#1513 closed enhancement

Theme Upload page confusion reducing enhancements — at Version 6

Description (last modified by Otto42)

This ticket was originally to add a new description to the uploader. Ticket #1514 was about adding a checkbox to confirm licensing and such.

Since these are both about changing the uploader page in similar ways, then let's consolidate the ticket to any relevant changes to prevent the problem of people uploading themes that are not theirs, possibly from confusion related to themes acquired from elsewhere and intended to be uploaded to their own sites.

Changing description and checkbox have been suggested. Other suggestions are welcome.

The number on the patch doesn't match the ticket b/c I created a ticket in the wrong place already. But this should work.

We already have an interim page that you have to go through:


Do we really need to add more?

@Otto42 - based on the amount of people that still upload their themes thinking they're uploading them to their site, unfortunately, yes. This is a minor text change that might help that issue.

There are other solutions being discussed which will have a broader affect, but will also take more time. This is quick and might make a difference.

Noting we have: #1514 as an option to add in a checkbox. Perhaps this can be combined? Also should this be in directory or theme review?
