I need your help. I am new to Themeforest, and is not entirely sure about the rules, and this is not covered specifically by the guidelines.

I have created click-through landing page template called FORK, you can see the preview here
http://hello.conversionlab.no/fork I also created a different version for lead generation, but I want to submit it as a new entry named FORK LEAD GEN. So branded almost the same, but 2 different pages:
http://hello.conversionlab.no/fork-lead

Will Envato allow for this to be submitted as 2 different templates?

The remake of the page into a lead gen page required quite some work, and I would like to capitalize on that rather than just bundle with the first entry.

Any input is highly appreciated :-)

Great question, I appreciate you asking before submitting. In this case, you will need to submit this bundled with the other Fork version. From our experience, this will actually work in your favor as it will encourage buyers to purchase your item due to the increased value offered. This will also avoid confusion for the customer and less work for you when you update/fix items moving forward.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi everyone! Just a quick heads up that the review team is working their way through the queue as we speak and should be getting to your items soon. Remember, winning is based on submission date of approved items. Keep a close eye on your approval response as a soft rejected item will need to be fixed and resubmitted before contest end.

Thanks and good luck :)

I’m am already making the theme, just a quick question, what should we put in the compatible browsers? :) and about the compatibility with bootstrap? :/ I’m sorry i’m very new in web design, don’t know much about these things…

No problem. Some of those really don’t apply. I would just add IE 7,8,9,10,11 Firefox and Chrome. I would select N/A for bootstrap. Good luck with your entry!
