Help me on this soft reject

  1. Themes execute the presentation and styling of content while plugins handle content creation and functionality. Anything users will lose upon switching themes is classified as plugin territory. Here are some common examples:
  • Analytics
  • SEO options
  • Forms
  • Non-design related meta boxes
  • Resource caching
  • Dashboard widgets
  • Custom Post Types
  • Custom Taxonomies
  • Shortcodes
  • Widgets
  • Social media “like”, “follow” and “share” buttons
    Anything that falls into plugin territory must be added via a custom plugin.
    You may use TGM Plugin Activation or equivalent to prompt the user to install the plugin on theme activation, but it cannot be activated without user action.

Advance thanks For authors

I had a similar soft reject as you.

You have to move in a plugin instead of the theme all that stuff that the reviewer asked, I know this is hard to hear but it is what you need to do if you want to move on.

I did that, is not that bad :slight_smile:

Is your theme approved or rejected ?

I’m working on it, it took me a week to do this a long with other settings.

This is the best marketplace in the world only the best stuff makes it.

You have to fight for it!

Do you have any approved products on themeforest

Not yet. Working on it.

For me also, we are also working on our first product, cheers! man.
