Potential WordPress File Structure Improvement (3 posts)

    The current WordPress file structure is poorly constructed. You have some 23 files and 3 folders in the root folder. But the only relevant files to a designer/developer are in the themes folder. You have to drill down 3 levels to get there.

    Ideally, WordPress would be organized like this:

    wordpress
    /index.php
    /wp-system (or something like that)
    /classic
    /default
    /mytheme

    That way, the theme folders are immediately accessible, and the hierarchy of the file structure represents the usefulness and relevance of the files to the user.

    Just my two cents. Thanks for reading!

    The other user-useful directory would be plugins.

    I agree that this would create a smaller barrier to entry for those wanting to learn WP.

    Really? I mean, in reality? If you work locally, just create a symlink to the /wp-content directory and place it in your home directory ( a shortcut, if you use windows for a development platform ) otherwise just set your ftp client to open at /wp-content and both directories are immediately accessible.
