Not sure that would be accepted here. Several design points need attention including:

Home page-
Product boxes – vertical image alignment
Featured article – text padding
Featured/latest/specials – everything below this is so cramped in that it’s hard to focus on any one element.

Product pages
Item tags are right at the bottom below reviews?
The heart and arrows icons – no idea what they do as there’s no tooltip or browser status bar tip
The categories menu on the left – that auto expand on rollover is giving me a headache
It’s generally hard to focus on the important details as all titles, body text, links etc. are similar font size and weight.

The slider’s too fast. I can barely see the logo or strapline on some of the backgrounds The countdown timer needs polish The subscribe button looks like you don’t want people to push it. It’s also a couple of pixels higher than the text entry field to its left. The social icons are scary. The menu items at the bottom are too discrete – they’re almost invisible.

If you are treating this a money-making exercise then, with this design, it’s not going to happen. Take a look at some of the best selling themes on the marketplace; they offer everything your theme has and they offer it better. So why make the 3000th copy that’s going to make 20 sales if you’re lucky? Be creative – go make something different – surprise yourself.

Here’s some feedback on the design.

Firstly, get it onto a better server. It took 10 seconds to load.

Team section – the silhouettes are crappy and the font size for the names is way too big.

Fun facts – why is there twice as much white space above?

What we do – the title ‘Our Amazing Features’ is too close to the bullets below.

The ‘Awesome easy to use’ section. This is a call to action – your first real chance to convert visitors to customers and it’s almost unnoticeable.

Portfolio section – the filters are too low profile

Parallax section – again the silhouette and the font size.

Yay the site just crashed my browser.

Pricing tables – why is ‘buy it now’ so small? Don’t you want people to buy things?

Get connected – those icons are awful.

Get in touch Contact Us – Which one? You’re saying the same thing twice.

Contact parallax section – space between icon and text is different on each.

Shortcodes section -

H tags – you’ve succeeded in making it look like all the H tags have different left padding when they don’t.

Labels – either increase the line spacing or reduce the vertical padding on the labels themselves. Some are overlapping.

Lists – a little padding between list items wouldn’t go amiss.

Single blog post – the title is lost against the background. Whatever image crop method you’ve used for the slider is placing the center of the image off to the left.

Most elements on the site need work and, as a whole, it’s offering nothing different – it’s just a clone of a clone of a clone.

If it’s any consolation I had exactly the same experience. Zero response from three different designers. I gave up in the end and used a different site.

Interesting. Have you guys shared this feedback via the dedicated channel? http://enva.to/ReportSP I’m sure the Studio Support team would like to look into it :-)

Thanks.

Didn’t bother as I figured in any new venture like this there’s always going to be a couple of bad eggs. A little embarrassing when a client loved the illustrators’ styles and we had to go back to them after a while and tell them the designers hadn’t got back to us :S

Hopefully the ratings overhaul will include clamping down on fake good ratings, too – author has a theme up for 15 minutes and there are 5 sales with 5×5* ratings.

What Ruben means is forget wordpress.com.

Change the nameservers back to namecheap Go to wordpress.org and download a copy of wordpress. Set up a blank MySQL database with a user with admin rights on your hosting account. Upload the unzipped wordpress file to you web directory on your server. Visit your site and run through the install routine. Upload your theme and you’ll now be able to select it from the backend. Import all your posts and pages and ta-da, a crispy new website.

Maybe something like http://www.notableapp.com/ comes close? Or perhaps https://www.diigo.com/

You can contact Envato directly here: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Tickets/Submit and request a refund but you’ll have to show them that the code is buggy and the theme doesn’t work as advertised.

How they’ll check that when the theme has been taken down, I don’t know.
