Envato rules state that the naming convention of a theme when you upload it should be like this:
- “This is the File Name” – Capitalize the first letter in each word. Small words like “of” and “an” may be lowercase.
- “Template with CMS” – Capitalize acronyms and abbreviations like XML and PSD.
- “WordPress Template” – Do follow the industry standard even if it doesn’t follow the normal capitalization rules. For example, use jQuery and WordPress instead of Jquery and Wordpress.
Why am I seeing approved themes that do not follow this?
I’ve seen a 1 word theme, all lowercase, not a real word – APPROVED.
I’ve seen a theme end with “html theme”, instead of: “HTML Theme”. – APPROVED.
And various others.
I wouldn’t like to name and shame them by posting who. But have seen it on a few occasions.
Just curious as to how they can be really strict on one-hand, but loose on the other.??
+1 to this post! I’ve seen this happen quite a lot on PhotoDune especially, where there are images with one word titles in all lowercase…
Hi webinest and all! Can you send in some examples of this to the Envato Support team? We’re interested in investigating and correcting any errors you’ve located.
This is not something solvable with support staff’s help. The marketplace supposed to reject automatically the item uploads with single word title.
The marketplaces are too big with 3,813,467 items but there is no sincere efforts to technically avoid abnormal scenarios like these. System needs to have mature development resources to keep support staff work less.
Those conventions didn’t always exist (at least in 2010). I’ve never heard of them before now actually. Some items may just pre-date them.
@Staff – Have submitted a nice long list.
