ThemeForest, a WordPress theme marketplace has recently released a new guidelines for theme developers. The changes are fairly majors which that a there is a pretty share of people who agree with the changes and to people who don’t. As mentioned in the announcement, developers will have about eight weeks to get their theme within the new standards.
A lot of developers who don’t agree with the new requirements may have a lot of editing to do specially with the shortcode restrictions. Others like the fact of these new changes because it helps clean up the mess found in most ThemeForest themes.
