Hi everyone,

Currently, I am using require_once/include to import different functions in functions.php using:

include( 'functions/heading.php' )

Theme check advises me to use “get_template_part()”. How can I achieve this?

Forget about that, Theme check cannot be that smart ;)

If those included files are php code only (functions/classes/etc.), they cannot be template part

By using get_template_part() it allows users to edit that particular file by adding their own version in a child theme. If it is a file they are unlikely to need to edit then using include shouldn’t be a problem. If it’s something like a navigation bar or section of HTML they might want to edit then go with get_template_part().
