  • I picked out the Neat! Theme (by Topi Peltonen) for my blog. I spent a month developing the blog privately and now I’m ready to move it over to my own domain. But the Theme has since disappeared from the Theme Directory (after only 30 days).

    My question is very simple——can someone please get this theme and put it back in the directory?

    Others have tried to help me piece it together from scraps, but I’m no rocket surgeon. For all the help I’ll need, wouldn’t it just be easier for somebody to get the theme and put it back into the directory? I can upload new themes all day long from there, so I wouldn’t need any help at all for that.

  • For what it’s worth, I can’t even find “Kubrick” in the Theme Directory. One might think that you simply type in the name and up pops the theme with that name.

    Am I missing something really obvious here, like a button that says “enter the name of the theme you’d like to find and then click here”?

    All the themes can be found here:

    Note that these are probably somewhat customized for, but should (usually) work without any major modifications on a self-hosted WordPress blog as well.


    I did a checkout for him and uploaded a copy to my site but he seems to be having problems. More in this thread.

    Thanks for your response. Would it be possible for you to load Neat! into the normal Themes Directory?

    I know it’s in there somewhere because I can find it from my free blog if I search themes. From my “Manage Themes” page, I searched under “Custom header (26)” and Neat! shows up as the ninth option. Of course, clicking on that option only selects it at the WordPress server, and does nothing to download it to my hard drive so that I can upload it to my hosts’ server.

    Do YOU know a way to get that theme on the searchable theme directory for DOWNLOADING?

    Please say yes! If only the answer were yes, Id be all finished in two minutes!

    I’m not the author of the theme, so I can’t really put it in the themes directory.

    Getting it working on a self-hosted site should be simple. Here’s how:

    1. Download every file listed here:

    2. Create a directory in your /wp-content/themes directory called “neat”.

    3. Put all those files in that directory.

    I just tested it locally, it works fine for me.

    It works fine for me as well. Initially I thought it was something awry with the upload but I tested it both locally and on my live site with no troubles so I’m not sure what the problem is.
