Unfortunately, your theme is not quite ready for inclusion in the WordPress theme directory. Because of the number of issues found in a partial review, I'm closing this ticket. Please take some time to make sure you familiarize yourself with the theme review guidelines. And, please do resubmit once you've fixed the following issues and feel comfortable that your theme is ready for a second review.

Thanks for submitting your theme. I hope we can include it in the future.

You can find the guidelines here: http://make.wordpress.org/themes/handbook/review/required

Google fonts SSL

When using Google fonts, make sure to use https so that you don't mess up sites with SSL certificates:

wp_enqueue_style( 'magazie-googleapis', 'http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto+Slab:300,400,700|Roboto:300,400,500,700,900|Prata|PT+Serif:400,700', array(), null );

Script handle prefixing

The scripts handle should be prefixed with your theme slug in functions.php:

wp_enqueue_script( 'scripts', get_template_directory_uri() . '/assets/js/scripts.js', array('jquery'), '4.5.0' );

Additionally, this scripts.js file is empty, so you shouldn't be loading it at all.

Prefixing: Function names

Your theme should use the same, unique prefix. There are functions with the following prefixes in functions.php:


Plugin territory: Post view count

Tracking post view counts is plugin territory and must be removed from the theme.

Plugin territory: Disabling comment URL

Disabling the comment URL is plugin territory. Themes should support the core fields.

Plugin territory: Shortcodes in text widgets

This bit of code should be left to plugins. Otherwise, text widgets are broken when a user switches themes.



You're missing the license and copyright/author info for the screenshot image in readme.txt. A link is not sufficient.

You're also missing both the licensing and copyright info for the following items:

  • Shadow BT Roman font
  • Shadow BT Bold font

These must be licensed under a GPL-compatible license.


The magazine.pot file should be renamed to magazie-minimal.pot to match your theme slug.

Furthermore, the text strings in the POT file should match those of your theme. This is from a different theme.


The textdomain used throughout your theme must be exactly magazie-minimal and not magazie.

Default/Demo options

Default theme options for social profile URLs should be empty.


The default footer copyright text should be internationalized.

Loading admin scripts

This code from inc/custom-widget/recommend-widget.php is loading scripts on every admin screen. Use the $hook_suffix parameter to only load when needed.

See: https://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Action_Reference/admin_enqueue_scripts

add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'magazie_recommend_widgets_backend_enqueue' ); 
function magazie_recommend_widgets_backend_enqueue(){     
    wp_register_script( 'magazie-custom-widgets', get_template_directory_uri().'/assets/js/widgets.js', array( 'jquery' ), true );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'magazie-custom-widgets' );

Replying to codexdemon:

All is this you specified error ?

I don't understand the question.

Magzie is the only text domian name where Magzie Minimal is Name of Theme

magazie-minimal is the correct textdomain. We require the textdomain to match the theme name (all lowercase, hyphenated) so that it can use the language packs system on WordPress.org.
