Themes API not returning compatibility data

Reported by: afragen Owned by: dd32
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: API Keywords: dev-feedback


In order for PHP compatibility testing to function with the themes, the Themes API must be able to return the compatibility headers in the readme.txt file just as the Plugins API does.

https://api.wordpress.org/plugins/info/1.2/?action=plugin_information&request[slug]=wordpress-beta-tester returns data for requires and requires_php.

https://api.wordpress.org/themes/info/1.2/?action=theme_information&request[slug]=twentytwenty simply returns false for requires and requires_php. These data are set, along with tested in the theme's readme.txt file.

These data are necessary for #49334, testing compatibility of themes to install.

I thought these fields got moved to the style.css file.

I think you are correct, did but the API isn't picking them up in any event.

#3 @Otto42

The themes uploader is still only parsing the readme.txt files, not looking at the style.css for those two headers.

I don't know if the change has yet been made to core to pull from the style.css yet, but if so, then a similar modification would need to be made to the uploader code:

[9588] should do the job for future uploaded themes.

As a once-off, I've filled the data in for the twentytwenty theme: https://api.wordpress.org/themes/info/1.2/?action=theme_information&request[slug]=twentytwenty
