Theme development is impossible to keep up with (4 posts)

    Ok, so after spending over a month updating my code to meet the requirements of the WP theme directory, the requirements have changed again! What the heck is going on with WP? Do I need to be a full time theme developer to participate now? WP has become such a moving target I might have to give up.

    Am I alone on this?

    Ok so as a follow-up to my pointless complaint... it's not exactly the problem. The problem is I deleted the comments PHP file because I noticed WP automatically inserts the comments for me anyway. So I'd like to change my complaint: why can't I just use WP's functionality when possible? Why do I need to reproduce that functionality in theme code if I don't want to do anything different?

  3. That would be something to ask the theme guys, alas. Can't really help you here :/

    Not a pointless complaint, IMO, but then again, I don't do themes.

    Thanks, maybe I'll drop them a note and tell them how I feel as a hobbyist.
