Q: Why did you build ATS? Does WordPress not already has a search feature for themes?

A: Yes it does have a search feature, but we think there is room for improvement. We hope ATS will make it easier for WordPress admins to find themes they need. We especially wanted to have more flexibility to filter on more criteria. You can filter on the following criteria: Installs, Rating, Last update and more.

Q: I see some differences between ATS search and standard search. How’s that possible?

A: You will see in the theme operation that we take data from and store it on your sites server. The age of this data is displayed whenever you use ATS. If the data at is updated then you will need to download the data again. We dont control how often you download the data bu the age of the data on your server might explain any differences.
