Theme Switcher Question (7 posts)

    I tried adding this, and the one thing I do not like is that it pulls in all themes, even one currently under development, as well as ones I do not want to have active.

    How can I get around this, and still be able to use the preview theme plugin?

    I am still not understanding.

    I want to have theme switcher LIVE on my site, and still be able to be building themes but not have them show in the theme switcher.

    That's why you use the preview plugin (I think? I understood that you could use both, but perhaps I'm confused?)

  5. Vkaryl, the theme preview plugin allows you to preview any theme without having to activate it in the Presentation menu. Unfortunately, this means that the theme still has to be listed in the presentation menu. Also unfortunately, the Theme Switcher plugin allows readers to chose any one of the themes listed in the Presentation menu. What Rori wants to know is how to work on developing a theme without making it available to the public. So, while the Preview Theme plugin is nice, it is of no help in this situation.

    Unfortunately, Rori, I have no clue. I don't use Theme Switcher. There may be an exclude function that Ryan built into the plugin but did not publicize. I'd recommend either contacting him, or setting up a separate development blog.

    Ah. I misunderstood the functionality. I thought you could use the theme switcher for the "public", and theme preview as well so you could tweak. Since I tweak locally most of the time, I hadn't realized they were mutually exclusive....

  7. Yeah, Preview Theme just allows you to view theme without you having to activate it. But, it doesn't mean that a reader can't activate it using the Theme Switcher. This is why I modify my themes around midnight. ^_-
