Theme asking to update (theme with same name on WordPress.org)
|Reported by:||design_dolphin||Owned by:|
I have a theme with a certain name, but there is a theme with the same name in the WordPress themes directory. So now my theme keeps showing an update message.
- Add unique hash to each uploaded theme in the themes directory. This way even if someone has a home-grown theme which happens to have the same name, but are not going to upload it to the themes directory, there won't be a conflict. (You could change the name of the theme, but who is to say someone won't upload a theme that also has that name.)
- Add more fields to the updater check such as author, and date/ time created. This could mean though that theme authors would always have to add this during theme creation, and know why they are doing this. Possibly adding a extra complicating step in WordPress theme design. Otherwise at some point they or their client could start getting a update message for their theme.
