Hey you guys and gals :)

I’m new to ThemeForest and seriously want to become a strong part of this marketplace. I think it offers a great opportunity to get a name in the business and spread one’s knowledge and style. Designing is not only my profession, it is my biggest hobby and my main goal is to satisfy my customers. I don’t just want to be a one or none hit wonder on here, I want many many people to benefit from what I do.

So before I jump in at the deep end I hopped through the forums and read a lot about getting rejected – which alarmed me. That’s why I chose to bug you guys with the preview of my theme before I submit it and leave it to the wolves :P

Due to that fact I would really be happy to get some input according to the WordPress Theme i made the last weeks.

Will it be approved? What do/n’t you like? And so on,.. you know what I want :)

A live demo can be seen on http://gc01.glossycat.com.

Thank you so much in advance!

Yours, GlossyCat

I wont go into to much detail, but I’ll say that it doesn’t look right in the Safari Browser, there are some coding issues. Also I don’t like the color choice.

Warning: Expected color but found ’#’. Error in parsing value for ‘background’. Declaration dropped. Source File: http://gc01.glossycat.com/wp-content/themes/ThisChurch/css/superfish.css Line: 91

and more… use the webdeveloper tool for firefox

header { padding:0 500px; } – remove that because the website has a horizontal scroll…..

header => header wrapper with all of the properties and in there insert a header for centering the element…. that why your big image wouldn’t show up :P

logo.. remove the flower and change the logo color and font

i don’t know you have a lot of work for it to get approved

Thank you much for your reply. I chose the color because it’s meant to be a religious theme, and gold is the most neutral and positive colour in all religions. I thought if I took a blueish or some other glossy color it won’t be associated with any kind of church anymore and won’t be accepted either. But I try other colors.

I made this in Safari and for me it does look the way it should be – I cannot work on “it doesn’t look right”, it would be nice if you gave me some examples.

@duotive thank you for the reply, I removed that.

That is why I asked in the forums, ‘cause if the reviewer said “it got rejected – take it or leave it” I won’t know either what exactly is wrong. So I hoped for more specific reasons than “it looks bad”.

Thank you, GlossyCat

I’ll give you a little more indepth review now that I have a little more time on my hands :)

* The background colors as I said didn’t quite go together, maybe perhaps if you flipped the gradient so it went from dark to light (top to bottom)
* The Text color for the Nav and logo seam a little to dark and kind of blend to well and dont complement each other enough, I think it should pop more basically.
* IT seams like there is a lot of white space all over in general, maybe try adding more content or more effects on some of the items? Not to sure on this.
* Weighing down some of the headings, I notice that the service times isn’t bold maybe it should be seeing that being a church template seams to be pretty important element in the template :)
* More color towards the bottom would be great too, the top has brown, but as I scroll down the page I kind of seam just white and gray colors maybe emphasize some of the key points you want drawn to the users eye?
I do like the nav drop down I think it looks good but something up there just looks odd, Maybe the logo shouldn’t be with that top bar It just looks small, and should stand out more to the viewer.

Good luck I’m sure this would have potential to the right niche and people looking for a church template, the template is good as it is now but anything could be perfected or improved to someone right?
