Please tell me I'm wrong. I've put together a couple of blogs and really enjoy hunting down the right themes, trying them out, then hacking them, just a little.
So today I find the Theme Directory - after going to Google. Because I didn't know it was called a directory. And when I put it in search,nothing comes up. I can't even get back to that page. Was it a problem, actually naming it or putting a link somewhere in the Codex, or near the forums? And although it's up now, after having disappeared for 6? or 9 months, all the categories, such as how many columns, or colors, are gone.
I see NO categories. Did TPTB decide that going through 1000 themes was the best way to find one? Then I went to Google and find that there are categories by 2 or 3 columns, but only a few. All the rest, who knows? Found this problem has been going on for months: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/226294?replies=2. Wow, the whole system is ruined.
