Theme Folders


Did you ever struggle with to many themes in your WordPress installation? I had enough of the messy theme page on WordPress Backend. As developer I need sometimes a ranking for themes. So I decided, there have to be a way to label themes or assign a category in this case a folder to them.

That is why I was writing a code to folder WordPress themes.
Load different groups of themes into the wp-content. Go to the Admin Page under Appearance -> Theme Folders and give the names of the different folders. Now you have folder view of different theme groups.

Then you can preview themes from certain categories or delete them.


  • Backend


  1. Upload ‘theme-folders’ folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘plugins’ menu in WordPress.

Good Idea, Poor Design

The interface is too simplistic and there are not enough instructions. Would be nice t have tool tips to explain what the different buttons do. I wasn’t able to add new folders and most pics in the folders already there were only broken image icons.
