I am testing stuff to learn some WP basics, I am a total noob with WP coding. I installed Launch by ThemeZilla (OrmanClark). They all get “errors” and recommendations.

What’s your take on it? I mean do you do things ok for ThemeCheck or what?

Well if you submit a WP theme with errors / depreciated tags it is going to be rejected. You can ignore the reccomendations and info though :)

You’ll notice if the red text: errors are all fixed your file will pass validation :)

As above, my framework has lots of “recommendations” but it’s only the warnings you need to be wary of (which is normally unused tags).

In a perfect world we wouldn’t have any issues but it’s not a perfect world.

I use Kriesi’s lovely pagination code, so my themes throw out; REQUIRED: No post navigation has been set – that said, it’s clear to see from a quick examination that my theme has post-navigation, so for some things just make sure you’ve got it covered :)

Do it like this:
                <?php if (function_exists('dekciw_pagination')) : ?>
                    <?php dekciw_pagination($pages = '', $range = 2); ?>
                <?php else : ?>
                    <?php posts_nav_link(); ?> 
                <?php endif; ?>

I usually only get a couple of “INFO” and “RECOMMENDED” notices. The only warning I ever get is WARNING: .ds_store Hidden Files or Folders found., which I delete by showing hidden files. :)

I never though of doing this, because clearly, I’m an idiot. Thanks so much :)
