Theme Switch and Preview

Allows admins or all visitors to switch the blog theme. Has a restricted preview mode for your clients and includes a widget.

Q: I need the plugin to work for everybody, not just logged in users.
A: This is possible since 0.6.0.

Q: The preview links don't work!
A: Please check if you have some cache activated, that will most likely prevent the preview links from working. WP Super Cache only works in HALF ON mode.

Q: The previews look broken!
A: Do you use a complex theme with theme options? Some themes need to be activated for real at least once before they work.

Q: How do I exclude themes from being shown in the widget or the cloud?<br/> A: Add Status: unpublished to the header of the theme's style.css.

Q: I use a >= 3.0 multisite install and don't want inactive themes to be shown on certain blogs. Anything I can do?<br/> A: Add define( 'NKTHEMESWITCH_LOAD_MS', true ); to your install's wp-config.php. Careful, this might break on upgrades as I had to copy stuff from wp-admin/ into the plugin. Not very likely but possible. I'm not sure I'll continue to support this in the future. I probably won't test it, so report any bugs.

Q: My site went blank when I used your plugin, what should I do?<br/> A: Deactivate the plugin in the admin section. Remove the plugin files from your server if that doesn't work.
