Overall it's a well coded theme but there are still some:


  • style.css - Theme URI: http://www.sysbird.jp/wptips/ is not valid. Theme URI, if used, is required to link to a page specifically related to the Theme. If a demonstration site or page is being used, the content must be related to the theme itself.
  • style.css - the theme Description has some spelling and grammar issues. If not else, it would make it hard for discovering by the theme search function on wordpress.org.
  • Themes are required to use theme-slug as textdomain for translation. 'BirdTIPS' should be replaced with 'birdtips'.
  • The theme lacks a readme.txt file or any other kind of documentation file.
  • The theme lacks info about the licenses of the included image files (header images, icons). Ideally, those would be listed in the readme.txt (or other documentation file).
  • Headings h1 and h2 have the same font size.
  • Some floated elements within posts are not properly cleared (see the attached screenshot with the Theme Unit Test example).
  • Way too big value for $content_width (1600). The result: over-sized embedded videos, expanding way outside the container width.
  • Posts with no Title must still display a link to the single page Post view.


  • Themes are recommended to use theme-slug as a unique prefix for all custom function names. 'BirdTIPS' is recommended to be replaced with 'birdtips'
