$args

(array) (Optional) Data used to describe the theme.

  • 'type'
    (string) The type of data associated with this feature. Valid values are 'string', 'boolean', 'integer', 'number', 'array', and 'object'. Defaults to 'boolean'.
  • 'variadic'
    (boolean) Does this feature utilize the variadic support of add_theme_support(), or are all arguments specified as the second parameter. Must be used with the "array" type.

    (string) A short description of the feature. Included in the Themes REST API schema. Intended for developers.
