Unclear on how to activate Theme Test Drive
I have read through the instructions and support threads, but nothing quite applies to what I see on my dashboard to activate the Theme Test Drive. I don’t want to screw up my site by not using TTD correctly.
I am using WP 3.1.3 (can’t change that due to my hosting service) and had to upload the TTD plugin via FTP. I then activated the plug-in in my dashboard. All good so far.
The TTD instructions say just go to the Admin page (dashboard I assume) and select “Design, Theme Test Drive. Select the theme you want to preview and click enable.” I don’t have “design.” When I choose TTD under “Appearance,” it asks for the URL of zip file of desired theme. That won’t work for me because of the FTP problem (can’t upload to host thru admin panel), and in any case I already have the themes I would like to test drive installed.
A very nice person on an earlier thread said “Log into your admin panel, and click theme test drive. You should see a box with a drop down. Select the theme you wish to edit, and click “enable theme test drive”. But that doesn’t appear on my dashboard either. No drop down menu or place to select themes on the TTD panel of the dashboard.
So, if I just activate a theme while the TTD is activated, using the regular command on the Appearance/Themes panel, will the current theme remain the one operating for those navigating to my site, and I’ll be able to test out the new theme? Am I missing a step?
Sorry to be so longwinded, just wanted to be comprehensive. Thanks for any thoughts/assistance. This will be very helpful if I can use it.
