This part of code with error is coming due to something sending an array to be checked by the function in the line 703, that is about UTF8 invalid chars if I remember well.
Did you already identified the file causing it? Disable the main templates (remove the code to test only) one by one, like remove PHP parts of header.php and see if it changes, try the following results until the error go away. Try deactivate all the third-party plugins as well.
When you identify the file, send the source of the file with problem, this way we can check
Here’s my item to this contest: http://themeforest.net/item/kocka-flexible-and-powerful-wordpress-theme/9151838
There are clients to everyone, surely you’ll see clients that enjoy a more “pure” solution like our friend @subsolar told us.
But as you can see in the Top Seller list, a lot of users appreciate these custom elements and fancy sliders, so it depends of what you think is correct for you.
Redux is a really great and powerful panel, really, it’s complete with a lot of types of fields and well coded and easy to extend with your own fields, no problems working with it.
Visual Composer is the most popular builder, so a lot of buyers are already used to it (a lot of best sellers also use it) – it’s really easy to extend and updated often.
I don’t see problems using these in combination, both are really great and powerful.
If you place your code there, anyone will be able to copy, modify and use your code anywhere, if that’s what you’re looking for (I think not), put it in a public repo.
If you want it private, pay a Private plan in GitHub or BitBucket (https://bitbucket.org/) that’s free even with private repos.
I’m seeing this as well, really not fair for new items being approved, I hope they fix it as soon as possible.
During the weekend reviews are slower or don’t even happen and usually it’ll take 3-4 days or more to be reviewed with a new item.
The item complexity doesn’t matter at all because you’ll need to wait in the review queue even with a large or light theme.
Relax, rest a bit or even work in a new item while you’re waiting
TGM actually adds a if check to the screen_icon(), it’ll only be called if the WP version being used is < 3.8, when this function wasn’t deprecated.
So, I think there’s no problem about that.
Thank you for the patience, I hope it helps!
Great hear that I can be useful, I’ll start writing an article.
