  • I got this error message when I am trying to submit my theme to wordpress.

    We’ve detected ads as part of your theme. They need to be removed before your theme will be allowed into the theme directory.

    However, my theme doesn’t have any sponsor links. Does it refer to my theme’s google adsense integration feature?

    Thank you.

  • Themes with Google Adsense integration features usually come through fine. Do you have an active use of Adsense on your themes?

    Do you get this error from the upload process or as an email saying your theme has been reviewed?

    Hi douglashanna, thanks for the reply.

    Yes I got this error from the upload process and I got no email from wordpress. I am pretty sure it did not even pass the upload process.

    The adsense feature is disabled by default.

    What might be the problem?

    Thank you.

    Which part of the theme files it checked during the upload process?

    That usually gets flagged because the upload process has detected what it thinks are active ads being displayed in the theme.

    Can you send a copy of the theme zip file to themes AT wordpress DOT org and with a note mentioning the ad error? I can then take a look at it and fine tune the ad detection if that’s what is needed.
