hi, did you run it through theme check, debogger and also enable wp_debug. cheers.
Yup, been doing all those things and then some. Got a reply from a reviewer though, the design was deemed to be TOO simple Will probably make some changes and submit it to the mobile section instead.
You need to make the menu work more intuitive, without search box being hidden, imagine user needs to click the features right away and not guess what and where is the damn search. Another thing I think you missed: footer, where is it?
Yeah I hear you on the menu/search, already on it Believe I’ve almost landed on a solution there.
As for the footer, it’s there. Widgets appear in the footer. By default though it’s empty due to the minimal nature of the theme. But I guess I should add something additional there also.
I think it’s a nice start. Typo is almost there, but spacing is not yet there.
Imagine you don’t have to make all the spacing the same from top to bottom on vertical and same from left to right on horizontal. Read about macro and micro spacing, it will help alot.
Another thing: the lines are not good enough unless really separate 2 different or contrasting blocks.Good luck.
Cheers for the feedback, though none of what you mentioned falls under “minimum technical quality requirements.” If the reviewer had an issue with the design, the email would’ve specifically mentioned aesthetic shortcomings, would it not?
I still suspect the reviewer missed the menu button and so thought a lot of features were missing. But there’s no way to contact the reviewer to find out if that was the case, and TF staffers don’t really seem to respond in this section of the forum.
I’m currently reworking the header so that the menu and search field would be always visible, but other than that I guess I just have to hold my breath
I like very nice theme , perhaps requirements includes some other sections or other features , seems very simple blog .
That’s the odd thing, it has a bunch of highly customizable shortcodes, a customized gallery system, customized sliders, portfolio pages, it supports all post formats, is widget ready, has several page templates, a totally unique comment form, contact form with validation, plus nifty details like auto-expanding textareas and text fields… There are a lot of themes with not even half these features that get accepted.
The “minimum technical quality requirements” bit suggests the code is crap, tough it’s not. It validates, CSS is clean, php and css files are nicely commented. Plus the PSD files are included and there’s very thorough documentation as well…. I’m at a loss.
Perhaps the reviewer didn’t understand that the icon next to the logo was the menu button and thought a lot of the features were missing…?
Hey all, hoping to get some feedback here.
Our latest theme has been rejected and what makes it super frustrating is there was no real reason given, just that it didn’t meet the “minimum technical quality requirements”. Where I expected there to be a more detailed reason for the rejection in the email, the reviewer had copy-pasted the theme’s description instead.
You can have a look at the theme’s demo site here. I don’t think it’s visually so disgusting that it would be rejected because of that, and the code is proper also. So I’m confused and optimistic that this rejection was somehow a mistake.
Would appreciate any tips anyone could give, or maybe a staffer can quickly look into this. Cheers.
Hey everyone. First post on the forums, so don’t shoot if this is taboo, but I’m wondering if anyone here is feeling generous with their Dribbble invites?

Thanks a ton!
