Soft rejection on wordpress, little help

Hello all,
Can we have your help on our theme?
We got soft rejection, we made changes as padding in rows, and resubmit but like first time, we got the same response.

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 has an interesting starting concept, but it 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.

While I’d be able to provide feedback as to how to get this approved, I can only do after it has crossed a certain threshold, quality wise. I’m sorry to say this isn’t there yet.

What do you think about it? What do you think we need to change?

Thank you in advance.

If I search the category, I’m sure I could find nearly the same theme. There’s actually nothing wrong with the theme ( few spacing issues but can be ignored ) The design/feature is quite classic.

You need to either polish the design in another aspect to make it look like more unique or add better features. If you have to choose, change the design - my opinion

If you submit the item like 2 years ago, you’d get an approval without any problem.


Thank you,
Can you tell me your ideea? Example for something/part that you think is better.
What do you think is better like default?

  • with other images
  • other price box
  • other blue background

Now, what i have in my mind is to change some hover effects, to add something better, better shaddows,


I’m quite sure it won’t help.

I know I mentioned earlier about “polishing” the design but consider it as “improving”

Thanks for your opinion.
Do you know jow many times can reject as soft in this moment and how many days can stay like this before resubmit again?

You cannot submit the same one - they may hard-reject the item.

I made small redesign on your header with inspection :smiley:

Hi, Thanks,
Yes, is because size of image is 1600px. I will fix it with 100% .

From what i understand from ticket support , Header , portfolio are old design, is crazy because if you check, “all” themes have this type of design of header, portfolio, etc

Awesome you’ve the ideas, hope you can make it now. Cheers!

Basically, the fundamental of the designs look generic and dated. The styling, combination of typography, colours and element placements aren’t working well together.

Thank you

Though it is generic design but I don’t think it is dated. May be they wants high standard. It is difficult to approve one page WP theme with less functionality. Good Luck :slight_smile:

Yes, i don’t think is outdated …but …this is it.


Do you have any advice?

I thought you should increase height of header section and fit to width 100% for large screens. Wish you good luck :slightly_smiling_face:
