So I recently submitted an HTML template, but it was rejected, with one of the reasons being that it is not functional with Javascript disabled, and needs to be. However, I can’t figure out how the functionality in my site could be replicated without Javascript. Here’s the site:

http://www.labusdesign.com/simplesteel/index.html

The main problem is the sliders- the large vertical one that contains everything, and the smaller horizontal ones for the portfolio and services. But if javascript is disabled, I don’t understand how it would be possible to move the slider to the correct position, just through a hyperlink.

Thanks for any help!

Also, this is another one of those things I don’t get about the review process. I’ve seen several of the highest selling HTML templates on here, and many of them completely break without javascript (not going to post the links, as it’ll be regarded as a ‘personal attack’).

P.S. Several features (sidebar, tabs,...) don’t work on ThemeForest without javascript. :)

well, from what I see this site fully is based of javascript and the reviewers should understand that. Unless they have another solution for it to run without javascript. Then It should have been accepted. This is one cool template.

Blabus, try to recreate an HTML version only. For example, if Javascript is enabled, it will just slide to the correct section when a navigation button is pressed but if Javascript is disabled, load the button link in a new page. Or just make an anchor, and make it just click from one spot to another.

There are levels of “breaking” that are acceptable – if the content is still visible and accessible then it will probably get approved.

So If I essentially just changed the overflow of the slider container from ‘hidden’ to ‘visible’, that would be acceptable? As that’s exactly what some of the templates on here work like.

Just a side note, but I really hope you aren’t including the hoverscroll JavaScript in there. :)

I don’t think you can re-sell the hoverscroll script in your template? Unless you purchased a “web services” license for it?

Will the contact form work / submit via ajax / display thank you message?
