Theme-Check Plugin Verifies your WordPress Theme

WordPress is the only blog script with plenty of themes, which can be used to change the look and feel of your blog. Normally, you will be able to download them directly from the themes directory, which will follow latest WordPress standards and practices.

However, themes offered by third party companies and developers may not be fully compatible with the latest standards. It is essential to make use of a theme which follows all the rules. It will be a tedious job to manually verify coding structure of a theme. Hence, you should make use of a tool such as a plugin which can verify the accuracy of a theme.

Theme-Check is a free WordPress plugin with which you will be able to test your theme to make sure that it follows all the latest standards and practices. The official WordPress site lists the details of theme review standards and this plugin automatically verifies the theme with those standards.

Theme-Check plugin can be directly installed from the WordPress dashboard. As soon as you complete the installation process, you will find an option named Theme Check under Appearance navigation panel.


The plugin displays list of all the available WordPress themes as you can see in the above figure. In order to verify the theme for accuracy, you need to select Check it button and you will be able to view the detailed report as shown below

Theme-Check requires you to enable WP_DEBUG in the wp-config.php file. However, I noticed that this step is not necessary as the plugin displays the results without enabling the option.

The result will be displayed as shown below


As you can see, Theme-Check plugin automatically verifies your WordPress theme to ensure compatibility with latest standards and practices.
