    Are the theme ever ran through a document validator such as or

    I get returned plenty of issues, primarily the overuse of h1 tags and I modify the theme to handle it. I’ve fixed it for the Menus but the Content Slider appears to still be using h1 tags, even though I down graded them to h2’s.

    I have too many plugins, including a minifier, to identify others that are theme specific, but it seems like possibly an easy fix to imrove SEO for your customers.

    Just thought I’d ask. Thanks!


    Hi @krmarshall87,
    We do run our themes via document validators.

    One H1 per page is old. It was only valid for HTML4.

    In HTML5, you can have more then one H1 tag. That was issue only when you use HTML4 tags. In HTML5, H1 tag per article tag is good for SEO and we have carefully designed H1 tags with special attention on header tag and headings

    Full Frame theme is build in HTML5, CSS3 and Responsive design. So, H1 is better for SEO then H2.

    You can also check this Video by Google software engineer Matt Cutts, who clearly states that you can use multiple H1 but don’t over do it. Also use h1 specific to heading and header tags.

    You can also check this article URL

    As for other errors, most of them are accessibility errors. This theme is not accessibility-ready.



    Thanks for the clarification! Every checker I run my page through mentions it, but perhaps I should ignore it.
