WordPress Extend the Theme

Recently due to redesign my blog theme, i almost visit wordpress site daily for the plugins area , even i found some plugin through Google, i will try to search it in the plugins area , so that for future upgrade , i can just make use the wordpress backend one button upgrade.

One question that pop up when i visit the plugins area, why is it there are no similiar extend area for theme ? if there is extend theme area that having same feature like plugins area, the user can get notification once the theme release the new version.

The news is here when i think about this issue and under the extend i saw the theme directory , related to this an idea pop in my mind, can the theme directory work in the direction that make use of the 2.6 feature – Post Revision , where you can compare the new version theme and your current use theme different ? so in future once you get notify your current theme is release new version, you check the diff apply it to the new theme and use it.

wah ! that will be super easy for theme upgrade, currently working on theme upgrade is really troublesome. Anyway welcome the new theme directory and i wonder will there be a premium theme directory soon ?


Share it with your friends, thanks !

  • Finally it is up, I used to browse the directory for themes but now I am creating my own. I doubt there would be any premium themes though for every uploaded theme has to be GPL Compatible. And if memory serves me right, Matt was very much against premium themes that he stripped all of it in the theme directory in the past.

    hmmmm interesting, i remember small potato seem like mention something againts the theme directory before, but can’t really recall is about what.

  • It’s great to have the theme directory back up but the last directory didn’t have the BEST looking themes. I had to look elsewhere when I was looking for better themes and those tend to be sponsored themes, which they won’t allow on the theme directory. I think sites like New WordPress Themes dot net will still provide a good service of weeding out the great themes and sharing them with the community of .org users.
