    Sorry I don’t visit the forums much, but that’s because WordPress is so easy to use and I am pushing my own boundaries blogging, so I have not had to push WordPress. Happy New Year.

    As to my visit here…
    IMHO there needs to be a better search tool for THEMES here at WordPress.com. The problem is that searching only allows us to find themes by name and not by keyword.

    Is finding a theme by tagged keyword important? Just open the Google search page and start typing: “WordPress magazine themes” for instance. There are about 9,500,000 results, with all kinds of articles from people trying to inform the world of themes of a particular type. Statistically, that’s like 1 in 2 WordPress sites trying to help the world because we cannot go WordPress.com and search by tag.

    I like the look of your browsable pages, but I hope you’ll consider offering some search criteria so that I can spend my time well and get back to improving my site. I have a LOT of work to do.

    Thanks and Happy New Year!

    The blog I need help with is wordlinks.wordpress.com.

    You need to use the “feature filter.” A link to that is just to the right of the search box. There you can select how to filter your results.

    Also, wordpress introduced the new http://theme.wordpress.com/ site, which has larger screenshots and a ton more information. Click on the “explore themes” button at top right and then you can use the feature filter on that resulting page to filter by a ton of different criteria.
