you can put all the code in front-page.php and keep index.php for blog posts.
according to hierarchy front-page.php will be read first before index.php. no need to create a template.

Awesome find! I’ve now rectified my theme to use front-page.php.

Thanks man!

Appreciate your thoughts. Might be the way to go.

Would be good to just get a better indication from Envato as this point is not very clear.

Thanks @WebDesignPlanet,

Though other themes I have purchased use this functionality, whereby they include the one page structure in the index.php.

Page templates would not apply in this situation as it’s a one page theme. Or am I missing something?

Hi everyone,

Received a third rejection from the review team. One of their points included this:

2) index.php should be reserved for standard blog "latest posts" view.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development#Index_.28index.php.29
http://codex.wordpress.org/images/1/18/Template_Hierarchy.png

From Codex:

Index.php:
- Display a list of posts in excerpt or full-length form. Choose one or the other as appropriate.
- Include wp_link_pages() to support navigation links within posts.

My theme is a one page WordPress theme. In turn, where would my codebase go if I am getting rejected for including it within the index.php file? I’m at a loss to understand this point…

Any ideas?

So after doing a bit more research I found this thread

http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/wordpress-adds-extra-paragraph-tag/34162?page=2

Seems to provide a link to a TF approved solution, which is found here

https://gist.github.com/bitfade/4555047

I’ll resubmit with this solution and we’ll go from there.

Hi guys,

I’m a little confused. I submitted my theme for review, though I am being advised I need to remove the function found on the below link.

http://envato.d.pr/eAvy/54ucG7ri

WordPress is adding markup which is not necessary, specifically the br and p tags.

Removing this function alters certain areas of the theme itself. What I am wondering, is how do we approach this scenario whilst still adhering to the submission requirements? Thoughts?

Thanks,

Leo

Hi everyone,

This may sounds like a silly question however the submission requirements state the following:

File naming and structure must follow WordPress best practices. For example, do not use category-header.php, custom-header.php etc.

I’ve been using underscores as my starter theme (created by the guys at Automattic) and this exact naming convention is used for that specific feature (i.e. custom header support).

Considering the above, what am I mean to change this too?

Thanks,

Leo

When you submit your theme to the Review Team, do you bundle all plugins within it? By this I mean both third party and your own custom ones?

OR…

Do you only include your own and provide references within your documentation that explain to the customer where to download the third party plugin(s) (e.g. Contact Form 7).

Hi Leo,

As mentioned in the WordPress Theme Submission Requirements, it’s encouraged that you use something like the TGM Plugin Activation class to prompt users to install both third-party and bundled plugins.

In this case, for plugins that are hosted on the WordPress.org plugin directory, there’s no need to include them in your theme, as TGMPA can simply install them direct from WordPress.org.

Does that make sense?

Hi Japh,

Sort of…

I will need to familiarize myself with the TGMPA in more detail. That being said, I was reading in the requirements that you can also include your custom plugins (that are outside of the WordPress.org directory) without the need for TGMPA, is this correct?

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Leo

Hi everyone,

Approaching the completion of my first WordPress theme and had a question in relation to submission.

When you submit your theme to the Review Team, do you bundle all plugins within it? By this I mean both third party and your own custom ones?

OR…

Do you only include your own and provide references within your documentation that explain to the customer where to download the third party plugin(s) (e.g. Contact Form 7).

Would appreciate your feedback.

Thanks,

Leo

i58.tinypic.com/ephc46.jpg Upload images for the current page/post but do not insert them into the post editor. Under media library tab “Uploaded to this page/post” images will be your grid gallery images

Yeah I didn’t insert them in the page. Here is my screenshot as to how I included the grid.
