How long before the exam for a soft theme rejected?


#1

Hello everyone :slight_smile:

My theme is soft rejected, I submitted to ThemeForest twice and answers the examiner were very fast.

I re-submitted my theme and I have no answers for two days, now it’s the weekend, so it will be four days, I have just to wait or there a problem?
I hope I do not have to wait 10 days as my first submission, in addition, if it is still soft rejected, I have to work on it.

Thank you very much, have a good weekend :slight_smile:

I have a message in my dashboard “Temporarily held for further review” is a good or bad news to you for a soft theme rejected?


#3

Share a link to the demo here.

Held for review can mean a lot of things so it is hard to pinpoint what in your case

Hi @charlie4282, here the demo: http://khothemes.com/preview/kong/
This is a personal blog theme.


#5

This is my third submission, the first two, the examiner told me to further improve the theme, logically, this means that it will perhaps be accepted.
Fingers crossed :slight_smile:


#6

Good Luck Khothemes :smiley:


#7

Thank you very much :slight_smile:


#8

All in all, it was to bad news, my theme was soft rejected now, it’s hard rejected.


#9

Oh that’s sad buddy, In order to succeed you must fail, so that you know what not to do the next time.


#10

Yes, I’ll try to improve it.


#11

it is definitely NOT bad - I’m surprised it was hard rejected unless it was deemed to be too basic/similar to others for sale.

There’s several little things I owuld change eg.

  • The “follow” images at the bottom are too tall and as a result the likes/comments are lost

  • Check your sticky header http://khothemes.com/preview/kong/cursus-ipsum-ante-quis-turpis-nulla-facilisi/ it seems to behave a little strange when the hero section moves out of view, like it snaps down and back up (or is that intentional?)

  • Titles on contact/about don’t look as good as other pages (but good that they differ from post titles)

Hello, thank you so much, I took note of everything you have told me :slight_smile:
For the header, I’ll change it because the reviewers do not like.
I was also surprised to the hard reject, I do not understand.
Thanks again :slight_smile:
