Thanks for precious advices!

I’m trying to fix issues.

Effectively contrast in nav is poor.. I think part of problem is photoshop aliases. When I put nav on html I will see if color is too much light.. Probably I will put a darker grey.

Thanks!

Thanks all for feedback!

libertux I’m very happy for your positive comment! This give me more energy to improve theme and to try to be accepted in themeforest! If you like my work I think there is someone else who could buy this theme.

BenSheppard thank you for advices!

It’s all really squashed together
I think this type of layout need to be full of informations. I used 20px of space everywhere. Obviously our theme isn’t based on this logic -> http://demo.gavick.com/wordpress/meetgavernwp/
Our next theme will be based on that logic (I like so much your theme!)

Spacing issues
Probably I understood where you see issue, but can you give me some example of space issue? So I can solve them!

Your dropdown comes down too slow (petty one but it’s annoying)
You are right. I can speedup! Obviously there is an option in our framework, so I only need to login in demo wp and set better values in menĂ¹ options.

Your footer looks off
This comment needs explanation. Do you think the footer is too much dark? Probably I could add a bg pattern and make it more clear (not dark grey..)

I really don’t think the nav suits the theme
For nav I think to add a GFont and arrange better logo, icons and search (as I wrote in my second post). Probably we need a better idea for submenus. PS = Can anyone reply to my second post (my ideas for improvement)? Thanks!

More spacing betwen section of the website.
More padding to elements.

Just a little test. Change
.featured-zone-shadows -> Remove height
.feat_one_fourth { margin-bottom:20px; margin-top:20px;}
#before-content-content {padding:40px;}

This is just to have an idee of what spacing could do to not make the site look cluttered.

Unfortunaltely we received another reject for this theme.

Your template does not provide a unique enough design with the necessary design quality, features and options to compete in the marketplace at this time. As higher quality templates become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.

You might consider improving your design with more unique features and graphics in order for it to stand out among other marketplace items.

However, a unique design will be a key factor for approval. I know it’s frustrating to be rejected citing uniqueness but recently, we’ve gotten a large number of template with the same overall features and presentation and we have to draw the line somewhere.

However, we do accept themes with similar structure but in condition it provides better quality in terms of aesthetic or features.

Feedback sounds as an invite to add more fantastic features because the structure or design is not enough unique.

Ok. They are right, it need more features..

We were thinking about:

  • change XHTML to HTML5
  • add conditional responsive option
  • buy a professional slider as “Revolution Slider”
  • redesign portfolio using isotope library
  • add many preset styles
  • add color chooser for many parts of theme
  • add some different pattern
  • add GFont chooser for different parts of theme
  • change demo images theme (no more interior design, but something of cool buying commercial photos)

Another thing would be change submission category.. Probably level for CORPORATE > BUSINESS is too high for our theme..

What do you think about?

Thanks

u dont need to buy premium stuff to be accepted, you just have to respect the quality of the marketplace items , compare ur theme with premium themes in the same category and try to see the differences .. do the doctype Html5 , a portfolio filter & some pre styles its a good idea ..

and work in “how to project” “why choose this theme” and footer , those sections are tight . needs better spacing :P
