If you have a hard reject, then you cannot fix anything to the theme. It means that the theme doesn’t have the proper design quality, so you need to create another one from scratch, one which should look much better, just as the new themes published each day.
KrownThemes, not true! I had a hard reject first time I submitted my latest theme. It was a good concept but I was in a hurry to catch the deadline of one of envato’s contests and I didn’t pay enough attention to the fonts and the general spacing. I was pissed off for about a whole weekend, swearing that I would never submit to envato again (yeah, designers can have pretty big egos). After that I put on my big girl pants, I took another look at the theme, I corrected what needed to be corrected and I got accepted. Same theme, same concept.
I’m in the same situation, how should i validate texteditor (in Theme Options) http://lpd-themes.d.pr/1j42t ?
Any help and suggestion.Thank you
Had the same question a couple of months ago and someone on the forum pointed me to this function: https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_kses
After using this to validate my text editor output, my theme was accepted (wow, sounds like one of those cheesy testimonials, doesn’t it :D)
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!
