    Will all themes made for 1.5 work with 2.0? Is there anything special that needs to be done for the pictures to appear in the wp-admin/presentation section? Sorry, I wish something explaining this stuff would be added to the codex.

    To make a “thumbnail” graphic: take a screenshot of your in-place blog. Open the screenshot in your graphics editor. Resize to appx 300 x 225 px, and save as “theme-name.png”. Load into the /wp-content/themes/”theme-name” folder.

    Most themes will work just fine in 2.0. Some that have a bunch of unusual backend stuff will probably not work.

    Alright. I’ll have to test my theme on it soon. Thanks.

    Umm, hey. I have another quick questions here – how do you strikeout text? 😀

    You mean if editing a previous post? Use <strike></strike> around it perhaps? Truthfully, I’ve never used it, so I couldn’t actually state categorically….

    loading my longtime-using giraffe theme doesn’t even show up in the presentation screen

    Pickiness alert:
    <strike> should not be used.
    Use CSS (hint: text-decoration) instead.

    Also, I’ve found inserting an image called “screenshot.jpg” into the theme folder will cause a thumbnail to show up in the admin panel. It can be a png too, not sure about gif.

    I’ve discovered that if you download the theme’s large image from the WordPress Theme Viewer, you can resize it perfectly to 300 x 225!

    I’ve documented the steps I used here.
