The author of that theme is one of our reviewers.  XD and i see no problem
with that demo re-direct. But that's just my 2c

Hello all,

Earlier today during a review I encountered the following code in


* The WordPress Theme Directory Preview may not be appropriate for this
theme, so redirecting to custom preview


if( false !== strpos( site_url(), 'http://wp-themes.com'  )) {

                wp_redirect( 'http://demo.onedesigns.com/minimatica/' );



which circumvents the regular theme preview to display something that may
have nothing to do with the theme at all or worse (not the case in this
case, mind you).

I have halted the review after conferring with greuben, who noted that it
was bad and unacceptable, and I recommended a not-approved.

This technique may be old hat but I still like to know what you think about
it, was I right to handle it this way?


Best Regards,

Tony Jansen
