Making WordPress.org

#5605 closed defect (fixed)

Newly added theme gets assigned incorrect slug causing 404 errors on wp.org

I had my theme reviewed here: https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/92868

After an update, it made a new ticket, here: https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/94823

The reviewer closed the initial ticket and continued the review in the newest one and released it.

After release the theme URL is https://wordpress.org/themes/newsbloggerly-2/ instead of /newsbloggerly/ and it gives a 404 on the image and .zip, causing errors during download/installation.

If you click "View on Trac" button on the theme preview page, it gives a 404: https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/query?keywords=~theme-newsbloggerly-2

I sadly don't know what caused it :(

Would you please update the recently live theme once just upgrading the version?

Yes, doing it right away @kafleg

Seems like it opened a third ticket somehow: https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/94933

Would it be an idea to try setting the first ticket live and closing the 2 others, and then commit an update?

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

I think this one was a theme that I missed during cleanup.
I don't see any others that will be affected by it.

Marking as fixed as someone has already fixed it up.
