I am new to Themeforest & want to create my first theme for the website very soon. My skills are in UX Design but I can also develop Wordpress themes (diverse I know).

My question is: Can you submit a wireframe/visual to Themeforest to be approved before any theme development takes place?

I understand that the final Wordpress version may still be declined but before anything goes off to get coded, it’s a good idea to get the design approved right?

I have looked for the answer but to no luck. Any help for would be appreciated.

No, there is no service like that provided.

You could submit a PSD to the PSD Template category, or an HTML version to the Site Templates category, but like you said these are still not guarantees of acceptance to the WordPress category.

Hello,

You should submit it into PSD template category. That’s the hardest category to get into.

Chances are high that if your PSD design will be approved, your WP theme will be too. Not 100% guaranteed, but you have a better chance.

Theme approval will also highly depend on code quality.

Good luck!

Thanks for the replies, I think I’ll submit a PSD first then to ensure the design meets the grade. I understand that it doesn’t guarantee a Wordpress approval but will surely help.
