Why have you copied the description from Business One Page?
I have already explained that copying and claiming a theme as yours is not acceptable.

Hello @poena,
Yes, you've explained that. On last theme I've done everything based on GPL License. I've followed a Theme. I thought this allows GPL License. Personally I don't copying works also, I've followed that theme but it wasn't not 100% copy work. I can assure you that, it will be never happened again.

Now about Reader WP Theme - This is our own Designed Theme. I've Developed this theme based on "Underscores" Framework. You know better what is Underscores !!

The default Description of Underscore Theme is "Description: A Simple Responsive Wordpress Theme"

I forgot to change this. Hope it clears to you now !!!

GPL allows cloning, but there are additional requirements besides the GPL compatible license.

This text is not from underscores:

Thank you.
There are still more than 5 required issues with the theme, so I will close it as not approved. You can still submit a new version once you have fixed the problems.

(Note that using a fresh copy of underscores instead would solve some of these problems. )


Themes may have a single footer credit link, which is restricted to the Theme URI or Author URI defined in style.css.

The correct text domain is your theme slug reader-wp-lite, please replace reader-lite.
There is a large amount of text that is missing translation functions.

The Display Site Title and Tagline option in the customizer is not working correctly.
The WordPress admin car covers the menu button when I am logged in.
I cannot see where the header image is used, I can't get it to work.
In the screenshot, the image used as the default header image is showing where the custom logo is...

Remove or update this file that still refers to underscores:

No minification of scripts or files unless you provide original files.
There are several javascript and css files that are missing the original, non minified files.

Themes are required to use core-bundled scripts rather than including their own version of that script. For example jQuery.

All untrusted data should be escaped before output.
All instances of home_url needs to be escaped as

esc_url( home_url( '/' ) );

Please never do this without escaping: echo get_theme_mod, it is not safe, trust no one.
See https://developer.wordpress.org/themes/theme-security/data-sanitization-escaping/

Remove any code, files or folders that are not used by theme.

Provide a unique prefix for everything the Theme defines in the public namespace, including options, functions, global variables, constants, post meta, etc.
add_image_size names needs to be prefixed.
enqueued google fonts needs to be prefixed
This needs a more unique prefix: wpdocs_theme_add_editor_styles

Remove one of the duplicate:

register_nav_menus( array(
	    'primary' => __( 'Primary Menu', 'reader-lite' ),
	) );
