The official subject directory, the famous repository of WordPress.org themes has been redesigned which it was already missing, with that aspect of the year catapun operative, unattractive.
And the best thing is that you will not have to learn how to navigate the themes in the new design because has adopted the navigation aspect of the same WordPress yes, the one you have on your website, so you already know how to use it.
But the best of the best is the preview, which reproduces the customizer from WordPress with which the preview of a subject before downloading it, and the navigation itself between them, is really intuitive, practically perfect.
WordPress plugin directory has just come to light, with a search engine included, really interesting which improves the functionalities of the official repository in many ways. from WordPress.org. "target =" _ blank "> plugin directory WordPress, with search engine included, really interesting, that comes to improve the functionalities of the official repository of WordPress.org in many places.
The directory, without spirit of profit, check all the plugins that are that we have in the official repository of WordPress.org and shows them in their own environment, but with some extra features like these:
- Check the WordPress.org plugins every day to update the database.

] Everything you have in.
Certainly the design is not what I like most about the site, mostly because of the colors chosen, but is much more visual than the official repository and , above, offers extra features .
There are parts that are less complete than on the official website, how the description, or that there is no page with the installation information and change log, but you offer a link to the page of each plugin if you need it. A lack for my unacceptable taste is the compatibility information with the latest WordPress version.
If I find the related links section great. I do not know the criteria, and it should be improved, but it is very useful to know what others think about the plugin before installing it.
And, of course, something that should already incorporate the official repository is the installer like the one with RankWP simple to add and very practical. The same for the graph of evolution of popularity, it is worth a plugin have many stars but from when?
In any case is a new option, and very nice, for to know and install plugins in WordPress .
