All Advertised Locations in Theme Creation

In WordPress Theme Feature Requirements, under Core Features, the requirement: Themes must be widget-ready in all advertised locations

What do all advertised locations mean exactly?

Does that mean widget for advertising is required exclusively?
(note: I have contacted Support twice and both times without response; later I found out that they hardly respond to complains/questions due to they having their hands full (strange, because that beats the purpose of having a Contact Support for the most part).

Hope you can help answer. Thanks in advance.


no, that not mean widget for advertising is required exclusively. widget-ready in all advertised locations mean all widget area in your theme used as like: sidebar area, footer area and if your theme used header area widget. For more information you can spend some times in google to study on this.

Hi mgscoder,

Thank you for the prompt response and clear explanation. I know how to add widgets, but the advertised location confused me. Unsure why they added /advertised location/…

Anyway, as you have answered, kindly close this thread (if you can).
