    Hi, is GP WCAG 2.1 compatible?
    Would you recommend a tool for checking how which part(s) of a website would need improvement against that standard?

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    We do our best to keep accessibility in mind with everything we do. We have received and passed various accessibility reviews in the past. However, it’s likely time we get another one to make sure we’re still completely accessible.

    I don’t know of any specific tools, but there are tons out there if you search for “WCAG 2.1 testing tools”.

    Ok, so I tried out Axe and did some preliminary tests. I corrected some issues.

    Among the returned results, there are also the following:

    Document has multiple elements referenced with ARIA with the same id attribute: mobile-menu
    .mobile-header-navigation.has-branding.has-sticky-branding:nth-child(5) > .inside-navigation.grid-container.grid-parent > .main-nav

    Document has multiple elements referenced with ARIA with the same id attribute: primary-menu
    nav:nth-child(7) > .inside-navigation.grid-container.grid-parent > .main-nav

    Document has multiple static elements with the same id attribute
    .mobile-header-navigation.has-branding.has-sticky-branding:nth-child(5) > .inside-navigation.grid-container.grid-parent > .main-nav > .sf-menu.menu > .menu-item-596.menu-item-has-children.menu-item-type-custom > .sub-menu > .menu-item-426.menu-item-has-children.menu-item-type-custom > .sub-menu > .menu-item-226.menu-item-type-post_type.menu-item-object-page

    Does the theme allow to correct them or we should rather wait for subsequent theme updates (will such issues be addressed at all)?

    Hi there,

    I believe we’ve addressed a lot of this in GP Premium 1.11.0. Can you try the beta version?: https://generatepress.com/gp-premium-1-11-0-block-elements/

    Hi Tom, I installed it on my offline test website and I don’t see the originally quoted issues there. Thanks!
