Theme review: "Not-Approved"

Several visual and technical issues were encountered during the review. See below and correct where applicable.

Visual Review

  • => theme doesn't provide styling for several HTML tags such as: dl, dt, var, i, em, b, strong
  • => Post titles on index or single post view taking 2 rows have problems with the line height:

  • => Clearing Floats

Floating of image is not done properly (pagination is next to the picture)

  • / Menu has insufficient top margin and overlaps some of the letters in the site description:

  • / Theme supports large menus on 2 rows. However second row items right above the sidebar are hardly clickable (second row overlaps the sidebar and due to z-index issues menu item could be clicked only on item's top corner)

Code Review


  • => Lines 3 to 5 for the SERVER variable check are not required anymore and the direct usage of $_SERVER is not recommended (please remove the three lines)
  • => Use the comment_form() WordPress function instead of the custom form with manual parsing


  • => print.css is imported incorrectly - please use wp_enqueue_style for CSS embedding


  • => Add IDs to your sidebars to avoid conflicts with other themes and updates
  • => Using direct access to options is considered insecure. Please refer to Settings API for better integration of your admin options.
  • => Add a prefix to your $options and $style variables (and all other theme related variables) as per the guidelines recommendation
  • => use wp_enqueue_style for rounded corners and custom css file

If there are any issues once resolved, please re-submit your Theme using the uploader tool on wordpress.org/extend/themes, and a new Trac ticket will be generated. This ticket will be open for the next 48h.
