I believe it would be a good addition to the upload process if the submitters could see their declined submissions, and make the changes to those entries without starting the process over.
To put this into context, if a theme is rejected for minor reasons such as a CSS bug in a browser, the author can go into the rejected submission, and upload a revised file without starting the whole process from scratch.
It would be especially helpful for not re-writing a description of the theme.
I suppose you could save the description directly onto your computer, but it’s just something that stuck out to me as a first time submitter.
I completely agree with this. I uploaded a wordpress theme recently and it was denied because I didn’t include the default wordpress image styles (which is a good reason), so I had to recompile and retype all of the description stuff.
Please do this!
Same by me, but i copied the description before ;D! It’s very useful I think.
ooo that would be good, I’m not sure if we have a development ticket about that, I’ll check and put one in if not!
If you get a chance, could you check to see if my description is still intact from my previously rejected theme? It was called “Simple Please!”. I just submitted a ticket for it.
A while ago I suggested sort of an XML type template that TF could supply. Authors could input all of their description text and values into this text file and save one per file…then while uploading they can click a button like “load from text”...browse to the text file and have the fields populate from the text file…this way the authors will always have all of their stuff saved. I think that would be a bit easier than trying to get the system to save all of the files.
