You guys are golden!

EDIT : Also, the reviewer mentioned something like Visual Inconsistencies. Would you mind seeing if there’s anything that escapes my eye ? I tend to spot this things right away, but it seems something slips me this time.

Thanks @Tean , @kriskorn and @freshface . Until now, I’ve got this noted down:

@Tean : That could be a good idea and it could make the theme have a more artistic feel. Good point all in all.

@kriskorn: The meta part is something that doesn’t bother me at the moment. I’ll “go with a fine toothed-comb over it” and see if it can be improved.

The theme is wrapped in a 1200px container. There’s been lots of 12px fonts on ThemeForest, but no 16px, 18px. A 18px is Lora is almost the equivalent of a 16px Georgia.

Thanks kriskorn for your input!

@Freshface: I think that switching places between sidebar and content is a good idea & giving the most important thing, the content more room to breath is as well a good idea.

Do you think the spacing should be done both on macro (blocks of content) and micro level (line-height, letter spacing), or only macro?

Regarding the colours, I believe the B&W photography does a good trick. Using colored pictures will make it lose it’s (the theme) feel, me thinks.

Thanks a lot guys! If there’s more you can add, do not hesitate :) , I love constructive criticism.

Hello there fellow authors and dear community,

It is the first time for me posting a theme in the forums for help, but this time I’m really clueless. Would you mind helping me in improving this theme? It is soft-rejected for the second time. First time, uniqueness was cited, saying the theme’s design lacks details. The second time, this is the review message I got:

“Your item Ravage: Big & Bold WordPress Theme isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:

The changes are not enough. When a change is requested it should be significant enough to change the look and feel of the site. Changing a few elements does not change the visual inconsistencies in your design.

If you’re unsure how to proceed and need further feedback, you might consider asking for input from other community members and designers via our forums. http://themeforest.net/forums"

I don’t want to argue with the reviewer’s decision, because I think he has a point, there is something that escapes my eye. He mentions something about visual inconsistencies. Can you help me with that?

If it feels unfinished, then I definitely want to improve it.

Thanks for all your feedbacks :) seems like MT is the best choice.

I know this is an old forum, but can I ask you if you moved to Media Temple and what plan you’ve subscribed? Your themes seem to load fine. I’m with ServInt at the moment, and I’ve recently upgraded to a SuperVPS plan (about $200/mo.), but too many downtimes for a so expensive plan.

Thank you.

Manuel :-)

If you’re using only WordPress sites, go with WPEngine (which is better than MT, in this case), if not, go with Media Temple.

what if the filter calculates how many time your post had been flagged in the past and blocks you because of that?

That would be pretty smart!

I will be one of the first to adopt this type of plugins. I’ve changed my philosophy of what a theme needs to be.

“Portfolio” post type with the “portfolio-type” taxonomy. Post meta fields: Date, Client, URL . Another CPT I see often used on TF is : Events

It’s truly awesome that you’re doing this for the community!

Would this theme suffice: modernmanipulator.com :) ?
@uniquemasters: NO, because it’s a shameless copy after my BuddyPress styling. Just took a look at the Activity page and it was enough. Why don’t you guys come up with something on your own, something original?

Hey there,

So here we go:
  • Download BuddyPress again from here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress/
  • After extracting, go to /buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/ folder.
  • There you’ll have your ajax.php and global.js files. Copy those in your theme /includes folder or whatever folder structure you might use.
  • Conditionally load them by using the following function:
if ( !is_admin() && function_exists('bp_is_active') ) { //bp_is_active is a native BP function which tells you exactly what the name says - If BuddyPress is active or not.
    // Enqueue your styles and scripts here.
}

//Here you'll require_once the ajax file if BuddyPress is activated
if (function_exists('bp_is_active'))
    require_once(ICY_FILEPATH . '/includes/ajax.php' );

All this code should be in your functions.php file.

I hope you got the point now :)
