Hi everyone, I am asking questions here because I haven't gotten any
response on my ticket and it is mentioned in the ticket to ask on the
theme reviewer's list.

(1) So my first question isn't a problem but... why are we required to
include a comments.php file?  I removed my comments.php file for
simplicity after I learned that WordPress automatically inserts the
comment code when there isn't one.  It seemed better to default to WP's
default functionality.  But when I tried to upload, it was automatically

(2) I'm in some general confusion about the other errors...
=> Undefined variable: text_domain in \themes\dragonskin\functions.php
on line 11
=> Undefined variable: text_domain in \themes\dragonskin\functions.php
on line 12

This code is straight from the WordPress documentation on:

=> Undefined property: stdClass::$user_url in
\themes\dragonskin\single.php on line 34

It is defined here (and works):

The rest seem like errors generated resultant from previous issues.

=> Undefined index: action in \themes\dragonskin\functions.php on line 97
=> Undefined index: action in \themes\dragonskin\functions.php on line 108
=> Undefined index: saved in \themes\dragonskin\functions.php on line 127
=> Undefined index: reset in \themes\dragonskin\functions.php on line 128

=> Undefined index: sidebar-1 in
C:\xampp\htdocs\wp\wp-includes\widgets.php on line 954
=> Undefined index: top-menu in
C:\xampp\htdocs\wp\wp-includes\widgets.php on line 954

But I followed the directions on the WordPress Codex, I believe.  Also,
it is an unclear error that is generated from WP's widgets.php file and
therefore harder for me to understand what the problem is.

Please tell me what you think is going on here, or what I should try to
do next.  My plan is to use the theme development plugin to see if I
can't figure this out, but it's very hard for me if some stuff in the
Codex is missing.  I mean... is this a case where the Codex isn't up to
