Hello, i`m working on my first theme that i will try to release on TF and while checking the theme with the Them Check plugin, i got some Info and Error messages i`d like to ask you about.

1. Info: iFrames

some of my shortcodes (embed youtube, vimeo, google Docs PDF viewer, etc) use iFrames to display the content.

2. Info: hardcoded links

i developed a dashboard widget that links to a series of video and written WP tutorials, as well as to some documentation files hosted on googleDocs (publicly shared). all these links are hard-coded.

3. TimThumb Warnings

i get a lot of these

my question is:

if i explain the reviewer why i use iFrames and hardcoded links, will he ignore the Infos listed by ThemeCheck?

also, will he ignore the TimThumb warnings?

thanks in advance for your help! andi

Hi, sorry to bump this, but isn`t anyone out there who could give me some advice regarding the iframe/timthumb/hardcoded item notices in ThemeCheck?

could a reviewer maybe chime in?

thanks, andi

Hi andi,

glad you asked here, here’s my past experience about this stuff…

1. Info: iFrames some of my shortcodes (embed youtube, vimeo, google Docs PDF viewer, etc) use iFrames to display the content.
everybody used iframes so no worries about it, just an INFO

2. Info: hardcoded links i developed a dashboard widget that links to a series of video and written WP tutorials, as well as to some documentation files hosted on googleDocs (publicly shared). all these links are hard-coded.
thats ok.

3. TimThumb Warnings i get a lot of these
why not use custom post thumbnail feature on WP

also, will he ignore the TimThumb warnings? No you must fix all warnings you have

please make sure you fix all the WARNINGS and RECOMMENDED you get…

Hi Mabuc, thank you for your answer!

regarding timthumb: i was thinking to get rid of it, but i see that lots of themes use it here. so i assumed it`s OK to use it.

you are right about the native WP image resizing. i`m testing AQ Resizer (made by a fellow TF member).

thanks again for your info! andi

in honesty i dont think you’ll have any issues with these errors, i recently carried out a theme check on an elite authors template and it threw up ALOT of errors including timthumb, ive also seen premium themes php warnings suppressed rather than fixed.
