WordPress > Theme Directory

Bringing the new theme directory under the WordPress “extend” umbrella allowed us to take advantage of all the infrastructure that has already been built up to support WordPress.org. If you’ve browsed through the plugin directory, you’ll feel right at home in the new theme directory.

WordPress Theme Directory.

Since announcing this last night we’ve had a lot of new theme submissions. So far the responses I’ve seen have been very positive and excited about having a new central home for WordPress themes.


  1. Just wanted to say thank you, and well done; I think you’ve done a superb job on this.

  2. Good job, worth the wait.

    By the way, shouldn’t http://themes.wordpress.net/ now redirect to the new site?

  3. @Josh -

    We’re leaving that up for now for those who still want/need access to those files.

    UPDATE: http://themes.wordpress.net/ is now redirecting to http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/

  4. Joseph, are these themes available for download via Subversion, or is that coming in a future release?

  5. @Richard -

    There is a back end Subversion repository for the themes, but currently we’re focusing on providing the themes as zip files.

  6. Thanks, Joseph. I look forward to when the themes are also available by Subversion.
