We’re now accepting plugins

Justin and I are very excited to announce a soft launch of plugin reviews.

Currently we are accepting only a limited number of plugins until we determine the best way to handle the pricing structure and rest of the process.

For the time being each plugin will be evaluated individually and cost will be based on the amount of code and the complexity.

To arrange a review, please press the green button below.

P.S. If you are interested in helping us grow faster, please read our previous post.

Growing organically

Just month ago, we Skyped with StudioPress founder Brian Gardner and received his recommendations for Genesis child theme reviews.

Genesis is pure code-harmony and with endless possibilities.

Last week Envato’s finest Stephen Cronin, Will Herring and Ben Fornarino helped us launch our Envato Studio service under a brand new category called Expert Feedback.

Theme Review, Co. is the first service of this type anywhere in the world but if you don’t have a fat chunk of funding this can be a pretty scary thing.

With that said, being a 100% self-funded startup both Genesis and Envato Studio are definitely big deal for us.

Now the question few already asked me:

Would you accept an accelerator?

Short answer, Yes we would!

Both Justin and I are still working with our clients and individual services, this is sure future but not our primary source of income yet.

With a right push this service can also grow exponentially.

Few weeks later…

Launch went well

You have probably heard about my new service by now. You may have seen that my service is now our service – now only few weeks old – and forces are doubled with Justin Tadlock along the side.

Tweets of glory

Now, we sail…

Theme reviews as a service

Since 2010, I’ve been evaluating WordPress themes – making sure things are done well and helping theme developers along the way.

In the WordPress Community, I am a senior theme reviewer and administrator. I’m also the creator of some of the most popular themes. And folks who downloaded and used my themes on their websites… they know firsthand about my support and dedication to their goals as end users.

Reviewing themes is something I love. And I’m very good at it.

Creating a WordPress theme is challenging, exciting and rewarding. But theming is not easy or quick, particularly when the work is done by one person. And when it comes time to submit your theme, you want to make a good first impression. I know; I’ve been there.

But in the push to produce, some things get overlooked. And those things can send your end users running.

Look, no one wants to ship a theme with issues. Everyone knows time constraints and the pressure to finish can introduce mistakes even the most seasoned developers miss. That’s completely normal.

But frustrated end users quickly abandon themes they don’t understand or can’t fix. And that first bad review… it never feels good.

Theme Review can help

As the first dedicated WordPress Theme Review service, we can help you make that all important stunning first impression at launch. We’ll take the pressure off with a thorough, professional review of your WordPress theme.

You’ll receive suggestions for improvements along with examples and support within 3 days of submitting your theme to us.

And you’ll be the hero at launch.

Getting Started is Easy

  1. Submit your Theme codebase (GitHub or BitBucket) to us.
  2. We’ll evaluate your theme.
  3. You’ll receive your review along with improvements, suggestions and examples.

Special thanks to Val Lynn for helping me and Sarah Gooding for publishing an amazing post on WPTavern.

Please note that our Theme Review service is our website are not affiliated with the official WordPress theme review team. Your theme will not receive any special treatment from the official theme review team nor will it be reviewed faster than the rest. Our Theme Review Service however will enable faster approval once your theme is assigned to a reviewer.
