Certain pages, different theme (7 posts)

    I would like to have a certain page on my wp-site to be shown in a different theme I have also installed.

    How do I do this?

    I've been searching for well over an hour now and did find some things related, but none are too clear how to actually go about this.

    Thanks,
    BBM

    I don't actually know if this can be done but if I were to try to do it I'd try hooking into one of the higher order action hooks. You are going to have to interrupt the load process before you get to get_header() it looks like, and reset your template on a page by page basis. I expect it could get hairy.

    Is this something you can't do with custom templates and CSS?

    There used to be a function which would change themes on the fly. It went like adding ?wptheme='theme_name' to the url, but this doesn't work anymore.
    Some Theme-samplesites used to work like this aswell I think.

    I remember using a plugin that would do that but the switch didn't stick once you clicked a link. There are another couple of threads on the forums about this and no one seems to know of an easy way to do it-- at least, of the few threads I read, no one mentioned an easy way.
