So lately I’ve been kinda frustrated with figuring out how to break into the large profits that so many authors see here on TF. I really love doing non-traditional, unique web design, but it seems like that’s not a very popular style for templates. I’ve been looking through the Top Files section for a while, trying to figure out what sells and what doesn’t, and it seems like almost all of the files in that section adhere to the same two or three layouts/structures.

Anyway, I’ve been working on this design, and I was just curious what other people think of it- regardless of whether it looks nice, etc., do you think it would sell well? : http://5byfive.net/collision.jpg

Also, another question. It seems like (in general) Wordpress themes sell far better than regular HTML /CSS templates, and I don’t really understand why. Obviously for blog/news type sites, Wordpress is superior, but there are many templates for companies, portfolios, etc. that are done in Wordpress, and I don’t really understand why they sell so much better seeing as they really aren’t the types of sites where content needs to be updated frequently.

Anyway, thanks for any help/comments!

Do threads in the ‘Item Discussion’ forum not show up under ‘All Topics’?

It could, but I highly recommend to change your color scheme. I think this concept will fit good on dark background.

Also add more space and play with the typography. Translucent 2 PSD Templates is a good example. Be elegant and simple.

I agree with simon.

The color scheme doesn’t really work for me either, but then I am not a green-type of person. If you want to keep the green, keep the darker variety and replace the central color with some silver, grey, white … or go with another color scheme altogether.

To answer your question – “Do you think this would sell?” – I will say yes, this may sell.

But let me tell this not the question that you should be asking.

You should ask Will this get approved?

And frankly I doubt about that. because I am reading many posts here about rejections probably you should really try to make a “premium” theme.

And for the second question: Threads of ‘Item discussion’ are not available under all topics as you figured out already.

cheers.
