Hello, Theme Designer.
You've put in countless hours building another great theme. You shouldn't have to waste more precious time building a system for showcasing it. Let Theme Designer do all the heavy lifting while you get back to doing what you enjoy — building awesome themes.
Thanks for downloading. Please consider joining the club to support the plugin. We love being able to provide free WordPress plugins, but we must also keep the lights on around here.
Theme Designer is a plugin made for theme authors by a theme author for managing theme portfolios.
Theme Designer integrates fully with the WordPress.org Themes API. That way, you can pull in and store data like download counts, ratings, and more. You can also easily link to WordPress.org pages, such as the support forum or translations section.
Subjects & Features
There are two built-in taxonomies called subjects (hierarchical) and features (flat) that allow you to group your themes. It’s also easy to add new taxonomies if you need even more organization.
Each theme author on your site gets a full theme-based archive page listing their work. This is great if you run a site with multiple theme authors.
You couldn’t build wonderful themes without WordPress’ array of template tags for dropping in your templates. Theme Designer is loaded with template tags for everything so that you can design a unique theme portfolio that fits your site.
After purchasing the plugin, you can get lifetime access to the plugin’s repository on GitHub. If you prefer Git over ZIP files as many designers/developers do, the option is available to you.
When working in the theme (post) editor, you’ll want to be able to quickly output theme data. That’s where the plugin’s theme-specific shortcodes come in handy.
Take a look at the plugin screenshots to get a feel for how it works.
Common questions about the Theme Designer plugin.
Who can use this plugin?
This plugin was built primarily with WordPress theme designers in mind. It’s purpose is to allow them to manage theme collections such as this site’s themes page or even something as large as the WordPress.org theme directory. It was built to scale any size site.
Do I have to pay for updates?
No. Updates are provided for the life of the plugin. As long as the plugin is around, you’ll be able to download newer versions without additional costs.
Do you provide support?
Support is provided on a year-to-year basis. When you purchase the plugin, you automatically get a 1-year developer membership to this site. All support requests are handled via the support forum or our Slack channel.
Does this work with [x theme/plugin]?
Theme Designer was coded using WordPress standards like all my themes and plugins. It should work fine with any plugin that is also coded to standards. With that said, I cannot guarantee that it will work with any third-party code.
