Building Quality WordPress Themes – Theme Unit Test

A while ago I wrote about error logging in WordPress. Today we’re going to look further at testing your theme by using the WordPress Theme Unit Test.

The Theme Unit Test is really just a sample data file to download with a bunch of things for you to check on your theme. I just have a local test environment that has the data in it and every client theme gets put into the environment near the end of the production cycle for a test. I’ve found that the amount of ‘tweaks’ that a theme needs is much lower if you run it through this since it catches lots of little misses before you’re client even has a chance to use it.

This test is just something else you should be doing to ensure that you provide quality theme building services to your clients so don’t think that you’re done testing because the theme passes this one item.
