My Submission was rejected, but no specifics on why

Hello There,

So 10 days ago I submitted an SMF (forum software) Theme, this isn’t my first time creating themes for the software and I know my way around it very very well, I received an email that it was rejected, with no specifics about the reason, and saying that can’t even try to fix what’s wrong and submit it again.

I get that there are no SMF Themes at all on ThemeForest, but does that mean there is no way to try and see if they sell ?


Assuming it was submitted to the correct category then I don’t see why it couldn’t go into Misc part of forums

That rejection would usually mean that the issue is with coding or design rather than anything else. I would expect that the reviewer would tell you if there was no category for it to go into. What’s the demo link?

That’s the category it was submitted to since there is no seperate category for SMF

Let’s assume there is a coding/design issue, it would only be a small mistake as like I mentioned this isn’t my first time making themes for the software

The message did not say that it had no category to go to, so I suppose that’s not the issue.

Just in case I’m stupid and missed something from the email, here’s what I received:

I take it that I won’t know exactly why it was rejected ?
