Hi, I am trying to create a advertise and my ads keep getting  disapproved for Destination mismatch. Any kind of help is appreciated.
This is my Final URL: (Its a themeforest item | a wordpress theme)
https://themeforest.net/item/palila-wordpress-blog-theme/19042258?ref=magnumthemes001

Good morning. Start with reading the google documentation about destination mismatch. You provided your final url but what is the display url?

The following is not allowed:

Not allowed Ads that don't accurately reflect where the user is being directed

Examples: Using the display URL "www.google.com" but leading to a landing page with the URL "www.youtube.com"; using the keyword insertion feature in the top-level or second-level domain of your display URL, such as "www.{keyword}.com"

Not allowed A domain or domain extension in the display URL that doesn’t match the final URL

Examples: Display URL: google.com and Final URL: example.com; Display URL: example.com and Final URL: example.org

Well, Adwords sets the Display URL automatically:

www.themeforest.net
Which got dissaproved. I saw for Avada theme's Adwords ads they did Display URL:

www.themeforest.net/avada

So I also tried (I know this was stupid of me)

www.themeforest.net/palila

I have read the documentation. I just can't understand the issue.

Marked as Best Answer.

Alright. So my ads finally got approved. My Final URL was
https://themeforest.net/item/palila-wordpress-blog-theme/19042258?ref=magnumthemes001
So when I removed the "?ref=magnumthemes001" part and changed to
https://themeforest.net/item/palila-wordpress-blog-theme/19042258
It worked.
