Thanks for the review, if there are any issues, please give me a couple of days to fix them before you close the ticket.

About how many days would you like? Personally I'm happy with no more than three days.
One of the first things I did notice was that you have an unopened </span> tag in your single.php file. You will have to submit a new ticket anyway so if you want just post a link to the new ticket after I finish the review on the theme that way you can submit any/all fixes you may have to do. :)

3 days is enough, will submit a new ticket with any/all fixes after the full review :)

  • Says translation ready but I didn't see load_theme_textdomain(), a languages folder or a Text Domain declaration in style.css Language
  • Post thumbnails: I did not see the function the_post_thumbnail() see Post Thumbnails (use of core implementation)
  • HTML errors created were WordPress related except for a stray <span> tag in single.php ( post_links section )


  • Consider using a conditional so that way a visitor doesn't see the notice about no menu selected. current_user_can('edit_theme_options')
  • The favicon link meta tag shows up in the lite version consider removing that
  • Consider adding suport for custom-backgrounds and visual editor
  • Menu CSS. Sorry it kept bugging me because it seems to bring down the submenu by one pixel on every level as you add more levels. see attached image.

Resolution: upload-new-version

Hello Jose,

Will upload new version with the fixes, but theme already uses post thumbnail, line # 15 & 16 in functions.php


#7 @jcastaneda

I didn't see the_post_thumbnail being used in index.php or single.php. In functions.php you are creating the support. You aren't implementing it. It would be like adding register_nav_menu and *not using wp_nav_menu in the theme. :)

i am using

wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), 'Spartanthumb', false, );

in wilto-slider.php, index-mageight.php and index-magseven.php

#9 @jcastaneda

I missed that. My apologies. Even better two minor things to fix. :)

#10 @tskk

No need to apologize :)

Will fix the other issues and add custom background functionality.

New ticket coming up in few hours...
