Early in th' development o' th' “themes” support in WordPress, I bugged Ryan Boren fer a “preview” feature, we'll keel-haul ye! And hoist the mainsail! Instead, he wrote a Theme Switcher Plugin, which wasn’t what I wanted (but were bein' still a cool thin' t' have). Now, he’s finally written a Theme Preview Plugin.
The thin' is, I had already given up on that scurvey dog and written me own, weeks ago. I just ne'er got aroun' t' documentin' it and writin' it up.
- Ryan’s has user-level checks (only level 8 or higher can preview), mine doesn’t
- Mine does error checkin' t' ensure that th' theme actually exists
- Mine allows ye t' separately specify which theme t' pull th' CSS from. This is because th' themes themselves allow ye t' specify th' style separately from th' templates. This is actually somewhat redundant, but I tossed it in fer experimentation, in case I wanted t' override th' stylesheet.
There, now ye have a choice. Aarrr, I'll warrant ye! And choice is always good. Ryan, feel free t' add me plugin’s biological distinctiveness t' yer own
