MDC Theme Switcher

Description

BIG UPDATE

[new] Since 3.0.0, each of the visitors can set his own theme that won’t effect others’! We mean, there will be different themes for different visitors at the same time!

MDC Theme Switcher allows to choose and preview from available themes of a WordPress from front-end. Different themes for different visitors simultaneously!

Upon activation, it adds a sricky bar to front-end with a dropdown list of availabe themes. Admin can select which of the installed themes should be available in this list.

It also enables a shortcode [mdc_theme_swicher], that can be added anywhere of the WordPress. In a post, page or widget. Even in template files!

Messes with widgets

Desperately need something like this, but each time I switch themes, all widgets on all themes are messed up and take ages to configure again! Refreshing the page doesn’t work. Hoping for a less buggy version!

Fantastic, this actually WORKS!!!

I have tried for days to find a solution for this, tried nearly a dozen solutions. I have even paid for a couple of pluggins also on Envato, nothing works like this one.

Until further notice, this is the ONLY pluggin in existence in the world than can achieve this, bravo to developer, you should charge for this!

Wreaks havoc with widgets

Works pretty well. However, if you’re logged in as an admin or you hit the back button after switching themes, this plugin seriously messes with my widgets. It resets them all to default or moves them around the page. Had to deactivate until a fix can be found for this.
