I am wondering if there is a way to make changes to a theme that has been submitted for review and is waiting in trac. I see in this ticket, that it may be possible, but I'm not sure how: http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/12476#no1

I noticed a few days after submitting my theme that I had left an extra php file in the folder that isn't needed. http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/12497 I also notice a minor error in the style sheet - I put the version number in the theme name. I would really like to fix these two issues, just not sure how to go about it.

Should I fix the errors and re-upload the zip file? Will that make the theme loose it's place in line.. It's been 13 days waiting already.

  • Did you email the review theme? Do you know the theme review mailing list? – brasofilo May 27 '13 at 23:04

Make the changes and re submit the theme, noting on the old ticket (if you have access to it) that you have submitted a new request with changes. They could reject the theme for any violation of guidelines, so your safest bet is to do this.

  • Thanks for your answer, I'm not sure how to change the ticket, I created it, but can't seem to access it to make a modification. I will re-upload the theme and hope for the best. – monkeymays May 28 '13 at 18:45
