switching themes on the fly using the following approach
as a plugin (when done within functions.php, oh boy, the header.php wasn't switching and it was a mess.. any thoughts on this also appreciated).
When done with "full bodied" themes, works great. When I try to switch to a child theme, it blows up (blank browser page). The child theme works just fine when activated from the dashboard directly. The child theme, at this stage, is only a style.css that imports the parent's css.
Any thoughts on where this is going wrong or on a work around? TIA!
