This plugin allows you to preview your themes or to allow users to preview a theme on the front end.
It renders a different theme for the user on your site without changing the current theme. It also offers a
download link for the previewed theme provided that the theme is in the “wp-content/themes” directory of your
wordpress installation. In version 1.2 a theme shopping cart was added to enable you sell your precious premium
themes. After a user buys your theme he/she will be redirected back to your site and he’ll will be registered using
the email he purchased with. The transaction is saved and client can now download his theme from the sidebar.
There’s a catch though, the client must be logged in to download his/her premium theme(s). If all your themes are
free, no login is required. Users can just download whenever…
Note: this plugins only pulls themes from your
wp-content/themes directory, the same directory where zipped files will be stored.
