Remove dead sites from Showcase

Reported by: bradleyt's profile bradleyt Owned by: otto42's profile Otto42
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Showcase Keywords:


I have noticed that the Showcase lists a number of sites which are either dead or unavailable and I´d like to suggest these are removed from the listings:

Original site no longer avialable:

No longer running WordPress:

Nb: I only originally planned to report a couple of links, but then kept noticing more! Having looked through the sites currently in the showcase I have a lot of concern about the overall quality of showcase sites, and how these are monitored (or rather the lack of active monitoring and upkeep). I'll plan to open another ticket with some ideas for keeping on top of dead sites in the next few days.

Thanks for the report and investigation! In the time since this ticket was created, a completely new theme was implemented and released for the WordPress Showcase.

The code is available at, where development, feature requests, and bug reports are being handled.

As part of the site's relaunch, all listed sites were reassessed. As a result, all of the sites listed here are no longer part of the Showcase.
