Hi, my WordPress theme just got hard rejected and it was surprising, because there were no PHP errors/warning whatsoever or design leaks.
So, I came in here and start reading others questions about hard rejected products and someone recommended useful website: validator.w3.org
I test my site there and it showed few errors/warning here and there. Mostly ID duplications, Section lacks heading warning(s), frameborder attribute (google map), missed closing tag and things like that.
Is that possible to get hard rejected because of those errors/warning?
I imported dummy data from WordPress.org to get bunch of different posts so I can test all the edge cases etc.
I tested that blog page also on validator.w3.org site and it showed errors which is not exactly errors in my end but on WordPress functions. For example, get_the_date function causes a lot of errors. All errors were the same: "Bad value for attribute datetime on element time"
And the very same page showed errors which is caused by comments_popup_link WordPress function. The error is “The itemprop attribute was specified, but the element is not a property of any item” – few posts thumbnail causes the same error as well.
So… should I care about those errors?
I’ve fixed pretty much all the “biggest” errors, like closing tag missing or unnecessary tag somewhere etc.
Appreciate every reply, this is my first time I try to upload own item in TF.
