Roman (Or Nico? Or Sara?) I know your items are always of the best quality – but hard rejection happens to everyone! It’s not the end of the world and don’t take it personally, you’re not beginners in this field and I’m sure you are very close to being approved! Did you tell the reviewer (in the item comments) that the WP theme is based on an already approved item with some decent sales under its belt? The “changes and improvements” requested refer to the design or the code?
My latest item was hard rejected at first. The design was good and of course I got pissed off (that’s the designer’s ego I’m sure you are also very familiar with :D) But then, on a closer look, I realized that although the design idea was good, I made stupid beginner mistakes – like a text that was meant to be vertically aligned to a div’s center and it wasn’t, it was 5 pixels too low, or things like size inconsistencies between the same heading in 2 different sections. Maybe it’s the same case here?
Please don’t use offensive terms, as a member of this community I feel targeted by your language and it pisses me off By the way, the design sucks and the template has bugs.

Aaaah, that was it, thanks so much!
Hey guys (and gals),
My experience is the same, my theme was rejected because of data validation issues (among other things). Before I escape everything there is to escape I have a question: what if I want my user to be able to use some basic HTML such as
<strong />or the h1, h2, h3? How can I escape some things but leave others alone? Also how should I escape text from wysiwyg forms?
girlscancode saidOk let me know when you’ve resubmitted. Maybe get it looked at before close … but no promises!
ShaneFreer saidOf course, I’m uploading my own changes right now (just some pesky data validation stuff), but I think we depend more on how busy the review team is today, right?
To all those who have had rejections … Any chance you can fix and re-submit in the next 4 hours?
Done! Thanks so much for staying up late for us! Your effort is much much appreciated!

What to Do After Your Items Are ApprovedOnce your items have been approved, do the following as soon as you can:
It’s as simple as that! Good luck!
- Post your approved entries in this thread.
I thought so… but nobody is willing to bet $400 for a..”thought” Well, good luck to the approved contestants then!
Well, my item is also soft-rejected (or just “Hard-accepted”, depending on what part of the glass you choose to view in life :)), but it does say “Created: 10 December 2014” so here is the link: http://themeforest.net/item/pyxis-a-creative-digital-products-shop-blog
