If you run a WordPress MultiSite network where people can create their own blogs and choose a theme, it would be great to show off the available themes before people sign up. That’s always a been a bit hard to do, until now. This very simple plugin allows you to add a shortcode – [themebrowser] – to any post or page where you want the full list of enabled themes to show.
You can also paginate the themes by adding a “perpage” attribute to the shortcode, like this: [themebrowser perpage=”10″]
The list does not include themes that you have disabled in Site Admin. The details shown are the theme name, description and a screenshot (themes without a screenshot are also not included).
Install the plugin from the WordPress plugin repository and activate. Then add the [themebrowser] shortcode to any post or page for the list of themes to be shown.
- Why did you write this plugin?
To scratch my own itch when developing Wibsite.com. Hopefully this plugin helps other developers too.
- Does this plugin work with BuddyPress?
Yes, this plugin will work fine with BuddyPress.
