Hi,

I use Firebug for Firefox. I was wondering which are the mandatory steps I should make (using the Firebug) before submitting a template for ThemeForest?

For instance: Tools – Validate (css, html, etc). What else should I check? (or would be a good idea to check)

Hi,

first check your theme in all major browsers (Chrome, Opera, Safari, Firefox, IE10, IE9 and IE8 – IE8 is still mandatory). Then if it is responsive check it on mobile devices. If you don’t have tablet or smartphone there are some cool free tools with which you can check it. Make sure that all of your HTML, CSS and js files are valid. Use W3C validators and JS Hint for that. Also, if you are using google web fonts don’t forget to use fall back to some operating system font. That’s all I can remember for now.. Hope this helps :). Good luck with your theme! :)

As a side note, W3C validation and JS Hint are both technically non-required. If you check almost any theme from the recent submissions something like 90-95% of them won’t pass. It’d be a silly requirement anyway, especially the W3C one.

^ I was soft-rejected due to both of those validations recently.

JS Hint validation is required.
