Thank You All, Looking Forward to Another Year

The Theme Review Team reviews all the themes that go live in the 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. directory. Every single one of them gets a full and detailed review. It’s a huge task – and it is not an easy one.

We can only manage it because of the immense amount of help we receive from the community. From you. Every single person that helps is a member of this team and we thank you greatly for all the effort that has been put in.

Every bit of help someone gives pushes things forward. It made 2019 a year to remember for the Theme Review Team. There have been ups and downs, as always, but this year a massive amount of progress was made on many fronts.

Rather than just review themes, we branched out into more areas.

  • We released several packages for theme authors.
    • Notices package
    • Color Alpha Picker package
  • We worked on the new default theme – Twenty Twenty – alongside @anlino and @ianbelanger
  • We gained edit access to the Theme Developer Handbook.
  • Several projects got MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. commits moving them forward.
  • The Report a Theme button was used a lot to flag problems in themes.
  • We restructured the team and switched from leads into representatives.
  • We started having triages – although infrequently, which will change.
  • We released the minor update to WPThemeReview coding standards.

We are aware that there is a lot to be done, but we hope that with your help we’ll all get there in no time 🙂
