It actually took me 3 or 4 uploads on my first handful of products. I still get a rejection or two even after releasing over 10 products now… there’s just a lot to keep track of, the reviewers role is to make sure that nothing gets overlooked/forgotten. Keep trying!

Thanks for the encouraging words Brandon! Seems like anyone at any point can still get rejected.

I got rejected once, then was accepted, and just recently had to upload again. ( Never forget to include the WordPress GPL License ) :D

I agree with you iPad! At first I thought man my theme is perfect. But then I realized it wasn’t even close! I was a bit disappointing at first but then I understood that rejection can sometimes be a positive thing to make you improve :)

You’ll get there as long as you don’t give up on it and continue making improvements one step at a time. Remember that nearly every single one of us has been rejected multiple times. Keep trying and don’t give up on TF yet :)

My first template, It got rejected twice. My second, one , third: none, fourth: none, fifth: soft-rejected because of images :p.

When I submit, i try to make sure everything is working, so it’ll be less work for the reviewer and faster time for you getting your template for selling.

Before you submit, try to check everything extensively in each browser, try crazy stuff like adding a ton of content on the page to see if it breaks or retains the look. Sometimes, when you add a lot of stuff, the design breaks in some cases. So yea.
