Preview Theme not working (10 posts)

    I'm trying to preview a theme on my server but it is not working.

    My domain is http://www.edhidden.com.

    I've tried searching for an answer but nothing seems to work. Am I doing something wrong?

    If you are talking about the preview theme plugin - it works ONLY if you are logged in as admin.

    I am logged in as Administrator and viewing the site and it doesn't seem to be working (does it show up in the plugins panel... because I don't even see it there either to activate it.)

    Perhaps I installed it wrong? It goes in the plug-ins folder, right?

    If you on't see it in the PLugins section of your admin panel - then you definitely have it installed in the wrong location.

    Hmmm.... I have preview_theme.php
    placed inside /wp-content/plugins/

    That's right, isn't it?

    Theme Preview not showing up in my plugins - and I've installed millions of these things so it's NOT in the wrong place.

    Is Theme Preview compatible with WP2?

    stml - You're right - the Preview Theme plugin is broken with WP 2.1. I found an updated version that does work with 2.1:

    Surprised Ryan Boren hasn't updated his. But the other one does work.

    I recently updated the plugin to add a Preview Theme sub-menu to the Presentation tab.

    Hope that makes it easier.
