Themeforest Review:-

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.

With respect, this is way off the standards.

  • General design basics like typography and hierarchy all need attention

  • There’s no premium features or functionality to it that couldn’t be achieved with a free theme

  • Needs considerably more pages as well as alternative layouts for things like blogs, services, post types etc.

  • it’s always suspicious when there are elements that are in no way relevant to the theme topic such as testimonials from CEOs and achievement counters - this just feels like these are forced features from some other theme or base.

I’ve added tons of custom widgets and two header layouts, can’t we consider this as a premium feature or functionality?

@GoyalThemes look far be it for me to criticise, but @charlie4282 is perfectly correct in what they have said. Myself personally it does lack wow, and the footer is hit and miss. On your homepage where it says:

Our Services, well these links go nowhere, so that just seems weird. FAQ page looks lame, and overall it all seems a little blocky. Please don’t bash me :wink:

Two header layouts are nothing special especially not with Elementor being used.

Custom widgets would be premium if they offer distinct functionality - unless I am missing something I don’t see anything unique or special there?

Either way, your would need to modernize the design and add significantly more pages, elements etc.
