it makes it easy for them only if they know the framework, or are intending to use it?
i have submitted a template which got rejected last week, one of the reasons was IE6 /7 support. i still am having trouble fixing css bugs for those browsers. now i am getting really frustrated. why still require support for IE6 ?
it has tons of problems with simple box models, margins and paddings, floats etc. and its not like IE6 and 7 bugs are the same. sometimes fixing one causes problems in another. i know theres conditional css where i can differentiate for those 2 browsers. but i will need to split fixes for each browser … and know what bugs occur in what browser …
i kind of feel the min requirement shld be support modern browsers only which include browsers like firefox, safari, opera, maybe just IE8 . of course support for more browsers will be a plus
