  • Resolved Nordvind


    I’m aware that as WP is free, themes for official directory are most likely reviewed by volunteers. But I find the fact that one should wait for months to get the answer extremely embarrassing. My previous theme was reviewed in about month and a half, now I’m waiting 3 weeks, without a single remark on my new theme. You are short of reviewers? Well, I’m up to help you in this. Or are themes reviewed only by a special group of very busy people?
    Please clear this situation to me.
    Thank you.

    It’s that one. Same number of people as last time. But no, you should not be waiting months.

    Is this your theme:

    I’d log in and comment. But also it’s been just 9 days less than a month since it hit trac. When you upload a new version, it resets the clock basically.

    Yes, I was talking exactly about that theme you linked. And, well, if you comment on it, I’ll be very grateful 🙂

    The last theme I submitted (in December) took a little over 3 weeks to be reviewed.

    No no, YOU comment. I have zero sway over the themes or … Anything else really 🙂 I’m just a volunteer forum mod. Login with the same ID/password you use here.

    Hm, don’t really get a point of commenting, as it doesn’t move theme up, or something. Nevertheless, I’ll try it out anyway, thanks.
    And as I got it, one actually can enter the theme reviewers team – . The thing I miss, though, is how on earth do I claim a theme for review.

    Well… It SHOULD trigger alerts. Me commenting doesn’t do anything either, really 😉 You could also email the theme review list and poke ’em, but honestly if it’s been 3 weeks (Dec 12th is … 4 weeks minus 2 days) and a seasoned vet like esmi had to wait 3 weeks, they’re just slow.

    I can’t sort out why you think it’s been months, though.

    As I said, my theme “Clear&Simple” was reviewed in more than a month, and now I see it can occur the same. It’s not that urgent, I’m just building a portfolio, and was willing to include links on official directory, to prove that it’s canonical.
