You have many validation errors there that you can easily fix..

Line 501, Column 26: Element style not allowed as child of element div in this context
Line 679, Column 7: Element style not allowed as child of element div in this context
(STYLE tags inside a DIV tag is invalid HTML)

Line 653, Column 79: Stray end tag a.
Line 654, Column 77: Stray end tag a.
(You are closing non existing A elements. Here’s an example: <li><i class=”uk-icon-arrow-right”></i><span>Always 5 Star Friendly Support</a></span></li> )

Line 664, Column 160: Bad value 60 for attribute rel on element input: The string 60 is not an absolute URL
Line 669, Column 160: Bad value 75 for attribute rel on element input: The string 75 is not an absolute URL
Line 674, Column 161: Bad value 100 for attribute rel on element input: The string 100 is not an absolute URL
(REL attributes are not supposed to be used on input elements. They are used to specify the relationship between your page and a page that is being linked, therefore, it should be used on A elements, that is, links)

And there are other errors like IMG tags without alt attributes, etc…

Since I’m a programmer that’s all the feedback I can give to you. But clearly there are design issues that you need to address. Read carefully what the reviewer said and try to improve your design.

Cheers!

Technically the plugin won’t be a part of your theme, right? Your theme will support it, rather, and the users will install the free plugin.

Besides, my guess is that plugin developers want their plugins to be supported by as many themes as possible. I would.

Good luck with your first theme! :)

I find the calc() method very usefull, but I don’t think it’s time to use it right now, since it has partial support or no support at all for most of the browsers. http://caniuse.com/calc
Did you look at the graphic of the link you shared? It’s actually supported on most browsers, not the other way around…

Yes. Android 4.2-4.3, Safari 5, Opera 12(and mobile), IE9 ( I don’t know how it works, since it’s partial support), still are a problem.

First of all, I would not use it because of Android, and second Safari.

IE8: I don’t care, it’s a very old browser which was designed for Win XP that is not supported by its developers anymore.
IE9’s partial support is explained there:
Partial support in IE9 refers to the browser crashing when used as a background-position value

Opera mini doesn’t support anything xD I don’t use it but my guess is that 90% of websites look awful on opera mini, have a look: http://caniuse.com/#compare=chrome+36,op_mini+5.0-7.0

And as dSKY mentioned, WordPress’ oficial theme Twenty Fourteen is using it, so, in response to the original question, I think it is quite reasonable to use it..

I can’t see how this is a fix. You are just removing it, not fixing it.

I don’t see the good news here.

To be honest when I’m looking at some rejection, like yours, I’m starting to wonder if this whole shop is not some one big fake, where earn only authors affiliated with the site … I wonder this because “reviewers” in 95% of cases, did not even write a single sentence about the reasons for the rejection … For me this site look good, I don’t know what category You choose, but it looks good.

I assure you that’s not the case.

Reviewers are not there to teach you how to design, it would be impossible to give detailed feedback on all the rejected items, you would need hundreds of reviewers to do that.

They won’t specify all the things that you got wrong, unless there are just a few things to fix, in which case they will tell you what you need to change. Just keep on improving your design and you’ll eventually get approved :)

IE8 support is not mandatory anymore! Your theme won’t be rejected for that reason.

Cheers!

Still, please some one, comment on my guestion, can I use dynamic colors the way I described above?

Sure you can do that.


What i have read around the problems with “eval” function could be the main hard reject reason.

The main reason why they rejected your theme is its design, not the code, I’m 100% confident about that. I don’t think they even reviewed your code at all… So keep on working on improving your design skills!

Good luck!
