Definitely works for previewing pages of your site under different themes
By , for WP 3.8.1

Definitely works for previewing pages of your site under different themes by specifying the URL _GET parameter '?theme=themename'.

Make sure that the 'themename' matches the folder name of '/wp-content/themes/themename'

So if you want to preview your site with the Twenty Twelve theme, the appropriate URL would be:

http: // yoursite.com/?theme=twentytwelve

simplified theme testing!

great work. this makes theme development much easier! widgets are not working in preview but thats a negligible problem. its a real relief to be able to test a complete site with a new theme.

Does what it says it does

I installed and within a matter of seconds, chose the theme I wanted to work with before it went live. I can see the theme and move around the site with the new theme, others can't.
