At the moment I’m designing a new WordPress Theme.
However I’m in a dilema. Will ThemeForest reject it if I use a 1140px width?
I’ve been using 960px since I started working more serious on the design field, however I feel that this width is no longer the best option. 1140px so far is perfect, not only it allows for more content to be displayed horizontally, but also improves the readability of all the website.
So, basically if I create a fixed theme with 1140px, will TF reject it? The theme in question would require some drastic changes, which would afect the overall usability, if I make it responsive, which would be a good solution, however I don’t want to go this way.
Am I obligated to still use a 960px width?
Thanks, Eduardo Santos – Web Designer @ ThemesFever
1140px: I think it’s a time for 960px to retire
TF acceptance: I think it will be approved, but let’s hear an official answer, I am interested also
Nice to see that this is a wise choice. I’m amazed of the “new possibilities” such width adds to the design process.
Sorry for the double post.
Any official feedback on this one? Thanks.

No, there is no real hard limit to any aspect of a theme. As long as it is functional and looks good, it should be good to go.
Yup, you are allowed to do that. But, you need to mention that in the item description.
Thank you very much both of you.

“Optimize for 1024×768, which is currently the most widely used screen size.”
