How to Test Your WordPress Theme and Make Sure It’s Up to Standards

Did you know that the WordPress Theme Review Team uses some automated testing tools to make sure that themes are up to standards before putting them in the WordPress repository? Now you can use those same automated tests to check on your theme by installing the Theme-Check plugin. The tests will verify that your theme meets the theme review guidelines.

The Theme-Check plugin will help you to know if your theme has the most up-to-date code quality, functionality, template tags and hooks, theme template files, etc. This is especially useful for theme developers but also a handy tool for anyone wanting to sniff out the quality of a theme. Install it and you’ll get the tests through a simple admin menu and all results will be displayed at once.
