Huh, this appears to be an intermittent error. It doesn't actually happen every time.

It is a known issue that the theme directory occasionally, and rarely, shows only one theme. It's a caching problem which is difficult to track down. Never seen it show zero themes though.

Given this is a known issue, that's still occuring (even if we've not been able to catch it with debug code) it's probably best to leave this open until it ceases to happen / be reported.

In 9524:

Theme Directory: Add some debugging to try to figure out the cause of none, or 1 theme only showing up on the Theme Directory homepage.

See #3215.

Theme Directory: Revert Debug added in r9524.

  • Owner set to dd32
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

In 9526:

Theme Directory: Don't use the global $wp_query object when querying themes.

This was causing cached results to be affected by other query params that WP_Query accepts through $_GET.

This will cause an increase in queries on same pages, but should be unnoticed thanks to the heavy caching we employ on these pages.

Debug left in to ignore caches with only 1 result, can be removed in a few hours after all caches expire.

Fixes #3215.
