This isn’t bad, not bad at all.
I think it maybe just needs some extra attention to detail?
The main thing I can point out, the text is not evenly spaced throughout the page. If you fix the vertical rhythm I think it will look a lot more.
I would also change the font of the logo, to be the same one you are using for headings and titles.
Did the reviewer give you any details? Can you resubmit if you do a revision?
Hope this helps!
Actually 4riS was being polite. I personally would scrap the whole thing and start from scratch. There are just to many things that don’t work. Typography choice and usage, colors, spacing, etc.
I am also working on my first theme and being a coder primarily there is just so much stuff I have to learn before even trying to get a theme built and submitted.
One thing I have learned right at the beginning is that web design is less about aesthetics and more about usability. UI & UX should define the aesthetics and not the other way around.
Here are some topics I am trying to familiarize myself with, and I think you should to:
- Font stacks
- Typography scale & rhythm
- Usage of colors
Hope that helps!
It would help if you posted a link to a full size image.
But at a glance this looks nice but I guess the spacing could be improved. Especially the “Sign up to our newsletter…” section is very squeezed in. Try adding some padding above an below.
Generally watch your spacings and alignments and make them consistent all over the pages/site.
Themico saidDamn, I must be really bad developer if it takes me 2 months to finish theme
What is the problem with his Enoupps template? It if fully ready HTML template. WP dev job:
1) create wp templates using HTML template (1 day);
2) create shortcodes and generator (HTML elements ready, get any ready generator code and let’s go (0.5 day)
3) create options panel with ready solution like Options Panel Framework (1 day)
4) the hardest thing – custom widgets and widget areas, their flexibility (2 days)
5) other small things and features, testing, demo version, docs (4 days)Totally about 8-10 days of honest work for a good (not great) developer. Do you think designing, coding HTML template get less time, efforts and professionalism?
Do you use a reusable framework for your themes or are you developing every theme from scratch?
It doesn’t make sense to dissect who is going to do what. It’s a business and in the end both partners will have to work hard to achieve a common goal. 50:50 is a fair partnership.
Only a fraction of required tasks were mentioned here, marketing for example, is a very important ongoing task to, and it falls more under the “creative” partner’s domain, if we are dividing work…
In the end it’s a matter of organization so that both partners do more or less “equal amount” of work.
We are in the process of creating our first theme to submit to TF and we want to reach out to the TF community for ideas/requests.
Can you think of a dream theme you would like to see here?
Does TF need more all-purpose themes, packed with features or more visually-exceptional, category-specific themes? Themes in which categories?
Help us by listing your top 3 features of a WP theme.
We would appreciate any feedback on this subject and we will thank the community with an awesome theme!
I would like to know if there is any problem an item having the same name as an username here on TF?
The name I have chosen just makes sense, and when I checked I noticed that someone has the same name as an username.
It’s not a name like “Joe”, “John” or “Susy”, but an noun like “Shoelace”.
Basically can I name a theme “Shoelace Theme” if there is an user with the username “Shoelace”?
