I uploaded my first HTML template but it was rejected and I received the message below. Since I’m new to Themeforest I don’t now exactly what’s wrong with the template, is it a matter of design or something I must correct in the code?
If I fix whatever is wrong can I submit it again? Or this template will never be approved?
You can view the template here http://demo.olivethemes.com/infolio-html/
Any help would be very appreciated.

1. First of all it’s not responsive 2. Second of all the header of your html file is way to plain! Make sure you add metas to it atleast and make sure it works in all browsers 3. Spice up the typography: it’s really dull right now 4. Check your paddings and spacing (for example between the title and main text of the portfolio items) 5. This has a pretty generic layout that has been done before so add something that makes your theme stand out (special effects etc)
not bad but it is not really at required level. Work on typography and add more visual elements like icons, it looks way too plain.
I like the header , work on the body content.
the body needs some design work
Great start, add more text, improve your typography and use more attractive photos
Nice design. Needs better images as has been said and adjust your vertical spacing on your typography. I would try to improve your features, bland at the moment.
Hello, of course you may re-submit the current template after you improve it significantly. The phrase “isn’t ready for ThemeForest and cannot be resubmitted” does not mean you cannot resubmit it ever, it means you cannot resubmit it without improvements.
The main issue is design, definitely. I did not look into your code but it is better to check it too, and if you find some faults improve it as well. But more important issue is design. You have already got a number of valuable advices what and how to improve, so wish you good luck in further work!
