#42046 new defect (bug)

Customize Themes: Clarify active and previewed themes

Reported by: celloexpressions Owned by:
Milestone: 4.9.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: trunk
Component: Customize Keywords: needs-patch has-screenshots
Focuses: ui Cc:


The current active (live) theme is displayed first in the installed themes list, but not necessarily with anything indicating that it's active. The current previewed theme (in the current customize session) gets different styling and a "Previewed:" prefix on its name in the installed themes view.

Let's clarify which theme is being previewed and whether it's active by highlighting it in the sidebar.

Follow-up to #37661.

  • Type changed from enhancement to defect (bug)

Changing this to a defect because it is kind of a regression — the pre-4.9 live preview for themes does say which theme you're currently previewing.
