>> Hi all,
>> Just reading through the guidelines I came across a point that I'm not entirely clear with. The naming guideline states:
>> "Themes are not to use related Theme names (e.g. WP Twenty Fourteen, Twenty Fourteen WP, The Twenty Fourteen, etc.) in their name"
>> Has anyone come across a case where they've had to reject a theme on this basis?
>> For example, my theme is named "Engrave (Lite)", if I'm understanding this correctly would this mean that if an author submitted a theme named "Engrave" it would be rejected?
>> Thanks for any help as always!
