  • Hi guys,

    I’m looking for a bit of help with a project I’m working on. Basically I have to provide a version of the site which is as accessible as possible. I have a theme in mind to use for this but i don’t want all users to be given this theme.

    What I’m trying to do is put a link and a notice in the top bar allowing users to click this link to change from my current theme with bells and whistles to a different theme which is as accessible as I can make it.

    Does anyone know of a way to change links via URL or a plugin that will allow me to put essentially a link in the topbar to change theme?

    I don’t want to have this in every sidebar just a nice little link in the topbar to switch back and forth.

    Any info is greatly appreciated so far i have found “theme switcher” but that seems to put a drop down box in the side bar which would take a screen reader too long to find. The top bar link would be found first I’m thinking thus making the whole thing easier.

    Thank you.

    It should be possible to modify a theme switcher plugin – either by re-positioning it using pure CSS or by actually hacking the code..

    Thanks. I’m looking at a few theme switchers just now but it doesn’t seem to give me the straight forward option I’m looking for.

    Will see what I can find or come up with I’m just trying to make things as accessible as possible without sacrificing overall user experience.
