#852: New Theme repository design: Bad user experience/ Design issues

 I have the following issues with the current state (2015-02-06):

 1) there's no link to a theme's author, I mean a link to its WordPress.org

 2) the last updated date in the tooltip is confusing for new and existing
 users who are browsing the repository

 3) missing link to theme page at the publisher's own web site: this is
 especially important for the users to get to a more "original" demo site
 of the theme --- the hosted preview at WordPress.org is not helpful at all
 to get an impression of the theme

 4) there is no search filter for child themes yet - the current search
 functionality is a mess to say the least

 5) no link to theme's own support forum/ tag on WordPress.org --- so it's
 totally unclear for the user where to get suppor and more info from the
 author/ publisher of the theme (see point 3 here too!)
