One-Click Install WP Themes

Way too many themes are included. The time needed to delete them via FTP makes the 1-click install more time consuming than helpful.

Why not just include a handful? I understand others might like a lot of options, but if they’ve gotten as far as creating a hosting account and using 1-click, they understand how to add their own template.

We’re actually working on a “vanilla” Wordpress install option right now. Historically, the large number of themes installed with Wordpress was a lot more useful with earlier versions of WordPress that didn’t let you install themes from within the wp-admin panel.

That would be an awesome feature Andrew.

Any thought on when it might roll out?

While I can’t commit to a specific date, it should be available “pretty soon” (e.g, you’ll probably be hearing about it it in the November or December newsletter).
