Theme Check Refuse All Shortcode #84
Just Info, I update a theme to wp.org and the result:
I remove shortcodes.php from HC and it's accepted.
So we no longer able to add any shortcode in theme (even for non-content shortcodes).
I'd like to remove them all. Theme Check shouldn't be blocking all shortcodes though.
I'll see if I can get in touch with the TRT about this because this is not something that the team has agreed to do. Right now, Slack is once again down for me and we no longer have the mailing list. It's kind of tough to communicate.
We discussed this for a moment in #themereview on Slack. The tentative decision is to ban all shortcodes, which I'm supportive of. However, there will be time for discussion on this on the Make Themes blog.
As of right now, my plan is to remove all remaining shortcodes regardless of the final decision.
