Hi everyone As most of you are aware…

Hi everyone!

As most of you are aware, we’ve been pushing to get more of WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ localised, such as the Theme directory and 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 WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party directory.

Today I’ve enabled localised Theme Directories for all rosetta sites, all sites now have the themes directory available at /themes/, for example: https://ro.wordpress.org/themes/

A few important things to note about this setup:

  • The headerHeader The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes. menu is inherited from the main site (it’s cached for up to 1hr).
  • A ‘Themes’ and ‘Plugins’ page have been created on your blog as placeholders for the site, to ease adding these both to the Menu. The title of these pages has been defaulted to __('Themes') so hopefully it’s translated correctly already for you, but update it if need be.
  • The slug ‘themes’ in the URLURL A specific web address of a website or web page on the Internet, such as a website’s URL www.wordpress.org cannot be modified at this time, that may change in the future though.
  • The Themes Directory interface itself can be translated, you can do so via https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/meta/themes and request a deploy the same you would do all other rosetta translations.
  • The Themes Description & Title is not yet translated, that’s coming a little later.
  • You won’t have access to the wp-admin part of the blog, that’s expected.

A Quick word on the Plugins Directory:

  • The Plugins directory is also available at /plugins/
  • Still being tested, feel free to join in the testing!
  • It can be translated at https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/meta/plugins
  • https://ro.wordpress.org/plugins/ is a good example of it in action

If you spot any bugs, please either report it here, or on meta.trac under the Theme Directory component (or the Plugins Directory component).
