We had 2 themes soft rejected because of it, both cases we explained the reasons behind the solution:

and they were eventually approved.

We tested your theme very carefully with plenty popular plugins and everything seems to be working fine ..... Your solution seems to be a bit safer, but if we encounter any issue in the future we will soft disable and inform you about it.

Confirmed by the team, you can use this code to clean up your shortcodes, but keep in mind that later this year shortcodes won’t be allowed in themes*. Good luck. * referring to phase 2 rules now postponed to > march 2014

I only posted item links in case review team wants to check the original discussion, i’ve also included some quotes from the reviewer (omitting the name), hoping that i’m not breaking any rule.

We’re still using the same solution since then and always include a reference to the above discussion in the message to the reviewer, themes have not been rejected for using that code anymore (last one being approved around 20 days ago).

Hi again everyone,

I’ve discussed this with the Jarel and the Review Team, and we believe the BitFade’s proposed method is an acceptable approach.

I think it’d be ideal if functionality that modifies content or the_content filter was in a plugin, which could then be installed with the TGM Plugin Activation class, but that’s not a hard requirement at this point.

This is one acceptable approach, not necessarily the only accepted approach.

I hope that clarifies things for everyone!

Hi Japh, thank you very much for clarifying this so quickly. And yes, you’re right about the plugin aspect, but since we’d already be shipping shortcodes in a plugin, this will find its way in there too. Thanks again!
