Difference in Themecheck plugin results


I have tested my theme on several servers with WP_DEBUG on and my theme using theme check plugin passed the test. But according to the theme reviewer there are some warnings and required errors.

Why is there any difference in the results? Am i missing something?

The same question mate…

@Monkeysan there must be some difference in the plugin they are using to test the theme. Its not like that the theme check issues they raised were not correct. They sent a screenshot for the errors and warnings and those warnings were related to my theme.

But it would be definitely really nice if they can reveal it to the community so that they can also check for errors before submitting. That would indirectly help them as it will make their review process smoother.

They are using two different plugins, I believe, you’re using “Theme Check”
Download and install “NS Theme Check” plugins. You will see the results it’d be a bit different from each other.

Maybe this helps too:

ThemeCheck plugin is put on github too.
It has a lot of forks you can see here: https://github.com/WordPress/theme-check/network/members

In these forks you will see a particular one, named Envato Theme Check by iKreativ, this fork was recently updated, maybe this is what they are using:



Also, from github, a very helpful tool for development of WordPress plugins/themes is
WordPress Coding Standards for PHP_CodeSniffer:

No matter what the IDE used for development, this is something we should all use. The sniffs are quite frequently updated and kept in line with the latest standard WordPress coding standards which are defined here: https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/best-practices/coding-standards/php/

LATER EDIT: Don’t get me wrong, maybe you already knew all these, I wrote them down for others authors who will read this or for people looking for answers.
