WordPress WordPress Theme Development Starting a WordPress Theme Where WordPress Themes Live

I need answer to these two quiz questions.

First one is this: The WordPress "themes" folder lives inside of the ________ folder in the root of the WordPress directory."

And this one: "It is important to _______ the name of your theme folder to prevent conflicts with other theme names."

I'm having a hard time coming up with an answer and the video doesn't make it clear. Thanks.

PS The folder in the first question is "wp-content" because that's the folder that holds your "themes" folder.

Try "namespace" instead of "name space"

Why doesn't It is important to CHANGE the name of your theme... work?

You can find your answers by looking through the WordPress codex. http://codex.wordpress.org/

I agree 100% Anika. This question is very odd. I've tried "change" and "verify," and of course both don't work. What the hell is this question getting at?? Obviously you don't want it to be the same name as another folder in the themes directory, but what word are they looking for here? Stupid question.

It is important to _______ the name of your theme folder to prevent conflicts with other theme names. ...

name space its not working . other words i ve tried : specific . unique

The answer to the first one is wp-content and the answer to the second one is namespace. I don't understand why people are saying the video did not specify because he clearly stated and explained/demonstrated both. Hope this helps.

Hello all! The answer to

important to _______ the name of your theme folder to prevent conflicts with other theme names."

Is "namespace" all one word! That is why everyone above was missing that question. "namespace" works! Go try it.

The first answer was "worth-content".

Please let me know if you liked this/this is the best answer!!

Needs better attention and highlighting in the video/teaching.
