    Hi,

    I would like to use the ‘Intergalactic 2’ theme but when I search the themes for it on wordpress.org it is not listed. Ive tried on the worpress.org website and from my project’s theme browser. Only the original ‘Intergalactic’ theme is listed.

    [edit: btw it is listed on wordpress.com, but I dont know how to install to my wordpress.org project from there]

    Thanks for any help.

    @numberland – You’ll find the Intergalactic 2 theme available for download near the bottom of the page here:

    https://wordpress.com/theme/intergalactic-2

    Click the “Download” button next to “This theme is available for download to be used on your WordPress self-hosted installation.”

    Ah, I see now I can just download and unzip that to my themes folder.
    Great, much appreciated!

    You’re welcome!

    Still, the question remains, why are neither Intergalactic or Intergalactic-2 not showing up in the Theme search on self-hosted WordPress? How many people can really know where to find these?

    @cogdog – Intergalactic doesn’t come up in search because the theme hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. The WordPress.org theme directory does not display themes in search that have not had updates in the last 2 years.

    I added a sticky post here to point people to Intergalactic 2, if they find their way there: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/intergalactic-2-a-refreshed-version-of-intergalactic/ It also explains why we haven’t submitted Intergalactic 2 here; it would disrupt existing users if they were to update to it, but it’s too close to the original to submit as a new theme.

    Thanks, somehow I missed that themes roll off after two years. I guess the only way to find old themes is via Google search.

    I use Intergalactic parent for a child theme I designed that turns WordPress into a sort of web-based slide presenter

    I’ve found it holds up well. I’m not too sure all the new features matter as it’s not used for blogging. Since 1.3.2 is not being updated, I might just roll into a single theme.

    Thanks.
