Very clean. Perhaps a bit too clean? It seems to be lacking a few features.

What did the reviewer say?

it was rejected with common message as it “requires significant improvements” and “doesn’t meet our current minimum technical quality requirements”.

We are wondering if the problem can’t be because big part of theme’s code (html and JS) is taken from this theme http://themeforest.net/item/muza-categorized-portfolio-theme-for-tumblr/4281543 Both themes were coded by the same person although each item is under different TF account (PhantasiaAeterna account is just one man project, this ShakespeareThemes is two persons collaboration – just to make things clear) So I am wondering if the reviewer didn’t considered Othello as plagiarism.

But anyway, thanks for your feedback. We try to make it a little bit “dirtier” :)

ha ha not sure it needs to be “dirtier” just have more too it – if you look at most files here remembering it is a marketplace there needs to be opportunities for everyone to make it their own, bearing in mind what that may require and rather than just being a set and ready to go solution. Good luck

I think it looks like a great theme! I was wondering, how do you get the image overlay effect when hovering over an image? Are you using a jQuery plugin or something else?
