validation issues

Far too many colours that do not work together

Typography needs a ton of work especially the headings

Footer is void and empty

nav needs attention

all the pages just look the same with a different colour

the metro post thing is quite cool but again the bright mass of colour and the weak typography really don’t do it justice

Your header and post title fonts really do not work – the other link you provided are not great but they fit somehow.

If the colours can be changed form the admin then I would strongly advise sorting them out to be cleaner in the demo as right now it is very OTT

I checked the new link and sorry but it is still nowhere near

Yes and I changed colors but I don’t know is it good now or not?
ok I will change fonts.

Now I added a full-width version and here is the link : http://st-web.xzn.ir/metro8/

Listen, whatever people tell you here, you have to scrap this project, you know that. Because you can’t fix this design with a few simple tricks. I’ve been in web development since the early 2000s and even back than this would look bad. Now, if you really want to persue being an author on ThemeForest, you really have to get better with design.

My suggestion is, go to the dribbble, behance, web galleries (...) and get to know items. See what’s making them look great and try to mimic that. Find out the following: - how to use colors - how to use fonts, line-height, text-color (...) properly - web layouts, how responsive sites work, which are the best techiques - how little details impact the design

Now, after you’ve done that. Subscribe to SmashingMagazine, A List Apart and other web development blogs because you won’t get far without them. Read books about web development, find a mentor. This is a career, not a make-money-quick scheme.

But first thing is first, scrap this…

Thanks for your advise but don’t say that. I can’t scrap this.I worked hard on it and when I compare some themes of themeforest with this I see mine can be accepted.(maybe with some changes and improves)
I don’t have much time now and I just need to submit this.I don’t need this theme’s money. I have lots of work to do in 3,4 months and if I can submit this theme I don’t start a new theme until July.
this theme has so many customizable options and user can change almost everything.
Please give me some advise to submit this and I promise you better designs on my next themes. :)

Unfortunately you need the good design in this file. As Markic rightfully said there is no shortcut to releasing files here.

The best advice anyone can give you is start a fresh. There is more work involve din fixing your file than beginning over.

For what it’s worth – even if you sorted the design out somehow, the code still has issues that would cause it to be rejected.

Noone is trying to be harsh and feel free to submit it if you want but all we are trying to do is to help you not waste your time

You’re wasting your time, this theme just needs far too much work, as do you as a designer.

You need to spend at LEAST 12 months learning before attempting to resubmit.

You really need to start listening to people as you can see Charlie has bought between 100 and 499 items, I know for a fact that’s closer to the 499 so he knows what he’s talking about, there are also people who have a ton of sales trying to help you. But seeing as you don’t seem to want to listen I’ll try and drill it home



You need to scrap it and listen up to opinions – it’s got a long way to go
