    Hi

    It took me a solid 5 minutes to find your "admin panel (button)" hiding on my theme. I've been using wordpress for a long time and I must say this was the most challenging plugin I've ever had to search for.

    Please, please, please explain in your description how to find your plugin and use it once it's activated.

    thanks
    Nick

    There is no admin panel in Theme Check. You simply go to Appearance->Theme Check and select what theme you want to check.

    Thank you. That is exactly what you need to write in the description. As I was going through the questions here in the forum, I saw that I wasn't the only one who couldn't find it.

    I couldn't agree more. At least place it in your readme.txt file!

    Concurred. A little bit cryptic especially in terms of guessing how it's supposed to function on mulitsite in terms of an admin interface.

    It isn't any different on a multisite setup than any other setup.

    And this isn't a plugin you're supposed to use on a live site. This is a developer's tool. You use it on a development site. Where you write code and test it and such.

    I don't see how looking under the Appearance menu and finding the Theme Check screen is all that confusing or badly documented. If it took you longer than a few minutes to find that menu item, then you probably are not the target audience for this plugin in the first place.

    Theme Check is meant for Theme Developers, to help them make better themes. If you're not making a theme, then you do not need this plugin.

    How the heck do I unsubscribe from this thread. The email said log in and scroll to the top and click on unsubscribe but there is no unsubscribe button or link I can find.

    nicolasfox: On this page, in the right hand sidebar, there is an "About this Topic" area.

    Below that, about five items, is a link that either reads "Subscribe to Topic" or "Unsubscribe from Topic". It's like a toggle. Just click that link to subscribe or unsubscribe from any topic on the forums.
