The design itself is great! Really it is but I do understand what the reviewer means by confusing (although I don’t agree with the rest of his comments).
Add a welcome heading above the home blogroll briefly introducing the theme, what users are in for etc…I didn’t know what I was looking at when I first came to the home page. I thought it was a gallery portfolio theme.
Consider adding page to page transitions. This is a clean design and for me just cutting to the posts was kind of a downer for me. Just “spruce” it up a bit and I am certain this will be approved
I think they have demo sites of their own where they install the themes to test. I know for widgets testing they use the Monster plugin. Not sure if the actual site content comes from a plugin as well or if it’s set up on their end manually.
Thanks! I’ve started using this as of this last theme I’m submitting and it’s a big help
Yes, I used the Theme Unit Test plugin but I just saw that it also comes with demo data https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/demo/theme-unit-test-data.xml is that what they’re using? Will give it a shot thanks
Regarding Wordpress theme submissions, is there a plugin that reviewers use to generate, markup and html tags and formatting?
The reason I ask is that I’ve recently submitted a theme that’s been soft rejected and the reviewer points out some single post layout issues http://envato.d.pr/jECU/5g7XSXbB
Looks like something auto-generated for testing and development purposes. Any other others or reviewers out there that can help a little light on this so I can see how they get this formatting issue which I can’t replicate because it works fine on my side.
I read another thread on the forums where a reviewer says that it’s not allowed. I just can’t locate the discussion to send you but apparently it’s not allowed.
It’s not required to include a PSD version of your Wordpress theme so you’re ok submitting it without PSD files.
Thanks for the badge Carmen
