A nice idea, works better than WP's own native preview functionality!

Fantastic and much needed!

What a great plugin - this has resolved the worst issue of WordPress, which is not being able to work on a new theme behind the scenes whilst another theme is live. Now you can with this plugin! It's great. No more fiddling with urls and pointing or transferring websites over. Thanks very much!

Super awesome/helpful plugin!

This is so great for switching themes on a site. You (as an admin) can see the new theme and begin working with it, while everyone else sees the old theme. Pretty straightforward, but super helpful, especially in situations where you don't want to "fork" your site and work on changes on a separate WP install.

Definitely works for previewing pages of your site under different themes
By , for WP 3.8.1

Definitely works for previewing pages of your site under different themes by specifying the URL _GET parameter '?theme=themename'.

Make sure that the 'themename' matches the folder name of '/wp-content/themes/themename'

So if you want to preview your site with the Twenty Twelve theme, the appropriate URL would be:

http: // yoursite.com/?theme=twentytwelve

simplified theme testing!

great work. this makes theme development much easier! widgets are not working in preview but thats a negligible problem. its a real relief to be able to test a complete site with a new theme.
