Description

After going through the themes pages with Jane, we've found a few points that need a bit of polish. I didn't want to lump them together with #19910, so now we have this ticket.

On Install Themes:

  • Add action links: “Install now”, “Preview”.
  • Move author under theme name.
  • Figure out how to conceptually convey that users will be viewing both the preview and theme details.

On Manage Themes:

  • Make delete link red and less clickable.
  • Move version number to details.
  • Move author under theme name.

In [20411]:

Remove CSS involving unused '.theme-listing' selector. see #20403.

Can we possibly bump up to 300px wide in the list table? Making the screenshots 300x225. With more details hidden seems like it could help it be more of a visual browsing experience. That change was going to be rolled in with multiple screenshots but 99.9% sure that will be punted.

In [20716]:

Fix markup in wp-admin/themes.php. see #20403.

  • Always print opening form tag.
  • Always ensure table content clears to the next line. This prevents table content from bunching next to the 'Available Themes' headline, which occurred when only one theme was active on a multisite install.

#41 @koopersmith

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

In [20730]:

Add 'Install now', 'Preview', and 'Details' links to theme install list items. fixes #20403.

#42 @ocean90

[20730] needs RTL support, see #20626.
