Should this theme do better in this SEO test I ran for W3C compliance? According to a test run from sitebeam.net my site scored poorly and I don’t understand what I can do about it. This was the summary.
The majority (79.5%) of pages are not W3C compliant.
W3C compliance is an international standard for measuring code quality, accessibility and browser compatibility.
I have a detailed report if that is necessary, but I was wondering if this has anything to do with the theme or the version of the theme, I am running v1.4
I’m not familiar with sitebeam but it can most likely be ignored. Your best route for SEO advice and wordpress is Yoast SEO and the information available on his site.
Once upon a time W3C compliance was pretty important but these days it isn’t so much. Web development is moving faster than W3C can standardize and because of that cutting edge themes aren’t fully compliant.
OK – Thank you. On the subject of versions of Flagship I am running v1.4 and I can download v1.5 however I beleive from another post that you now have v2.3? How can I upgrade and what are the improvements?
You can download the most recent version of the theme files from your downloads on Themeforest. If you download the whole package (not just the wordpress files) there is a version.txt file that gives the changelog for each version. The most recent version is 1.5.
