It’s been another active week in the world of WordPress themes. We added new features to the site here at ThemeSorter, a new theme shop went online, WooThemes reached 100 themes and there are several theme giveaways to speak of—not to mention theme previews and all the new theme releases. Nice to be able to get this all on one page, huh?
- We rolled out a bunch of new features earlier this week. These new features include a more informative homepage, custom RSS feeds and e-mail subscriptions, quick links for theme demos/info and similar themes plus design/usability enhancements.
- We’ve tightened our category classifications and added a new Single Page niche.
