Here is some user feedback to consider before your review.

  • I am glad to see a fallback menu, but I don't need two! Perhaps let the main one fallback and the other be blank, or have each check if the other is set.
  • The fallback menus are not styled the same as the custom menus. The character for the submenu arrows shows as a box, and the submenus do not have a background color.
  • On a small window, I can't see the menus or any menu icons. But if I hover in the right place, the top menu icon is visible and there is a menu dropping down. The other menu icon does not show, but I can see the menu if I hover in the corner. This doesn't make much sense for touch screens which have no hover.
  • There is a facebook icon in the top right. It is not a link. This should not be showing by default.
  • Comments are showing the ordered list number, which is confusing for paged and nested comments. Try using CSS to hide the number or CSS counters to make it more logical.
  • The footer link says " Theme: the-best by Underscores.me." and links to automattic.com. If it is theirs, you should not have submitted it. If you based your theme on theirs, remove that and give proper attribution in the readme file. You can link to your own site instead.
  • The Custom Menu widget in the sidebar does not show the nesting of the links.
  • <h6> is quite small. How is that a heading?
  • Nested lists do not look nested. (user content and comments)
  • The bullets and numbers of lists are farther left than other content text.
  • The <q> tag is unstyled (default removed).
  • You might want to hide the menu, comment form, widget areas for the print styles.
  • Customizer, Header Image - I set a header image, but it was not shown.
  • Remove rtl.css or add actual styles to it.
  • Theme is tagged featured-images and featured-image-header, but does neither.
  • Theme is tagged editor-style, but does not supply a stylesheet.
  • See Proper Copyright/License Attribution for Themes to list all resources used (PHP, JS, CSS, fonts, images).

Hello minathemes,

I'm starting your theme's review. I'll update my points here once I complete it.

Hello,

I have gone through your theme and below are my comments:

REQUIRED:

  • The theme tags in style.css and description must match what the theme actually does with respect to functionality and design. - Your theme is not compatible with following tags but you have added them in style.css: editor-style, featured-image-header.
  • The sticky post should be distinctly recognizable in some way in comparison to normal posts.
  • All default WordPress widgets should be styled properly.

RECOMMENDED:

  • Wrong Header Text Color default value.
  • Specing issue for sidebar -

  • Dropdown icon & Text Overlapping issue -

  • Spacing issue -

  • Nested lists not styled properly

  • Readability - In most of the places, your font size is not readable.

  • Mobile menu works on hover making it difficult to operate on mobile
  • No noticeble difference between categories, tags & edit button.

Final words:
Though your theme is not rejected, it needs a lot of improvements. Do spend a good amount of time & efforts on designing your theme. It has too many design issues like spacing, font-size, line-height etc.

I look forward to reviewing your submission once you’ve made all the changes!

Regards,
Nilesh G

Hello,

Found more 'REQUIRED' issues in your theme:

  • Any custom features, templates, options or any limitations (for example menu restrictions), should be explained. Enough documentation should be provided. - You have not provided any documentation other than installation.
  • Comment form should be styled properly

https://s1.postimg.org/vmxrrmtzj/Screen_Shot_2017-07-05_at_10.11.07_PM.png

Unfortunately, your theme is rejected because your theme has 5 or more required issues. Do work on all the mentioned issues and submit theme again in a new ticket.

Regards,
Nilesh G
