Soft rejection

Here is the comment from your Envato Quality team reviewer:

  1. Overall typography still needs improvement in some areas. example: and more.

  2. The typographic hierarchy of this item requires additional work. For more information, please read:

  3. Themes are required to fix all issues that result in a REQUIRED notice in the Envato Theme Check plugin [ ] . There are no longer any allowable exceptions.

It is also strongly recommended that WARNING, RECOMMENDED and INFO notices be resolved if possible. Some may be the result of an issue that is cause for rejection (Reviewers make this decision).

The Envato Theme Check plugin is a fork of the original Theme Check plugin, which has been modified to more closely match these requirements.

  1. There are spacing and alignment issues in this item. Please make sure that all elements are aligned properly and spacing is consistent from section to section. Here are some articles with more information regarding negative space and proper spacing:,

  2. Please ensure sure all default WordPress widgets are styled and display properly in all widgetized areas. You can check with the Monster Widget WordPress plugin [].

  3. Please make sure all default Theme Unit Test content is styled and formatted properly.
    example(s) and there are more:
    Please import the Theme Unit Test [] file and make sure that:

  • All default content is formatted properly.
  • Posts display correctly, with no apparent visual problems or errors.
  • Posts display in correct order.
  • Page navigation displays and works correctly.
  • As “sticky posts” are a core feature, the theme should style and display them appropriately.
  • Lack of body text should not adversely impact the layout.
  • Theme must incorporate both the “Tag” and the “Category” taxonomies in some manner.
  • Floats are cleared properly for floated element (thumbnail image) at the end of the post content.

Reference link:

  1. Please make sure that your theme doesn’t raise any PHP errors, notices or warnings. Enabling wp_debug can help you with this.

  2. Use the correct escaping function for the context where it’s rendered. Example, attributes should use esc_attr(), esc_attr__() or esc_attr_e()

  3. Please ensure your .POT translation file is up to date. Having an outdated .POT file limits the translatable functionality of your theme, which will negatively affect international customers.

  4. All theme text strings are to be translatable and properly escaped.
