We’re launching the new theme directory this week, and it comes with some URLs redirects.
Most importantly, 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//themes/ will be served from the WordPres.org MU going forward, so themes will be just a site on that network.
Trailingslash all request without a query, /themes => /themes/ /themes/tag-filters/ => /themes/ /themes/search.php?q=[term] => /themes/search/[term]/ /themes/[themename]/stats/ => /themes/[themename]/ /themes/[themename]/developer/ => /themes/[themename]/ /themes/about/ => /themes/getting-started/ /themes/contact/ => /themes/getting-started/
We don’t have a specific date/time for the switch yet, but it will be on 2/25 or 2/26.
Posting here to give you a heads up and some time to get it prepared.
