Hello,

My template is soft-rejected and one of the reasons given is : Sidebar – unacceptable as it is plain, messy and unfinished. I would really like to hear some advice from you on how I should further improve it. I have been trying to keep the sidebar ‘simple’ and ‘low profile’ so that the users will not be distracted when they read the content, but now it seems that my approach is wrong?

Thanks for helping!

Hello, if you look at the more popular items here in Themeforest, you-ll notice that most sidebars (if they even have one) are below the header area… Perhaps you wanted to be unique, but the way youve separated it doesnt look good to me..

Thats just my own personal impression. keep it up, you can do it! Hope to see your item up in the marketplace soon S.
