I don’t know what you mean. Plus I think we are reluctant to change the default theme at all before 1.3.
The page.php file for the default theme is missing
So theme reviewers are rejecting BP child themes because they test a page and the comments are not showing. I’m not sure why now after months they have decided to reject any new themes due to this but it’s happening to themes already in the repo that i’m trying to fix.
Isn’t the simple answer to copy across page.php fix up and submit? they are testing the child theme after all, it will perform as expected then, it may defeat the purpose of a child theme but fixes the issue from your perspective?
I’ve just put this into trunk. Thank you for the heads-up.
Darn it I could have added that ages ago is this really the first time it’s been noticed
I posted about it awhile back This happened on another theme and I added the page.php file but it should be in the default. I forgot about the issue until I just updated a child theme and they rejected again. The last time it happened it took 6 weeks to get the theme finally approved. I guess they were backed up reviewing themes. I may stop using the repo. It takes too long to fix minor things. Why do they have to review themes but not plugins? Never understood this.
Themes more obviously break things, they are for more obvious if they perform badly, and reflect that much more on WP as a whole would be my guess. I’ve always been of the opinion that they really ought to be vetting plugins as a badly written plugin could have far more serious consequences it would be nice to see a two tier repository where there were approved /recommended /tested plugins and a second general pool but it’s probably a lot of work.
It had crossed my mind to mention the lack of comment tag in pages but sort of thought that it might have been for a reason and that I’d be pointing out the obvious.
