The User Level Themes plugin allows a site administrator to select different themes for users with and without administrative
access rights. This feature can be used to safely test a new theme while redirecting visitors to a known working theme. This plugin
utilizes the [Wordpress Plugin Framework] (http://www.doubleblackdesign.com/categories/wordpress-plugins/wordpress-plugin-framework/ “WordPress Plugin Framework”) to
provide a standard administration interface and allow for simplified plugin management.
This User Level Themes and WordPress Plugin Framework are being developed under the GNU General Public License, version 2.
