[WordPress] Theme viewer plugin

Par défaut

Paco wanted a wordpress installation with one purpose: test different themes for the same blog.

The idea was nice, but know it’s even more fun with this new plugin: user controls which theme to display on the blog they are reading.

Try it yourself on lasindias.info

Theme viewer

There’re surely some more feature to add before the plugin is complete:

  • Use cookie to keep plugin whil navigating on the blog
  • Add form for admin to add or upload a new theme
  • Fun factor: save last selected theme as the default blog theme, users now control your blog presentation!
