ThemeReview.co, the theme review service started by Emil Uzelac and Justin Tadlock earlier this year, announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with StudioPress and Envato. Those who create themes for Genesis or ThemeForest can now have them reviewed by both before selling them in a marketplace.
Themes developed for ThemeForest that are reviewed by Uzelac and Tadlock will receive a secondary review by the ThemeForest review team. Since both Uzelac and Tadlock are senior reviewers for the WordPress.org theme directory, reviewed themes are more likely to do things the WordPress way instead of locking users in.
ThemeReview.co is only three months old, but partnering with the largest WordPress theme marketplace ought to provide an unlimited amount of business. The question is, will ThemeForest authors spend the money to have their themes reviewed by a third-party?
