    Hi everyone, I asked for feedback on my WordPress theme (flatso – back in November and the recommendations I received here were amazing (thanks again for all the input!)

    I’ve since worked on the theme to tighten it up based on the advice given and have since submitted it to Themeforest for inclusion on their marketplace. On submission the theme was however rejected due to “design issues.”

    As the feedback provided is not super descriptive I was wondering if anyone could provide some more detailed feedback/give their general opinion on the theme and what they think is necessary to make it more professional looking/desirable. Whats good, whats bad etc. All constructive feedback (no matter how harsh) would be greatly appreciated!

    Flatso can be found here

    Many thanks in advance for this.



    First off, that looks really good, but you came here for critique not flattery.

    The thing that really grabbed me as being a little odd was the size of the headings. Large headings tend to make people skim rather than focus. I know a lot of websites use large headings, but I think there needs to be a shift away from it.

    I recommend reading these two chapters from Butterick’s Practical Typography

    Keep up the good work.


    It looks good to me. I agree with Josh the mobile menu doesn’t fit the theme though. Maybe add some color to it will help out.
