Our History

ThemeReview.co provides a high-quality Theme Review service. It was first founded on January 4, 2015, by Emil Uzelac, a senior Theme Reviewer at WordPress.org. Only a week later, Justin Tadlock joined the team as a co-owner. Both of the strong WordPress personalities efficaciously provided top-notch Theme Review service with immense passion and dedication.

On July 22, 2015, Sakin Shrestha, Founder of WordPress Nepal, joined the team by acquiring Emil Uzelac ownership. Meanwhile, Emil Uzelac decided to join the Envato Team as a full-time Theme Reviewer. With Emil departing from ThemeReview.co, both Sakin and Justin buckled up and continued providing Theme Review Service with the same enthusiasm.

On September 16, 2019, Justin Tadlock decided to join WP Tavern, one of the reputed WP News Portals. Since then, Sakin, single-handedly, is running ThemeReview.co and providing the best Theme Review service to the community.

Today, ThemeReview.co stands tall as one of the best Theme Review service providers in the community.

The most important thing for me is that I can trust Justin and Sakin. I can trust that they will check your themes security, design, code, best practices and everything there needs to reviewed. And not only review but help you solve the issues. Sami Keijonen

We tested the theme with 3 in-house developers but we couldn’t find that many bugs, but since Emil & Justin has years of experience reviewing themes and since they are the admins of official WordPress.org, they know where to look for bugs in a theme and provide guidance on how to fix them. I want to thank both of them to find the bugs for me and help me fix them before releasing the theme to the mass. You guys saved me months of work. Now I don’t have to waste so many hours providing customer support for those bugs, because they are already fixed – Layer Themes
