I guess my header is too “Generic”.....Says the reviewer.

http://adapt.themescience.net/index.html

I don’t see why its too generic, I aimed to make it simplistic. Now I guess I have to make it more busy to be approved..

Its no more “Generic” than other themes I see on here…. Can someone help with that?

Also the reviewer says I should get rid of the icons in the footer… I don’t see whats wrong with those either. Any ideas?

I agree that your header is no more “generic” than other themes on here as well. Maybe add a splash of color to it (the blue water drop in the logo could be used). Maybe even add a more dynamic type of drop down menu as well.

I see what the reviewer is saying about the icons in the footer. They are ridiculously small and yes you have text with it to show what it is, but still its unnecessary. Its almost as if that part was an afterthought. Plus, you have the social icons displayed in the header (which is also really small). Maybe bump up the sizes a little in the header.

Ok I will get rid of the icons… Then it will just be text and look “generic”.

I’m actually going to take the social icons up in the header completely out,and put something else in their place… Thanks for your assurance on this.

Hello ThemeScience, love your theme!

I think that the header is too generic in the general context of the template, also the search bar is too lonely up there, and the “pin it” button’s alignment is off. I would ditch it altogether.

The icons themselves on the footer don’t seem bad, it’s the combination with the background that doesn’t do it for me.

Lastly, at the very bottom of the page, the background color is too light, I would make it darker than the div above.

PS: The button animations don’t look too natural, you fade the shadow away to make it seem as it is being pressed but is not too successful at it.

PS2 : You seem to love that pattern, me too :-)

Best of wishes and good luck, Nikos

The top header is still barely visible. I don’t know if this is intentional, but I’m not a big fan of.

You’re using native 32px icons as 16px ones in the footer, thus they appear a bit blurry. Also, try adding some padding around them and right next to them the text itself (what I mean, don’t block the background, just accomodate the icons, the text can fend for itself)

A bug I found (I think): In the pricing tables page, at the Selected Class section, the professional column has a top-border.

Love the icons in the main content, the buttons (not the animation), the call to arms, the plentiful line-height and paddings.

What do you suggest the top header should have in it? lol Nobody liked the icons, nobody liked the search….. Howabout a bunch of animated gifs from 1998?

-- I would love to take your suggestion but can you please clarify what you mean by this?

“Also, try adding some padding around them and right next to them the text itself (what I mean, don’t block the background, just accomodate the icons, the text can fend for itself)”

I just took the animation out of the buttons, is that better? Pls let me know what you think, and thank you for your suggestions so far I really hope they work.

Pretty sure the social icons shouldn’t be there?

Sorry for that, having trouble from time to time with English :-)

I meant something along these lines :

As for the header in general, nothing, ditch it!

The button animation is much better now, you could also restore the previous one just speed it up.

Yes I am just making sure the homepage looks correct for now, and once everyone thinks things look ok, I will update the rest of the pages as well. :)
