    i have just moved from b2evolution to wordpress as of last night, and i was going to edit the theme, but i don't like doing that while the site is live..

    i looked around on here, and found that the only ways around this are the obvious ones. i don't really want to get too much into installing and testing on a separate installation, so i had an idea..

    in b2evolution, you can specify a them to use in he url like:


    or something like that..

    i tried this in WP, but no luck.. i suppose i could look over the code for something like this..

    but i thought i would ask you guys first..

    is there a way to specify the theme through the url?

    this would sure take the edge off..

    Preview Theme plugin should do exactly what you are after: http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins/Admin_Tools

    The best way to do this is install WordPress on your computer, and just test from there.

    Or, you can use the Preview Theme plugin.
