    Greets:

    I was just reading the post of Ryan's from the custom header thread and just realized that he gave the following link:

    http://svn.automattic.com/wpcom-themes/

    It's the wp.com themes. :)

    Shame most of the themes they are offering are erm, horrid :)

    Also if your thinking of the custom image header code, a lot don't seem to include them.

    But still a handy resource for anyone who offers the same themes.

    Yep, found it already. :)

    Also, on carefully looking at a few of them, they are stripped-dowm version of original ones.

    It does make it easy to grab a bunch that you know will work on your MU install though.

    Which is why i was suggesting it. :)

    And who cares if only a few have custom headers? It's still better than my single theme that has them. :)

    Now, I'm off to practice my evil, pirate laugh.

    I've been poking around my own pile of themes, and there's only maybe half that can easily take advantage of the custom header thingy without the layout looking really stupid.

    Agreed, but for new themes being created, it might be effective.

    Although it brings horrid flashbacks of myspace to mind.

    Agreed but most of the ones that wp.com has with headers, I don't have on my own wpmu install.

    I think we're going to have a theme day shortly. :)

    It appears that Automattic staff built the wp.com avatar system directly into the themes instead of a plugin. I'm getting reports of avatars_by_id function calls in cutline. I haven't had a chance to look at it but it sounds like it to me.

    I'm also sending Donncha an email about why the function calls are different between teh themes with the custom headers. It's still bugging me.

    drmike - which functions? I must admit I've never looked at the custom header code so I can't say why or what is different.

    I'm actually noticing two things on these themes.

    1) The avatar function is avatar_by_id() You'll find it in the Cutline comments.php file. Link to the file stored in SVN. Was giving an error with it in there which is how we discovered it.

    2) The other strangeness I've seen is how the themes do the Custom header images. For example:

    In cutline, the admin page is called via:

    add_custom_image_header('', 'cutline_admin_header_style');

    In Connections, it's the following:

    add_custom_image_header('header_style', 'connections_admin_header_style');

    I was wondering about that as well because I'm at a lost. If I remove the header_style bit, it still calls the function. I'm getting the error mentioned in ticket 243 although in a different location.

    Thanks,
    -drmike

    Thanks for this drmike! I've put the themes up on my MU site.

    1) The calls to the avatar_by_id function is actually in every single comments.php file. Its causing an error and stopping any comments from being displayed.

    I got round this by putting an empty avatar_by_id function in my wp-config.php file.

    2)
    add_custom_image_header('header_style', connections_admin_header_style');

    the 'header_style' bit is a callback filter added to wp_head. In cutline, it is missing as the image is not defined in CSS, but defined via an IMG tag. Thus, no callback filter is needed in wp_head, just a call to retrieve the option value within the template itself.

    Hope this is helpful!

    1) Didn't think of that. Easy that way.

    2) thanks. Was wondering about that.

    Greets:

    I just noticed that they removed the Default theme from SVN. Did anyone happen to grab that? I would love a copy of it. :)

    Thanks,

    Can these themes be downloaded using SVN? If so, can someone please let me know the easiest way to do it on a Windows box?

    Cheers - Stuart

    ha ha - thanks drmike. I was hoping you wouldn't say that. I just noticed that the URL started with "svn". I guess a download manager may help...

    I'm not setup to use SVN myself so that's why I suggested my method. Save into a directory, zip it up and upload it`.

    Nope, still poking at that site hoping it would show up. If you can zip it up, I'd love to have a copy.

    right-click, save as. There's some svn files that got stuck in there. Ooops.

    Got it. Thanks.

    That one was the tricky one IIRC. Staff said it was the curved top of the header image that caused an issue.

    Yea, for some reason it got removed from SVN. At least the web view of it.

    Andrea, I don't think this is the version with the image uploader. I haven't tried it yet but I don't see the code within it.

    This will get you the last seen instance of the default theme:

    svn export -r203 http://svn.automattic.com/wpcom-themes ~/wpcom-themes-r203

    Thanks but you do see that the default theme is no longer in the SVN system, right?

    Or am I missing something? I'm not up on SVN.
