Theme Check
Which tags is WARNING: The flexible-width and fixed-width tags... talking about? (3 posts)

    I'm modifying the bones theme (https://github.com/eddiemachado/bones), but when I run it through Theme-Check, I get the following warning -

    WARNING: The flexible-width and fixed-width tags changed to fluid-layout and fixed-layout tags in WordPress 3.8. Additionally, the responsive-layout tag was added. Please change to using one of the new tags.

    Okay, is this referring to CSS tags in general, or new WordPress tags? If the latter, where can I find more information? I tried searching and came up short.

    In this file:


    Tags: flexible-width, translation-ready, microformats, rtl-language-support

    The "flexible-width" tag is no longer valid, and should be changed to "fluid-layout". That's what the message is telling you.

    How could I change the message to be more clear?

    I agree that it was ”hard” to find. I didn't see anything about this in the Codex at first or at the Theme Review Guidelines (needs to be updated here and there. I follow the discussions at the Trac and the mailingslists).

    For others just stumble upon this thread, the info about this is:
