  • Summary changed from Wordpress find theme name like my theme even the theme is not available to WordPress theme name collision.

Hello, I have a theme name that collides with another theme in the repo. Accidentally I updated my theme because of that and my site was wiped.
Thankfully I have backups, but I think that WordPress should prefix the repo themes to avoid collision.
