Based on feedback and recommendations from the community we have made some minor changes to the WP requirements for Phase 1. We are pleased to announce that the WordPress submission requirements are now finalised!

Phase 1 WordPress Submission Requirements can be found here: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202822450-WordPress-Theme-Submission-Requirements

Phase 1 Q & A can be found here: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202501494-Q-A-for-WordPress-Phase-1-Submission-Requirements

Phase 1 Requirements – Summary of changes

TGM Bundled Plugin Activation Class The TGM Plugin Activation class is no longer a strict requirement. We recommend bundled plugins be included via the TGM Plugin Activation Class or a similar solution to manage plugin dependency. Plugins can be installed from WordPress.org, private repos or a bundled ZIP file.

HTML5 For a theme to be marked HTML5 compliant, the relevant semantic structural elements need to be present and used appropriately.

CSS Media Queries The requirement to group CSS Media Queries at the bottom of a stylesheet has been dropped.

Usage of CDATA markers We have removed the requirements around using CDATA markers:

Inline JavaScript should be wrapped with CDATA markers if the theme uses an XHTML doctype. Inline JavaScript should not be wrapped with CDATA markers if the theme uses an HTML doctype. CDATA wrappers, if used, should be commented if the theme uses mixed XHTML and HTML doctypes. CDATA wrappers, if used, should be escaped using special syntax if the theme uses mixed XHTML and HTML doctypes, and if the theme supports IE6 and older browsers to prevent errors.

Phase 2

Phase 2 rollout was initially scheduled for November 2013 however changes to the requirements for Phase 2 are still under deliberation. Please be assured that no Phase 2 requirements will go into effect until we have gathered additional feedback from the community and we have given ample notice of the changes by publishing our plans for the rollout in advance. We are actively working on Phase 2 requirements, at this stage we plan on gathering more feedback from the community early in the New Year and publishing the requirements sometime after March of 2014.

Thanks for your patience and important feedback!

do we need to make all shortcodes as plugin
Not all. The list of what is accepted and what’s not has been listed and disseminated earlier. My Google-fu is a little weak—I’m trying to find the exact link as we speak. I’ll post back in a second.


what abt custom posttype do we have to make that also as plugin.
Ideally, yes. This way the user will still have access to all his/her data.


can we include plugins in seperate folder without using tgm.
No, it’s recommended to use TGM or an alternative for dependency management.
