What’s In a Name: Duster

A lot of people have been asking where the name for the Duster theme came from. I love naming themes (it’s probably something that warrants a post of it’s own in the future) so I’m glad to share the backstory. We started work on Duster during a team meetup in Arizona β€” notorious land of cowboys and shoot ’em ups. We wanted something that reflected that same tough cowboy aesthetic and so, Duster. Well, actually, that’s only half true. It’s also the name of this really lovely pink flower you can find in Arizona. It’s really quite beautiful. πŸ™‚

  1. Well Ian, we know about your love in naming themes! But remember: nothing beats “Thematic”! πŸ˜‰ Cheers, Danny.

  2. Danny, I remember reading a post complaining about Thematic’s poor name when it first started becoming popular! I always liked the name though. πŸ™‚

    George and Jonathan: Yep! Duster is pending review for inclusion at the WordPress.org Theme Directory. It should be available there soon.

  3. Been eagerly waiting for Duster in WordPress.org directory. Love the theme at WordPress.com! Thanks.

  4. So quite a few folks waiting for the Duster theme to WordPress.org. Consider me on the same waiting list too. It’s a beautiful theme. How long do we have to wait? πŸ˜‰

  5. It’s tough to say when it will get approved and released but Duster has been submitted to the WordPress.org Theme Directory for review and inclusion.

  6. Looking forward to the release of this theme. I have the feeling this could end my eternal search for the right theme.

  7. I check back here and there to see if Duster is finally available for download … any news? I’m very eagerly, I’m sorry for that, but it’s like Sven said: Β«I have the feeling this could end my eternal search for the right theme.Β»
