Need Suggestion On Hard Reject

Hello Everyone!

We need your valuable suggestions on our Hard rejected WordPress theme.

We have launched several WordPress themes on ThemeForest Marketplace and here is our Portfolio -

Today, we have submitted a new WordPress theme and we have followed their updated guidelines. But we have received the below reply from the reviewing team

Thank you for your submission. We have completed our review of “Vool - Smartly Made Gutenberg WordPress Magazine Theme” and unfortunately we found it isn’t at the quality standard required to move forward, and you won’t be able to re-submit this item again.

Here is the comment from your Envato Quality team reviewer:

Unfortunately ‘WordPress’ has higher standards in terms of aesthetics. An approved design in other categories does not guarantee an approval under ThemeForest’s WordPress category. Your design needs significant improvements in terms of aesthetics and attention to details.

As higher quality items become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.

As it stands your item quality is just too low in comparison with other items in similar categories.


We are only considering items that really stand-out and have been carefully crafted.

So, What might be the reason for hard rejection?

Here is the theme demo -

Are they pointing only at the Design or coding structure as well?

Helpful suggestions are much appreciated!
