Theme Browser
« on: August 26, 2006, 12:55:34 am »

It's way too putzy to use the demo on this web site to browse through the themes. Imagine how long it would take to preview every theme, unless I'm missing some kind of shortcut. Has anyone suggested adding a menu of themes at the top header of the Demo page along with prev and next buttons? It would make it much easier to preview them all. See the WordPress theme browser as an example.

Not the same. With a theme browser if something caught your eye you could interactively prevew each type of page before moving on to the next theme.

It looks like the theme browser has been implemented.  Pretty nifty.

Not finished yet, I'm still working on it. But you can already see what I'm up to.

OK, nearly there: There is a previous and next button, the selector displays as well what theme is currently chosen.

Todo:
  • Add links to the threads that discuss the theme submissions and the corresponding downloads
  • Fix the incompabilities with some themes that "mess" with the body style
  • Change the language dropdown to match the look of the theme selector
  • Add an explanation (help icon) to theme and language selector that expands/links to a help section
  • Fix the width issue that causes a smallish horizontal scrollbar

This has been tougher than I first thought. There have been many themes that needed editing. It's time I write a "how to create a custom theme - best practise" guide (well, in the future maybe ;))...

  • Change the language dropdown to match the look of the theme selector
done
