WP Theme Changelogs


The WP Theme Changelogs plugin allows you to view the changelog before updating a theme, very similiar to the available changelogs for plugins.

How does this work?

The plugin parses the readme.txt of the theme to get the changelog details. In order to work, your theme must have a valid readme.txt including a changelog section.


  • Theme Updates List
  • Changelog Box


  1. Activate the plugin
  2. Go to Dashboard > Updates to see a list of available theme updates
  3. Click on “View version x.xx details” to open the changelog before updating

Hace lo que promete. Ojalá pronto sea obligado poner los changelogs en archivos readme.txt en el directorio de temas. Y sino que se incluya esta funcionalidad en el núcleo de WP
