    I'm interested to know if there is a way to view other installed themes, WITHOUT having to actually switch over to another theme.
    Something similar to: http://mydomain.com/index.php?theme=default or then http://mydomain.com/index.php?theme=classic
    I'm not interested in 'switching' the theme so that users can see it if just browsing the site...more for me to see the changes i have made.
    Thanks.

    Using:

    /index.php?wptheme=ThemeName

    Sets the theme to be used in your browser's cookie, but doesn't change it in WP.

    Also...

    This plugin performs user level checks and does not use cookies. You can use the theme switcher if you want to have a cookie that follows you around (useful when using permalinks). However, the theme switcher does not check user levels. I might add that ability to the theme switcher along with a means to exclude certain themes.

    Hmm. I remember someone saying "This sort of thing is going to be SO much easier in 1.5 with Themes..." not so very long ago.

    Looks like my psychic talents are in top form, thanks to Ryan. :)

    that was an easy install and config to get that working...the only thing that threw me at first was that the theme name is case sensitive when typing the link. thanks ryan!
