Hi, I’ve just tried for my second theme on the themeforest market place I cant seem to get published.

The site is at: http://methodtec.com/libertas/

Kindly tell me what is wrong with this theme, any feedback is useful.

Why would you pay for this theme or why would you not buy it?

Sorry but with all due respect you are way off the standard for here. You really need to check out other files for sale here especially the bigger selling one and the level of attention to detail that goes into them.

- Your logo looks completely out of place

- The typography is all over the place

- Shortcodes esp buttons are broken

- All the ages look v similar

- individual events look uneven and empty spacing

- Header/footer/nav need re thinking

- Is it meant to be responsive because it breaks like crazy on smaller screen.

- Your code does not validate

You need to set bg position fixed on .main-body – when scrolling the bg flickers.

Your text is running out of the container: http://methodtec.com/libertas/?page_id=168#social

Buttons are busted: http://methodtec.com/libertas/?page_id=168#buttons

Shortcodes are broke: /one_half

Alignment issues: http://69.4.236.48/kicc/?post_type=tribe_events&p=808

Alignment and padding issues: http://69.4.236.48/kicc/?page_id=2

Half the menu is gone: http://69.4.236.48/kicc/?page_id=782

Page scrolls for no reason http://69.4.236.48/kicc/?page_id=668

Needs TLC and style: http://methodtec.com/libertas/?page_id=778

Look at last paragraph compare to the rest of the paragraphs: http://methodtec.com/libertas/?page_id=167 – also, content container touches bottom of page – implying I need to keep scrolling – but it’s end of page.

Block quotes left border almost invisible: http://methodtec.com/libertas/?page_id=166

Copyright need better spacing on bottom

Me, personally, I don’t care for the colors.

I also agree with Charlie

Pretty much everything has been said, I think you should start with something smaller. Seems like you still don’t have the necessary experience to go through Themeforest, maybe try codecanyon first, develop some small scripts.

You still have a long way to go but with hard work and perseverance you’ll get there :)

You should start learning some principles and work your way up, here’s an intereting site for you to learn: Tree house

Hope it helps, good luck!

I will advice you to start it from a scratch, this theme have so many flows.

Keep upgrading your skills, learn and your theme might get approved some day.
