I need the opinion of some experts about my theme that has been rejected.

wordpress

#1

This is the first time that i try ti submit a project. It has been rejected with this reason:

Unfortunately your submission WeParts, Wordpress Theme born to sell spare parts isn’t ready for ThemeForest and cannot be resubmitted as it did not meet our minimum requirements for quality and/or Envato Market policies. In order for submissions to be considered for sale they must be of high aesthetic and technical quality, unique to our library and cannot be in violation of Envato’s policies.

This is a short description of my theme:

WeParts is a Wordpress Theme created for selling spare parts.
It has wonderful search mode with the possibility to perform cross-searches and filters.
The page archive of vehicles and parts has a particular search engine that allows you to filter your search.
The Theme has the ability to create custom select which allow you to search for the vehicle or for parts.
Everything is customizable through the theme options panel and the builder to create pages with the drag and drop method.

This is my theme:

Please, could someone help me understand what to improve?

Thanks !

Hey,

I believe it’s rejected because of the design not for its functionality.

For example, the image quality of your banners are not good at all. On the sections which you have a background image, your text is not readable. Submenus are not looking fine to me. There are some padding/spacing issues also you should improve its typography.

I hope that helps. Anyway even if you fix these issues, I believe you don’t have a big chance to make it approve with its current design/layout unless you provide a unique feature to introduce it as a niche theme. I said that because there are tons of multipurpose themes with similar design but with higher quality in the market right now :blush:

Cheers,
Iman

Hi @WeMiura,
The slider images have low quality. Improve that.
Change “INCREDIBLE ADMIN FEATURES” - put something related to the other content of the site, this is a theme features which place is in the item description.
And improve the overall design of the theme. The theme is ok but not all design is good. Also change some things and before submission write here/make a new thread so we could review it before submission.

Thanks for your answers.
In effect i focused more on the functions (searching, filters, tabs compatibility) than on aesthetics.
Over pictures of the slider (I will change them ), where I can improve? where there are some padding / spacing issues? Typography because no good?
I’d like to show the capabilities that I introduced, as the filter in archive pages

or the compatibility tab in product page:

Hi WeMiura,

tbh, I have absolutely no idea of webdesign. However, I looked on your demo and the first thing catching my eye was the low image quality of the car-pics. That definitely should be changed.

I tried to use the page from the perspective of a spare parts buyer and I must say that I liked it and found it nice and clear.
That doesn’t really help to find out the problem, I know. :smiley:
Anyway - I know it from my music - sometimes the opinions and perceptions of inexperienced ‘consumers’ can be helpful.

Cross fingers that the problem will be found and resolved and your Theme will finally get approved. :four_leaf_clover:
