Plugin/Function to check theme author, and display an error message (1 post)

    Hi, everyone!

    I want to create a plugin or function that checks the current theme's author name. If it doesn't match a string of text, it will display an error message on the admin panel saying that it needs to be changed.

    Here is the code I have so far (not much at all, as I was originally writing this as a function in the theme's folder, until I realized that folder would get over-written when the theme updated).

    <?php
    add_action( 'admin_notices', 'custom_error_notice' );
    function custom_error_notice(){
         global $current_screen;
    
    if (!empty($_COOKIE["wptheme" . COOKIEHASH]))
    $theme_name = $_COOKIE["wptheme" . COOKIEHASH];
    else
    $theme_name = get_current_theme();
    $theme = get_theme("$theme_name"); 
    
         if ( $current_screen->parent_base == 'themes' )
              echo "<div class'error'><p>$theme['Author']</p></div>";
    }
    ?>

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Samuel
