    shadow: In my opinion, the WRC is much more than just a theme list. Keep up the good work and your effort is much appreciated!

    As a noob, I agree with fuzzy_logic. WRC was a great find. I agree with someone's comment regarding the Codex being more difficult to navigate and, at least for me, a little frustrating. But, I found WRC in the codex listing and value it (that is, maxmanc's work) as a resource. (Just to note, I have been searching for themes to use for two new blogging experiments.) The least useful to me has been the long lists of themes I have found on some of the sites listed above. Clicking on over 200 links is not my idea of fun, nor do I find it particuarly productive. Blogging Pro's use of thumbnails was better.

    @shadow - I'm apologize since it's clear my e-mail reply to you wasn't properly understood.

    I could send you the code for the theme browser right now and it would be completely worthless to you. You con't have the back-end site infrastructure to use the code.

    I've gotten several e-mails from people wondering why I'm "not willing to share" - and based on the posts I've seen from you I now understand why. I'd appreciate it if you'd choose your words more carefully, unless you are trying to paint me in a negative light.

    @ Alex

    I have absolutely no desire to paint you in a bad light Alex.

    I asked you by email if you were able to share your theme browser with me and you sent me a reply saying no. End of story as far as I was concerned. The only mention I have made of it is trying to get other people to come up with something similar, both on this thread and on the WRC itself. To quote...

    I asked Alex King if he would like to share his theme browser with me so that people could have an easy way to view the themes but he declined. If you would like to help make something in this area it would be much appreciated.

    I have emailed Mr King asking for his assistance but unfortunately, he is unable to share his browser with us, so unless someone else with better coding skills than us is willing to help us out, the themes will have to stay as they are.

    If you think those words are negative then I apologise. I had people commenting on this in the WRC in a negative light and I responded with...

    I have no idea to be honest but I have no desire to pursue the matter with him. I made a request and he replied with:-
    Unfortunately, it’s tied to other data in my backend systems - not easily portable.

    That is his right and the end of the matter as far as I am concerned.
    I just hope someone out there is willing to lend a hand. This list is for the WordPress community and if I can make it better, then I will do so.


    To be honest I think this whole exercise has become a bit too hard to worry about and no matter what I try to do it seems to upset someone.

    And people say this is a community? I have other words for it.

    Now you know how I feel. Unfortunately, there will always be more negative-voiced individuals in this world, and that is a fact. But, I for one, am tired of it.

    I understand - (like you I'm sure) I've got plenty on my plate without taking the time to worry about crap like this, and I just don't want to waste my time replying to these e-mails. I guess some people (*not* you - to be clear) just look to stir up trouble.
