themes.php on multiple pages (13 posts)

    show themes 18 themes pr. page instead of 100+ on the same page, makes the themes page load way quicker (but requires the user to click click around to find a theme they like). Loading a very long themes list may be extremely annoying if you click themes to change your sidebar widgets etc.

    I saw DrMike has his implementations with just a list of themes (no screenshot) on one page. The screenshot will show up when mouse is over the theme name. I like his solution to the problem.

    actually kingler that was dsader's implementation, and that comes in very handy, yes.

    But I was thinking about using this on a Themes List page on the homepage for prospective bloggers.

    kingler, good for you! I am glad you have a solution which works for you. I'm also glad suleiman found some use for this. I did consider tthe onmouseover solution, but I am not sure hot blond chicks would realize they need to hover over themes to preview them. But hey, whatever rocks your boat.

    I simply chopped from usertheme plugin at wpmudev.org(http://wpmudevorg.wordpress.com/profile/samsonasu/)

    I've added a couple columns for description and author link as well.

    I can post the one gigantic cut'n paste here if you all like.

    Made a comment. Maybe we can get Donncha to add this in. Most wp blogs only usually have a couple of themes in their install. Most WPMu installs have tons of them and, since theme designers like their 250kb *.png screenshots...

    I followed the whole tutorial on http://mu-plugins.livelyblog.com/Themes.php-hack
    but it didnt work, could you paste your whole themes.php code on that site or here? Or e-mail it to me @ stuart.loxton@googlemail.com

    Much appreciated!

    @drmike: can you make that file available again? themes.txt... or maybe a recent version of it?
