Toolbar Theme Switcher
Default Theme in Admin Area (3 posts)

    Just an FYI here, may not actually be a bug but it can be confusing.

    If you switch to a theme that is not the 'default' theme as defined in the WP administration area the display is not correct.

    For example if the site wide default theme is 'Twenty Eleven' and you have selected to use a different theme when you go WP-admin -> Appearance -> Themes the site wide default theme isn't displayed correctly and often times disappears from the list of themes installed.

    As I said may not be a bug but it's certainly confusing.

    Would also suggest a bullet or other indicator of the default menu in the toolbar.

    Great plugin, very helpful for demoing themes to clients.

    These are kinda side-effects of plugin functionality. There is no concept in WP of such dynamic theme switching and different users looking at different themes. Plugin just "tricks" code into displaying theme, that is different from actual (and exclusive) theme that is chosen via native functionality.

    It might make sense to just not do that on appearance screen, I will note down to look into that.

    Would also suggest a bullet or other indicator of the default menu in the toolbar.

    Makes sense, noting down to implement.

    Hm, I've revisited behavior in Appearance>Themes - but it is on best behavior right now. No issues I could see and/or reproduce. And I remember there were some before - but a lot of theme stuff changed in WP 3.4

    If you are still experiencing any please let me know and with more details of what you are doing and what goes wring with it.
