Themeforest WordPress Soft-Rejection Reasons

1. Prefix all your custom functions/variables/classes. A good rule of thumb is to prefix everything with your theme initials and your own initials. http://nacin.com/2010/05/11/in-wordpress-prefix-everything/
Example: http://envato.d.pr/11iFB/2zF1qyXn

How to test the blog/posts layout/functionality - Import the Theme Unit Test [http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Unit_Test] file and make sure that:

- Posts display correctly, with no apparent visual problems or errors.
- Posts display in correct order.
- Page navigation displays and works correctly.
- As "sticky posts" are a core feature, the theme should style and display them appropriately.
- Lack of body text should not adversely impact the layout.
- Theme must incorporate both the "Tag" and the "Category" taxonomies in some manner.
- Floats are cleared properly for floated element (thumbnail image) at the end of the post content.

6. Make sure the CSS file is well documented with proper table of contents. ex:http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2008/05/02/improving-code-readability-with-css-styleguides/

7. Data Validation issues have been found in your theme. All dynamic data must be correctly escaped for the context where it is rendered.

9. wp_reset_query - if you’re not using query_posts(), then you really shouldn’t be messing with the main $wp_query variable, as wp_reset_query() does.

10.query_posts() will change your main query and is not recommended. Only use if absolutely necessary

11.Try wp_reset_postdata() instead.
