Rollover Themes List
Great, But How About a Tiny Thumbnail (4 posts)

    This is great for sites with lots of themes of various types (thus the value of tagging). However, our test users said they really miss being able to see a preview of each theme in the list (without having to mouseover). Of course I know that it's not feasible to load the full-size previews of each theme, even though they are relatively small. Is there any way to include a tiny thumbnail in the listing table?

    Ay there's the rub. Loading each screenshot was part of the bandwidth I wanted to save in the first place. But bandwidth is cheap, aesthetics are priceless.

    Replace the following line about line 325:

    //echo '<td><a class="' . $thickbox_class . '" href="' . $preview_link .'" title="' . $preview_text . '" ' . $mouseover . '>"' . $title .'"</a></td>';
    echo '<td><a class="' . $thickbox_class . '" href="' . $preview_link .'" title="' . $preview_text . '" ' . $mouseover . '>"' . $title .'"<br /><img  class="alignleft" src="' . $theme_root_uri . '/' . $stylesheet . '/' . $screenshot.'" height="60" /></a></td>';

    Yep, that is definitely the rub! Hopefully this will be a good happy medium.

    Thanks for the quick response and the great plugin! The tag filter function is especially useful for sites with many themes.

    Thanks again!
