I have a lot of themes in my test wordpress site. I get a little frustrated that I can't show more than 15 at a time.


In pages and posts you can click "screen options" to choose the number, but it looks like "Themes" has no such option.


Is there another way to increase the number?

It's hardcoded into the WP_Themes_List_Table class that's responsible on Line 50.

$per_page = 15;

So in short, you can't without modifying a core file.

Link to source.

It'll be 24 in 3.3, and perhaps someday we'll get a screen option: core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/19469 – helenhousandi Dec 7 '11 at 20:36
