I would start with the header right on top.
Take time to design a simple logo that looks nice – at the moment the tagline gives the exact feeling for what we see – just another WordPress site…
The dropdown submenus look bad, try aligning them just under the blue header.
I would change the font – not sure about Helvetica with this type of design
Work on the blog design – it looks very generic and you can’t even click on the featured image to enter the post – this should be changed.
Featured page – is your theme name Flatso or Connecto? This page looks too plain, spend some time making it look good!
Comments display need work
Typography, contact form, The list goes on.. everything looks like it’s been put there with default styling.
What about theme options?
I am not trying to be rude, but if you look at the WP Themes for sale here on TF, yours is nowhere near ready to be accepted. At the moment it looks like a free theme, definitely not premium.
I certainly believe you spent a lot of time working on it, but it will certainly need a lot more time spent on it before it gets accepted.
My opinon (agree to disagree):
- logo needs work
- need to change font and make it bigger (input, footer)
- not sure about the borders in the social links, text input and countdown
- fix typo ‘launch’ and not ‘luanch’
- social icons are not center aligned properly
It’s probably a bit too simple (minimal is ok, but maybe a unique functionality could be added) to be accepted as is.
Coded the right way, this should be accepted in the HTML category. It will also sell much better in there than the PDF version
I am pretty sure this would be accepted in the HTML template / landing page categories, provided it’s coded the right way and displaying thoughtful animations. Looking very nice!
Why don’t you guys ask the error and issues questions in the support forum provided for Runway? I think this thread would be more interesting with discussions of what Runway can / can’t do and where it’s going in the future.
I personally think it’s a great tool for developing WordPress Themes – i am no master at this (one day i will) and the very well documented files on the Liftoff demo child theme are extremely helpful to me.
Thanks @parallelus and your team for putting together this as an open-source project, this is really awesome!
Bedros i see you have exactly 2000 sales – good work!
Same here but I think there is something going on with Envato APIs as also the other app I have for sales push notifications is not ‘pushing’ anymore since a few days (worked fine over the last year or so).
I am using tabvn and it is working properly for me. GreenPaw has become completely dead since a few days – i thought i had run out of my trial period..
Yeah, i guess it’s the way to go.. And a few minutes after finding the site, i googled “My_Template_Name Free Download”.. don’t ever do that as it’s depressing!! So many links..
The thing is, most these sites are torrent sites or require some sort of login, or spam popups or any sort of ‘effort’ needed to get to download, but the one i found first just plain displays the templates with a download button that directly downloads the file, effortlessly.
Anyway, thanks for your feedback!
I just found – thanks to google analytics – a pirate website where i can see many templates from TF (including mine) available for free download.
I’m not going to link the site here since it would make more people download the files for free – but i want to know what the procedure is to take those @ssholes down..
I have opened a ticket on envato support and contacted a few authors which have their template there too, but is there anything else i could do?
Grrrr this makes me so upset, no wonders my sales have dramatically dropped..
Yeah, i feel sorry for Ultimatum the way this thread shifted
Man, that looks so promising! I still have a bunch to learn before i can create a TF-ready theme, but Runway is certainly a big help and the documentation in the files of the Liftoff childtheme is extremely insightful to me!
