@Ciprian this kind of feedback is always appreciated so, thank you!

That said, Themes and Templates are rigorously tested. Just to give you an example, themes are tested with:

  • WP_DEBUG enabled.
  • Theme Check
  • Debogger
  • Log Deprecated Notices
  • We check if themes are enqueueing stylesheets and JavaScript properly.

And the list goes on and on.

Code quality is one of our main priority and we’re working hard to improve this aspect.

Thanks for the list Ivor, I didn’t know about Debogger

Great list Ivor – I’d personally add YSlow or something like http://gtmetrix.com/dashboard.html for theme authors (run it on a new theme install before you add in any extra plugins as those tend to muck up the rankings).

It’s not a “compliance” check by any means and it’s not fullproof (I disagree with some of their common results), but it’ll spot a lot of obvious issues and help push you towards cleaner, more efficient code. Even popular themes on here consistently get C, D and F rankings (heck, even the best sites on the web get poor scores – css-tricks only warrants a “C”), but I’ve found that it’s an awesome tool for finding spots that you can improve on.

I did not know this. Because of the long list of styles and scripts and the hardcoded integrations I came across I thought different, but if you say you are using all these plugins, that’s fantastic! You personally got me +100 points in my book. I think this is one of those things that had to be confirmed for some developers, and it’s a good thing it has been confirmed, no more debating over speculations.

Thanks Ivor!

Awesome post Ivor, thanks for chipping in! Maybe a blog post to follow this up would help, so its referenced somewhere for all authors to see?

Would love to expand it to how you test tumblr themes, site template, email templates etc. I understand you may need to keep this private.

Again many thanks for replying, and thanks to Ciprian for asking the question :)

Not sure what you mean by move over – I know I’ve said some stupid things in the past however I’ve changed and I’d prefer you not put me on the same level as him.

HI!

Welcome to the conversation!

I’m just wondering, what level is that? Oh, if you mean what I think you mean, thank you! I am blushing, But let’s face it man, I don’t like to be considered at such a high level, I’m just a normal guy like you.

Thanks for your intention though.
