Further Information

More information can be found at


  • The theme before I activate some theme.
  • The theme after I activate another theme. Obvious the look is not change.


To install, simple extract the ‘anytheme-lock-theme.php’ file into your ‘wp-content/plugins/’ directory and activate the plugin.

You should make sure your lock theme exist.


Why do you force me to change the php code?

Just for one and the only reason:

Because this plugin is made to help developers to lock the design of the WP site, and the end user cannot change this design very easy.

Where I find the correct template, stylesheet and theme vars?

In plugin code, by default the locked theme is Twenty Ten

$anytheme_lock_theme = 'Twenty Ten'; 
$anytheme_lock_stylesheet = 'twentyten'; 
$anytheme_lock_template = 'twentyten'; 

If you want to set another lock theme you just have to modify these vars.

$anytheme_lock_theme = 'The name of new lock theme';
$anytheme_lock_stylesheet = 'folder-name-of-theme-from-wp-content/themes';
$anytheme_lock_template = 'folder-name-of-theme-from-wp-content/themes';

*** usually the template and stylesheet have the same name
