The Theme Check plugin is a plugin I created for the Theme Review Team at WordPress.org.

Basically, it scans a theme, and tries to find any issues with the code that may cause issues for people trying to use the theme.

Now, this is kind of difficult, and Theme Check doesn’t attempt to run the code in any way. All it’s doing is some bare simplistic scans for various strings, really. It’s mainly useful as a tool to help you determine if you forgot anything in the theme, or if you’re making some kind of obvious mistake.

The Theme Check plugin uses the guidelines from the Theme Review Team. It does not determine what those guidelines are. If the guidelines change, Theme Check is updated accordingly.
