What are the one (or 2) most important things you have learned or can give as advice for a new submitter?

I am just about ready to submit my first theme to theme forest and I want to make sure I am buttoned up. The last thing I want to do is forget some thing silly.

What’s some insight you have?

Thanks! Tim

Are these soft rejections usually referencing HTML/CSS/JS or the way things look?

How do they assess code?

Nice post aleluja :)

One thing I’ve learned is to never underestimate the time it will take to test your theme and to write your documentation.

I use to think I could clean up, test, write the docs and create the preview images all in one day and was always left disappointed when I wasn’t able to achieve it in that time frame.

Now Ive started to set out 2 days to test and clean and 1-2 days to write the documentation and create the preview images.

Validate your markup, test every page in every supported browser with script console open, make sure there are no js error, test on real mobile hardware if possible.

this would help avoiding technical rejections but the issue could be design related, in that case, don’t over-react and follow the suggestions in the rejection mail.

when everything else fails, try the alternate review process:

+1 , you can be sure that those sites like RESPONSINATOR could be very misleading.

You may or may not get soft rejected (if you make it that far) and told to run it through the developer plugin and include a license.txt file, etc. It’s annoying, especially when you already do these things but they’re just making sure you don’t release any shoddy code.
