I’m having difficulty getting this approved. Feedback on what could be improved to get this theme approved would be very much appreciated!

I believe it will not help you out, but I think your theme is great! I love it that you included bbpress in your theme, and basically, I went through theme and could no find a place for improvement, it overall looks very nice.

Thank you for the feedback!

I think I found one place for improvement. I’m starting to dislike my header text with the orange/green/blue line at the top. I’ll be redoing that which should add a slight improvement.

Maybe it’s not a theme looks? Do you have admin panel with some basic options included?

Yes, it has all the bells and whistles.

I guess I should have mentioned what the reviewer said:

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.

However, that rejection notice was sent prior to my last submission which fixed most of those issues or so I thought.

Maybe you should try more powerful jQuery slider that would support captions etc?

I think that’s definitely a good suggestion to add a little more polish. Thank you!

I like it but I think it lacks contrast? and can you experiment with its color? Hope this help.

Thank you for the feedback! Do you mind expanding on your answer as to which colors you don’t like? I do agree that the front page images lack a little contrast but it looked weird when I changed it.

I submitted some more changes and the reviewer gave me the “nothing was changed” message which is completely untrue. File size alone should have indicated that.

Anyway, I’m completely stuck and would appreciate it if someone could give some good constructive criticism.
