We are a group of volunteers who review and approve themes submitted to be included in the official WordPress Theme directory.
We do license, security, and code quality reviews.
We help build and maintain default themes.
The primary focus of the team is to help theme authors transition to blockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience.-based themes.
I’ve actually wondered as to what most of us like to use when it comes to reviewing themes and possibly even creating themes.
One thing I would like to see is the use of VVV. I know most of us have never tried it out or even heard of it but I feel we can all benefit from using it. Why? Because as the video states it does make it easier to be on the same page.
I would love to see what you all use for your testing and development of themes. Or even plugins.
Theme Developers: thanks to Otto, the WordPress.org Themes and Templates support forum now incorporates some features that have been available to PluginPluginA plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party support forums for some time:
1) Support topics added using the “Write a new topic” link on a Theme’s Extend Listing page will now automatically be tagged with Theme Name, and the support topic subject appended with “[Theme: Theme Name]”.
2) Support topics tagged with “Theme Name” will automatically be added to the Theme’s support forumSupport ForumWordPress Support Forums is a place to go for help and conversations around using WordPress. Also the place to go to report issues that are caused by errors with the WordPress code and implementations..
These changes will facilitate Theme developers keeping track of support topics for their Themes, and will facilitate support forum volunteers who attempt to resolve support topics in the Themes and Templates forum.
So, please encourage your users to make use of these new features! Especially, encourage them to add support topics via your Theme’s Extend listing page.
