Safely test drive any theme as an administrator, while visitors use the default one.
If the theme isn't working properly, then it messes up the entire wordpress website. Your website will still be up, but wordpress will turn up a blank page under administrator! You won't be able to change anything!
Hi, I used this plugin with my last theme test and it worked great! However, it looks like it may not work with the latest version of WordPress. Any change this plugin will be updated? I'd love to continue using it...
This no longer works with the lastest version of WordPress at all. Just a bunch of gobbly gook when I go to view theme.
I might be using it wrong, but the fact that you can´t assign Widgets or Menus to the "testing" theme renders this plugin nearly useless. I ended up making a duplicate of the install on a different folder (as usual)
I've used this plugin in the past which been a great help to me.
I'm sad to see that it's not updated anymore and does not seem to work at all with newer versions of WordPress.
Thanks for as long it lasted!
Initially, it DID work for me. Only I could see any changes to the site. I had my site open on another computer next to me, constantly checking to see if any changes made their way across from my possible new theme to my current theme. And they did. When I made some minor changes in the WordPress theme customizer, the background colour of my current theme was changed to that of the theme I was testing. I then spent a few frantic minuets trying to correct the problem, as my nice blue-white gradient had been replaced with a cream-grey that clashed horribly.
In other words, I could not install, tweak and test plugins without breaking the visitor experience, as advertised. Hence, 1 star.
Was a great idea to preview the theme, but when I wanted to update the menu or widgets it broke the entire live theme, not working as suggested by author that you can modify theme settings..
