Hi All,
1. Are there any sample themes (other than Modern?) I need them basically to understand how it works, and to create one of my own.
2. About Modern: Why can’t we just download the files? If it is just a simple file structure that needs to be added under app/design/frontend, then why don’t you, guys at Magento, let us (as an option), have them directly, in a simple zip file? I don’t know what this magento connect is doing, and I would like to maintain some degree of control over the project.
Thanks,
Ron

hey ron,

i recall seing a post from a company magento-themes.com?? or something similar to that effect that has one or two free themes.

in regards to point.2 I agree I wondered about this also, but i can see their process works well, as it will ensure your version is compatible with the theme you are trying to install. I ened up just setting up multiple dev wesbites to play with..
Ive been modifying the modern theme, using firebug to view the css+html, its been workiing well for me so-far.

Thanks for the tips.
They are called now http://www.ecommerce-themes.com/ . Magento didn’t allow that guy to include the word magento in his site’s name. I wonder if they can do that, but he chose to respect the request and changed the name.
Thanks,
Ron

Oh, and there was another one, Taleo, but it is unavalable now. The owner, Scott, has removed the download link, he says it is “outdated”. Maybe not matching the last version of magento.
And there is another site that gives some free themes: magthemes.com . I will take a look at that.
