I am sorry but because the following five errors are present I am closing this ticket.


  • Outputs are not properly escaped. For example lines 156 and 167 in theme-functions.php. Whenever you output within an attribute you need to escape on output. This is a major issue right across your theme and you need to go through your code line by line to make sure that every instance is escaped correctly.


  • The theme uses multiple textdomains, this theme uses 3. In certain situations 2 textdomains are allowed if you're bundling a framework for example. But 3 is never allowed.


  • Theme need to be appropriately licensed. The copyright here is for Automattic.
  • All resources need to be GPL compatible and the license included in the readme file. A number of rescources are not licensed and look to be non-GPL (e.g. sprite.png).

Options and Settings

  • All custom functions should be prefixed. Pleaes check your theme to ensure all functions are prefixed correctly (e.g. sanitize_footer_text()).

Do not get discouraged. A closed ticket is not the end. We want you to resubmit your theme. We do ask that you spend a bit more time making sure that your theme meets all the requirements before we make it live.

If you need help with anything or want me to explain further, don’t hesitate to post here in this ticket. I’m happy to answer any questions you have. Or, feel free to post over on our Slack channel.
