Theme Rejected stating "submission is too far off the standards we require". Feedback Needed.



Hello Guys,

Submitted my first WordPress theme to sell at ThemeForest a few days back, received an email today saying:

“After completing our review, we’ve determined that ‘(theme name)’ isn’t at the quality standard needed to continue forward with the review process on ThemeForest. As the submission is too far off the standards we require, you’ll be unable to re-submit on this occasion.”

The theme was made to be simple, not complex; although it’s quite customizable.

No specific reasons were given as to why it’s not meeting the quality standards. The code is quite clean enough.

Need your feedback. Here’s the demo site:


You need to improve the design. Come up with unique ideas. Take a look at newly added themes on themeforest to have an idea of what kind of work gets accepted here. Best of luck.
