    initial v1  
    22> @karmatosed After I commented, actually, I also had pangs of guilt for suggesting that the functionality be added to the theme as opposed to a plugin. So yeah, +1 on going the feature plugin route. I just wish there was a way to have the plugin auto-install and activate with the activation of Twenty Seventeen, but alas we don't have dependency mechanism yet. I don't suppose the feature plugin should be bundled with core either like Akismet. Should there be a prompt somewhere for users to install the plugin?

    4 Hello, I'm jumping into the discussion to add a quick comment about the plugin dependencies : theme authors like me are encouraged by the Theme Review admins to use the TGM Plugin Activation.
     4Hello, I'm jumping into the discussion to add a quick comment about the plugin dependencies : theme authors like me are encouraged by the Theme Review admins to use the TGM Plugin Activation. This is a simple php class to add and instantiate in the theme. It offers a non intrusive way to recommend plugins in the admin.
