One of the toughest things about building products for WordPress is making sure that you exhaustively test every single nuance of your theme.

Aside from things like post, pages, images, and headings, it includes, widgets, menus, non-breaking test, threaded comments, and so on.

At WordCamp Atlanta, Michael Novotny – the guy responsible for running QA at 8BIT – released WP Test arguably the best tests for WordPress.

WordPress Test Data

WP Test

In short, WP Test is a set of exhaustive test data to help evaluate the quality of both your plugins and your themes. It’s the same set of test cases that we use at 8BIT, though the project is maintained by Michael on GitHub.

Ultimately, we’d love to contribute this back to the WordPress Development Community, but are always open to contributions from others. So please be sure to check it out, open some issues, and create some pull requests.

I’d love to see this thing grow to be the definitive set of WordPress test data.

But if you’ve got questions or comments about this project feel free to open an issue or leave ’em in the comments.
