Hey guys!

Just finished my first theme and submit it for review one minute ago! I feel my body looks like a chair after 7 months of hard work on this theme :D

The first day that I started for this project, I was thinking that sending a theme to Themeforest is a simple and easy work but now I understand that how much do these works worth.

What was your feeling after your first submission? I’m very excited to see If my theme will get a good place in popular page after being approved ;)

Thanks everyone as I learnt too much here on the forum.

Really need your advice.

Here is the demo url: http://demo.themique.com/ultraflex

Why should this theme get a hard reject only after 3 minutes after submission?

Themique,

See first your website color scheme and then your ULTRAFLEX logo colors its contradict, no match, your theme top dropdown navigation give feel so have, too much padding and big buttons.

The good part is your theme is full feature packed package but overall its like 2years old template design.

You just need to make your homepage design creative the other inside pages are good.

Thanks webdesignerart for your reply,

Well actually I didn’t believe that the review process will finish in 3 minutes after theme submission. I was planning for myself to put multiple homepage and colors and layouts options on the demo site tomorrow…

Do you think that after I made improvements on homepage(s) and other demo issues, Should I resubmit this theme (As it was hard rejected)?

Thanks

P.s. Moderators, Please move this thread to item discussion if it’s possible.

Your theme is nice and has complete features.

In term of design, I think you need better homepage demo. You can create several options of homepage, and show the best one for the main homepage demo. I know that Revolution Slider is popular, but you need alternative slider to show…

In term of code, I think you have to optimize your code again, especially how you load your javascript and CSS code. You have too many scipts&styles files on the head section…

Thanks PrimaThemes,

I’ll consider your advice for sure. You are giving me hope as I need it after this quick rejection for long time of working :)

So, till now, I have 2 homepage and one code optimization advice. I’ll appreciate the next advice too…

Just a question… As this is my first submission, I put too much comments in the message to reviewer field. Is it possible that this helped the rejection? May be the reviewer thought that there is a problem that I’m putting too much instructions…?
