Rules for posting a child theme « Community

Welcome, guest!

Feel free to read the blog, browse for themes, or join the club.

The community forums are currently being phased out. At the end of February or early March 2012, you will no longer be able to post here. This is because the entire site is being restructured. Please use the main forums for discussions.

Rules for posting a child theme

  1. This forum is for posting your custom child themes.

    I'm just going to lay out a few guidelines for everyone to follow.

    • You must host the file on your own site. You can't upload it here.
    • Place a link to the file in the thread.
    • Write a thread title that is clear and concise. Something like Child Theme Name: Parent Theme Name is preferrable.
    • Package your child theme in a .zip or .tar file. Most people can open these.
    • Make sure it works.
    • If you post malicious code or other inappropriate content, you will be banned from this site.
    • Include a GPL-compatible license (you can even copy license.txt from the parent theme): — http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/license-list.html#GPLCompatibleLicenses
    • Your theme must be 100% GPL licensed (or compatible). This includes (but is not limited to) CSS, JavaScript, images, and HTML.

    Some other things you should consider

    I won't be checking every line of code for people's themes, but making your theme works in the major browsers is something most people will appreciate.

    Validate your XHTML and CSS:

    WordPress theme development checklist (most of this stuff is handled by the parent theme and you shouldn't worry):

    Other than those things, have fun and share!
