Hi everyone,

My wordpress theme was rejected (i think i’m not alone ;{)

url of the site – Sophis – elegant theme

rejecting reason given by ‘inspector’:

This File Did Not Meet Our Criteria

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this template. Unfortunately, due to our high standards, your template has been declined.

Here are a few improvements you might consider making before resubmitting.

1) Overall template typography needs additional refinements and improvements before it will be ready for ThemeForest.

2) Your template has a good start but, as we have high standards, you will need to make some additional improvements in overall aesthetics and aspects such as typography, graphics, and spacing.

I sent my humble request for few more precision details, and in the meantime i was curious of your opinions (more experienced authors).

I will be more than gratefull for that.

You have a really nice start :)

I’m not a big fan of the menu and buttons, I mean the gradient could be more subtle and in the drop down for example, I wouldn’t go to black at the bottom of each item. Same for the buttons.

Some other thoughts :

  • Space under headings (typography page) would look better
  • This white with dark inner shadow used for fields / text area doesn’t fit in the design for me (search field and contact form)
  • Spacing in the footer (the first line sticks to the top and there’s a huge space right after
  • Some space under each blog post image

It looks like the image loader you’re using doesn’t work well.

Good luck :)

Spacing in the footer (the first line sticks to the top and there’s a huge space right after

Agree with Keliah, you’ve got a nice start there :)

My remark is color scheme: you should try to lower the saturation of the brown elements and try to make all of them “fit” better.

Good luck :)

@dexterus – it’s because hosting sucks a bit ;}

@FullTank – thanks for opinion, altough I thought the paternized buttons/elements will give a unique feel to this theme…

Nice template but I believe you can’t redisitribute Garamond font with Cufon so you’ll probably have to resolve this issue – otherwise I don’t think it will be accepted because of breaking the license terms.
