1. Design quality and consistency
- 1000 Design MUST display high aesthetic quality, visual appeal, and should be attractive enough to compete on WrapBootstrap.
- Clarification: Over time the expectation to deliver higher quality designs to customers increases. New items and item updates are expected to meet or exceed the current level of quality in order to ensure those expectations are met.
- Example issues:
- 1001 Design MUST be vector-based.
- Clarification: Designs based on rasterized images will not be accepted. You must provide the original file formats with your item. The more file formats that are included, the more likely an end-user will be able to make use of the design.
- 1002 Item MUST employ consistent branding.
- Clarification: The name of the item as seen from within the item and documentation (in both images and text) must match the name displayed on WrapBootstrap in the item name field and the item description field.
- 1003 Design, documentation, and item description MUST NOT contain spelling or grammatical mistakes.
- Clarification: While simple spelling and grammatical mistakes typically do not affect the functionality of an item, they can give the impression that there is a lack of attention to detail.
- 1004 Item MUST NOT contain violent imagery, overly-sexualized imagery, or nudity.
- 1005 Item MUST NOT contain racial slurs, hate speech, or otherwise inappropriate/offensive language.
2. Item data conventions
- 2000 Name MUST be unique on WrapBootstrap.
- Clarification: It is important that the item's unique name is not already used by another item on WrapBootstrap. When a name is not unique it can cause confusion and branding issues.
- 2001 Name SHOULD follow the format [unique name] [separator] [short description]
- Clarification: Acceptable separators: Hyphen (-), vertical bar (|), colon (:), and tilde (~)
- MyItem - Restaurant Logo
- 2100 Description MUST be written in Markdown syntax.
- Clarification: HTML is escaped and does not render on item pages.
- 2101 Description MUST contain a bulletpoint list of assets included in the item.
- 2102 Description MUST contain a paragraph describing the design and its potential use cases.
- 2103 Description MUST contain attribution links for third-party assets used in the construction of the item.
- 2104 Description MAY contain images.

3. Item screenshot
- 3000 Screenshot MUST be 600x375 pixels in 24-bit PNG format. File size MUST be under 600KiB.
- Clarification: Screenshots will be rejected if they are distorted or if they were previously saved in a lossy format (for example, JPEG or 8-bit PNG).
- 3001 Screenshot MUST be kept up-to-date and reflect the item at its latest approved version.
4. Licenses and attribution
- 4000 Third-party assets used in the construction of your item MUST be properly licensed or free for commercial use.

- 4002Item MUST NOT include third-party assets in the zip file that are not licensed for distribution.
