Theme Viewer

We know you love themes and we know you like to try new ones. With our new super-charged theme viewer this is now even easier than before.

overview-1

The new theme viewer lets you quickly step through themes without reloading the page. You can search for specific words (for example, ‘orange’), and you can filter by requirements (for example, ‘two columns’).

filters

Still not sure what to pick? The random feature will select 15 themes at random, which may help jog your inspiration. Want to pick something that few others are using? You can also view themes in order of their popularity. Join in with everyone else or be independent, the choice is a few clicks away.

Still can’t find a theme to your liking? Don’t forget our Sandbox theme. It’s a simple and clean theme that is designed to be used with the CSS upgrade to give you control over how your blog looks (check out this site for Sandbox examples). If you’re not too sure about using CSS then our recently introduced CSS revisions feature will give you the reassurance that if something goes wrong you can quickly jump back to an earlier version.

If you haven’t changed your theme in a while then give the new theme viewer a try – you may discover a whole new look!

Full details about the theme viewer can be found on the theme viewer support page.

    I love the “preview” option. I wasn’t sure which one to get so I just browsed around using the random option to try on random themes. Out of a thumbnail, the theme I have right now wouldn’t have been my first choice at all but seeing it live really helped a lot!

    I really like my theme — Vigilance by Jestro — so am not inclined to want to change at this time. But, I still like to look at the new themes. Each one has good things about it. It’s nice to be able to check them out more easily. Thank you.

    The one thing I would like to adjust in my theme is how a visitor has to do a lot of clicking if they are trying to check through the archives. It’s like trying to find one’s way through a maze when blindfolded. I wish that clicking on the archive button would just give all the titles for at least a month’s worth of posts, and the visitor can just click on a title they are interested in. Seeing everything at a glance is better than seeing only one item at a time and having to make a few clicks to get to that one post.

    Much appreciated :)

    BTW, I think most people would prefer if the default were “A-Z” and not “Random”.

    Something that doesn’t reload the page is always nice. Between, there’s a little problem of line up in the italian version: it’s under the the voice Column.

    Thank you for the update of Theme Viewer.

    Cool Feature This.

    I wonder whether we can have this on the blog homepage itself…you know, a widget with 3-4 themes that the readers (Yes, the readers, not the blog owner) can click and select the theme they like best to view the site in.

    good. More themes would be nicer. Also allowing customize themes would be quite normal (blogger and others allow it) . Can’t see reasons to not allow javascript or upgrade and mess up with themes.
