Twenty Twenty-Three: Screenshot of the new default theme

The screenshot of the new default theme TT3 is showing the backend editor, not the front view of it. Our theme guideline is,

  • The screenshot must not look like an advertisement. The reviewer can subjectively ask you to change screenshots if they find that it is not appropriate.

It seems that showing Global Styles in the screenshot is like an advertisement of the feature. I'm wondering if other themes can also update the screenshot showing Global Styles or Editor.

It is a default feature, to me no different than displaying a navigation menu, social links, widgets or site logo.

It is not false advertising - pretending to have features that don’t exist, nor actual advertising "buy our premium products", which the requirements are meant to prevent.

This seems different just because they have used the theme screenshot from the backend editor. While reading the discussion, they want to show the available theme styles which are listed under the theme screenshots interactively and have no need to display from the image.

The style variations are only visible on the theme directory, not on the theme screens in WordPress.

I don't mind this being shown but I want to be sensitive to where everyone is feeling today as this ticket has sat for a while. Can I ask how @kafleg, @shivashankerbhatta and @poena you feel today on where this should go?

To be clear, my recommendation would be we close this with 'won't fix' as it has been this way for a while and doesn't appear to have been settled.

Because there are more ways to view the variations now, both in the theme directory and in the Site Editor, I wouldn't mind if the screenshot was replaced with one that does not show the variations.

  • Keywords needs-patch added

@poena ok then that's fairly clear feelings and I am happy to respect those. I will add a 'needs-patch' to this so we can get something as a suggestion if everyone does agree this time.
