Description

What problem does this address?
Right now, a user has to click on each individual theme to allow auto-update. If the user has multiple themes installed, this can be tedious.

What is your proposed solution?
My proposed solution is to have the option to allow/disallow auto-update for multiple themes on the theme page.

Hi there, thanks for the ticket!

Given that the Site Health screen recommends deleting any inactive themes:

You should consider removing any unused themes to enhance your site’s security.

I'm wondering how common it is in practice to have more than a few themes.

A brand-new installation of WordPress installs (I believe) five themes. Then a user just adds more themes to their website without deleting old themes. I have seen websites with 20 themes. Deleting old themes does not remove the theme data from the database. How secure is it to delete old themes?
