Safely test drive any theme as an administrator, while visitors use the default one.
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
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.
ok, after a week of testing and tweaking my new theme with the help of this fantastic plug-in, I have just switched my production site over. what an amazingly simple transition... many thanks.
This plugin is super handy for development of new themes.
Thank you for making this invaluable plugin freely available. I was able to configure my new theme without any worries!
Your plugin is a godsent, loving it! Now I can switch themes slowly but surely without my visitors seeing some half-assed sh1t.
Just does what it should do
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.
Extends on Donncha's theme tester very nicely, Thanks Vladamir!
