I'm running wordpress on my own host and would like to install the Ideation and Intent theme. I couldn't, however, find a place to download it from, nor can I search for it on my Wordpress dashboard under Appearance -> Themes.

The best I could find was this svn url: https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/ideation-and-intent/

Does anyone know how I can get the theme?

To get a theme or plugin for which you have just the SVN URL you need three steps:

  1. Install a SVN client. For Windows you might take TortoiseSVN.
  2. Create an empty directory where you need the code.
  3. Right click in that directory and use the Checkout command to download the code.

After you have clicked OK all the files are fetched from the remote repository.

Thanks! I ended up doing an "svn co" and zipping the file before uploading it to the site. – mottosan Sep 14 '12 at 12:39
Ideally, you'd actually want to do an svn export instead, so as to get a copy of the theme without the associated .svn directories. A checkout is a working copy with metadata, an export is just a copy of the files. – Otto Sep 14 '12 at 12:46
Ah TIL. Thanks! – mottosan Sep 14 '12 at 20:27
There's no need for SVN anymore, check this out: design311.com/wpthemes – user2019515 Mar 29 '13 at 12:48
@user2019515 Always use the latest version from the original source. I wouldn't trust third party services. – toscho Mar 29 '13 at 14:46
