Here the last feedback from reviewer.
Soft Rejected
Unfortunately, your submission is too similar to existing item(s) in our marketplace. Your upload must be a unique concept not based on any existing marketplace item. The content area is pretty generic and plain, and it will need more imaginations. There are a few inconsistent spacing/padding as well as alignment issues throughout the design. I’d like you to go over it with a fine toothed comb and weed out these basic design issues. Minimal templates can be clean and simple when you manage to handle the white space and details to provide a simple but yet unique template. But if you can’t, it will look like an incomplete template – blank template. In this case, the submitted template is more like a ‘framework’ than a full fledged design. If you’re going with minimalism, you need to make sure all the little details check out.

Please, tell me what can I do? Do you see any bags/white spaces/alignment problems?

Here is demo http://divengine.net/themes/divblog


All pages has broken (uncentered) layout when my browser is less than 50% zoom (Firefox and Chrome), but this page is especially demonstrative: http://divengine.net/themes/divblog/home-page-v4 as masonry items are out of site container.
Also, look at screenshot.

I would “erase” these lines (and where sidebar connects with footer).
Also there are problems with footer - it’s too disordered, + your advertising image looks like linoleum.

  • “open up opportunities” header ads looks unclear and doesn’t matches with edge of site container.
    Plus overall I would recommend replace typography with something unstandard because now it looks like any of TF templates from 2012.

OK. Thanks. Any other ideas?

http://divengine.net/themes/divblog/category/interesting/ - on categories too little space between images and titles;
http://divengine.net/themes/divblog/blog/blog-featured-post/ - the same + overall bad padding on post captions (especially on full width posts)

You still got bug in grid/masonry layout:

I do not check but if You use isotope, wait until all images are loaded and then relayout grid.
