Theme Directory Update 2/5

A very busy week with lots of improvements! These are some previously mentioned TODOs that I was able to scratch off the list:

  • Rewrote the Theme APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways.’s update endpoint to work with WordPress.
  • Made synchronizing theme review results a cron job.
  • Made sure uploaded theme files are always deleted, no matter the outcome.
  • Added navigational links to Upload and Commercial pages (r1211).

Additionally, I removed the Admin approval workflow form the Directory pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party, since this is handled entirely on Themes TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.

I also opened the floor to bug reports from the community. After doing that at last week’s update here with limited success, I added another call for volunteers on make/themes which resulted in 15 tickets so far.

Next week I’ll be working though the tickets, as well as @melchoyce‘s Directory mockups, and @otto42 is still working on theme reviews/ratings.
