    I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, because I’ve been exposed to some terrific themes here, but lately I’ve noticed so many themes being offered without demo links, making them… well, less-than-attention-worthy.

    Theme developers, be proud(er) of your work and let it shine via a demo page! Please!

  2. Barry (33 comments.) says:

    Ditto – I just don’t have the time to download, install and test a theme that I may not use. I’m much more likely to do so with a theme I’ve played with online first.

    I will provide a demo for my theme (Mad Meg) in the future, but since it is currently the theme on my own site, you can see it there with real posts (which I have made sure include gallery, single pictures, lists and different kind of posts). This is better I think because a) it shows that I use my own free themes and b) demo sites tend to be empty and therefore unrepresentative of real use.

    I agree with Stewart’s comment. I hate it when there is no DEMO/PREVIEW link.

  5. Ajay (209 comments.) says:

    I usually link the images to the demo link. Unfortunately, most authors don’t have a demo link :(

  6. Will (4 comments.) says:

    As soon as my theme (Fresh’d) gets approved in the WordPress Theme Repository, I’ll update the theme page and include links to the zip and demo. Until then, the theme can be viewed in action on my site as it is being used, minus some bells and whistles. Thanks for featuring my theme, Ajay. :)

    Okay… let me chime in while the “ungrateful” light is still lit:

    With such rich frameworks as Sandbox out and about… why release a new theme without one (or many) already integrated?

    now, what would I do with a Turkish theme? I’ve installed it hoping. I’ve uninstalled it quick.
    Why is posted here, where the readers are presumably English biased?

      I have a feeling that Weblog Tools Collection is read by more than just English speakers.

      If you look on the right column, you’ll see that it’s translated into 9 languages. And reading some of the comments on the site, you’d probably be able to figure out that English is not the first language of some of the posters.

      It’s a multi-national site, with a global readership. Would you propose that the rest of the world be excluded from using themes or plugins because they have to be for English-speaking people only?

      However, if you read this comment by the theme’s designer, you’ll see that an Englis version is in the works.

  9. tapirul says:

    I only wish it was more clear from the announcement here, I am not saying there should be only english themes. This coupled with what other commentators said about having a live preview. No big deal, just wasted five minutes of my life.
    About reading all the comments on all authors’ pages, I wish I had the time.

    I would not bother downloading a theme unless there was a demo version.
