Help WordPress – Review a WordPress Theme

Alex King is looking for volunteers to help test and review WordPress Themes.

I’ve got a whole bunch of WordPress themes (some new, some updates) people have sent me that need to be code reviewed and tested so they can be added to my list. Anyone want to volunteer to help?


1. Good knowledge of PHP – can spot extraneous, dangerous or potentially broken code and fix it.
2. Good knowledge of WordPress – can test basic functionality to make sure everything works as expected.

I don’t have much to offer, but I’ll happily add a “thank you? link to volunteers on the themes page.

I’ve spent long hours reviewing and inspecting hundreds of themes and it does honestly take about 10 to 20 minutes at most to give a good go over of a WordPress Theme. WordPress Themes play a huge roll in the success of WordPress, and people work very hard on their Themes, so we need people to review these desperately.

Basically, the WordPress Themes need a quick go over to check the code, layout, and functions. Part of what is also needed is a description of the Theme for the WordPress Theme List that includes some basic keywords that can be searched by users looking for a specific style and layout. So these efforts can be combined. Check a Theme over and then find the Theme in the list and add some keywords in the Codex.

You can find a list of the themes that need reviews on King’s site. So please, help the WordPress Community with a little bit of your time and words.
