    • Theme rating
    • User theme upload
    • Theme commenting
    • All tagged
    • Download counter
    • Fantastic sorting options
    • Automatic theme snapshotting
    • Live test run

    Thanks to Headzoo, Libertus and MarkJaquith for helping with development.

    This is amazingly cool, thanks so much. It's interesting in a Flikr-like way, how you can see the variation... how everything's so different, yet so many the same in a way!

    I've not been able to get the site to load at all today. Is there some problem? I seriously need to access a huge compilation of themes; I've a client beating on me (so what else is new, yes?)

    It showed up on some rather large blogs yesterday and today. I bet it is getting hammered...

    Thanks a lot for all the kind words - it's been a really huge job, but I am very happy with the result. Actually looking at download statistics, since launch more than 27000 downloads has been made. Fantastic!

    silkjaer -
    any word from shadow on whether those stats are unusual or not?

    i've said this in a bunch of places, but i'll say it here, too: the theme viewer is gorgeous, and amazingly functional. it's everything we could want as a community.

    and assuming that the numbers did really jump, that's quite a testament to how much more functional you've made it.

    I updated the links on the "extend" page to point to the new theme viewer.

    Excellent work. Makes browsing the gallery more comfortable.

    I'll submit some fluid-width templates as soon as I've transformed them to fit WordPress scheme.

    Hi. I have uploaded my theme on http://themes.wordpress.net. Then I registered there. Now I want to update my theme. I wrote here (http://themes.wordpress.net/contact) 2 times, but still no answer.

    How can I update my theme?

    thomas is working hard, he will get to you, but he's got a lot to wade through.

    I would also like to thank Thomas and the gang for an amazing additional benefit to the community. Krivetsky I too had to wait for Thomas to get around to providing access to update (especially as our Guru Manager Theme initially used the database) so showed errors on the "Test Run".

    However I was provided with access and was able to sort out the problem and delighted with the download rate. Be patient and grateful for all the work gone into the Theme site. Without it we would still be sloshing around in the depths of a Google Search :-)

    I love the theme viewer. I have some themes to add. I too, like Krivetsky, tried to contact the webmaster proceeding user registration, but still no reply. But if the webmaster is busy then I am happy to wait my turn ...

    upload them with an ftp-tool to your online /offline space, activate them logged in as an admin, in the admin panel - thats all

    sometimes its needed to create a new folder, only sometimes.

    yourspace.com/wp-content/themes this is the root

    I have uploaded a theme to use on my site, then in the Admin panel under Presentation I chose the new theme from the pull-down menu under Theme Editor. My site is NOT refreshing, however, to use this theme. What's wrong? Is this tied to something going on with WP or am I doing something wrong? This has worked before without an issue. Please help! Thanks.
