I would like to ask you for help. I just submitted my second OpenCart theme, but sadly, it got rejected. At this point, i’m a bit lost on what to do and where to start with to improve this theme. For me it look fine, but seems that not everybody think so.
I’d really appreciate it if you can take a look and give some advice.
Here is the demo: http://elegium.themetorium.goodluckwith.us
Here is the reviewer message:
We’re sorry, your item Elegium – OpenCart Premium Theme has not been approved for sale on ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:
1. Your file has some well done design concepts, however it does not meet the current and very stringent quality guidelines and we can not accept your file at this time. You will need to make some additional improvements in overall aesthetics and aspects such as typography, graphics and spacing.
2. There are a few inconsistent spacing issues throughout the design.
3. Overall template’s typography needs additional refinements and improvements before it will be ready for sale.
4. Even with the current design, a significant increase in the polish of the various aspects of the template may just swing the decision in your favor.
In my opinion this shop is really good but… this theme look like many other themes in OC Category. In my opinion this is point of reject. Look at Your theme and other themes this is nothing special new.
Thanks for your reply. I understand that uniqueness is the key but I do not understand what is horribly wrong with spacing and typography? I do not see any such issues. Well, at least not by my eyes. Can someone please explain this to me?
Also, you may want to do something with loading, coz while website is loading I can see how it’s being assembled and how pictures render on my browser – some quick jquery could do the trick and leave better impression for tf team.
Thanks for your reply. It’s weird. Works fine on my browsers. (Firefox, Chrome, IE)
It works well, once images are cached in your browsers, but if you are new visitor it doesn’t. Try clearing cache and reloading the page – you will see what I mean
