Uploading Of Plugins and Themes Directly From Admin Panel And Unzipping
i am a great lover of wordpress plugins and now and then i search and look for more plugins to customize my site and the really things bugs me is that i have to log in to my hosting sites panel and upload the plugin and then unzip it, it would be nic eif there is a way directly to upload themes and wordpress plugin from admin panel
If that were the case, there'd have to be a central repository. We have this for plugins. Not all plugins are available through this though. I don't upload my plugins there, for example.
Themes: now that's a whole different beast. The problem here is many theme authors don't want to license their themes with GPL. WordPress, and Matt has stated this, will get the theme repository back online at some point, but all themes on there must be GPL.
So, I don't see this as being a likely feature for themes anytime soon, at least not good themes. Maybe plugins though.
I believe Matt talks about the GPL thing with the themes repository in this interview:
Plugins as of 2.7, Themes as of 2.8.
