HTML5Press Needs a New Name

Help! HTML5Press needs a new name. As you may know, I’ve been trying to get it accepted into the official WordPress Theme directory. I ran the theme checker plugin a lot and fixed all of the issues it found, which were very minimal. It even works nicely with the The Unit Test. However, the name is more of an issue.

Here’s what the reviewer, ZGni, had to say on the ticket:

I don’d believe that HTML5Press is acceptable as a theme name – Reference: ​ for more details.
Due to the above Naming Requirement I’m resolving this ticket as not Approved.
Please see the link above and re-upload the new version with a new name – when done leave a comment here and I’ll pick up the ticket to continue with the review. I also strongly advise you test your theme and check that it meets all requirements before re-submitting it.

Basically, it’s because “Themes are not to use version-specific, markup-related terms”, like HTML5, as stated in the theme naming guidelines (Under the Theme Name heading). So, time for something different.

It’s time to get a new name for HTML5Press before I can re-submit to the theme directory. So, anyone got any suggestions?

I’ve come up with 5 really random ones you can vote on. However, if someone suggests a name that I really like, I may just use it. If nobody suggests one that I really like, the one with highest votes will be the new name. The poll will remain open for 2 weeks, ending 12:01 AM July 26.

What should HTML5Press be renamed to?

  • RootDip (33%, 4 Votes)
  • ScalableSteam (25%, 3 Votes)
  • WareChop (25%, 3 Votes)
  • LeanTweak (8%, 1 Votes)
  • OutputIce (9%, 1 Votes)

Total Voters: 12

Update: I voted for RootDip. I really don’t want WareChop, so I will be very sad if it wins. This was a horrible idea.

Update 2: RootDip it is.

Where to now?
