Theme filter?

We are testing this week with users and many are asking for a theme filter because we offer alot of themes for them to choose from.

I found a few threads here but nothing concrete but seems like several people have shown a need for this. Am I missing seeing the plugin?

    Hiya momsnet,

    I don't know of any solution allowing for a filtering inside the WordPress Multi-site install.

    My general approach is to provide fewer themes that I can manage and keep up to date and have loads of options for user customization over providing hundreds of themes that I haven't had a chance to look at in any detail. This also means there aren't pages of themes for a person to scroll through when creating their site.

    I do use this plugin, which allows me to more easily display all themes on one page:

    It's really nice and has some extra configs in the PHP file.

    Anybody else have a solution they use? Feel free to chime in!

    Could have sworn we were promised this as part of the merging of mu into the regular code base. I seem to recall a few mentions of this. I wonder whatever happened to it. Was one of the reasons why they started requiring themes to have tags in their style.css file.

    3.1 seems to have filters, but apparently just using the WordPress pre-populated filter list. I've been looking for an upgrade-safe way to modify that list.

    I love the Rollover Themes List plugin mentioned above, but it messes with the Apperance menu structure and breaks a caching function we use. :slight_frown:

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
