Support » Plugin: Theme Check » Found wrong tag — what tag??

  • I am enjoying Theme Check for the first time today. It helped me fix a bunch of problems in my theme. I am trying to debug an interaction between my theme and the GiveWP plugin.

    I get this warning:

    WARNING: Found wrong tag, remove from your style.css header.

    Via Google, I see sometimes the warning actually gives the name of the wrong tag. Why does it not do it in my case? Do I have zillions of wrong tags and so it doesn’t bother to list them all? How do I know where to start? My style.css file is almost 900 lines long and it’s a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack…

    Thanks!

    There is nothing listed there. Is that the only problem?
