Hey there, i would start on the colors. To me it looks old and out of date. The menu font look terrible. I mean it has potential and a lot of content but i think you have to spend more time on some of the issues the reviewer pointed out.
I think if you change some of those you will have a good chance of getting it accepted.
Cheers and good luckLester
Thanks a lot for your feedback, it is definitely useful. The think is this theme is very flexible in term of design (I don’t know if you saw the other 5 skins) but it seems like I have chosen a bad one for the default look and feel, I wanted to do something different but I have failed big time. I guess I have to re-do the default skin as something a bit more corporate with nice colors but I was scare it would be rejected cause of the uniqueness.
For the fonts, I use the google fonts but strangely on Windows it does not look nice, do you have any idea? On my mac it looks fine…
Thanks a lot anyway, I will work on that asap and re-submit it. Hope this time will be good.
you can’t use the logos at the bottom as they are copyright – and I believe one of the pictures in your slider is an actor – you should replace those for sure.
I would show drop down menus also.
apart from that pretty much what is outlined in the reply you received.
Hope that helps.Jonathan
Thanks for the tips about the logos, I didn’t know, I’ll change that. Either than that I still can’t see what to change with what is said in the reply as I’ve been looking at it for too long, that’s why I need some external feedback.
Well, another disappointed thread here. I have submitted my theme 2 days ago and it is rejected:
Unfortunately your submission DIY Multi-Purpose Versatile WordPress Theme isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest and requires significant improvements and changes before it can be resubmitted and reconsidered.
Additionally, we have some extra feedback for you:
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.
2. There are a few inconsistent spacing issues throughout the design.
3. Overall 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 item may just swing the decision in your favor.
Here is the demo: http://themes.monkeethemes.com/demos/?theme=diy
Looking forward to your feedback please.
I am using timthumb because it can also resize images that are not from the media uploader but external websites.
Good script anyway! Thanks for sharing.
I believe responsive is not a issue itself but more the way it has been integrated. A good responsive approach shouldn’t be removing/hiding content that you could find on the desktop version for the sake of been mobile but should simply display the same content flawlessly for smaller screen and keeping the content easy to find.
I would happily stay on a mobile version on my phone rather that the desktop if it has been well thought.
I like it pretty much, very good attention to detail, well done! For the menu, I would have reduced the white gradient a little. Is it going to be a WP theme?
Looks like a pretty big slider.
Let’s say you want 1 pixel to jump every 200 000 with a max of 1 000 000 000, that means your slider has to be 5000 pixels width (5000×200 000), unless your slider move when you reach the end of your 800 pixels, it is not very user friendly. I would recommend to use a simple input tag, unfortunately.
It looks like the marketplace will be crowded (or already is) with a lot of themes that are no more being bought.
My idea would be to have rules over templates and say that a theme that hasn’t been bought more than 20 times or something over 3 months should be removed. That’s just a example.
If nothing is done to do a spring cleaning the marketplace will be over crowded… How do the buyers to search a theme anyway? Me, filter by sales or by ratings.
