    Keith,
    The My Starcraft 2 theme links appear to be screwed up.

    The thumbnails make a mighty nice addition. I’m impressed.

  2. Keith Dsouza (82 comments.) says:

    Well Ronald, all the links lead to the same location so I added it such :)

  3. Ronald Huereca (39 comments.) says:

    Keith,
    I stand corrected :)

  4. Trevor (2 comments.) says:

    I absolutely LOVE this new post format. Much better than the old! Thank you!

  5. April (3 comments.) says:

    Keep this up, it looks great. Nice way to post up the new themes and plugins. The screenshots make it easier for me to browse without going to a lot of sites to get a preview.

  6. Jeffro2pt0 (164 comments.) says:

    Awesome work Keith, you are the man! Thumbnails and release pages. What more could a fan want? Woops, I shouldn’t ask that question because people will answer it :P

  7. ...paul (2 comments.) says:

    I thought the last post of latest themes was good, a big improvement on the older method. But, with the addition of screenshots and links to the release page, it’s now even better. Great stuff! And many thanks.

  8. BlaKKJaKK (10 comments.) says:

    Coolness has been achieved. The thumbnails just took it over the top. I particularly like the results of the validation listed. Saves a lot of time. Thankx.

  9. jez (56 comments.) says:

    love the thumbnails!

  10. pipit (1 comments.) says:

    Excusme, but the greentech’s download link point to techicon.zip.
    It should point to here

  11. Haris (7 comments.) says:

    This is awesome! Thumbnails look really cool. Techicon is my favourite :)

  12. Daniel Scocco (2 comments.) says:

    Hey Keith, I love the new formate as well.

    By the way can you please fix the download link for GreenTech?

    Thanks man.

  13. matt (23 comments.) says:

    Nice change of format. Nice to see there is actually some form of thought on the theme other than just publicity.

  14. Scott (21 comments.) says:

    10 EXTRA CREDIT COOL POINTS for the thumbnails. Great layout. And actually, I like the PLUGINS and THEMES on one post!!! Nice and neat.

  15. XIII (9 comments.) says:

    Aye, much better. The format, combining plugins and themes, and I love the thumbnails.

  16. Mark Ghosh (386 comments.) says:

    Link Fixed.

  17. Jeff (27 comments.) says:

    Yep, the theme thumbnails and reviews are cool, but I come for the plugins. I see a lot more scrolling in my future. :)

  18. Guillermo (1 comments.) says:

    Excellent! The thumbnail prevents for doing click in the interesting (to me) themes.

  19. Matt (2 comments.) says:

    The new post format is AWESOME! Thanks for the screenshots. Now I can get a glimpse of the theme in the RSS feed I watch in Netvibes. Much, much nicer!

  20. Matt Wiebe (3 comments.) says:

    I will add my voice to the chorus of praise on the new format. Well done.

  21. Rex Ruthless says:

    Nice new format but I still prefer theme/plugin posts to be split up… since I would never in a million years have any use for a new theme but plugins? Gotta have ‘em to patch up all the feature failures of the WP core.

  22. Fraser (2 comments.) says:

    There’s a slight correction that needs to be made to the listing about the new plugin from AdaptiveBlue.

    We actually offer a simple plugin that allows you to display widgets from top services.

    Want to display your Netflix queue on your site – with a thumbnail and description and have it update automatically? Simply install the Netflix widget. The same is true for Last.fm or Amazon.

  23. NSpeaks (9 comments.) says:

    Please correct the link of Set Email From Address Plugin.

    Correct link is http://www.justinsamuel.com/co.....m-address/

  24. Kim (2 comments.) says:

    I *love* the screenshots and the new format! Thank you for your hard work keeping us informed of all the new themes and plugins in the WordPress world!

  25. Mark Ghosh (386 comments.) says:

    Link Fixed. Thanks NSpeaks.

  26. Fraser (2 comments.) says:

    Mark,

    Can you also fix the links and write up for the SmartLinks section – it’s actually personlized Widgets for Netflix Queue, Amazon Wishlist, and Last.fm playlists that we released.

    Each contains a SmartLink that allows you to monetize the content in a number of ways.

    The links are:

    My Starcraft 2 is cool

  28. Collin (6 comments.) says:

    TechIcon is cool, but it doesn’t actually fit in a 1024×768 screen on my laptop. :(
