Hello @mebishalnapit
Here is my review. Review is based on guidelines

  • Hard coded styles used in custom-header.php line no. 52, 86 and also found in customizer.php and extras.php
  • hard coded script used in customizer.php line no. 322 and in extras.php line no. 581

#5 @mebishalnapit

Hi @suvanno,

Regarding the hard coded scripts which you have mentioned, it is done in the popular themes already present in the WordPress theme repo such as Twenty Sixteen too, for the Custom Header feature.

Also, since this theme is based upon the _s(underscores.me), for the Custom Header, this framework itself has the inline CSS code for this one. Here is the link:
https://github.com/Automattic/_s/blob/master/inc/custom-header.php

And regarding the inline scripts in the customizer.php file, it is loaded for the admin section only and too, it is done in the theme already available in the WordPress theme repo such as evolve link: https://wordpress.org/themes/evolve/. And same goes for the extras.php file.

If you are not ok with it and want those to be enqueued, then, it will be enqueued.

Thanks.

Regards.

Hello @mebishalnapit

As I believe its always best practice to reduce the internal styles and scripts so please enqueue them if possible and comparing with previously published themes is not relevant because of things changes by time.
and one thing you compared with Twenty Sixteen, I even don't understood Twenty Sixteen text-domain, it is twentysixteen but I guess it should be twenty-sixteen :(

Any way try to avoid internal styles and scripts, designs is good, keep good works going and thanks for creating themes for WordPress.

Hello
ok great, as I figure out that there is no issue found from my side so I am going to approve this theme, Admin will check for the final review.

Thanks for contributing WordPress

Required

  • Do not define the 'menu' parameter in calls to wp_nav_menu(). Use only the 'theme_location' parameter. The reason for this is that, if 'menu' is defined, then WordPress will perferentially output a menu named primary, even if the user has set a menu with a different name to be used in that Theme Location.
  • Post Formats: do not use custom post meta for input/retrieval of post format data/content. If the user switches the Theme, then all of the data/content saved as custom post meta will be unavailable.
  • Custom logo: I am open to discussion here, but since core now (as of WordPress 4.5) now supports a custom logo feature implementation, Themes should also support it. I know that this Theme was submitted pre-4.5 release, but I would be happy to help/provide code to migrate to the core implementation.

Questions/Recommendations

  • What is the purpose of the "Contact Page" page template (page-template\contact.php)?

#12 follow-up: @mebishalnapit

@chipbennett

  1. The first point, recommending to the menu parameter will be removed and submitted, and I also have other changes in the theme too.
  2. For the post format support, I have created the meta box for making the post used in the post format to be unique. Also, I could see some of the themes already existing in WordPress.org theme repo use the same technique too, so, me too have applied the same technique. Yes, I also know that when user switch the theme they lots the meta box content, so, I have only taken account on the post format feature. So, after explaining these, is it really required?
  3. And for the Custom Logo feature, it will be applied and submitted.

The purpose of the Contact Page template is to use the different unique sidebar especially created for this one. It is done so because user may not need to use the plugin for showing their contact page differently.

Thanks.

Great.

Yes, I also know that when user switch the theme they lots the meta box content, so, I have only taken account on the post format feature. So, after explaining these, is it really required?

Unfortunately, yes it is. I double-checked with the other Admins, as well. There are other options, such as searching the post content for the first occurrence of a content-type (video, audio, URL, etc.), and using that for the specialized post-format output. But the content can't be put in Theme-specific custom post meta data.

While I'm sure there are Themes in the directory that do so (because even reviewers can make mistakes and let such things through), it is not the correct approach, and does not provide a good user experience.

  1. And for the Custom Logo feature, it will be applied and submitted.

Great, thanks!

The purpose of the Contact Page template is to use the different unique sidebar especially created for this one. It is done so because user may not need to use the plugin for showing their contact page differently.

Thanks for clarifying. You should probably add some information/documentation, e.g. in the readme file, explaining what that custom page template is for, so users know how to use it.

Can you point me to any url for the post format feature being used in that way? I have searched for it and could not find it.

Hello @mebishalnapit

I found some issues.

  1. background color is not working
  1. Background image is not working, either fix those two or remove tag "custom-background" from your theme
  1. I can't find header logo upload option but there is header logo options. What is that for?
  1. a. show date is not working for me.
  1. b. breaking news is not working for me, opps those two works only if "header Top bar" is activated, so I suggest you to include both of those option inside "Header Top bar"
  1. and again i suggest you to include "header image link" inside "Header Image", because this not making since if you place both of those in separate location
  1. Default Layout is confusion, there are 4 options 1. with right sidebar, 2. with left sidebar, 3. no sidebar, 4. what is that option? Is it padding or margin with both side or Is it with both sidebar? I suggest you to add text below those ratio image so that user can understand what are those for.
  1. Again I would like to suggest you to add primary color inside colors panel.
  1. fucntion without prefixed with textdomain found "wp_bootstrap_pagination", prefix with text-domain and also do for other functions too.

for reference follow: Prefix Everything

#23 @mebishalnapit

@suvanno

Regarding the first and second issue, it is working in my condition. So, in which layout condition are you looking? It is clearly stated that the background image feature is available only in Boxed layout option only in style.css file, ie, in theme description.

Regarding the third issue, it is mentioned that the logo upload option is available through Appearance > Customize > Site Identity > Logo section, but I will be moving it to the respective section too.

Regarding the issue for number 4, I will remove the option of activating the Header Top bar and submit it, and also regarding all the suggestions, I will change those and submit it and for the point 7, I will move it to colors section.

Regarding the wp_bootstrap_pagination function, it was library file so I had not changed the function name. Also, I am considering to remove it and create may own function for it too, and I think you are asking for the wp_bootstrap_navwalker class name, which is also included library file, so is it really required? Since I see many of the theme will do the same and try not to modify those functions.

And finally regarding the issue 6, I will make it and submit.

Thanks.
