#29777 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Theme folder name on Theme Info view in admin

There have been numerous times where I have wanted to know the theme folder name when troubleshooting or developing a theme.

The theme info view in the admin only has the theme name, which isn't very helpful in understanding which theme is which on bigger multi-site installations (or even local development environments with many themes).

It would be great if the url were displayed somewhere on that view. See attached annotated screengrab.

Hi Toby, thank you for your suggestion!

The theme modal is primarily meant for users to learn more about a specific theme they have installed. It's not necessarily a place where developer-oriented information should be displayed. There are plugins like Debug Bar et al. for that.

If you find yourself in the situation again where you need to find out the slug for a specific theme, don't look any further than the URL of your site. As you can see in your screen shot, the slug of the current theme (twentyfourteen-child in your case) is displayed there as the value to the theme key.
