Code Quality

  • REQUIRED: No core WordPress functions introduced prior to one previous, major WordPress release (3.2) are wrapped in function_exists() conditionals. Please check entire theme!
  • REQUIRED: Themes are REQUIRED to use get_template_directory()/get_stylesheet_directory() instead of TEMPLATEPATH/STYLESHEETPATH
  • REQUIRED: Themes are REQUIRED to enqueue comment-reply script via callback, rather than hard-code the enqueue in the HTML document head. Example:
    function oenology_enqueue_comment_reply() {
            if ( is_singular() && comments_open() && get_option( 'thread_comments' ) ) {
                    wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' );
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'oenology_enqueue_comment_reply' );
  • REQUIRED: Themes are REQUIRED to use 'wp_title' filter, to filter wp_title() (RECOMMENDED), or pass argument to wp_title() (OPTIONALLY), in order to modify document title content
  • REQUIRED: Themes are required to prefix all custom variables with theme-slug.
  • REQUIRED: All user facing strings must be translatable
