Hi !

I’m just curious what are any other plugins used to check your WordPress themes for errors. Besides Theme Check. What would be best for a thurl review? Besides Themecheck, does anyone know of any other plugins used by the review theme? Anyone know any other good picks?

I think that ThemeCheck (actually the modified version here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/themeforest-check/) plus Theme Unit Test http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Unit_Test and having debug activated should be sufficient. You should not over think it.

Theme check is just one tool in a suite of tools, which gives a quick check of the theme review guidelines. The plugin actually runs through as many checks as it can (but not all) of the WordPress.org theme review guidelines. You should still manually check your theme files against the guidelines. http://make.wordpress.org/themes/guidelines/

You’ll definitely want to check against the Theme Unit Test Data. It has a variety of edge cases and commonly-overlooked things you should check for for front-end display. http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Unit_Test

You can also use Debogger, which is a neat tool for printing all debug info in the footer so you’re not searching around the page for debug info, which can sometimes be hidden by the theme’s design. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/debogger/

The Log Deprecated Notices plugin logs the usage of deprecated files, functions, and function arguments, and lets you know where the deprecated functionality is being used. http://wordpress.org/plugins/log-deprecated-notices/

The Monster Widget plugin will load all default WordPress widgets at once. It’s useful if your theme doesn’t overwrite the default WP widgets with custom ones. http://wordpress.org/plugins/monster-widget/

There’s also the WordPress Coding standards, which you should try to follow. http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Coding_Standards

The most important thing is defining WP_Debug as true in your wp-config.php file so that debug info appears.

I’m sure I forgot something, but using the above should be a solid foundation to start from.
