In case you missed it, today saw the new default theme Twenty Fifteen enter track.
Twenty Fifteen is in /trunk!
This is a really exciting time to be a theme reviewer as it means we now get to poke it, prod it and test every pixel and letter of it’s code.
If you’ve not been around for a default theme or just not dived in before reviewing one, the time couldn’t be better with Twenty Fifteen. What we need to do as a team is make sure it not only passes the guidelines, but that we test everything we can.
Default themes need reviewers, they need us to do what we do best and that’s test, test, break and more testing. We can create patches. We can run it through as many devices as we can get our hands on. We can join in and make sure this is the most tested, most robust default theme ever!
There are weekly meetings going to be held on Tuesday at 15:30 UTC in #wordpress-dev on IRC. I hope to see as many theme reviewers there as possible.
Tickets for the theme are reported a over on WordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ track. I hope to see lots from your testing reported there. If you’re unsure how to report then pop into #wordpress-themes or along to the weekly meetings and we’ll make sure you get the bug reported.
Here you can find the first ticket as it goes into core Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.:
So, put on your magnifying glasses, every review matters! Lets get reviewing and breaking Twenty Fifteen!
