I think you will need to re-upload it with a message to a reviewer as they do not keep data. Also need to contact with support, as it was previously approved and deleting and resubmitting item is not allowed.

@tansh – Thank you for your help, seems that submitting a support ticket and not uploading it was the way to go. I appreciate your time! And cool 80×80 icon by the way : )

The item has been undeleted and its current state is soft disabled, please make the necessary adjustments, update and resubmit.

@Ivor – Thank you so much! You and ThemeForest support RÜLE ! ! ! It’s back on the market again.

On a side note, why doesn’t ThemeForest (Envato) move the Delete Permanently option to it’s own tab or just put it somewhere less trip-overable? I have an ulcer now LOL!

I think so. I have requested staff reply here so wait for them :)

I beat you to it : ) Already deleted from the upload queue…

It just didn’t “feel” right to re-upload it anyway. I’m sure they have a magic “Restore” but for geniuses like me.

Contact Support.
Thank you! ...So does that mean I should take it out of the queue since I re-uploaded it?

I just answered my own question. Deleting from the queue now, I’ll let Support handle it. Thanks! ...I’m going to sleep now, like I should have done a few hours ago.

Seems a little odd that it is so easy to accidentally delete an item permanently when you are merely trying to update the preview images. Is there a way to restore it quickly without having to re-upload everything?

Also, when I look at the code from other WordPress themes from ThemeForest, there seems to be little or no reference to the filtering functions as seen on the codex Data Validation page (in the link above). And when the filtering functions do show up, they seem to be used very minimally and inconsistently.

Can someone please elaborate on WP validation, sanitizing, filtering, and escaping? Which files do they need to go in, obviously functions.php will get some code, but what about output? Which pages and in what way does output need to be filtered? What is acceptable and what is not acceptable?

Should I just keep guessing and keep resubmitting and keep getting rejected until I guess what the reviewer is looking for?

For starters, some of the files I’m using are… functions.php index.php page.php (and templates) single.php archive.php category.php ......and everything is working great.

Here are some various, random output examples I’m using… (What needs to be filtered and in what way? What doesn’t need to be filtered? I can find no explanation for this)...

wp_title(); the_post_thumbnail(); the_excerpt(); the_content(); comments_template(); comment_form(); wp_link_pages(); the_tags();

I have Googled this dozens and dozens of times, and scanned YouTube for answers many times, for weeks and weeks. The only answers I find are very vague and incomplete. It can’t be that hard.

Here’s the message I get from the reviewer…

“The WordPress theme should make use of the following inbuilt functions to validate or santize content on input or escape any questionable content for put.” ...(Seriously, it says “put”) http://codex.wordpress.org/Data_Validation  

 

This code below is currently in my functions.php file (has not been submitted yet)... I like what it does, but I don’t even know if this is acceptable on ThemeForest…

add_filter('comment_text', 'wp_filter_nohtml_kses'); add_filter('comment_text_rss', 'wp_filter_nohtml_kses'); add_filter('comment_excerpt', 'wp_filter_nohtml_kses');  

This code below doesn’t tell me anything (although I greatly appreciate the suggestion)...

$postmeta = sanitize_text_field( $_POST['fieldname'] ); // comments field input??? update_post_meta( $post->ID, 'fieldkey', 'fieldname' );  

...Am I supposed to put that in the functions.php file for the default input fields for comments? When is it used?

I’m sure it’s VERY simple to do. I’m just tired of getting rejected repeatedly for the same thing.

What I need to know is what ThemeForest accepts, and what they don’t accept, in regard to validation, sanitizing, filtering, and escaping. Which input fields need to be filtered? How? Which output needs to be filtered, and which output does not need to be filtered? How? Please!

Thanks in advance!!! : )

I just answered my own question. Custom template pages are the way to go. Thank you, me!
