I created DarkMystery Theme for me and but I then posted that for public and just uploaded it at WordPress Themes Directory which has less chances of approval I guess because I went through a process and realized that I should have taken care of few things before creating that theme. DarkMystery was not for public though, but anyways I have posted it. That is more of a custom theme with a little bit of Twitter love. I am referring you all about what you should take care before creating a theme, in case you are going to submit it to WordPress Official Directory (O’ Yes! there are rules for the game). For me, I guess I will prepare more themes now and post those there. You need to know where to upload WordPress Theme? What you should include in WordPress Theme CSS? What tags you should use in WordPrerss Theme CSS? Where can you read all about rules and checklists about developing a successful standard WordPress Theme?
