Hi @desirepress ,

Your theme has been reviewed against this Theme Review Guideline.

As part of the new theme directory guidelines, reviewers may now close tickets if a theme has 5 or more issues. This is part of our long term goals to improve the theme quality and shorten the queues. You can read more about this change here: https://make.wordpress.org/themes.

Please do not get discouraged by the ticket being closed. We want you to resubmit your theme, but we do ask that you spend more time making sure that your theme meets all the requirements. You can upload your updated theme here: https://wordpress.org/themes/upload/

Because of the large number of themes waiting for review, we might not be able to follow up immediately. We will review your update when your theme reaches the top of the review queue.


  • REQUIRED: Please implement proper sanitization for values when saved to database. https://codex.wordpress.org/Data_Validation#Input_Validation Eg, sanitize_text_field() should be used to sanitize text field, esc_url_raw for URL field, for sanitizing field with HTML tags, use wp_kses_post() for sanitization, use absint() to sanitize positive integer.

Hello @imranaliweb,

I have solved maximum of your points, but having some issue in some....

1)REQUIRED: Logo feature is not working.
-- I have checked this, and its working, can you please elaborate this in detail.

2)REQUIRED: Translation strings in HTML attribute needs escaping also. Please check thoroughly. Eg, inside placeholder, <?php printf( ( 'Search Results for : %s', 'fotopress' ) ?> should be <?php esc_attr_e('Search Results for : %s', 'fotopress'); ?>

-- For this point, i have replace the code for printf like this....
<?php esc_attr_e( 'Category Archives : '.single_cat_title( , false ), 'fotopress' );?>

and this giving me warning on theme check:

Warning: More than one text-domain is being used in this theme. This means the theme will not be compatible with WordPress.org language packs.
The domains found are fotopress

Can you please explain me above points, so that i can resolve this.

Please let me know.

Hello @desirepress,
You can check your theme by using the below two plugins,

https://github.com/WPTRT/theme-sniffer/releases/download/0.1.4/ns-theme-check.0.1.4.zip [Errors need to be fixed and Warnings are things that need to be checked manually.]
Hope all the issues mentioned by the previous reviewer is fixed in this version.

This plugin will help to know the issues mentioned by the reviewers.

Make sure your theme is developed based on the guidelines. https://make.wordpress.org/themes/handbook/review/required/
Before re-submitting themes, please check Theme Review Guidelines very thoroughly.

@wpstart I moved ticket back to queue as you did not post first comment within 2 days. In the future review, at least make a hello comment within 2 days that you are going to review :-)

here are couple issues:


  • on archives: -- https://content.screencast.com/users/Gio_28/folders/Jing/media/49d07387-a227-40e3-8881-dab95dd28cc8/2017-12-15_0332.png


  • searchform.php --> remove Form ID to ovoid issue when user put multiple search form in a page
  • header.php --> syntax error on line 94

Other than that theme looks great
